The Apple Watch 8 sports a new skin temperature sensor to monitor sleep tracking and cycle tracking. It also comes with new advanced safety features like Crash Detection, which can sense when you've been in a car crash. In our Apple Watch 8 review (opens in new tab), we called it the best smartwatch hands down. It's now $110 off, which is the first major price cut we've seen for this watch.

In our Apple Watch 8 review, we named the Editor's Choice watch the best smartwatch you can buy, especially if you're looking to upgrade from an Apple Watch 4 or Series 5. Sure, more Black Friday deals will coming in the following days, but it's not likely that we'll see significantly bigger discounts on this specific model (with LTE). 

The new watch has a built-in skin temperature sensor and low power mode, which can extend the latest Apple Watch's battery life to 36 hours. It also has a new crash detection feature, which leverages improved motion sensors for instant help when you might need it most. You also get a crack-resistant front crystal, Crash Detection capabilities, and retrospective ovulation estimates. 

Yes, there are newer options out there — we're looking at you Pixel Watch — but if you're an iPhone user, the Apple Watch 8 is simply unbeatable, especially at this epic price.
