It's Cyber Monday, and the deals aren't slowing down. We've spotted several great discounts on different models of Apple watches and have rounded up the best deals below. The Apple Watch Series 9 and Ultra 2, which Apple just released in September, are both on sale this holiday weekend. You'll also find discounts on the more affordable second-generation Apple Watch SE, which launched last year. We've also found a variety of accessories marked down, including chargers and watch bands.
If you're trying to decide which Apple Watch to buy, consider your needs and budget. The Apple Watch Series 9 is the right choice for people who want all the health tracking features Apple has to offer, such as nighttime temperature readings and the ability to take an ECG, but who don't need the Ultra 2's extra features geared toward athletes. The Apple Watch SE is the best choice for folks who just want the basics for tracking workouts and getting notifications on their wrist.
The Apple Watch lineup includes some of the best smartwatches on the market, but they can also be among the most expensive. That's why more than a dozen CNET shopping experts this month have been analyzing thousands of offers from trusted retailers. We're reporting our findings in lists like this, especially for products we've tested. And we're keeping this list up to date to make sure you get up-to-the-minute savings on Apple Watches.
Act fast to score Apple's latest smartwatch at this Cyber Monday price. A sizable $70 discount applies to a variety of color and size configurations at Amazon, but the selection is fluctuating so we suggest buying now to make the most of record-low pricing.
The Apple Watch SE is the budget model. It's a great option for those new to the platform or who want to get in on the Apple Watch ecosystem without going over their budget. It's also been discounted down to its lowest price ever, so now is the time to grab it if you've always wanted it.
Unlike most Apple products, pricing on Apple Watch models tends to fluctuate throughout the year and is especially prone to price drops during major shopping events. Lo and behold, we're seeing some significant Cyber Monday deals this year.
Where's the best place to buy an Apple Watch on Cyber Monday?
While Apple isn't offering direct discounts on the Apple Watch, it's offering Cyber Monday Apple deals in the form of up to $200 in Apple gift cards. Specific to the Apple Watch, you can get a $50 Apple gift card. Overall, the best deals we're seeing on Apple Watches right now are in Amazon's Cyber Monday or Best Buy's Cyber Monday sales. Other retailers to keep tabs on include Walmart and Target. Don't shy away from carrier deals if you're in the market for a cellular-enabled Apple Watch model and are willing to open a new line of service for the extra device.
Where can I trade in my Apple Watch?
If you're looking to hand over your existing Apple Watch for some credit against a new model this Cyber Monday, there are plenty of places you can do just that. Apple, of course, has its own trade-in program where you can get money off a new device, though Best Buy's similar program might be more appealing at this time of year since the retailer is also offering direct discounts on new Apple Watch models. There are also third-party services for selling used electronics, which might bag you more money to spend.
