Cyber Monday Apple Watch deals are heating up

UPDATE: Nov. 16, 2022, 2:30 p.m. EST This story has been updated to reflect the latest Apple Watch pricing and availability as early Black Friday sales begin.

BEST OVERALL DEAL: The Apple Watch Series 7 (45mm, GPS) offers a very similar experience to the Series 8 at a more affordable price — $309 $379 at Best Buy (save $70)

BEST NEW GEN DEAL: The Apple Watch Series 8 (41mm, GPS) may not reinvent the wheel, but keeps a good thing going and adds temperature sensors and crash detection into the mix — $349 $399 at Amazon and Walmart (save $50)

BEST BASIC DEAL: The Apple Watch SE (44mm, GPS) is down to an all-time low that makes it the same price as its 40mm counterpart — $239.99 $279 at Amazon (save $29.01) 🔥

As a gift or as a little treat for yourself, the Apple Watch is a popular wearable for a reason. Though this demand means it can be tricky to snag one at a discount, there are times when a significant portion of the price gets shaved off.

And with Black Friday fast approaching, those times are coming back.

We’d be remiss not to acknowledge that Apple Watches have already seen some pretty hefty discounts this fall shopping season. The Series 8 was on sale for $50 off during the Prime Early Access Sale at Amazon and Walmart, just one month after it was officially released. The Series 7 has taken some deep price dips over the year, too (though it might get harder to find as the Series 8 takes hold as its replacement).

Sales are just beginning to ramp up for Black Friday, but we’re confident that as Nov. 25 nears closer, we’ll see watch prices drop even lower. Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, and Target have already started releasing some early Black Friday savings, so we’ll be keeping this page updated with all the Apple Watch markdowns worth knowing about.

Note: All newly added deals have been marked with a ✨. Anything with a strikeout was either sold out or no longer available at the sale price as of this writing, and anything marked with a 🔥 has dropped to an all-time low price. Be sure to check back often — we’re updating this page constantly.

Apple Watch Series 8 deals

Why we like it

The Series 8 has returned to its all-time Prime Early Access Sale low, a whole two weeks before Black Friday. That’ll save you $50 on one of Apple’s latest smartwatches that comes loaded with a brand new temperature sensor and crash detection (in addition to the ECG sensor, blood oxygen monitor, and always-on display you know and love).

Apple Watch Series 7 deals

Why we like it

If you’re not dying to have the crash detection or temperature sensors of the Series 8 (we wouldn’t blame you in the latter case), the Series 7 offers nearly identical features, with the same battery life, ECG sensors, and blood oxygen monitoring. Though you’re slightly limited on color options, that means you can also grab a larger 45mm screen for a much lower price.

Apple Watch SE deals

Why we like it

If you’re looking at the SE because you don’t want to shell out for fitness features you’ll never use, we have excellent news for you — the value of this budget-friendly smartwatch just got even friendlier. At $29 off, the 44mm SE is at a new record low price and at the exact same price as the 40mm model. In addition to the larger watch face, the second-gen SE comes with the same processing chip as the Series 8, making it 20% faster than the first-gen model.
