Apple has removed Series 6 from the company’s official Apple Watch lineup as Apple Watch Series 7 is finally available for preorder, nearly a month after Apple announced the new smartwatch. However, there are still other ways to buy the Apple Watch Series 6 and given how many features are shared between the Series 7 and the Series 6, the previous generation model could be a good option to consider if you want to save some money.
According to Apple’s official website, the company has removed the Watch Series 6 page from its online store and is no longer offering the device to its customers. Thus, Apple’s smartwatch lineup now consists of Watch Series 3, Watch SE, and Watch Series 7.
The new Apple Watch Series 7 is said to cost $399, the Watch SE, which was introduced last year is being still sold at $279, and the years-old Series 3 is available for $199.
There is uncertainty as to why Apple still sells the Watch Series 3 which was introduced five years ago but it’s nice to know that the company keeps such an “ancient” device up to date. There have been complaints on the Series 3 for about a year now, so, it is being advised that users who want to get a good experience from using a smartwatch should pay attention at least to Watch SE.
Apple has stopped selling Apple Watch Series 6 on its online store. Thus, Apple’s smartwatch lineup now consists of Watch Series 3, Watch SE, and Watch Series 7.
The Watch Series 7 will go on sale on October 15th and users will be able to choose between two versions of the watch with case heights of 41 and 45 mm, while the previous generation models were available in 40 and 44 mm cases. The larger model has increased its display diagonal from 1.78 inches to 1.9 inches, giving the display more space for displaying information.
Though Apple has stopped selling Apple Watch Series 6 online, there are still a few ways to get the watch at a discount price. These include Apple stores, Amazon.com, etc.
