Best Apple Watch Deals: Save $70 on Latest Series 8, $100 on Series 7 and More

Check out the best prices for the latest Series 8, affordable Watch SE and high-end Ultra. You can also pick up the previous Series 7 for a song.

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.

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.
