If you're in the Apple ecosystem and want to expand it a little bit, then grabbing an Apple Watch can be indispensable, especially since you don't have to pull out your phone all the time. That's not to say that Apple Watches aren't great in their own right, and they've shown up several times in our list of best smartwatches. While Apple is traditionally known for their high-end and high-priced gear, the last few years have seen a couple of improvements, such as the Apple Watch SE (2022) which is Apple's affordable smartwatch. Alternatively, if you want something higher-end, you could go with either the Apple Watch Ultra 2 or the Apple Watch Series 9.
But no matter what Apple Watch is best suited for your needs, there's no reason to pay more than you have to. That's why we've rounded up some of the best Apple Watch deals and discounts below. We'll continue to update this page as offers come and go, so be sure to check back often for the best prices available. And if you're looking for even more bargains on Apple devices, you can check out our roundups of the best deals on MacBooks, iPads, iPhones and AirPods.

The new Apple Watch Series 9 is the latest in Apple's flagship lineup of wearables. It hit shelves last month, so unsurprisingly, we aren't seeing any big discounts yet. But if you're looking to upgrade, you can save up to $380 when you trade in an eligible smartwatch at Apple directly.
The Ultra 2 is the most advanced Apple Watch to date. It hit shelves last month, and offers some slight improvements over the 2022 model. Like the Series 9, we're not seeing too many big discounts quite yet, but you can save up to $380 with an eligible trade-in at Apple.
With the new Apple Watch Series 9 now available, we're seeing some solid discounts on the Series 8 at the moment. If you want the 41mm model, you can save up to $79 on select configurations at Amazon, cutting the price to $320. If you want the larger 45mm model, you can also save up to $79 on select variants, dropping the price to $350.
You can pick up the excellent 2022 Apple Watch Se from Best Buy and save yourself $30, plus you get up to $120 in trade-in credit. However, the biggest discounts are for the latest and most advanced Apple Watches, so unless you're looking to downgrade, you'll be looking at discounts of closer to $100 off. You'll also get four free months of Apple Fitness Plus with the purchase, which is one more month than you get at the Apple Store. All that said, we also need to point out that there's a second-generation SE going for the same price and similar offers, so this deal isn't as great
If you want to get the latest model of Apple's budget smartwatches, then the Watch SE second generation is the one to grab. It comes with a slew of new upgrades, including the same processor as the Watch Series 8, crash detection and a few others as well. This deal will snag you a Watch SE 2 with a 40mm aluminum case and midnight sport band.
Apple recently released the Apple Watch Ultra 2, which features some slight improvements over last year's model. However, the previous-gen Ultra still has a ton to offer and features a 49mm titanium case, a sapphire flat front crystal display and an impressive 36-hour battery life. And right now, you can get select configurations for $140 off at Amazon, which drops the price to $659
