With the introduction of the Apple Watch Series 8 and second-gen Apple Watch SE, along with the high-end Apple Watch Ultra last year, you now have a wealth of wearable options from Apple. Stock is thin and discounts scarce on the new Series 8 and Watch SE models right now, but there are some good deals to be had in certain sizes and colors. And a larger discount is available on a specific previous Series 7 model.
The Series 8 starts at $399 in the US -- the same as the previous Series 7 -- while the new Watch SE starts at $249, which is $30 less than the 2020 model. The rugged Watch Ultra checks in at $799. The size and shape of the Series 8 and new Watch SE models remains largely the same as the models they replace, but they boast a couple of new health and safety features under the hood, with a temperature sensor and car-crash detection.

You can save $70 on the latest Series 8 and $29 on Watch SE models. The Ultra is rarely discounted, but you can save up to $30 on it at Amazon right now. It's getting harder to find the previous Series 7 models in stock with used models outnumbering new, but Target currently has Series 7 models in new condition and at a hefty $100 discount.
Best Apple Watch deals
After weeks of low stock and slight discounts, bigger price breaks have returned for the Apple Watch Series 8. You can save $70 on either the 41mm or 45mm model in select colors at Amazon right now.
Apple's affordable Watch SE is now more affordable. When not on sale, the 2nd generation 40mm model starts at $249 and the 44mm model starts at $279 -- each is $30 less than the equivalent 2020 model. With the new S8 processor, the updated Watch SE will run 20% faster than the previous SE, according to Apple. The new SE also gets the temperature sensor and car-crash detection features as the Series 8. Apple's most affordable Watch is even more affordable at Amazon and Target right now where the smaller 40mm model is $29 off and selling for as low as $220. Stock is thin on the larger 4mm at Amazon, but Target has it for $250 -- a $30 discount.
The Apple Watch Ultra is the biggest, priciest Apple Watch to date (aside from the precious-metal Edition models). It features a 49mm titanium case, a sapphire flat front crystal and a brighter display (2,000 nits). There's a new dedicated second button, an improved speaker and a bigger battery. Apple promises the Ultra will run for 36 hours of full-power use, ramping up to 60-plus hours in reduced-function low power mode. Cellular is also the only model it comes in. The Ultra was $50 off earlier this year at Amazon and Best Buy, but the best you do right now is a $30 discount at Amazon.
The Series 7 is getting harder and harder to find in stock. Amazon has more used than new models for sale, but you can save $99 on the 41mm and 45mm model at Target. While the Series 7 lacks the temperature sensor of the new Series 8, it does have a number of useful health features, including blood-oxygen saturation measurements and the ability to take electrocardiogram measurements. It also features an always-on display.
