IT'S NOT every day that prices drop on the latest releases from Apple, so when we opened Amazon today to find that the Apple Watch Series 8 at its lowest price ever, we did a double take. The stellar smart watch is down to $329 during the Amazon sale, making it a more affordable pick if you're in the market for a high-tech wearable. In fact, this exact model was named the best Apple Watch in our testing for the best fitness smartwatch of 2023.
Apple Watches do a lot. Between tracking your activity, sleep and blood oxygen levels, to serving as a daily watch, it packs Apple's latest tech and health sensors right on your wrist. The Series 8 offers a serious upgrade, with added features like a skin temperature sensor, a crash detection monitor and a low power mode for extended battery life. The Series 8 also has the ability to measure heart rate zones while you workout, so you can see how intense your workouts are and adjust your training plan accordingly. The smartwatch is IP6X dust-proof, water resistant up to 50 meters, offers up to 18 hours of battery life and pairs seamlessly with your other Apple products. Plus, once you pair it with a Apple watch band that suits your every need, you're ready to take on any adventure, workout or busy day.
Both the 41mm screen model and the larger 45mm screen model are on sale, but the 45mm screen is already sold out in most colors. The 41mm option is sold out in gold, but available in white, midnight and PRODUCT(RED). In other words, you'll want to shop fast so you don't miss out on the rare Apple Watch Amazon sale. The deals unfortunately don't extend to the Apple Watch Ultra, but hopefully we'll see that price drop soon.
