The biggest upgrades in the new Apple Watch Series 7 are the larger display and faster charging. In spite of these improvements, the upcoming smartwatch series’ starting price will be the same as Apple Watch Series 6, $399.
This pricing policy is seen in the new iPhone 13 series as well. For the same price as the predecessor flagship iPhone models, Apple has introduced a faster processor, improved display, upgraded camera system, and larger batteries across the new iPhone 13 line-up. Maybe, the option of getting more for the same price might attract more switchers and upgraders.
