If an early deal on the new Apple Watch Series 7 is a sign of things to come, then the Black Friday deals are going to be very promising for smartwatch users. The latest Apple Watch recently received a small $10 discount on Amazon – the very first time we’ve seen it drop in price since its release date – and we’re sure to see more (not to mention, better) deals as we inch closer to the biggest sale dates of the year.

And, we’re not just talking price cuts on current models. With online retailers still carrying stock of the previous generation Apple Watch, we’re just as likely to see money-saving deals on the Apple Watch Series 6 as we will the budget Series 3 and the mid-range SE watches. That’s a whole lot of options for smartwatch fans.

Let’s take a look at the best Black Friday Apple Watch deals we’ve found in the US so far.

Best Black Friday Apple Watch deals

Apple Watch Series 7
Released in early October 2021, the Apple Watch Series 7 (opens in new tab) is certainly the newcomer in the group. But, as Apple’s latest flagship, it’s hardly a novice. It takes everything we love about the previous generation, Series 6, and improves on them with things like faster-charging capability and a bigger, brighter display. It is the priciest of the bunch, but seeing as it already got a $10-off deal weeks before Black Friday, we expect more savings in the future.

Apple Watch Series 6
Apple may already have discontinued the much-lauded Apple Watch Series 6 (opens in new tab), which touted a fresh set of exciting new features like blood oxygen monitoring and sleep tracking, but that doesn’t mean you can no longer find it. Many online retailers still have remaining stock, and in the shadow of the Series 7, these will be cheaper than ever, especially on Black Friday. In fact, it might just be the best time to get it for you and your loved ones.

Apple Watch Series 3
The Apple Watch Series 3 (opens in new tab) may be an oldie, but it’s still very much a goodie, offering great features for folks who are unwilling to splurge on the latest models. It’s got all the essentials as well as excellent fitness features, which is really all you could ask for from a smartwatch – unless you have a serious medical condition. What’s more; its already low price tag might go even lower this coming Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

Apple Watch SE
The current middle child of the Apple Watch family might also be the most appealing, finding that sweet spot between features and affordability. You’re getting more for less with the Series SE (opens in new tab), going beyond the slimmed-down feature set of the Series 3 while keeping things much more affordable than the Series 7. And, this Black Friday, it might just be the best choice if you want the best value.

Top Retailers

Amazon Apple Watch deals (opens in new tab)
Amazon is, without a doubt, your best bet for scoring a great Apple Watch Black Friday deal. In fact, Amazon has started things off early, offering a $10 price cut on the new Series 7. Of course, that didn’t last long, but that might also be another indication of how it’s going to run these smartwatch deals. With Apple Watches being in demand, Amazon is likely only allocating a certain number of units on hand for every deal. So, a sharp eye and quick fingers are key.

Best Buy Apple Watch deals (opens in new tab)
Of course, Best Buy will offer Black Friday deals on Apple Watches as well. After all, it is among the biggest tech and appliance stores in the country. Expect it to dole out deep discounts as well, especially on the Apple Watch Series 6 of which it has plenty in stock. At least, for now. In the days leading up to Black Friday and Cyber Monday, deals on these and the current Apple Watches will roll out. So, keep checking in.

Walmart Apple Watch deals
(opens in new tab)
Walmart has everything from Series 3 to Series 7, as well as a bunch of Series 6, in stock. And, much like last year, it’s guaranteed to slash the prices on them, even in the days leading up to these sale events. We’ll keep an eye on them for you and keep you apprised of any price drops. We expect the Series 6 to get deep discounts as the retailer attempts to get rid of its existing stock.

Target Apple Watch deals (opens in new tab)
Target has plenty of Apple Watches on hand, including the discontinued Series 6, which means some Black Friday deals on Apple Watches should pop up on its website from now until November 30th. Better yet, Target is offering up to $20 off on select Apple Watches when you make your purchase using the Target RedCard. Hopefully, this offer will continue and be used in conjunction with any Black Friday deals.
