We realised that not everyone is the same. A great device for one person may not be the same for another.


That's why we've organised each of our top-selling Apple Watches into three categories to accommodate various needs: the best of all time, the best value for money, and the ideal choice for first-time buyers.


Each of these devices listed below has also undergone a comprehensive check to ensure it works like new.


Plus, although battery life varies with general usage, they also come with at least 80% battery health to ensure you have enough battery life cycles to last for years to come.

The Best of all Time

Even with the new Apple Watch Series 9 on the scene, the refurbished Apple Watch Series 8 still packs a punch, considering its price range.


The Series 8 maintains the same design implemented in the Apple Watch Series 5, showcasing an Always-On Retina screen encased in a rectangular frame. 


With this one, you gain a range of beloved features, such as health monitoring and fitness tracking apps, designed to support a healthy lifestyle and provide insights into your daily activities.
