Apple will fix Series 2 watch batteries for free

I personally hope they go forward with it since it'd be pretty cool to be able to install new watch faces on my Apple Watch. So let's dive in to see some more details on the matter.

"Apple has determined that under certain conditions, some Apple Watch Series 2 devices may not power on or they may experience an expanded battery", said a document sent to Apple Stores and Apple Authorized Service Providers.

Secretly Apple approved a service policy that will fix 42mm Series 2 models for free when they either won't power on or have a swollen battery, including those whose battery has expanded to the point where the display has popped loose according to MacRumors. All variants of the 42mm Series 2 Watch are covered, including the Sport, Edition, Hermes, and Nike+ models. The program does not, however, apply to any Series 1 or Series 3 models, nor does it apply to any 38mm models. This action is subject to only watch the second series, the first and third, the exemption does not apply.

To provide assistance to users, Apple is now offering required services for the aforementioned issues for free on eligible devices. It is also important to note that the length of time for the service is three years from the time of purchase.

Users have experienced their Apple Watch Series 2 batteries expanding in size without any reason.
