Why we like itIf you’re considering whether to upgrade from a Series 7, you won’t find that many new features in Apple’s latest smartwatch. However, for folks with older gens on their wrist, the Series 8 gives you more health sensors, crash detection, and the most future-proofed version of a standard-issue Apple Watch.

Apple Watch Series 8 deals

Why we like it

If you’re considering whether to upgrade from a Series 7, you won’t find that many new features in Apple’s latest smartwatch. However, for folks with older gens on their wrist, the Series 8 gives you more health sensors, crash detection, and the most future-proofed version of a standard-issue Apple Watch. It’s a bit of a bummer that the Series 8 is only $20 off after its $50 Black Friday and Cyber Monday price drop, but at least you’re still saving some money. Grab it at Best Buy(opens in a new tab) and Walmart(opens in a new tab).

Apple Watch Series 7 deals

Why we like it

With a large always-on display, plenty of health features, great durability, and quick charging power, the Series 7 is by no means outdated. At $339 for cellular capabilities, you avoid shelling out for the $499 price of the newer gen (which doesn’t offer that many significant upgrades). If you’re looking for an Apple Watch with blood oxygen and ECG apps but don’t want to pay new model prices, grabbing a Series 7 is the way to go.

Apple Watch SE deals

Why we like it

If you don’t picture yourself checking your blood oxygen levels or heart rate regularly, chances are you can opt for the more basic (and more affordable) Apple Watch experience via the second-gen SE. This watch comes equipped with an S8 chip (that makes this SE 20% faster than its first-gen predecessor), crash detection features, and slight design upgrades on the case. Plus, it’s $150 cheaper than the Series 8 at Amazon and Best Buy(opens in a new tab).

Apple Watch Ultra deals

Why we like it

We wouldn’t recommend this watch for everyone, but if you’re looking for a watch for the hardcore outdoor adventurer in your life, the Ultra is it. Its hefty price tag reflects an array of top-of-the-line features including the largest watch face Apple’s ever made, built-in cellular, 36 hours of battery life, a titanium case, 100m water resistance, and a host of advanced fitness metrics. The $50 price drop at Amazon and Best Buy(opens in a new tab) puts the Ultra at only $10 away from its Cyber Week price.
