CUPERTINO, CALIFORNI – SEPTEMBER 07: A new Apple Watch is on display at an Apple special event on September 7, 2022 in Cupertino, California.

It’s been a day since the Cupertino-based tech giant debuted its all-new Apple Watch Series 8, alongside the budget-friendly Watch SE and the long-trumped-up rugged Apple Watch Ultra.

The Far Out event also introduced the all-new iPhone 14 series with a new “Dynamic Island” and the second-generation AirPods Pro.

However, we are still learning bits and pieces about these new offerings from the iPhone maker.

It turns out that having the new Apple Watch Ultra repaired costs about $ 499, Apple’s website confirms. That makes it more expensive than buying the new entry-level Apple Watch Series 8, which costs $399.

And what’s more, it seems that the next-generation Apple Watch is much more expensive than its predecessor in various markets around the world. Well, it turns out that the price hike leaves out two giant countries, namely the US and China.

According to a recent report from The Verge, the famed tech giant boasts that the prices for its all-new offerings, such as the iPhone 14, Apple Watch Series 8, and AirPods Pro, still cost the same as their predecessors.

However, it seems that the tech giant only kept the prices of its fresh new products in the US and China, while walking them in the rest of the world.

The Verge notes in its report that prices for the new Apple Watch and iPhone have risen in several countries, such as Japan, the United Kingdom and Australia.

To be more precise, Apple Watch Series 8 in the UK now starts at a price tag of £419. Meanwhile, its older brother, the Series 7, was only sold for a starting price of £369.
