Apple Discontinues Apple Watch Edition

Apple today discontinued the premium Apple Watch Edition line, eight years after its introduction.

apple watch series 7 titanium
The change took place upon the announcement of the Apple Watch Series 8 and Apple Watch Ultra at Apple's "Far out" event. Apple Watch Series 7 Edition models are no longer available and there is no Apple Watch Series 8 Edition. Apple continues to offer the Apple Watch Hermès line as a luxury option.

The Apple Watch Edition line had been available since the launch of the original Apple Watch in 2015. Over the years, Apple Watch Edition models set themselves apart with unique casings made of materials like gold and ceramic.

In recent years, the Apple Watch edition had offered titanium casings with an additional, exclusive watch band. The Apple Watch Ultra is now the only Apple Watch to offer a titanium casing.

I wear the 41mm, as I have small wrists. If they made the Ultra in 45mm, I think I would have been interested, but 49mm would be too big for me.

Most of all, wish the white ceramic white would come back.

Pretty weird move to make the titanium exclusive to the Ultra. I’m a very avid runner and LOVE my Titanium S7. The ultra is WAY too big and overkill for my usage but would still love some premium materials

I was looking to purchase my first Apple Watch and was planning to get the 8 titanium (need it because of metal reaction from other types of watches). When I saw the rumours I bit the bullet and bought the 7 in natural titanium last week, with the plan to return it if an 8 was released. I think I may have purchased the last ever Titanium 41mm, from the UK website on Friday night - 30 minutes after I ordered it became unavailable!
It's arriving on Friday, and seeing that there is no series 8 equivalent, and that the updates are minimal, I'm super happy with my decision and plan to keep it!
