Smartwatches are a great extra utility in addition to a phone, especially since they let you answer calls and respond to messages without having to take your phone out. Apple makes some of the best smartwatches, and if you're already in that ecosystem, then going for an Apple smartwatch is a no-brainer. Apple smartwatches can be expensive, even the company's budget offerings, which is why we've tried to find you the best deals we can.

We've rounded up the best places to get your hands on one right now below. Plenty of bargains can be found on older models, like the second-gen Apple Watch SE, first-gen Ultra and Series 8. Unfortunately, some of the older models are starting to become more and more difficult to find in stock, which means prices fluctuate. We will continue to update this list with the best deals as we find them, but keep in mind that stock levels are volatile. It's also worth noting that Apple is in the middle of an ongoing patent dispute, which means that the Apple Watch Series 9 and Apple Watch Ultra 2 models no longer include the blood oxygen monitoring feature.

Best Apple Watch deals

The Apple Watch Nike SE (1st-gen) is displayed against a mint background.
Apple/CNET

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 for $60 off.

While sales have been resumed for the Apple Watch Series 9 (minus its blood oxygen functions), you may still want to opt for the previous generation Series 8 instead. Supplies for this older model are pretty limited, but you can still find some colors at great prices.

Read our Apple Watch Series 8 review.

Due to an ongoing lawsuit over its blood-oxygen sensing system, Apple has officially removed the blood-oxygen feature found in older models. If you're looking to purchase one, be sure to get a deal, particularly if that feature was one you were looking forward to using.

Apple

Apple may have paused sales for the Apple Watch Ultra 2, but the first-gen Ultra is still widely available and has a ton to offer. It features a 49mm titanium case, a sapphire flat front crystal display and an impressive 36-hour battery life. Stocks are starting to run dry now the Apple Watch Ultra 2 is around, however.

Read our Apple Watch Ultra review.

Apple Watch Ultra 2
James Martin/CNET

Like the Series 9, Apple is no longer selling Apple Watches with the blood-oxygen feature enabled. Select retailers still have this advanced smartwatch in stock, and while deals are pretty slim, you can save a few extra dollars when you pick it up from Amazon.
