Apple Watch Series 6 is history, as far as Apple is concerned. It had recently launched Apple Watch Series 7 recently.

Apple is doing some spring cleaning albeit it is fall season. Apple Watch Series 6 is being discontinued even as the recently launched Apple Watch Series 7 has gone on sale today. The new Watch Series 7 was launched at the special Apple event that rolled out the iPhone 13, iPhone Mini, iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max.

Now, nearly a month after announcing the Apple Watch Series 7, the company has removed the Watch Series 6 from its official lineup. As per The Verge, those wanting to buy a brand new Apple Watch, will now have just 3 options: Apple Watch Series 7, priced at $399; Apple Watch SE, priced at $279 and Apple Watch Series 3 priced at $199.

However, if money is the consideration and you don't want to spend too much, Apple Watch Series 6 can still be positively looked at, considering the many features they share. But if the budget can be stretched to the newly launched smartwatch, then Apple Watch Series 7 is what you want to go for.

Apple's refurbished store has three different Series 6 models for sale right now, for example, and Amazon is currently offering many refurbished Series 6 watches at a lower price.
