Prices for customers who have both a phone and a watch on their accounts is the same.
This is welcome news considering Apple debuted 2 brand-new Apple Watch designs today: the Apple Watch Series 6 and Apple Watch SE, both of which have an LTE alternative. The most budget-friendly Series 6 with LTE expenses $499($399 without LTE), however the genuine bargain is the Apple Watch SE with LTE, which costs $329(just $50 more than its price without LTE). Both designs are offered for preorder now and will be available this Friday.

If you’re somebody who wants to pack up on Apple Watches for your household, paying for them each month will be a little bit more inexpensive at Verizon.
