Can someone please tell me if I should order this? It's really tempting for $249 but then it says 'New Other' Frown

True, but Microcenter doesn't have any available in store. This one has on ebay but 'New Other'.

I'm definitely interested in this too... I'd be even more interested if I could get one that either had applecare already or was applecare eligible

I'm not too sure. I'm on the fence with this one. I like the price, but I'd like the price a lot more if it were truly a NIB item and not one with such an uncertain condition. The deciding factor for me would be whether or not any of these come with applecare or if they're applecare eligible.

tbh, i'd wait for a NIB. $250 will probably be the new "norm" for the 42mm since Apple's price drops and i bet Target/Best buy will have their $100 off type promo's at some point this summer.

2nd thing to consider is you're already at the end of the gen1 cycle. while rumors the the gen2 are saying only minor updates to the watch...might be better to wait if you don't really need get1

While I do agree with you that the next gen watch will be announced in likely only a couple of months, I'm not sure I agree with the rationale of buying NIB vs used. Sure, we would all prefer a new one for $250 rather than a used one for $250, but with a next gen model coming out soon no matter which one you buy now it'll still be "used" when you sell it in favor of buying the new release. In short, the resale value of the watch in 6 months is going to be the same whether you buy it new or used now.

Just received this from the seller when asking about warranties/AppleCare:

"This item is New Other. New Other means the item is factory refurbished. It is also not guaranteed to arrive in the original manufacturer packaged. Might also have cosmetic defects such as scrapes and scratches.

This item does come with a warranty starting from when we purchased the item. This item is fulfilled by various warehouses across the US so, unfortunately, we have no way of verifying which one you will receive therefore unable to verify what is left on the warranty. You should be able to purchase extended warranty coverage from another source such as Apple Care, Square Trade or another authorized provider. Thank you."

Thanks JohnOMK. I received the same response. I mentioned to the seller that they should use below and cancelled the order.

Manufacturer refurbished
An item that has been professionally restored to working order by a manufacturer or manufacturer-approved vendor. This means the product has been inspected, cleaned, and repaired to meet manufacturer specifications and is in excellent condition. This item may or may not be in the original packaging. See the seller's listing for full details.
Seller refurbished
An item that has been restored to working order by the eBay seller or a third party not approved by the manufacturer. This means the item has been inspected, cleaned, and repaired to full working order and is in excellent condition. This item may or may not be in original packaging. See the seller's listing for full details.

don't disagree at all. I just have a lower tolerance for used items unless they are significantly cheaper than what a sale price from a reputable store would be. Also, it probably varies by product right? For electronics, i have very low risk tolerance. For like a shovel, I have a high risk tolerance.

no right or wrong here. just personal tolerances is all.

The seller is being deceptive.

New other (see details)
A new, unused item with absolutely no signs of wear. The item may be missing the original packaging, or in the original packaging but not sealed. The item may be a factory second or a new, unused item with defects. See the seller's listing for full details and description of any imperfections.

Manufacturer refurbished

This means the product has been inspected, cleaned, and repaired to meet manufacturer specifications and is in excellent condition. This item may or may not be in the original packaging. See the seller's listing for full details.

Odds are it's just a bunch of returned merchandise which could have dings, scratches, etc.
