Shopping for one of the best smartwatches? The Apple Watch 8 is the one to buy, and now's the time to pick it up.

The Apple Watch 8 (GPS/41mm) is $329 at Amazon right now. It's the lowest price I've ever seen for the flagship Apple Watch, and the discount applies to the Midnight and Product Red colors. I think this is the best Apple Watch deal going right now.

Lowest Price! 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, we called it the best smartwatch hands down.

The Apple Watch 8 is the best smartwatch on the market. It's comfortable, it has a large, bright display with a full QWERTY keyboard and it's kitted out with lots of useful health tracking features.

New to the Apple Watch 8 is a skin temperature for period and sleep tracking. There's a new crash detection feature too, which can alert emergency services and your emergency contacts in case of an accident.

Plus, watchOS 9 has brought a low power mode that can increase the Apple Watch 8's battery to up to 36 hours. Charging the Apple Watch 8 takes around one hour, while an 8-minute quick charge is enough for 8 hours of sleep tracking.

My biggest issue with the Apple Watch 8 is that it's similar to the Apple Watch 7. It's also a shame that it doesn't get Apple Watch Ultra features like the emergency siren. Still, if you're using an older Apple Watch model, or if this is your first time buying a smartwatch, the Apple Watch 8 is ideal for Apple users. It's the perfect accessory and an extension of your iPhone on your wrist.
