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 Series 6, Series 5, Series 3, and SE are all going on sale throughout the savings season. The lowest price we've seen for the Apple Watch 6 is $249, so keep an eye out for prices in that range. Meanwhile, the Apple Watch SE hit an all-time low of $239 ($40 off), though we hope to see a deeper price cut soon.

Sam's Club gave the first Apple Watch Black Friday deal on the Apple Watch 7. Though, the promotion only took $15 off Apple's newest smartwatch. Now you can find the Apple Watch sale for $20 off at Amazon and Walmart, so be sure to check stock.
