Apple can also replace the battery in an Apple Watch Ultra for a $99 fee, regardless of whether the customer has AppleCare+ coverage.

By comparison, repair fees for the Apple Watch Series 8 range from $299 to $399 without an AppleCare+ plan, while a replacement battery costs $79. Repair fees for the second-generation Apple Watch SE range from $199 to $229.

AppleCare+ for the Apple Watch Ultra is available for $99 upfront or $4.99 per month and includes unlimited incidents of accidental damage protection, with each incident subject to a $79 service fee. Like any form of insurance, customers who purchase AppleCare+ can save money in the event they damage their Apple Watch Ultra.

Inspired by the "most extreme activities," the Apple Watch Ultra features a rugged design with a 49mm titanium case, a larger display with a flat sapphire crystal cover, new bands designed for the outdoors, water resistance up to a depth of 100 meters, a customizable bright orange "Action" button, and more. Unlike regular Apple Watch models, the Ultra also has a protruded housing for the Digital Crown and Side Button.

Apple Watch Ultra is available to order for $799 and will launch in stores and begin arriving to customers on September 23. All models include a titanium case and cellular connectivity along with the choice of an Alpine Loop, Trail Loop, or Ocean Band.

These are watches for rich people, who won't notice or care how much repairs cost.
You don't need to be rich to buy a $799 watch. Someone who buys this could easily care what repairs cost.

Hard to know how to respond to such a comment.
I guess you and I have different definitions of rich. I'm not rich and I've bought things that cost $799 and more during my life. Not every day obviously.

I have a friend who collects watches.... Average price over $7,000. This watch is dirt cheap for everything it does.

….In my country without Apple Store (thus, no AppleCare+), this is a great news. Why? Because those pretentious outdoorsy people who only go to malls for walk and call it "a workout" will be put off buying it because of this news.
I fail to see why that’s great news. Like, your happiness depends on what other people wear or do with their money? Is it a cultural thing? I’m really at a loss as to how that would be great news.

Rich? No, there are Swiss Made automatics that are for “rich” people. This is less than a PS5 bundle. It’s like $50 more than a SS AW.
