Best Apple Watch deals: Up to $50 off Series 7 and more

You can get Apple's flagship wearable for as little as $349 from Amazon or the lower-cost Watch SE for only $249.

If you've started the new year with new fitness goals, an Apple Watch can help you get fit and maintain a healthier lifestyle. It's also useful for checking notifications without needing to pull out your iPhone and gives you better access to your music

The Apple Watch Series 7 introduces a larger screen with a QWERTY keyboard for the first time, new color options, faster charging and improved durability for the same price as the discontinued Series 6. Both the 41mm and 44mm models are selling at Amazon for the biggest discounts we've seen. You can also save $30 on the midrange Watch SE, which has many of the same features as the Series 7 but is slightly smaller and lacks an always-on display, blood oxygen saturation measurements and the ability to take electrocardiogram (EKG or ECG) measurements. For both the Series 7 and Watch SE, you may need to seek out certain colors to snag the lowest price.

The Watch Series 3 is still available and at deep discounts, but it's so old at this point that it's tough to recommend. 

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

The Series 7 features a larger display with thinner bezels, the promise of better durability and faster charging (but not better battery life than the Series 6). There are also new color choices: blue, green, midnight (black), starlight (a gold-silver blend) and Product Red. The 41mm model is $50 off in most colors at Amazon. Its current $349 price is just $10 more than the lowest price we've seen.

You can also save $14 on the larger, 45mm Series 7. However, we've seen a much higher discount than the current deal, so you may want to snag the smaller screen or wait for another sale to come around.

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 EKG function. The Watch SE starts at $279 and boasts a more powerful processor and a Retina display that's 30% larger than the one on the much older Series 3. You can get it at a $30 discount at Amazon right now in some colors. Amazon has offered as much as a $50 discount on the Watch SE in the past, so you might wait for its return if you are bargain hunting.

Amazon's Apple Watch discounts can save you up to $40 on the larger 44mm Watch SE model in select colors. As with the smaller SE model, the current discount here is $20 shy of the biggest savings we've seen yet for the 44mm model.
