Last week he was on the lunchtime show on Class 95 with Yasminne, guess he's an Apple fan too.

Talked to a Apple support staff here in SG roughly a couple of months back about this since I did not buy the AC+ right away and got my watch from the US. I was perplexed about his answers, but they are so detailed:

1. You won't be able to buy an AppleCare+ in SG for a watch that was bought overseas. You have to buy it from the country of purchase.

2. If the warranty is invoked (with or without AppleCare+) and you send it in for servicing here in SG, the service center *will* (not even *may*) ask for a proof of identity that you are from the country of purchase (so I in my case, I will be asked to show a US passport or a US driver's license.)

And to affirm his answers, he directed me to the AppleCare+ AppleWatch warranty information site in which explicitly mentioned that the warranty is similar to the iPhone, which is from the country of purchase.

But... This is Apple. "Apple Moments" are just right around the corner. ;-)
Thanks for the reply!

Had really good "apple moments" with the apple store in brisbane when I was there. They fixed my macbook pro bought in SG, no drama, no charge (AppleCare). From what you have mentioned, I am a little doubtful SG service centres for Apple will honour the apple care from other territories.

Guess I'll just have to fork out for the SG Apple Care

You can only add it to the cart when you buy it together with the watch. Otherwise, you need to call Apple Store to purchase it separately.

Where did you buy your watch? Here in SG?

Well, you may actually check from the model number where it was purchased, where the last 4 characters ends with these suffixes:

Singapore - ZA/A
Hong Kong - ZP/A
US - LL/A
Japan - 2J/A
AU - 2X/A

So I hope yours is from SG, so that you can purchase the AppleCare+ from here. For mine, I actually have to ask a relative to buy it for me in the US since they declined to sell me one here.

I bought AC after the purchase of my watch and it was noted that the warranty is international. Just confuse with the answers.

When I called the Singapore AppleCare+ hotline, the one who answered had an Australian accent.

Two of my colleagues using it without SP nor cases. We checked and so far no scratches. I even see them wipe the screen most of the time with tissue, without even removing dusts first. So should be ok on normal use.
