The Apple Watch 9 price remains a major question as we start the countdown to the rumored Apple September event. If Apple sticks to the status quo, the next-generation Apple Watch will hit the big stage alongside the company's other hardware reveals.
But how much will the Apple Watch 9 cost? This is an important bit of information that we won’t know for certain until after we learn about all the ways the Apple Watch Series 9 vs. Apple Watch Series 8 are different. That said, barring any surprises, the Apple Watch 9 starting price will likely be $399, the same as it's been for the best smartwatch for many years.
To this point, we haven't heard any rumors indicating the Apple Watch 9 price will be changed compared to the $399 Apple Watch Series 8. For that price, you get the 41mm size with GPS. The price goes up to $429 for the 45mm size. If you want cellular support to stay connected without your iPhone, the price goes up to $499 and $529 respectively.
There’s a chance Apple will release the Apple Watch Ultra 2 this year as well. As a reminder, the Apple Watch Ultra costs $799, featuring a large 49mm display and durable titanium case. Rumors say a follow-up is in the works, probably for the same price.
Otherwise, the Apple Watch SE (2022) will likely remain available as the most affordable Apple Watch choice. Starting at $249, the Apple Watch SE cuts back on a few flagship features, but is still provides an excellent smartwatch experience.
