Interestingly, the old generation Series 3, which remains a budget-friendly option starting at Rs 20,900, is still being offered by Apple.
The Apple Watch Series 6 is the most expensive model of the three, when it comes to price. The Apple Watch Series 6 for the GPS model begins at Rs 40,900 while the GPS + Cellular model begins at Rs 49,900.
