If you're an iPhone owner who has been considering a new smartwatch, the prices of Apple's top-tier Apple Watch Series 8 and Apple Watch Ultra might have put you off. But you don't have to spend $400 and up for a modern smartwatch with the inexpensive Apple Watch SE, and right now you can snag one at an all-time low price of just $219 at Amazon and elsewhere.
The second-gen Apple Watch SE is already designed to be an affordable alternative to Apple's flagship devices, but today's price makes it an ideal entry point to the WatchOS ecosystem. The device has many of the same features as its pricier siblings, like workout tracking, heart-rate monitoring, sleep tracking, and wrist-based notifications and calls. It also works with Apple Pay for convenient contactless payments.
The device might lack some premium features, like the ability to take an ECG or an always-on display, but the Apple Watch SE is still the best value smartwatch from Apple. It would be a solid upgrade for anyone still rocking a Series 3 (or older) smartwatch, with a slightly larger display and much speedier processor.
