The recently launched Apple Watch Ultra managed to attract attention with its features. The first orders of the smartwatch, which is available for pre-sale, are expected to be delivered soon. One of the markets eagerly awaiting the smartwatch is China.
Apple Watch Ultra scary with repair costs
Apple Watch Ultra was officially released for pre-sale this week at a price of 6 thousand 299 yuan (16 thousand 580 TL). The first deliveries of the watch will be made on September 23. While the price of the much-anticipated smartwatch is creating controversy, another discussion seems to be over the cost of repairing the Watch Ultra.
According to information shared on Apple’s Chinese website, the cost of repairing the watch can reach 60 percent of its original price. The repair price is the highest Apple has ever offered for a smartwatch.
According to the official website, the asking price for damage repair for Apple Watch Ultra is expressed as 3459 yuan (9104 TL). On the other hand, Apple offers a second option for its users. With the AppleCare+ service, Apple users will be able to insure their devices.
Apple charges 588 yuan in China for one year of AppleCare+ service for the Watch Ultra. The service fee required for the two-year AppleCare+ is 799 yuan (2 thousand 103 TL). It seems a lot more logical to buy AppleCare+ for that scary repair price.
In addition to some changes in the design of the Apple Watch Ultra, it stands out with some unique features and durability. Apple describes the Watch Ultra as a watch for high-performance athletes. Described as the most rugged and capable Apple Watch yet, it has a solid titanium body, precise dual-frequency GPS and up to 36 hours of battery life.
The new Apple Watch Ultra body, which comes with three special straps specially designed for athletes and adventurers, is specially designed to protect it from shock and damage. Apple also emphasizes that the Watch Ultra is water resistant to a depth of 100 meters.
Apple Watch Ultra has already caught the attention of smartwatch users with its many features. We are curious about the sales of the watch, which is offered for sale at a price of 27 thousand 999 TL in our country. So what do you think of the Apple Watch Ultra?
