Apple Watch Sales to Resume, for Now

By John Mercury December 29, 2023

But on Wednesday, the federal appeals court granted a fresh request from Apple to pause enforcement of the ruling as the appeals process plays out. It gave the commission until Jan. 10 to respond to Apple’s request for a further delay in enforcing the ban.

No, although the legal battle will ultimately determine whether sales, service and repairs of Apple’s newest watches continue over the long term.

The battle may hinge partly on a proposed redesign of the two watches that Apple has submitted to the United States customs authorities for approval.

The ban that was temporarily paused on Wednesday applied to several other models that use the same pulse-monitoring technology, including the Apple Watch Series 6, 7 and 8, and all models of the Apple Watch Ultra. But those models are not currently sold at Apple stores or on the company’s website. (The ban did not apply to the Apple Watch SE.)

The ruling only affected sales in the United States.
