Here’s how you can get a cracked Apple Watch screen fixed
The best way to get your cracked Apple Watch screen repaired is by sending it to an authorised Apple repair centre. While iPhones and other Apple products can get repaired in the Apple Store, Apple Watches get relayed to the Apple repair centre. This is because Apple doesn’t ‘repair’ a cracked screen, it simply sends you a new or refurbished unit back. If you take your Apple Watch to an Apple Store, they will simply forward it to the repair centre.
Screen cracks aren’t covered by an Apple warranty. If you end up damaging your Apple Watch’s screen, you will have to pay extra for repairs. However, if you use the Apple Watch Series 2 or Series 3, there is an Apple Watch Screen Watch Replacement program that may help you get your screen fixed for free. Under this program, if a crack develops around the dial of your Apple Watch Series 2 or Series 3, you can get it replaced for free as long as the watch is still under warranty.
Getting the screen of your Apple Watch repaired can cost you anywhere between $219 to $800, depending on the model of your watch. Usually, repairing the Apple Watch SE is considerably cheaper than, say, the Titanium Apple Watch. Apple also has a ‘Get an estimate’ tool on its Support website, which you can use to figure out the ballpark amount when it comes to the cost of repairing your watch’s screen. If you have an Apple Care+ plan, the repair costs will be considerably lower.
