Apple will fix some Apple Watch Series 2 devices if they have a swollen battery or do not turn on, according to a new service policy seen by MacRumors.
The policy states that "it is possible that some Apple Watch Series 2 devices will not turn on or experience an expanded battery," and that it will serve "eligible devices at no charge." Only the 42 mm models are eligible for free repairs, which include the Sport, Edition, Hermès and Nike + variants. MacRumors says that this does not apply to Series 1 or three models, nor to the 38 mm model.
In 2017, Apple extended its service policy twice for the first-generation Apple Watch models: in cases where the back cover was separated from the watch and for inflated batteries.
