I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but Apple almost never discounts its products. Luckily, you can buy Apple products from other retailers that aren’t so averse to discounts. Right now, Amazon has the Apple Watch Series 7 and Apple Watch SE on sale for up to $70 off. In many cases, these are the lowest prices we have ever seen on these models.
Apple Watch Series 7 deals
Apple Watch Series 7 (GPS + Cellular 41mm)
Apple Watch Series 7 (GPS + Cellular 45mm)
Apple Watch Series 7 is the latest model, released in October last year. It offers all the latest smartwatch technology, like a larger screen, increased durability, faster charging, and an always-on Retina display. It can measure your blood oxygen and allow you to take an ECG at any time. The models above are all $70 off, which is the lowest they’ve ever been on Amazon.
Apple Watch SE deals
As for the Apple Watch SE, you can pick up a 40mm GPS model for $229 or a 44mm model for $259. Apple Watch SE is the mid-range model, sitting between Series 3 (which debuted in 2017) and the newest, Series 7. It lacks the latest Series 7 features, but that’s a step quite a significant forward over the Series 3 for not much more money. This is especially true with these sale prices.
The SE comes in two sizes, 40mm and 44mm, which you’ll notice 1mm smaller than the Series 7 options. Which one you choose should probably depend on your wrist size.
The SE and Series 7 are available in two configurations, GPS or GPS + Cellular. Both models are similar, but the cellular ones allow you to leave your iPhone at home and it will still offer full functionality. If you usually have your phone nearby, you can probably get by with the GPS model.
Along with a huge selection of apps, both watches offer plenty of fitness tracking features and are even safe to wear while swimming. They are also compatible with Apple AirPods and MagSafe chargers.
