So basically my Apple watch is locked on a foreign country Apple ID - I'we brought it from someone online and that person seems that has scammed me, I have the original package and the invoice for the watch, Is Apple able to remotely unlock the Watch if I give them the Serial Number?

Any Info is highly appreciated as the watch was brought as a gift and has costed me alot of cash.

-Thanks in advance

no

Only the original owner can unlock it and until they do your watch is useless

contact the seller and have them remedy this or refund your money

Hi

You are describing Activation Lock, which prevents unauthorised use of Apple Watch if it is lost or stolen.

To be able to pair the watch to your own iPhone, you need the previous owner to either:
  • Enter their Apple ID and password on your device, or;
  • Turn the feature off via www.icloud.com/ by signing in with their Apple ID> Settings> My Devices> Click on Apple Watch> Click on the "X"> click on Remove.

You will not otherwise be able to use the watch (there is no way around this security feature).

If the seller scammed you that seller is most likely selling stolen devices. Hence the Activation lock is doing just what it is supposed to do.

If you are trying to activate an iPad iPhone or  Watch and it is asking for a previous owners Apple ID and password, you have encountered the Activation Lock. This is a security feature that prevents thieves from setting up and using a stolen or lost iPad or iPhone. You have no alternative. You must contact the previous owner to get permission to use the device. If you cannot contact the previous owner return the device to where you bought it and get a refund. You will never be able to activate the device and no one can help you do it.
