If you’re looking to buy a new Apple Watch, you’ll want to make sure you get the best price. However, with the new Series 7 being such a small upgrade over the Series 6, we’d recommend you don’t just look for the best prices on the current generation if you want to find the absolute best deals. You might be able to save a bunch on a Series 6, and you won’t miss out on much.
That said, some of the cheapest deals you’ll find will be on the 2017 Apple Watch Series 3—and that proves a step too far. This is now a much older model and is sort of an evolutionary dead-end for the Apple Watch. The smaller screen with with large bezels, the slower processor… there’s just no telling how much longer it’s even going to get watchOS updates. But, if it’s really cheap, it can be a great stopgap to simply track some workouts or get started with Apple Fitness+ while you wait for a more capable Apple Watch in a year or two.
Below we’ve highlighted our top picks of the Apple Watch deals available. Note that Apple does not discount its own products, so the best deals are typically from other retailers. Our real-time price-comparison charts for each model can help you work out exactly where to find the best value for money today.
