Best Apple Watch deals: Save $50 on a Series 7, $30 on a Watch SE – CNET




As the days begin to grow longer as we inch toward spring, it’s a great time to start getting outside more to walk and exercise. From counting your steps to guided workouts, an Apple Watch can help you get fit and maintain a healthier lifestyle. In addition to tracking your fitness goals, an Apple Watch is 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 at or near 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 the lowest price we’ve seen yet for it.

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 want to wait for its return if you’re bargain hunting.

Amazon’s Apple Watch discounts can save you up to $30 on the larger 44mm Watch SE model in select colors. The current discount here is half that of the biggest price break we’ve seen for the 44mm model.
