Best Apple Watch deals: Save up to $80 on Series 6

Amazon and Walmart are offering big discounts right now on Apple's flagship wearable, and Amazon has the best prices for the Watch SE.

Apple's hugely popular smartwatch works seamlessly with your iPhone to offer you many potential uses, from notifications to better access to your music, to tools that can help you get fit and maintain a healthier lifestyle.

Right now, you can save $80 on the current Series 6 at Amazon or Walmart -- albeit just the Product Red versions. Other color options for the Series 6 are discounted by $50, which -- historically speaking -- is a very good price. And there are attractive discounts at Amazon for the Apple Watch SE.

We update this story as prices change and deals emerge or expire, so be sure to check back for the best prices.

The latest Apple Watch is on sale with an $80 discount at Walmart and Amazon on the 40mm Product Red model. The other color choices are discounted by $50 at Walmart, which has more colors in stock than Amazon right now. In addition to an always-on display and ECG, the Series 6 monitors blood-oxygen levels (though you shouldn't expect medical-grade results there). Read our Apple Watch Series 6 review.

You can also save $80 on the larger 44mm Series 6 Product Red model at Walmart or Amazon, with a smaller $50 discount offered in other colors. As with the smaller model, Walmart has more color choices in stock.

The Watch SE is the step-down model in Apple's 2020 smartwatch line. It's similar to the 2019 Series 5, but without the always-on screen and ECG function. The Watch SE also boasts a more powerful processor and a Retina display that's 30% larger than the much older Series 3. The best deal we're seeing right now for the 40mm size is $39 off at Amazon in space gray. It's $10 off initially, and you will get an additional $29 discount at checkout.
