Best Apple Watch deals this month

Macworld

The Apple Watch is the best smartwatch on the market for many, offering a high-quality smartwatch experience, but it’s not cheap—starting at $249/£219 (down from £259) for the Apple Watch SE (2022 model). This is more than the now discontinued Apple Watch Series 3 was being sold for prior to September 2022 ($199/£179). However, you don’t have to pay full price for an Apple Watch. Right now resellers are offering some fantastic deals on the Apple Watch.

The deals are likely to get even better as resellers start to clear out stock of older Apple Watch models that Apple has stopped selling since introducing the Apple Watch Series 8 and Apple Watch Ultra 2 at its September iPhone event. If it doesn’t have to be the newest Apple Watch, you could see some good savings. Another way to save money is to find a deal that bundles an Apple Watch with another device.

In this article, we share the best Apple Watch deals you can get right now so you don’t have to pay full price.
