Apple Watch Series 9 (GPS, 41mm): $349 (13% off)

Amazon has slashed 13% off its latest smartwatch model, the Apple Watch Series 9. You can strap it around your wrist (or present it as a gift) and pay just $349. This configuration is for the 41mm aluminum version with a midnight casing and matching Sport Loop band. It's the GPS only version, but it runs the latest version of WatchOS and comes with all of the same pre-installed apps as the other current model Apple Watches.


Apple Watch Series 9 (GPS + Cellular, 45mm): $714 (5% off)

Check out this higher-end version of the Apple Watch Series 9 with a stainless steel casing and a storm blue Sport Band. This is the GPS + Cellular version of the watch in the 45mm casing size. Right now, Amazon has it on sale for $714, which is a saving of $35. 

The biggest benefit of the GPS + Cellular version of the Apple Watch is that it can be used almost fully autonomously from an iPhone, so the person wearing it can utilize all of the safety and health-related functions, plus make and receive calls, send and receive text messages, and stream audio (music or podcasts) directly from the watch -- and that's just a sampling of what it can do.


Apple Watch SE (2nd Generation, GPS + Cellular, 44mm): $270 (18% off)

Currently, the Apple Watch SE (2nd Generation) is the company's least expensive smartwatch. Yet, it runs the same version of WatchOS and has the same collection of pre-installed apps as other current model Apple Watches. 

In addition, this GPS + Cellular version can work almost entirely on its own (without an iPhone being nearby), so the person wearing it always has full access to its safety and health features, communications functions and more.

This is the ideal "starter" Apple Watch for an older person who could benefit from the Fall Detection feature, or a child whose parents want to be able to stay in touch and track their child without giving them their own smartphone.

Head over to Amazon right now and save 18% off this Apple Watch SE (2nd Generation). It's available in a variety of colors and in a 44mm or 40mm size, but not all variations are currently on sale.


Google Pixel Watch: $270 (30% off)

The same watch styles, but in the Wi-Fi only version, can also be found on Amazon for as much as 20% off, starting at just $257. The Google Pixel Watch offers an elegant, thin and unisex design with a 41mm casing.
