Apple could charge over $500 to fix damage in new Watch Ultra in China

Tech giant Apple, which launched its new Watch Ultra for 6,299 Chinese yuan ($910) in China, is expected to charge 3,459 Chinese yuan ($541) to repair its damage.

According to GizmoChina, the Watch Ultra could be a very expensive smartwatch to repair, and repair costs for Apple’s premium smartwatch could eat up to 60% of its retail price.

Apple, however, offers the AppleCare+ service plan with a reduced repair cost of 588 Chinese yuan ($85). It involves paying 799 Chinese yuan ($115) for two years.

The Apple Watch Ultra has some impressive features and improvements in its design. It remains to be seen, however, how this high repair cost might impact its market acceptance. The included service plan provides some comfort to the users.

Powered by watchOS 9, Apple Watch Ultra features a 49mm titanium case and flat sapphire crystal that reveals the largest and brightest Apple Watch display yet.

Apple Watch Ultra has the best battery life of any Apple Watch, reaching up to 36 hours with normal use.

Additionally, a new low-power setting, ideal for multi-day experiments, can extend battery life by up to 60 hours, the company claimed.
