Apple today began selling certified refurbished Apple Watch wearable devices through its website.
Series 1 and 2 models are available, although the online store does not currently have any of the original 2015 Apple Watch models in stock. (Hat tip to MacRumors for reporting the news earlier today.)
Prices for the refurbished products range from $229 to $509. The current Series 1 Watch, which features a S1P dual-core chip that’s upgraded from the original Watch starts at $269. Meanwhile, the Series 2 Watch, which includes built-in GPS, starts at $369. With the offers that are available at the moment, Apple isn’t cutting more than $90 or 16 percent off the prices of new versions. But there might be better offers if Apple were selling refurbished 2015 models.
Apple hasn’t disclosed revenue or unit sales for the Watch, which it first introduced in 2014. Earlier this month, IDC estimated that Apple sold 1.1 million watches in the third quarter, down 71 percent year over year.
Last month, Apple started selling refurbished iPhones on its website.
