Detailed Apple Watch Series 7 pricing leaks one day ahead of pre-order start

It’s pretty unusual (to say the least) that Apple has yet to officially confirm the pricing structure of its newest (and hopefully, greatest) smartwatch with less than 24 hours to go until the start of global pre-orders, but, well, here we are.

While many prospective buyers were pleasantly surprised to learn a few days ago that the troubled new wearable device would go up for pre-order tomorrow ahead of a relatively early October 15 commercial debut, the price tags of all other variants apart from an entry-level Series 7 configuration still remained under wraps.
At long last, we now know exactly how much you can expect to spend for a GPS-only Nike Series 7 model in a 45mm size, for instance, or a premium cellular-enabled 41mm version made from stainless steel and paired with a Milanese Loop. That is, if you choose to believe Front Page Tech’s Jon Prosser, who has proven trustworthy about pretty much everything of late… aside from the Apple Watch Series 7 design.

New watch, old prices

Without further ado, here’s what Prosser claims Apple will roll out stateside tomorrow, October 8, for you to pre-order and hopefully receive in time for Thanksgiving… or at least Christmas:
  • 41mm Aluminum (GPS) – $399
  • 45mm Aluminum (GPS) – $429
  • 41mm Aluminum (GPS + Cellular) – $499
  • 45mm Aluminum (GPS + Cellular) – $529
  • 41mm Stainless Steel with Sport band (GPS + Cellular) – $699
  • 45mm Stainless Steel with Sport band (GPS + Cellular) – $749
  • 41mm Stainless Steel with Milanese Loop (GPS + Cellular) – $749
  • 45mm Stainless Steel with Milanese Loop (GPS + Cellular) – $799
  • 41mm Titanium (GPS + Cellular) – $799
  • 45mm Titanium (GPS + Cellular) – $849
  • 41mm Nike (GPS) – $399
  • 45mm Nike (GPS) – $429
  • 41mm Nike (GPS + Cellular) – $499
  • 45mm Nike (GPS + Cellular) – $529
If everything happens to look familiar, that’s probably because we don’t really see any notable changes compared to last year’s Series 6 pricing structure, which obviously makes perfect sense given Apple‘s M.O. and the fact the design hasn’t been completely transformed after all.
Once again, it looks like stainless steel and titanium buyers will not get GPS-only options, which also makes sense given how expensive such models would be even without standalone cellular connectivity and how Apple is unlikely to have many millions of Series 7 units to ship at first.

If anything, we’re impressed so many different versions are (allegedly) coming tomorrow, with at least a few of them looking guaranteed to go out of stock or keep you waiting a long time if you’re not quick (and lucky) to place your order as close to 5 a.m. PDT as possible.

There’s obviously no way to know how bad things will get in the next hours, days, and weeks, so if you’re excited about the larger than ever display, improved durability, faster charging, and new aluminum case colors of the Apple Watch Series 7, you’ll definitely have to wake up early (or not sleep at all) and violate your browser’s refresh button on the company’s official website. Good luck!
