Where to find the Best Apple Watch Black Friday deals this weekend

Live Science logo Live Science 11/25/2022 Alice Ball

Searching for a new smartwatch and have your eye on Apple specifically? We’ve rounded up the best Black Friday Apple Watch deals so you don’t have to dig through the sales. 

Our favorite Apple Watch Series 7 is currently reduced by $120 at Target and the more recent Apple Watch Series 8, a September 2022 release, is discounted to $349 at Walmart

These watches offer top of the line features to measure blood oxygen level, take an ECG anytime, and access mindfulness and sleep tracking apps. They also have GPS and enable you to send messages at any time. While the Series 7 isn't the latest edition of the Apple Watch, it is still one of the best fitness trackers on the market and worth investing in for all its fantastic features. 

There are also two generations of Apple Watch SE available with great discounts, with the most recent 2nd generation offering even more features. The SE has a lower price point and less features than the Series 7 or Series 8, with a slightly smaller screen, but it’s still a top notch fitness tracker.

If the Series 7 and Series 8 are too high-tech for you, but you still want more features, there are also older Series' available as refurbished models across Amazon and Best Buy, tested and made ready for sale by professionals. 

While these older models lack some of the features of the newer models, you will still find they are suitable for most users and don’t carry quite such a high price point as newer generations. You can get these older models brand new, but there tends to be little difference in price between a brand new Series 5 and a brand new Series 8, in which case we'd recommend opting for the newest model.

There are some other great deals on Apple products for Black Friday too, including the iPad (9th Gen) for $269.99 (or the 256GB version for $419.99).

The Apple Watch SE might not have all the features available in the newer models, but this is a great Apple Watch for most people. It balances well between useful features that enhance your day and not overfilling things with too much choice.

For instance, the Watch SE tracks sleep and heart-rate variance, but not stress levels. It'll track a wide range of sports, including dance, running, high-intensity interval training and more, but doesn't have options for tracking what happens when you jump out a plane, as higher end models might do.

If you're hoping for a device that will let you take a call hands-free without needing to reach for your phone, the Watch SE can do that. It'll show your messages with a nice, rounded bubble, and let you send them back using your voice.
