Want to kit your wrist out with some new tech bling? Black Friday sales season is the time to do so. And the deals are getting started early this year, with a bunch of reductions on some of the best smartwatches we've reviewed.
There are some seriously huge deals going on right now, especially if you opt for previous-gen models. The Apple Watch SE 2020 (LTE/44mm) is $109 at Walmart right now, which is $240 off and an incredible price for an Apple smartwatch. It's a couple of years old now, but it can still run the current version of Apple's smartwatch operating system, WatchOS 10. Just hurry, as I doubt this deal will stick around for long.
In addition, the Google Pixel Watch is $199 at Amazon right now. Again, this is a last-gen smartwatch but it's still an excellent companion to your Android smartphone with tons of useful health tracking features and full Fitbit integration. It's $150 off and its lowest price ever right now.
There are plenty more smartwatch deals to be found, so keep scrolling for my top picks. If you're looking for more bargains, check out our Black Friday Apple deals coverage.
