When do Apple Watch Black Friday deals 2022 start?

This year's Apple Watch Black Friday deals have already started, and we'd expect the discounts to continue all month long into Cyber Monday — provided the discounted Apple Watch models remain in stock. It's worth noting that we expect to see more deals once the Apple Store announces its annual Black Friday sale. Last year, Apple offered a $50 gift card when with the purchase of  the Apple Watch 3 or Apple Watch SE.

Black Friday Apple Watch deals: What to expect

Similar to past years, we predict mostly previous-generation models will receive price cuts as part of Apple Watch Black Friday deals. The Apple Watch 7 and the Apple Watch SE 2020 could see the biggest price drops. That said, we expect the newer Apple Watch 8 and Apple Watch SE 2022 to receive at least a $50 discount.
