The Apple Watch 7 is Apple’s current flagship. However, this smartwatch is mostly an incremental upgrade from its predecessor. It maintains the same 18-hour battery life and it adds no new health features. But the enlarged display is a game-changer and makes it difficult to return to previous-generation models. The Series 7’s big screen adapts wearable computing for more everyday applications, making it practical to be productive from your wrist.
In our Apple Watch Series 7 review, we found the smartwatch to be an extension of your iPhone on your wrist, but it’s clearly capable of becoming more than an accessory. It’s the top smartwatch choice for anyone with an iPhone, and easily the best Apple Watch ever. The QWERTY keyboard makes a difference, and if there was finally a time to fully recommend adding Cellular support to your smartwatch, it’s now.

Priced $120 less than the Apple Watch 6, the Apple Watch SE sits comfortably in between the pricier Apple Watch 6 and cheaper Apple Watch 3. It lacks an always-on display and it doesn’t include the Series 6’s blood oxygen monitoring, but it’s still an amazing smartwatch for the price.
With its classic Apple Watch design, the Apple Watch SE has the same processor and screen as the Apple Watch 5. The Apple Watch SE also sports a screen that’s 30% larger than the one on the Apple Watch 3. In our Apple Watch SE review, we loved how responsive the watch was. Simply put, you’re not going to find a more well-rounded smartwatch for the price than the Apple Watch SE.
In terms of Apple Watch deals — the Apple Watch SE tends to get modest price cuts of $10 to $40 off. They also tend to sell out fast, so grab them when you can.
The Apple Watch Series 6 brings a host of new upgrades to Cupertino’s smartwatch. The current flagship sports a brighter always-on display, new S6 CPU, faster charging, and support for a new blood oxygen (SpO2) app.
The new blood oxygen sensors are among the watch’s standout features. The Apple Watch will now let users know their blood oxygen concentrations with 15-second on-demand readings (as well as periodic background checks). This is a feature only found on the flagship Series 6.
In our Apple Watch Series 6 review, we also found the watch’s new sleep tracking app to be helpful, although not as insightful as Fitbit’s software. In terms of pricing, the 40mm model starts at $399 (GPS) and the 44mm model starts at $499 (GPS). However, the best Apple Watch deals we’ve seen on the Series 6 have dropped its price as low as $249. Keep in mind these deals are getting harder to find as stock of Apple’s previous-gen watch diminishes.
The Apple Watch Series Nike Series 6 is essentially an Apple Watch 6 with a few unique features. For starters, it has exclusive faces that you can only get on the Nike Watch.
The Nike faces feature a non-removable Nike complications that make it easy to access the Nike Plus Run Club app. If you’re an avid runner who’s invested in the Nike app, it’s a nice perk to owning the Apple Nike Watch. The latest collection of Nike watch faces with new modular complications pack more info at a glance. For instance, you can now get info on pace and cadence or Streaks and Featured Runs.
The watch also comes with a Nike band, which is designed for better breathability and to wick away sweat while you’re working out.
The Apple Watch Nike Series 6 starts at $399 (GPS/40mm) and $429 (GPS/44mm). Apple Watch deals on these models tend to be modest; you’ll frequently see from $15 to $40 off either model. B&H Photo (opens in new tab) tends to offer the best Apple Watch Nike deals.
The Apple Watch Series 5 is getting harder to find it in stock. Prior to the new Apple Watch 6, it was easy to spot discounts that took up to $100 off the Apple Watch 5. However, they’re harder to find now that this watch isn’t Apple’s flagship. That said, the Apple Store usually has refurbished Apple Watch 5 models on sale (opens in new tab). If you’re looking for Apple Watch deals on the Series 5 — refurb is the way to go.

Apple has dropped the price of the Apple Watch 3 down to $199. As a result, it’s become the cheapest Apple Watch you can find.
Despite its entry-level status, the Apple Watch Series 3 is still an excellent smartwatch. It offers many of the same features found in the newer models like solid fitness tracking, a water proof design, and Apple Music streaming capabilities. The major trade-offs are that you get a slightly dated design and you don’t get access to the ECG app, which measures the electrical activity of your heart.
In terms of deals, the Apple Watch 3 (38mm/GPS) hit an all-time price low of $129 on Black Friday. It was an amazing Apple Watch deal that we likely won’t see again till the next major holiday. The good news is that on any given day — you can find the Apple Watch 3 on sale for $169 or $189. But act fast because these Apple Watch deals tend to sell out fast. Currently, Walmart has the Apple Watch 3 on sale for $169 (opens in new tab).
