Up until late yesterday, and probably even early this morning, you could still order an Apple Watch Series 6 if you were so inclined. However, that ship has sailed now that the Apple Watch Series 7 has arrived. At least when it comes to Apple, anyway.
As of today, the Apple Watch Series 7 launch day, the Series 6 model has been removed from Apple’s official lineup. Which is to be expected, especially considering the Series 7 doesn’t make that many changes to warrant keeping the Series 6 in the lineup. You can check out the Series 7 technical specs if you want to see how all the features and specs stack up.
Buying a brand new Apple Watch from Apple now offers up these options: Apple Watch Series 7, Apple Watch SE, and the Apple Watch Series 3. Apple drills this point home when you choose to compare the available smartwatches available from the company directly, in a brand new fashion.
The Apple Watch Series 7 starts at $399, while the Apple Watch Series 3 starts at $199. Meanwhile, the Apple Watch SE starts at $279. Prices will vary depending on the variant you pick up of each model.
If you really do want to pick up a Series 6, which could save you some money, there are options. Apple’s refurbished store still has some options to choose from, for instance. Amazon has some similar options as well. It won’t be the brand new model, but it will save you some cash if you’re in the market for a new (to you) Apple-branded smartwatch.
Did you order a Series 7? Orders started today, October 8, with initial availability slated for Friday, October 15.
