I've been reviewing the best smartwatches for years, and I've always been drawn to the ones that represent great value for money. The second-generation Apple Watch SE is one of these, not just because it's cheaper than mainline Apple Watches. It's on a by-yearly release cadence, meaning you won't have to feel out of the loop when a new Apple Watch SE drops every year – because there won't be a new one launching every year.

Better still, thanks to this cheap Apple Watch deal at Amazon, you'll be able to get hold of an Apple Watch SE 2 for 20% off, saving you $50 in the process. The SE might not have the latest sensors and processor as the Series 9 or the Ultra 2, but it's capable enough to track your health and fitness while looking mighty fine on your wrist.

If you're an iPhone user looking for a sleek fitness tracker/smartwatch, this wearable is your best bet. Both sizes and many different colors are on offer, but only until the end of today, when Amazon's Prime Big Deal Days end! Save $50 right now.

Let's not forget that the Apple Watch SE 2 is actually cheaper than its predecessor, even at full price, and provides more features. We'd recommend it to people who prefer to get their money's worth and seek long-term value. The Apple Watch SE 2 is best suited for passive activity tracking, like Fitbit, but it's one of the best wearables for that purpose.
