Apple Watch Series 7 price in India has been suggested by Flipkart ahead of an official announcement. The latest Apple Watch model was unveiled last month, alongside the iPhone 13 series as well as the new iPad and iPad mini models. Unlike previous launches, Apple didn't reveal the pricing of the Apple Watch Series 7 at the time of its formal announcement. The listing on the Flipkart site suggests that the new Apple Watch model could be Rs. 1,000 higher than last year's Apple Watch Series 6. Separately, some purported real-world images of the Apple Watch Series 7 have surfaced online to showcase its design.
As noticed by tipster Ishan Agarwal, Flipkart has listed the Apple Watch Series 7 ahead of its official availability in India. The new Apple Watch will be available in both Aluminium and Stainless Steel options in the country and have GPS and Cellular variants.
