It might not feel like it yet, but—believe it or not—Black Friday is almost here, and with it comes huge markdowns on the latest Apple Watches. Along with cozying up with your latest warm sweater and planning out your New Year’s resolutions, this is also the time of year to plan what you’ll be buying during the biggest sale of the year. Black Friday and Cyber Monday are historically the best time to buy tech gadgets. The good news is, nowadays, you don’t have to camp outside a big box store–you can safely score huge deals from the comfort of your couch. And while we still have some time before we’re full on turkey and too much family time, there are actually a ton of early Black Friday deals on Apple Watches that you can shop right this minute.
Do Apple Watches go on sale?
The short answer–yes! While all deals on Apple products are cause for celebration, Apple Watches are one of the products that routinely gets marked down during sale events. Even right now, you can score up to 20 percent off on some Apple Watches.
Which retailers have sales on Apple Watches?
Generally speaking, Apple.com rarely participates in sale events. But that doesn’t mean you can’t buy verified, genuine Apple Watches from their affiliated retailers. Your best bet is to look at big-box online sites like Amazon, Walmart, Target, and Best Buy. But just in case Apple wants to play this year, it won’t hurt to check on the brand as we get closer to the holidays.
What are the best Apple Watch deals?
Today, you can score up to 22 percent off on the Apple Watch Series 8 from Amazon, along with slightly lower markdowns on other versions of the smartwatch. However, last year Walmart surprised us by selling older Apple Watches for over 50 percent off. While those deals haven’t hit yet, we’ll be sure to let you know when they do.
Which Apple Watch should I buy?
There are so many different Apple Watches available, but the latest–and most innovative–version is the Series 8. Lucky for us, that is the version that is currently experiencing markdowns. While they might sound similar, deciding between various versions of the Apple Watch Series 8 can be difficult. Below, you can see various colorways and materials, along with various face sizes. However, the most important decision to make is between GPS alone and GPS + Cellular. If you’d like to be able to stream music on the go from your watch, rather than just using navigation, getting an Apple Watch with cellular capabilities is a great option. The Apple Watch with GPS, on the other hand, needs to be connected to a Wi-Fi network for many of its functions.
Here, shop the 10 best early Black Friday deals on the Apple Watch Series 8. Keep this tab bookmarked, so you can keep up with even more deals as the holiday weekend approaches.
