Your Apple Watch 2 with swollen battery could be fixed for free

Your Apple Watch 2 with swollen battery could be fixed for free”

"Apple has determined that under certain conditions, some Apple Watch Series 2 devices may not power on or they may experience an expanded battery", the memo reads.

Apple will fix some Apple Watch Series 2 devices if they have a swollen battery or don't turn on, according to a new service policy seen by MacRumors. An exact description of minimum requirements for eligibility was not included, but Apple is offering free repairs to those devices that do fall under the criteria.

The eligible devices are just the 42mm series, including the Nike and Hermes editions. It is also important to note that the length of time for the service is three years from the time of purchase. Apple will also fix watches when the display pops out of place due to the same issue. The program does not include the 38mm versions.

Apple implemented a similar policy regarding those as well. The announcement came after reports that users were affected by swollen batteries. The fix program announced last year is also for up to three years.

Apple Watch users have for years complained of expanded, or swollen, batteries across multiple device generations. Those who do have the problem can visit an Apple Store or Authorized Service Provider, where it will be repaired for free. The company will now fix swollen batteries for free. The $29 iPhone battery replacement program will last through December 2018. Like most lithium-ion battery packs, the pouches used to power Apple Watch are susceptible to swelling and expanding when punctured, overcharged, overheated or otherwise damaged.
