UPDATE: Feb. 7, 2024, 2:00 p.m. EST We’ve updated this post to reflect the most recent pricing and availability on Apple Watches, including price drops on the Apple Watch SE and Ultra 2.
It’s been nearly ten years since the first generation Apple Watch began to grace people’s wrists. In that time, the Apple wearable has evolved in size, power, and — because it’s Apple — price. If you’re into the idea of having a fitness tracker, an extension of your phone, and all the world’s conveniences (or, at least a few more than you’re used to) wrapped around your wrist, but aren’t into shelling out the max amount of cash, you’ve come to the right place. Every week, we’ll keep watch and update this post with the best Apple Watch deals from across the internet.
Apple Watch Series 9 deals
Why we like it
When it comes to the Series 9, sales prices tend to fluctuate between $50 and $70 off. Right now, we’re at the $70 off end of things, so if you’re trying to save some cash and get your hands on a smartwatch upgrade with double tap and a brighter display (the surprise sleeper hit of this watch, according to Mashable Senior Editor Stan Schroeder), this is the time to buy. Just note that Series 9 watches no longer support the blood oxygen sensor.

Apple Watch Series 9 vs. Apple Watch Ultra 2: What are the differences?
Apple Watch SE deals
Why we like it
Even before the Series 9 lost its pulse oximeter (aka the thing that took blood oxygen readings), the second-gen was the best value Apple Watch for anyone who just needed the basics: heart rate monitoring, sleep tracking, and fall and crash detection. It may not have the biggest or brightest screen, but it holds a charge, uses the same S8 processor as the Series 8 and first-gen Ultra, and at $179, costs $150 less than the current sale price of the Series 9.

Apple Watch Ultra deals
Why we like it
The Apple Watch Ultra 2 has an ultra-high price point, but that’s because it truly is built different. Not intended for everyday use, this watch for more intense athletes has an extra-bright 3,000 nit display, an S9 chip, Double Tap functionality, and 72 total hours of battery life (if used in low power mode). Even on sale, this price is nearly double that of the Series 9’s MSRP, so we would really only recommend this watch for outdoor sports enthusiasts and adventurers. As mentioned above, unfortunately, this watch no longer supports a blood oxygen sensor due to an ongoing patent dispute.
