Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know what my Apple Watch Series 1 is worth?
We want you to be happy with your offer from GadgetGone. So before selling your Apple Watch Series 1, it’s a good idea to get multiple price quotes to make sure you’re getting the best trade-in value for resale. Aside from getting your instant GadgetGone offer, a great way to assess the potential value of your used Apple Watch Series 1 is by taking a look at Apple’s trade-in page. While Apple’s offers are generally on the lower end, it will give you a good baseline to check the fair market value. Keep in mind if you choose to sell your watch through Apple, you’ll receive your payout as an Apple gift card, not cash.
Some other popular places that will give you a quick Apple Watch valuation include Best Buy, Target, GameStop, Verizon, and uSell. Remember that if you find a better price from any of these companies, GadgetGone will beat it with our PriceMatch+ Guarantee. Just message us to let us know the company you’d like to price match. Keep in mind that you’ll always get more money if your Apple Watch is a newer model in good condition.
Here are some examples of how much GadgetGone is paying for different models at the time of writing (June 2020).
Apple Watch Series 5 trade-in value: $135 (44mm, GPS only, Aluminum, Good Condition)

How do I factory reset my Apple Watch before selling?
The most important thing to do before selling your Apple Watch is to wipe your data. The fastest way to reset your Apple Watch to factory settings is to unpair it from your iPhone. Follow these directions to unpair your Apple Watch:
1. Open the Watch app on your iPhone.
2. Find the Apple Watch you want to unpair.
3. Click Unpair Apple Watch.
4. Enter your Apple ID and password to begin unpairing.
5. Keep your iPhone near your Apple Watch for the duration of the unpairing process. Once your Apple Watch boots to the home screen, it’s ready to be used by a new user.
Can I sell my used Apple Watch Series 1 even if it's broken?
Yes! GadgetGone accepts Apple Watches in a variety of different conditions, from brand-new to broken. We’re the best place to sell your broken Apple Watch because unlike other trade-in sites, we’ll pay you a fair price.
Have an old Apple Watch with a cracked or damaged screen that works perfectly otherwise? Don’t settle for lackluster offers from one of our competitors. Select our special “cracked” condition category and get paid more than with any other buyback program. You can even sell watches that are water damaged, bent, or that won’t turn on. No matter the issue, you’ll always get the most cash by trading in your cracked or broken Apple Watch with GadgetGone.
Can I sell more than one Apple Watch?
Definitely! Heck, you can sell devices of all kinds to GadgetGone, not just Apple Watches. Whether you have multiple Apple Watches of the same model or a bunch of different models, you can add any quantity necessary to your cart when getting your initial quote. We even accept bulk trade-ins from wholesale sellers or companies looking for IT asset recovery.
Does it matter which carrier I have?
Not at all! All GPS + Cellular models of Apple Watches come unlocked right out of the box and can be used with any network. Before selling your Apple Watch, you should cancel any active data plans so you don’t continue to be billed.
Do I have to sell my Apple Watch Series 1 after I get a quote?
Nope! All of our quotes are obligation-free. You don’t have to ship your Apple Watch unless you’re happy with the amount we’ve offered. And if for some reason you change your mind after sending it in, we’ll mail your used watch back to you for free—no questions asked.
How long do I have to ship?
Your quote is locked in for 14 days from the time you check out on our website. As long as the USPS tracking number shows you shipped your used Apple Watch within those 14 days, your offer amount is guaranteed.
You can still ship your Apple Watch after the 14-day, price-lock period (some of our customers wait 30 days or more); however, your watch will be subject to whatever our current pricing is at the time of evaluation. Earlier is always better, but feel free to ship your Apple Watch whenever you’re ready to sell!
Do I need to include any accessories?
Would we like you to? Yes, please! Do you have to? No, unless you are selling a brand-new, unopened Apple Watch in its original packaging. Unlike most other buyback companies, we get that things happen and it isn’t always possible for you to include all the accessories when trading in your used Apple Watch. So, with GadgetGone, the price that you see is the price that you get—with or without the original charger and watch band (with the exception of brand-new smartwatches).
However, for the sake of your old Apple Watch’s future owner, we always request that you ship your watch in its original packaging with all the included accessories whenever possible.
