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 $50 off, which is the first major price cut we've seen for this watch.

Amazon is now price matching Walmart's Apple Watch deal. You can get Apple Watch 8 for $349 at Amazon as well. The 45mm model is also on sale for $379 (opens in new tab) ($50 off), but in Product Red only.

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, Black Friday deals will be here soon, but it's not likely that we'll see significantly bigger discounts next month. 

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 now that it's on sale.
