Apple will fix Series 2 watch batteries for free

The new service program began yesterday, according to a leaked internal document...

Apple this week initiated a new service program that grants free, out of warranty repairs to Apple Watch Series 2 owners whose device suffers from a swollen battery or refuses to turn on.

Owners of affected eligible devices can gain access to free servicing by visiting the Contact Apple Support page and clicking through the options for "Apple Watch" "Battery, Power, and Charging" "Bring in for Repair" in order to book an appointment for an assessment. The free fix only applies to Series 2 watches in the 42mm variant and that includes all models of this watch. MacRumors says that this does not apply to Series 1 or three models, nor the 38mm model. Warranty status does not matter for this issue. Like most lithium-ion battery packs, the pouches used to power Apple Watch are susceptible to swelling and expanding when punctured, overcharged, overheated or otherwise damaged. Apple notes, however, that all models will be subject to a "visual-mechanic" inspection prior to service. The company will now fix swollen batteries for free. Apple will also fix watches when the display pops out of place due to the same issue. Apple has nearly always replaced or serviced such devices and generally covers expanded batteries past the 1-year warranty date, regardless of a program such as this.
