Faulty Apple Watch Series 2 battery? Apple will fix it for free

How an Apple watch saved US woman’s life Apple will repair some Apple Watch 2 models that have swollen batteries or won't power on for free

Eligible devices are any 42mm Series 2 Apple Watch models in the Sport, Nike+, Hermès, and Edition lines.

Apple has released a new service policy regarding the Apple watch Series 2. 42mm Series 2 models plagued by either of these issues, including swollen batteries that have dislodged the display, are eligible for free repairs.

The document was obtained by MacRumors and suggests that Apple Watch Series 2 models may not power on for some reason and may experience swollen battery issues.

The program is available to customers for three years after the original date of purchase, and repairs can be scheduled at an Apple Store or at an Apple Authorized Service Provider.

The new policy does not apply to Apple Watch Series 1 and Series 3 models, nor the 38mm model.

Winter weather advisory issued for parts of MA this weekend
Ice build up of 10 to 20 mm is pretty likely across the region by Sunday morning. For greater Concord, freezing rain is in the forecast before 9 a.m.

On Apple's support page on its website, it says that "many issues can be resolved" by restarting the Watch, which can be done by holding the side button, sliding power off on the screen, then once again holding the side button to switch it on.

Will you be taking advantage of Apple's revised service agreement?

Apple implemented a similar policy regarding those as well. Apple is now offering Apple Watch Series 2 models with expanded batteries or which are having troubling turning on.

Apple is certainly no stranger when it comes to battery-related issues concerning its products, ranging from battery shortages impacting the company's ability to fix older MacBooks to an iPhone battery overheating and smoking in an Apple Store, forcing its evacuation. Let us know in the comments.
