Online buyback stores often offer competitive cash payouts. The value you receive will depend on factors like the watch's size, connectivity (GPS or Cellular), and overall condition.
There are differences in trade-in values between GPS-only and GPS + Cellular models of the Apple Watch. Typically, models with cellular connectivity have higher trade-in values than GPS-only models.

This process allows you to see the individual value of each watch based on its specific characteristics like connectivity, watch size, style, condition, and locked status. Preparing each watch separately ensures you get an accurate appraisal for each device.
