Apple Watch orders, deliveries and returns FAQs

How much is the initial upfront payment for Apple Watch with Vitality?

Your initial upfront payment for Apple Watch will vary depending on the case size that you’ve chosen.

Upfront payments and monthly contributions differ, depending on your plan type and whether you have previously taken out the Apple Watch offer with Vitality. Please visit Member Zone for more details.

Can I buy more than one Apple Watch with Vitality?

No, you can only buy one Apple Watch at a time with Vitality for you own personal use. You must also buy it under your own Vitality membership number within Member Zone.

Unfortunately, you cannot gift your Apple Watch to someone else on your Vitality account and it cannot be transferred to anyone else on your Vitality account at any time.

What happens if I accidentally close the window during the Apple Watch order process?

If you accidentally close the window during the Apple Watch order process, before you've clicked ‘Proceed to payment’, you’ll have to start again.

Once you’ve clicked ‘Proceed to payment’, you won’t be able to make any changes to your Apple Watch order.

If you click ‘Proceed to payment’ and close the window before registering for or logging into PayBreak Limited, you’ll have 48 hours to register or log in to continue the order. 

After 48 hours, if you’ve not registered or logged in to PayBreak Limited, you’ll have to start again.

To start again, select the 'Choose your Apple Watch' button on the Apple Watch page in Member Zone.

An order will not be placed until you’ve made a payment.

Where can I find my Vitality order reference number?

If you want to speak to Vitality Customer Services about your Apple Watch order, you’ll need your Vitality reference number.

Please note: the Vitality reference number is not your Vitality membership number.

You’ll be able to find the Vitality reference number on your order confirmation and dispatch emails.

Once you’ve started earning Vitality activity points, you’ll also be able to find your Vitality reference number on the right hand sidebar of the Apple Watch page under ‘Partners and rewards’ within Member Zone online.

What is AppleCare+ for Apple Watch and do I get it if I buy Apple Watch with Vitality?

AppleCare+ for Apple Watch is an insurance product that provides up to two years of expert telephone technical support and hardware coverage, including up to two incidents of accidental damage, each subject to a £49 excess fee. In addition, you’ll get 24/7 priority access to Apple experts by chat or phone.

AppleCare+ benefits are separate from a consumer’s right to a free-of-charge repair or replacement, by the seller, of goods that do not conform with the contract of sale.

Vitality do not offer this option, but if you wish to purchase AppleCare+ for Apple Watch, you can buy it directly from Apple.

When will my Apple Watch be delivered?

We'll send you an email with an estimated delivery date when your Apple Watch is ready for dispatch.

Once your Apple Watch has been dispatched, you’ll get a text message giving you the option to change the delivery date, arrange delivery to a safe place or neighbour or to collect your Apple Watch from a local depot.

Please note that you can’t amend the delivery address once your Apple Watch has been dispatched.

Apple are only able to deliver to a UK business or residential address. They are unable to deliver to British Forces Post Office military bases.

For any other queries on delivery, you can contact UK Mail on 0871 221 1341. Calls to this number will be charged at 15p per minute. Simply provide your tracking or consignment number so they’re able to locate your delivery details.

Can I get a refund if I change my mind?

You can cancel your Apple Watch and receive a full refund for your initial upfront payment at any time during your 14 day cooling off period.

The cooling off period starts from the moment you receive your order.

We’d also recommend that you check which size of Apple Watch you’d like to order to avoid having to return it. Please try one or more of these options:

  • Visit an Apple Store to try on different models and designs
  • Take a look at the Apple Watch Sizing guide and their printable cut outs to see what each case size will look like on your wrist
  • Use the “virtual” try-on. You can do this by downloading the Apple Store app and selecting ‘Apple Watch.’ Click on the model you’re interested in and under ‘Case sizes’ there is a link to ‘Compare case sizes.’ Then you can slide between the actual sizes of watch face and place it on your wrist to see how it will look
How do I return my Apple Watch?
