What to expect from Prime Day Apple Watch deals 2022
When it comes to Apple deals, the discounts you can find are often quite small. As Apple is in such high demand, the Apple brand and website rarely run deals so you’ll need to look at third party retailers like Amazon. Even so, Amazon and other retailers may only offer small discounts (typically around 5-15%) due to Apple’s popularity. That being said, the Apple Watch and AirPods are often found at some of their cheapest ever prices at Amazon and this looks to continue during the 2022 Prime Day sale.
In the 2021 Prime Day sale, the Apple Watch SE (which is noted as the most affordable Apple Watch) had the biggest price drops, taking it down to its lowest ever price. The Apple Watch SE is comfortable, easy to use and has impressive fitness tracking and health features. One drawback to it is it doesn’t have the always-on screen feature which the newer Apple Watch generations have. However if you’re not fussed with that, you should consider buying the Apple Watch SE which is already discounted by 11%. See our Apple Watch SE review (opens in new tab) for more details.
While the Apple Watch Series 7 is the newest iteration following its launch in 2021, this smartwatch has dropped in price multiple times on Amazon this year. Prices on the Apple Watch Series 7 start at £369 but we’ve seen it fall to under £300 a few times this year. Of course, £200+ is still a lot of money but the Apple Watch Series 7 is the best smartwatch you can buy today and it received 5 stars in our Apple Watch Series 7 review (opens in new tab).
One of the best ways to find discounts on the Apple Watch is by choosing an unusual strap colour. For example, the Apple Watch Series 7 hit a low price of £298 which was only available in the Green/Clover colour. Another tip is to shop for a Renewed Apple Watch. In the Apple Watch product title, you might see (Renewed). This means the product is refurbished, fully functional and in good condition. Renewed Apple Watches are still high quality and are often found at cheaper prices and with bigger discounts. They also come with a 1-year Amazon Renewed Guarantee.
