UPDATE: Mar. 21, 2023, 12:45 p.m. EDT We’ve updated this post to reflect the most recent pricing and availability on Apple Watches.

It’s been over seven years since the first generation Apple Watch began to grace people’s wrists. In that time, the Apple wearable has evolved in size and power, and naturally, because it’s Apple, price. If you’re into the idea of having a fitness tracker, an extension of your phone, and all the world’s conveniences (or, at least a few more than you’re used to) wrapped around your wrist, but aren’t into shelling out the max amount of cash, you’ve come to the right place. Every week, we’ll keep a watch out (too much?) and update this post with the best Apple Watch deals from across the internet.

Apple Watch Series 8 deals

Why we like it

The Series 8 discounts have been fluctuating these past few weeks, but with it $70 off at Amazon, Walmart(Opens in a new tab), and Target(Opens in a new tab), now is the time to buy. While it’s not an essential upgrade for everyone, for those who like their health trackers and are on the last legs of an older watch, or investing in one for the first time, the Series 8 is a great pick, especially at this price.

Apple Watch Series 7 deals

Why we like it

$300 for a watch that nearly resembles the Series 8 isn’t a bad deal. You’ll get your pick of colorways (which are more extensive than that of the newer gen), the same 18 hours of battery life as the Series 8, and the same CPU (aka you won’t notice a processing speed difference). The only reason we wouldn’t jump on this deal is if you’re not looking for a blood oxygen sensor or ECG monitoring, in which case you can get the experience you’re looking for in the second-gen SE(Opens in a new tab) for about $70 less.

Apple Watch SE deals

Why we like it

Unless you’re into the blood oxygen and ECG sensors, we’re betting you won’t really notice the difference between the second-gen SE and the Series 8 (or the Series 7, tbh). The watch comes equipped with the same S8 chip, the same 18-hour battery life, and the same basic tracking features (steps, irregular heart rate notifications, etc) that got most people on the smartwatch train in the first place. This $29 markdown brings the budget-friendly watch within a dollar of its lowest price ever.

First generation

Apple Watch Ultra deals

Why we like it

We wouldn’t recommend this watch for everyone, but if you’re looking for a watch for the hardcore outdoor adventurer in your life, the Ultra is it. Its hefty price tag reflects an array of top-of-the-line features, including the largest watch face Apple’s ever made, built-in cellular, 36 hours of battery life, a titanium case, 100m water resistance, and a host of advanced fitness metrics. We know that $19 off is far from the best markdown we’ve seen for this watch, but it still beats paying full price.
