Apple adds one more year of warranty to first-gen Watches

Apple will still repair your first-gen Apple Watch if it breaks due to battery issues even if it’s already older than two years. The tech titan has extended its wearable’s repair coverage related to battery woes to last two years instead of one, according to a note Apple sent to authorized repair centers that 9to5mac got its hands on. If you include its first year with limited warranty, the device’s owners can enjoy three years of coverage, and it’s all thanks to a several reports complaining of batteries ballooning inside their timepieces.

Some posts on Reddit and on Apple’s discussion board talk about how their first-gen Watches’ batteries ballooned and displaced the screens like what happened in the image above. It doesn’t seem to be a huge issue, and we haven’t seen anyone claim that their device exploded or caught fire like Samsung’s Galaxy Notes did. Still, it’s definitely good to know Apple can help if anything happens to your smartwatch, especially if you bought it when it was first released in 2015.
