Ah, gotcha (I already replied to your post in the other thread) --I regret to state that my current AW finally failed, last worked last saturday and yesterday found that the watch does not detect wrist and the sensor panel behind became loose and able to rotate around, rendering no green lights and hence unable to read heart rate too. Wore it since last year early July.
Replacing it according to my local Apple service centre, is very costly. Therefore I made my decision to await the Watch 2.
Actually I've called the main service centre here in Singapore (and yes, we've no Apple Store as currently it's still under construction, will be opened this fall) and was told that they will send to main Apple office for a one to one replacement, but at a hefty cost of S$600 (US$444 approx.) as I do not have AppleCare and warranty just expired last month. Lead time is 5 to 7 working days.Ah, gotcha (I already replied to your post in the other thread) --
The back coming off is a known issue. Contact Apple directly and they'll probably just swap it for a replacement. I've read they'll do it when out of warranty, too.
Discussion at Apple's support site (not necessarily the source of the above quote, but you may have to step it up above your local service center):Apple has determined that under certain conditions on some Apple Watch and Apple Watch Sport devices the back cover may separate from the watch case. Apple will service eligible devices free of charge.
Apple will authorize coverage for two years from the date of purchase or until June 18, 2017.
I'm also looking for the official quote from Apple on this but can't seem to find. Will be extremely useful if I could screenshot it and show them.This is the quote to which I'm referring. I'm looking for its source and any more details:
