We've got the best Apple Watch deals right here for Christmas and beyond. From affordable Apple Watch SE 2 all the way to the latest and greatest Apple Watch Ultra 2, if there is a cheap Apple Watch offer somewhere on the internet, we'll have it listed here.

While Apple doesn't often (i.e. never) offer discounts on its wearables on its website, third-party retailers occasionally have decent offers on the best smartwatches from the Cupertino-based tech giant.

The best Apple Watches continuously evolve, although most new iterations of the world's most popular wearable often only offer minor upgrades over their predecessor. That said, these small changes add up over time, so even if you don't swap your Apple Watch for a new version every year, it's worth keeping your eyes peeled for cheap Apple Watch offers.

Apple Watch SE 2

The changes and updates offered by the Apple Watch SE 2 might not feel significant compared to its predecessor, but there are some upgrades, both hardware and software, which make the second iteration of Apple's affordable wearable more appealing. It might not be as capable as mainline Apple Watches – which shouldn't come as a surprise – but if you're an iPhone user looking for a sleek fitness tracker-cum-smartwatch, this wearable is your best bet.

Apple Watch SE

The Apple Watch SE is a truly excellent smartwatch, and where Apple has cut back for the more budget price, you won't notice it significantly in general use. It feels like a full Apple Watch experience, with all the advantages that bring in convenience, fitness tracking, and health and safety features for iPhone users.

Which Apple Watch should you get?

If you're looking for the best Apple Watch, you'll want the Apple Watch Series 9 or Apple Watch Ultra 2. They're the latest and greatest for a number of reasons, from the brighter displays to the new S9 SiP processor and more. Thanks to the new chip, some of the features available on these watches won't be available in older Apple Watch models, so if you prefer to stay on the cutting edge of Apple technology, you'll want one of these smartwatches.

If you're looking for a slightly cheaper model, you could go with the Apple Watch Series 7 or maybe the original Apple Watch SE 2. Both can be upgraded to WatchOS 10, so you get to enjoy the most up-to-date features and enhancements. They are significantly cheaper to buy via third-party retailers these days, too.
