Best Apple Watch Deals: Save Big Bucks on Many Different Models

Many of those who have an Apple Watch cannot stop raving about it — and for good reason. Apple has some of the best smartwatches on the market, especially for those who enjoy the Apple ecosystem. The only downside is that these watches can be pretty expensive, depending on what features you want out of them. Thankfully, quite a few models are on sale right now, including the high-end Apple Watch Ultra 2, the Series 9 and more.

If you don’t mind settling for an older model, there are deals on the second-gen Apple Watch SE and Series 8. Keep in mind that some older models are often hard to find in stock, such as the Apple Watch Ultra. Because of limited stock, prices tend to fluctuate, especially with retailers like Amazon and Walmart. We’ll continue to update this list with the best deals as we find them.

It’s also worth noting that Apple is in the middle of an ongoing patent dispute, which means the Apple Watch Series 9 and Apple Watch Ultra 2 models no longer include the blood oxygen monitoring feature.

Released back in 2022, the second-gen Apple Watch SE is the most recent Apple Watch that hasn’t been affected by the lawsuit, which means it’s still available from Apple and most retailers. It offers a slew of upgrades over the first generation, including the same processor as the Watch Series 8, crash detection and a few others. It’s already one of our favorite budget-friendly smartwatches and right now you can pick it up from Walmart for $60 off.


Now that the Apple Watch Series 9 is here finding an Apple Watch Series 8 in stock is increasingly difficult. The best deal we’ve found is on a high-end stainless steel 41mm model with cellular and a Milanese loop, saving you $300 off the price this model would have cost before the Apple Watch Series 9’s debut. If this is the model you want, it could be a great way to get it without paying Series 9 prices. Keep in mind, it is only available in the colors graphite and silver.

Apple is no longer allowed to ship Apple Watches with the blood oxygen sensor enabled, so if you’re looking to buy the Series 9, be sure to get a deal, particularly if that feature is one you’re looking forward to using. Right now you can save $100 on this model.
