Though Apple watches are the best in the market, they’re highly expensive, let only the premium class buy them, keeping the middle class at bay. And with the launch of the Watch Series 8 and Ultra variant this week, Apple may dig the pockets of even rich buyers in case of repairs.
As noted by MacRumors from the Apple Support Website, the repair costs of Apple Watch Series 8 and Ultra are so high that some estimates are equivalent to the launch price of other watches. For example, repairs for the physical damage of the GPS version of the Apple Watch Series 8 (both 41mm and 45mm models) costs $299.
Whereas the cellular variant of the Watch Series 8 costs $349, with the price going up to $399 for the stainless steel and Hermès models. The Apple Watch Ultra, on the other hand, can cost $499 for repair – equivalent to the launch price of the Watch Series 8 standard variant.
Well, these are still estimates, with the actual repair costs depending on how deep the product is damaged and determined by the Apple technician after inspection.
