With price cuts on the more affordable wearables in Apple’s stable kicking off the festivities this year, you can head below for all of the best Apple Watch Black Friday deals.
Walmart, Best Buy, and Target are expected to set the pace on this year’s best iPad deals. Amazon will be aggressively price-matching nearly every offer throughout Thanksgiving week into the holiday shopping weekend something we’re already seeing as Black Friday gets started.
Apple Watch Series 8 return to all-time lows from $349
Amazon is now offering one of the very first chances to save on Apple Watch Series 8. Now dropping down to $349 shipped for the 41mm GPS style, this is down from the usual $399 price tag in order to match the all-time low set just once before. The larger 45mm GPS model is also now $379, down from its usual $429 price tag.
Apple Watch Series 8 arrives as the brand’s next-generation wearable that steps up to deliver Apple’s most comprehensive fitness tracking experience yet. Well, aside from the new Ultra model, that is. Sporting an always-on display, you’ll find a new S8 chip powering the experience which drives the improved gyroscope and accelerometer to enable crash detection. The onboard temperature sensor pairs with overnight sleep tracking, as well as the onboard heart rate sensor, ECG capabilities, and blood oxygen monitoring.
Apple Watch Ultra all-time lows go live with rare $60 discounts
Black Friday savings are now going live on the just-released Apple Watch Ultra, delivering new all-time lows in the process. Shipping is free across the board. Arriving as some of the very first chances to save on the new flagship wearable that hit the scene back in September, you can now find the best prices yet at $739 across all three styles. You’d normally pay $799, with today’s offer arriving as only the second markdown so far that beats the previous mention by $41. A few of the band offerings are also on sale for the first time as part of the sale, too.
Apple Watch Ultra arrives as the most capable wearable ever from Apple with an even more rugged design that the usual Series 8 offerings, or any of its predecessors for that matter. Everything about that improved feature set is packed into a titanium case that encircles the larger 49mm screen that’s the brightest Always-On Retina display yet. A more distinct side module encompasses the Digital Crown and customizable action button, rounding out the form-factor change with 100-meter water-resistance. Then there’s all the actual features like 36-hour battery like, dual-frequency GPS, and everything else you can read about.
Apple Watch SE 2 delivers an even more affordable fitness companion
If the Apple Watch Series 8 all-time lows that just went live still aren’t affordable enough, Amazon is making Apple’s more budget-focused wearable an even better value. Now dropping the new Apple Watch SE 2 GPS 45mm down to $240, today’s offer marks only the third chance to save since launching in September. This is down from the usual $279 price tag and also matching the all-time low at $39 off. Also on sale now, the 40mm GPS style rests at $229 and a new all-time low.
Apple Watch SE 2 arrives as a more affordable take on the company’s flagship wearables with much of the same design. Running watchOS 9, you’re looking at the ability to track everything from runs to heart rate and sleep, with a new onboard compass also supplementing the fitness journey. There’s also crash detection and more packed into the Retina Display-backed build with added water resistance for handling daily wear in the shower or tagging along on swims.
Score an extra official Apple Watch Sport Band from $18
Amazon is now discounting a selection of Apple Watch Sport Bands in several colorways and sizes. Amongst all of the different styles we’ll breakdown below the fold, our top pick is the 45mm Starlight style at $25. Normally fetching $49, this is a new all-time low and also much like everything else below, is on sale for the very first time.

Just-released Apple Watch Ocean Band and Alpine Loop straps hit $89 with rare discounts
After seeing some of its in-house Sport Bands go on sale for all-time low prices, Amazon is now marking down Apple’s all-new Apple Watch Ocean Bands. Available in two different styles, today’s price cuts drop from the usual $99 going rate for the very first time to $89 shipped. That’s a $10 discount that’s as rare as they come for the latest from Apple. Designed for Apple Watch Ultra, the new Ocean Band is also compatible with both 44 and 45mm styles of Apple Watch and arrives with a unique rubber form-factor that’s a bit more rugged than other options in the official stable. Comprised of high performance elastomer with a molded design that can stretch and bend thanks to a flexible tubular design, there’s also a titanium buckle to round out this premium strap.
Another one of the latest straps from Apple is also on sale, with Amazon marking down the Apple Watch Alpine Loop bands for only the second time. Also arriving at $89 in two different styles, these trade in the rubberized builds above for fabric designs that are down from the usual $99 going rate to mark some of the best prices ever. Sporting a unique rugged design that weaves together two layers of woven fabric, the Alpine Loop is designed for Apple Watch Ultra but also works with the larger of Apple’s standard 44 and 45mm wearables. The stitch-free look uses high-strength yarn to deliver on the unique top loop look with a corrosion-resistant titanium G-hook that slides into place for securing to your wrist.
