Apple Watch Ultra repairs cost $499 without AppleCare+

If you opt to pick up the brand new, high-end Apple Watch Ultra, it’s probably smart to purchase AppleCare+ protection. Without AppleCare+, an Apple Watch Ultra repair will definitely cost an eye-watering $499, as MacRumors highlights. Not merely is that nearly two-thirds of the price tag on the $799 Ultra, it is the cost of an Apple Watch Series 8 with cellular connectivity.

Apple will charge that $499 fee to repair physical harm to the device. Through the coverage period, AppleCare+ includes “unlimited incidents of accidental damage protection.” However, you’ll still have to pay a $79 service fee for repairs. Meanwhile, Apple will charge $99 to displace the battery, even though you do have AppleCare+.

Based on the model, Apple Watch Series 8 repairs will definitely cost between $299 and $399 without AppleCare+ protection (these devices starts at $399). The service fee is $69 with AppleCare+. Apple Watch SE repairs beyond AppleCare+ coverage will run you between $199 and $229. Battery replacements for the non-Ultra models cost $79.

Meanwhile, we’d some hands-on time with the Ultra this week. As the device certainly seems more rugged than other Apple Watch models, it isn’t immune to damage, so ponying up $99 for AppleCare+ coverage could stop your wallet from feeling a far sharper sting.
