Black Friday and Cyber Monday have come and gone, but deals on Apple Watches remain. Discounts are slim on the new Apple Watch Series 7 right now but no slimmer than they were last month — you can save $20 compared to typical prices at the Apple Store. And you can get last year’s Apple Watch Series 6 at a $50 discount right now, which is the same discount offered on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. The Apple Watch Series 6 lacks the Series 7’s larger screen and faster charging, but it still comes with an always-on display and advanced health features. Lastly, you can save $39 on the midrange Watch SE.

Apple Watch models new and old are designed to work seamlessly with your iPhone to offer you many potential uses, from notifications of messages and better access to your music, to tools that can help you get fit and maintain a healthier lifestyle

The Watch Series 3 is also on sale right now, but it’s so old at this point that it’s tough to recommend

We’ll update this story as prices change and deals emerge or expire, so be sure to check back for the best prices. Some products may have inventory in some localities but not others.

You can also save $20 on the larger, 45mm Series 7 in green. The Product Red version is $19 off, and the black model is $14 off right now.


The Series 6 was just officially discontinued by Apple to make way for the newer Series 7. But here’s the thing: The Series 6 is still a great smartwatch and it’s still available at a nice discount from official Apple retailers like Walmart and Amazon as they clear out existing inventory. In addition to an always-on display and EKG, the Series 6 monitors blood oxygen levels (though you shouldn’t expect medical-grade results there). It’s out of stock nearly everywhere. Walmart lists a $50 discount for the white and Product Red models, but they aren’t available to order online — you’ll need to check for availability in your area. Read our Apple Watch Series 6 review.

The larger Apple Watch Series 6 is also out of stock nearly everywhere but is $50 off in Product Red at Walmart.

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 $39 discount at Amazon right now in black or white.
