Breaking an expensive piece of tech is nothing anyone wants to think about… until they have to. And some gadgets are more susceptible to accidentally suffering damage than others.
Wearables, in particular, are one of the most vulnerable tech items so investing in some form of insurance is generally prudent.
The Apple Watch Ultra costs a whopping $799, making it Apple’s most expensive wearable to date. Repair costs will also set an unpleasant record of their own, however.
Luckily, there is some silver lining. AppleCare+ for the Apple Watch Ultra is available for just $99, or $4.99 per month. With the service, the repair fee goes down significantly to just $79.
The Apple Watch Ultra has a very specific target audience in mind – athletes and very active individuals who tend to spend their time outdoors. Given the nature (pun intended) of the lifestyles of the users that would likely be interested in buying an Apple Watch Ultra, the odds of accidental damage are even higher.
