Types of Apple Watch repair services
Some of the most common types of Apple Watch repair services our iTechs offer include:
- Cracked screen: although Apple boasts a “crack resistant front crystal” for its Series 7 Watch products, all Apple Watch screens are still prone to cracking. Replacement screens can be procured and fitted by iTechs.
- Screen popping out of casing: many Apple Watch owners have experienced the screen popping out of the watch casing altogether, which can come from older, swollen batteries. Our iTechs can resolve this problem.
- Digital crown issues: while newer Apple Watch models boast IP dust resistance ratings, older models can become sluggish or unresponsive due to built-up dust and gunk. Our iTechs can clean your Apple Watch digital crown and resolve any underlying issues with responsiveness.
- Battery & power issues: the Apple Watch has a notoriously short battery life, achieving 18 hours at best. If your Watch is unable to charge or holds a significantly smaller charge than anticipated, there may be a problem with the battery or charger.
- Device overheating: some Apple Watch users have complained of the SE models overheating after the screen has sustained damage. iTechs can help resolve problems of overheating.
- Water damage: although newer Apple Watch models are advertised as suitable for swimming and boast an IP rating, older models should not be submerged in water. If your Apple Watch has sustained water damage, our iTechs may be able to assist you.
- Device not turning on: if your Apple Watch is unresponsive or does not turn on when you rotate your wrist, the problem may be due to the battery or it may be a system issue. Our iTechs can resolve these problems.
Since the initial release of the Apple Watch (1st generation) in 2015, Apple has generally improved many of the early quirks with its newer iterations. Nevertheless, problems do persist and that’s where iTechs can help.
Do all iTechs provide the same services?
Most of the iTechs listed on iTechnician tend to specialise in iPhone repair, iPad repair, and Mac repair services, although many also work with Apple Watch products due to their widespread popularity.
Some factors that Apple Watch owners should consider are the availability of parts and components from third-party Apple repair technicians as well as their expertise in working with Apple Watch products. Screens, for example, were notoriously difficult to procure for the earliest models due to the novelty of smartwatches in 2015.

Which Apple Watch models can our iTechs repair?
iTechs can help provide you with quick and affordable repairs for a wide variety of Apple Watch models ranging from the early 1st generation up to Series 7, SE, and the various collections thereof, including Nike+, Hermès, and Edition variants.
As of 2022, Apple no longer provides support for Apple Watch (1st generation), Series 1, and Series 2 devices. These older devices may be repaired by a third-party Apple device technician such as those found right here on iTechnician.
Is a faulty Apple Watch worth selling?
Our iTechs will endeavour to provide you with speedy, affordable repairs for your Apple Watch whenever possible. If there’s a problem that they simply cannot fix, either due to a lack of supported parts or components, the device is beyond repair, or repairs will cost more than purchasing a new model, the device may simply be worthless.
As with all electronics waste (e-waste), Apple Watches need to be properly discarded with other e-waste. Rare earth minerals and salvageable components within the device may have some value, however, so your iTech may be able to offer you a small amount in cash for your broken Apple Watch.

This is a really big “it depends,” but consider the following:
- Complexity: many Apple Watch problems can be solved without opening up the device, but if the device needs to be opened the repairs may be much more complex and therefore cost more.
- Parts & labour: if your Apple Watch requires replacement parts or components, the iTech will charge you for these parts as well as the labour required to repair the device. Software-related issues will only cost labour.
- Warranty: in accordance with English consumer laws, Apple Watch products sold in England are covered by a mandatory one-year warranty from the initial date of purchase. Products that are out-of-warranty will therefore cost more to repair than those still under warranty.
- AppleCare+: Apple Watch owners that have opted for AppleCare+ can enjoy incidental damage repairs twice per year with a £49 to £55 excess, depending on the Watch model.
- Location: if you intend to drop off your Apple Watch in-store, the cost will often be lower than if you require the iTech to come to your location.
- Service availability: if you require urgent Apple Watch repairs during the evening, weekend, or bank holidays, the iTech may charge a premium fee for off-hours service.
