No Gold but Itís About the Apples!
 
4 Attachment(s)
Went for a South Beach hunt today, leaving work early for the 1pm low tide. 30 minutes into the hunt, I got a target and looked down and thought I saw sun-glass legs showing through the sand. When I finally scooped it up I noticed a nice Apple watch in the scoop! (The wife just bought a refurbished one from best Buy this week for $250). Hopefully this one will work and she can return the other. An hour later, I get another sound and I notice this target has a big footprint. After 2 scoops, I come up with an iPhone in a wet dry bag that obviously did not do its job as there is sand and water in it. I know the phone is toast but is still sell-able. I hunted for a total of 4 hours with few targets, but I did manage that silver ring towards the end. When I got home and took the phone out of the case I noticed all the credit cards that were in it. Too bad it wasnít cash. Hopefully, the Apple watch will work and I can give it to the wife, but if not it goes for sale with the phone.

Nice watch, I hope it works. Where do you sell broken phones? Surely your not talking about those machines in malls and Walmartís?

Nice finds cat man. Looks like Apple was good to you. Hope you turn them into cash.

Beachhunter 11-07-2018 04:29 PM

You should be able to find the owner in the menu of the watch and possibly return it.

The watch wont charge on my wife's Apple watch charger so it might be a goner. This is what I found for looking up its' water resistance capabilities:

"Apple Watch Series 3 has a water resistance rating of 50 meters under ISO standard 22810:2010. This means that it may be used for shallow-water activities like swimming in a pool or ocean".

But then I also found "Liquid damage not covered under warranty". :roll:

SO WHAT GIVES APPLE? IS IT WATERPROOF OR NOT? Evidently, it's not!

I contacted Student Relations at Chatham University this morning and gave them my name and phone number for her to contact me. I really think that phone has been lost for over for over a week. It's and iPhone 5 and it's toast. Not much value there in that condition but I will put it up for sale and may get a bit for it. I assume she cancelled all the credit cards and probably has replacements already, in addition to a new student id. My call was to let her know that I found her stuff so that she could feel at ease and if she wanted any of the cards or id mailed back. I suspect she wont.

Two nice finds, and what you did is awesome. My friend Karen found an Apple watch but it works but its locked so can't use it?

Waveoff 11-08-2018 10:51 AM

Congrats on the nice finds! Bummer that the Apple Watch is toast. Chatham University is right near me.:)

Thanks! I'd rather find a working locked anything than something that's toasted. I am sure that if she put it up for sale even locked she would get some nice $. Has she Googled "resetting a locked Apple Watch"?

I think you should sue Apple for false advertising .. just send in your warranty and point out where it says its waterproof down to 50 meters... oh you don't have the warranty card? You aren't the owner? You are out of luck Felix :laughing: Throw it in the trash with those worthless decrepit Felix pennies :yes:

Let's make a bet on that it sells toasted "as is" on Ebay? :p :D

Numil 11-08-2018 04:38 PM

Great recovery Felix! That iWatch may still be worht something. I found one in a waterfall I was detecting in earlier this year and was in pretty much the same condition. Yet was able to sell it as is for $100.

How do like like d'em apples?
