In previous years, Apple simply kept around an older Apple Watch model to serve as a low-cost option. This time around, however, Apple has launched an all-new device to serve that purpose in the Apple Watch SE. It eschews certain higher-end features of the Series 6 in favor of keeping the price low, while still packing plenty of advanced tech so you don't feel like you have a several years old device strapped to your wrist.
If you'd prefer the larger, 44m Apple Watch SE, you can get it with as much as $40 off via Amazon in select styles. Other models are discounted by $20 to $30 there.
Best Buy is currently offering six months of Apple's new Fitness+ service (worth $60) for free with your purchase of an Apple Watch with this exclusive offer. You can also check in-store availability if you want to get your hands on your new device as soon as possible.
That being said, Apple is keeping the Apple Watch Series 3 in production as an entry-level device for those just getting started with their first wearable or wanting the absolute cheapest option.
Though the Apple Watch SE sits in between the Series 3 and the new Series 6 in the product lineup, it actually looks a lot more like the top-end device. It comes in the same 40mm and 44mm sizes as well as GPS and GPS + Cellular configurations. Internally, it is also similar in terms of specifications to 2019's Series 5 with its S5 system-in-package, though it lacks some of the improvements that the Series 6 includes like the faster processor, always-on altimeter, new case finishes, ECG, and blood oxygen sensor.
Since the Apple Watch SE is relatively new and already pretty affordable, discounts on it aren't huge. That being said, we're tracking all of the best Apple Watch SE deals so you'll be the first to know of any savings.
