Apple Watch 8 preorders are officially here. The new Apple Watch 8 can be purchased today and it’ll be available in stores on Friday, September 16. Meanwhile, Apple Watch Ultra preorders are also live with the premium watch hitting stores on Friday, September 23.
Announced at this week’s Apple Event, the new Apple Watch 8 is Apple’s flagship smartwatch with a $399 starting price. It now features a crack-resistant front crystal, 18-hour battery life, and new health/safety features. The new watch also includes Crash Detection, temperature-sensing capabilities, and retrospective ovulation estimates. It runs on watchOS 9, which will include a host of new features along with the ability to add new customizable watch faces.
Meanwhile, the Apple Watch Ultra is a rugged version of the Apple Watch 8 catering to outdoor sports enthusiasts. It features a large 49mm titanium case, making it the biggest Apple Watch to date. Its sapphire crystal glass display is also flat — rather than curved — which should help with durability. We’ve yet to take Apple’s new watches for a spin, but we have no doubt they’ll make it onto our best smartwatch list.
The first Apple Watch 8 preorder deals could take a few bucks off or bundle in credits and freebies. So we’re rounding up the latest Apple Watch 8 news along with the latest Apple deals. For more Apple discounts, make sure to check out our Apple Store coupons coverage.

Apple Watch 8 impact — which models will see price cuts?
Expect Apple Watch deals to drop to new record price lows in the coming days. In addition, the Apple Watch 3 could be dropped completely from Apple’s roster, which could make the Apple Watch SE the new budget option in Apple’s lineup.
In the past, the Apple Watch 3 has been as cheap as $109, whereas the Apple Watch SE hit an all-time low of $209 earlier this summer. Meanwhile, the base Apple Watch 7 hit $279 a few times last month. It’s currently selling for $299 at Amazon.
