Apple Watch Ultra Deals: Save on Apple's First Rugged Smartwatch With Trade-In and BOGO Deals

Apple's most durable smartwatch is here and so are the Apple Watch Ultra deals.

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

The Apple Watch Ultra is an all-new device in the Apple Watch lineup. Revealed alongside the Apple Watch Series 8, the new Ultra offers a more rugged Apple Watch experience with several features aimed at elite athletes, hikers and scuba divers. After a brief preorder period, the device is now out in the world, and we're keeping our eyes peeled for any Apple Watch Ultra deals at this early stage. 

The Ultra offers the biggest and brightest Apple Watch display yet with a 49mm titanium case and a flat sapphire front crystal. The device is more durable than ever with MIL-STD-810H-grade certification for altitude, temperature and dust, as well as a higher water-resistance rating, up to EN13319, for diving. There's also a new customizable Action button that offers instant access to a range of features to suit your needs.

A headline feature of the Apple Watch Ultra for outdoor types is the increased battery life, now up to 36 hours per charge -- double that of the regular Apple Watch models -- and that can be extended to up to 60 hours with a new low-power setting. 

The Apple Watch Ultra retails at $799 (£849, AU$1,299). We'll be sure to update the below list with any Apple Watch Ultra deals that crop up.
