You can order the Apple Watch 6 and Apple Watch SE in India now
Apple announced the new Apple Watch 6 and the Apple Watch SE at the ‘Time Flies' event on September 15 and at that point in time, we were not aware when the new smartwatches were coming to India.
However, with the online Apple Store having gone live in India today - we have a date, of sorts. You can order both the Apple Watch 6 and the Apple Watch SE right now online along with your choice of bands and the AppleCare+ package and the wearables will be shipped to you between October 1 and October 5.
Though Apple asks you to put in your delivery pin code to check for an estimated delivery date, the first week of October seems to be a safe date to consider.
At the time of launch, we just knew about the prices of the two smartwatches in India and Apple had not given us a launch date. The company had just mentioned at that point in time that these were coming soon.
Looks like this coming soon is the first week of October.
In case you do not remember, the Apple Watch 6 is priced starting at ₹40,900. The 40mm Apple Watch 6 is priced at ₹40,900 and the 44mm is for ₹43,900 for the GPS version. If you pick the GPS+Cellular option, the price of the 44mm Apple Watch 6 goes up to ₹52,900 and the 40mm becomes ₹49,900.
The stainless steel Apple Watch 6 is priced at ₹73,900 for the 40mm and ₹77,900 for the 44mm. This version is only available in GPS+Cellular.
The cheaper Apple Watch SE is priced at ₹29,900 for the 40mm and ₹32,900 for the 44mm. The GPS+Cellular model of the 40mm is priced at ₹33,900 while the 44mm goes up to ₹36,900.
Apple is offering EMI options for all the products.
As far as the Apple Watch bands are considered, the Apple Watch SE and the Apple Watch 6 both ship with the basic Sport Band. The stainless steel variants on the Apple Watch 6 ship with the metallic Milanese Loop.
You can buy the newly launched Solo Loop in multiple colours for ₹3,900. The Sport Band, the Sport Loop, the Nike Sport Band and Sport Loop are all priced at ₹3,900.
