NextWorth Solutions Announces Wearables Trade-in Category

NextWorth Solutions, a leader in online and in-store electronics trade-in programs including NextWorth.com, today announces a new trade-in category: wearables. NextWorth now accepts used smartwatches including Samsung Gear 2, Samsung Galaxy Gear, Sony SmartWatch, Pebble and Motorola Moto 360, and will pay cash or gift cards for their value.

Customers looking to fund a preorder for the new Apple Watch, or simply earn cash for an unwanted smartwatch, can get paid up to $126 on NextWorth.com, dependent on model and condition.

"With preorders now open for the Apple Watch, we expect smartwatch early adopters to begin trading in current models like Pebble, Moto 360, Samsung Gear and Sony SmartWatch," said Jeff Trachsel, NextWorth's CMO. "We continuously monitor the market for the best pricing and categories for our customers, keeping our program up to date with market trends and offering the best value, and smartwatches are the next geeration."

NextWorth won't initially take Apple Watch trade-ins in the smartwatch category, as consumers do not yet have the product in hand, but plans to expand the category in the future.

"We have every reason to believe the Apple Watch will follow the same depreciation curve as other Apple products, as they tend to behave very consistently. That said, we do not anticipate there will be significant trade-in volume out of the gate. Apple has a very loyal fan base who will likely not be willing to sell their Watches until the second generation launches," said Trachsel.

NextWorth also recently added the action camera category including GoPro Hero, Hero3 and 3+, Hero4, and HD Hero2 (Outdoor, Motorsports, Naked, Helmet and Surf Camera editions).

NextWorth accepts online and in-store trade-ins across a range of consumer electronics categories including smartphones, tablets, e-readers, video games and laptops, and always offers free shipping and multiple payment methods. To start the trade-in process, visit www.NextWorth.com and get an instant quote with no hidden fees.
