It is now possible to buy an Apple Watch SE from Apple a little cheaper, with Apple now selling certified refurbished models from its online store. While it appears Apple is also preparing to sell refurbished Apple Watch Series 6.
On the Australian Apple store, Apple Watch SE and Apple Watch Series 6 has been added to the refurbished store. Joining other refurbished Apple Watch models Apple started to sell earlier in the year – including Apple Watch Series 5.
Pricing starts at just A$359 for a refurbished 38mm Apple Watch SE, while the larger 44mm starts at A$399. Prices that are A$80 off the recommended retail price (RRP) of new, a decent saving considering discounts on Apple Watch models are hard to find. Pricing does vary depending on the size of the watch and whether it has cellular connectivity.
