I paid $258 to have my watch repaired for this exact crack. I'm going to be giving someone at apple hell today. Good post.

Yeah, taking responsibility for their products, lol!.. who else does that?
"taking" responsibility is a misrepresentation. More like "forced"...

I've had so many issues with Apple products, and not one has Apple preemptively fixed for me out of the goodness of their heart. They're either forced to because they can't hide the issue, or the few times they do it pre-emptively is because the amount of people that had the problem is so small, it's cheaper to do it up front rather than risk bad press and/or litigation.

It's one thing that hasn't changed since Jobs. We'll always be using it wrong.

Is this a free one time fix or when they do it is something done differently that prevents it from happening?

My co worker's screen looked identical to the second picture on the site. It cracked within 1-2 months of getting it. She had apple Care protection program and they made her pay $75 or something to fix or replace it.

She have grounds to get that money back?

Thanks! Bought my wife's in December 16 and it cracked within a few months. She has just delt with the crack instead of paying to have it fixed. Looks like apple is going to fix it anyways!!

Thanks OP. I bought a replacement for my series 2 that had this problem several months ago, but kept it. Will have it repaired and give to my son now. Thanks!

"Apple has determined that, under very rare circumstances, a crack may form..." LOL, someone definitely forced their hand. They sure hated having to replace my iPhone 4's battery for free long ago. That was my last apple product, other than 4131 Fuji's.

Quote from Techspert
:
Yet another reason I'll never buy this companies products again...they have to be forced to fix problems or admit to forced obsolescence or Spyware only AFTER they get called out on it. They prefer to blame the user for their litany of issues...
Planned obsolete is nothing new in business. It more efficient for tech company to spend $$$ on producing goods versus spending $$$ on repairing/supporting goods for a long time. Thanks to technologies that improve quickly, like Morse's Law where for instance speed double every 2 years, it is wise to invest in something newer to capture or appeal their targeted consumer.

I'm pretty sure this happens from the battery expanding. In many cases, the screen pops off, but in these cases, you can see that the glue holding the screen down was too strong and caused the screen to crack instead. That's why it is along the edges, not the center.
