If you've waited this long to buy an Apple Watch, we have good news to share. Black Friday deals are expected to start in a few weeks, and we're predicting 2019 will see a plethora of Apple Watch Black Friday deals. The Apple Watch is after all, 2019's best smartwatch

However, don't expect the Apple Store to offer discounts on its Apple Watch Series 3 or its just-released Apple Watch Series 5. Instead, the best Black Friday Apple Watch deals will come from outside retailers like Amazon, Walmart, and Best Buy. As an example, Amazon currently has the Apple Watch 3 on sale for $189. That's $10 lower than Apple's new price and just $20 shy of it's all-time price low. 

Even the Apple Watch Series 4 — which Apple no longer sells — is likely to see steep discounts from these retailers. So what can you expect from Black Friday Apple Watch deals? Read on to find out.

Good news if you're hoping to buy the new Apple Watch Series 5. The watch has already been on sale for up to $50 off. The GPS only model has been $15 off, whereas the GPS/LTE model has received a steeper $50 discount. So if you see those discounts again in the coming weeks, we recommend jumping on them quickly.

Last year, the then-$279 Apple Watch Series 3 could be found for $199 on Black Friday. Now that the watch is regularly $199, expect the price to drop even further during this year's post-Thanksgiving deals bonanza. To date, the lowest it's sold for has been $169 on Amazon Prime Day

Even though Apple doesn't sell the Series 4 anymore, it's still a practically perfect smartwatch worth scooping up if Amazon or Best Buy is unloading stock on Black Friday. Expect this watch to get discounts of $50 to $80 off.

The $399 Series 5 could see a price cut — perhaps an even steeper one than we saw from Amazon post-launch. But Apple Watch Black Friday deals will likely be focused on older models. Luckily, those are worth buying even at full price.
