Apple Watch SE (2022) Deals: 2nd Gen Sees Its First Discount at Amazon

The first Apple Watch SE deals on the 2022 model are already cropping up.

This story is part of Focal Point iPhone 2022, CNET's collection of news, tips and advice around Apple's most popular product.

If you're hoping to pick up a new Apple Watch alongside your iPhone 14 but don't want to spend top dollar on the Apple Watch Series 8 or Apple Watch Ultra, the new Apple Watch SE (2022) may be just right for you. The device, announced at Apple's September event, is available to pick up now from $249.

As with the previous-gen Apple Watch SE, the new version strips out many of the bells and whistles of the higher-end models and offers just the essentials. The new Apple Watch SE still includes support for WatchOS 9, supporting the new workout and sleep-tracking features that come with the latest operating system update.

The second-gen Apple Watch SE is cheaper than its predecessor, starting at $249 for GPS only with cellular-enabled models retailing for $299. We're keeping tabs on prices across all of the major retailers so we can be the first to bring you any Apple Watch SE (2022) deals below.
