Apple Watch Ultra 2 joined the official Apple Certified Refurbished store. This lets buyers save $120 on the top-of-the-line smartwatch that hit the market just a few months ago.

Buying refurbs from Apple is a popular way to save on used electronics that can be relied on.

New chip improves the premier wearable

The highlight of the Apple Watch Ultra 2 from autumn 2023 is a faster S9 chip that also increases the wearable’s already considerable battery life. It also has a brighter display and support for the cool double-tap gesture.

Like its predecessor, the device features a 1.92-inch OLED screen built into a rugged titanium chassis with an Action Button.

It’s for extreme sports enthusiasts, and is designed to survive the rigors of diving or mountain climbing. It’s water resistant to 100 meters of depth and certified IP6X dust resistant.

Save on a Apple Watch Ultra 2 refurb

The regular price for Apple Watch Ultra 2 is $799, but Apple is now offering refurb units at $120 below that in its Certified Refurbished store.

Buy it from: Apple

There are currently three variants available: one with the Blue Ocean band, another with the Orange Ocean band and the third with the White Ocean band.

Note that these refurbs are sold without the blood oxygen sensor that was included with the device when it launched in autumn 2023 due to an on-going lawsuit.

Not a lemon

When someone buys a product from Apple then returns it, it is resold after going through a refurbishment process, as is happening with Apple Watch Ultra 2 now. Apple prepares these so you’re not taking any risk. It’s cleaned and undergoes full functional testing, then gets repackaged with appropriate manuals and cables.

Each unit comes with the company’s standard one-year limited warranty, and customers can add AppleCare+.
