When looking for deals on smartwatches, the devices that tend to get great discounts are often a couple of years old, with a replacement model that has either been released or is due out later this year. That’s because retailers are keen to clear out less profitable old stock to make way for the device’s better, more advanced successors.
Not so this year. On the eve of October’s Amazon Prime Day, or Big Deal Days as it’s calling the sales event, we’ve found two of the best Apple Watches – the Apple Watch Series 9 and Apple Watch Ultra 2, both released this year – on sale at Amazon US. It’s a surprise, but a welcome one, as we weren’t expecting discounts on these watches so soon.
Apple Watch Series 9 and Apple Watch Ultra 2 deals:
The Apple Watch Ultra series is the equivalent of what might happen if an Apple Watch and one of the best Garmin watches were placed in a blender: a super-tough, expensive titanium coating, with lots of diving and hiking features. Great for amateur athletes, but for most people, the standard Apple Watch will be more than enough to track your runs, rides, gym sessions, and swims.
If you like a premium-looking and -feeling Apple Watch, but don’t want to pay all the extra money for an Ultra as you’re not a big adventurer, there is a happy medium: the stainless steel version of the mainline Apple Watches.
Amazon is also offering a chunky 21% off the stainless steel Apple Watch GPS Series
