Best Apple Watch Deals: Save $49 on a Series 7 – CNET




The days are beginning to grow longer as we welcome the approach of spring, and that means it’s the perfect time to start getting back outside. It’s time for us to resume our walking regimens and exercise routines. Whether you’re trying to count steps or get into a guided workout, an Apple Watch can help you get or stay fit. Achieving and maintaining a healthier lifestyle is made easier with an assist from the fitness-tracking Apple Watch. In addition to keeping up with your fitness goals, the Apple Watch is also handy for checking notifications and controlling your music on the go, without needing to pull out your iPhone.

The Apple Watch Series 7 gets a larger screen and, for the first time ever, a QWERTY keyboard. It also has new color options, and it offers faster charging and improved durability for the same price as the discontinued Series 6. Both models (the 41mm and 44mm) are discounted on Amazon by $49, which is close to the biggest price break we’ve seen yet. You can save only $9 right now on the more affordable Watch SE, which has many of the same impressive features as the Series 7. The Apple Watch SE is slightly smaller, though, and lacks an always-on display, blood oxygen saturation measurements and the ability to take electrocardiogram (EKG or ECG) measurements. For both the Apple Watch SE and the Series 7, you may need to seek out particular colors to snag the best discount and the lowest price.

You can still get the Watch Series 3, even at deep discounts, but it’s so old and outdated at this point that it’s difficult to justify recommending.

We’ll continually check back and update this story as prices fluctuate with deals emerging or expiring, so keep checking back with us for the best prices available.


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 $49 off in most colors at Amazon. Its current $350 price is $1 from the lowest price we’ve seen yet for it. To arrive at the $49 discount, there is a partial price break up front and additional savings at checkout.

You can save $35 on the larger, 45mm Series 7, which is only $20 off the biggest discount 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 slight $9 discount at Amazon right now. Amazon has offered as much as a $50 discount on the Watch SE in the past and regularly discounts it by $30, so you might want to wait for a larger price break to return if you’re bargain hunting.

Amazon regularly discounts the larger 44mm Watch SE model by $30 and by as much as $60, but it’s currently offering only a $9 discount for it. That’s a paltry price break but the only discount we see for the Watch SE right now.
