This year’s Black Friday week is finally here. That makes this the perfect time to take advantage of discounts across the entire range of Apple Watch models, from the budget Apple Watch SE to the very latest Apple Watch Ultra 2.

Are early Black Friday sales a good time to buy?

Many retailers start “Black Friday” sales as early as Halloween, or even earlier. The quality of deals can vary early on, but as November progresses, many of the deals are as good as the deep discounts you’ll see during Thanksgiving weekend. See the best Black Friday deals we’ve found, and keep up with all the latest deals with our full Black Friday live blog coverage.

The Apple Watch lineup includes some of the best smartwatches on the market, but they can also be among the most costly. But don’t panic, because more than a dozen CNET shopping experts this month have been analyzing thousands of offers from trusted retailers. We’re reporting our findings here, with special attention to products that we’ve tested and evaluated in our labs.

Black Friday Apple Watch deals

Act fast to score Apple’s latest smartwatch at its Black Friday price. A sizable $70 discount applies to a variety of color and size configurations at Amazon, so you can take your pick and make the most of record-low pricing.


The 49mm Apple Watch Ultra 2 is the latest model in Apple’s lineup and delivers up to 36 hours of battery life per charge. Right now, you can snag one for $739.


The Apple Watch SE is the budget model. It’s a great option for those new to the platform or who want to get in on the Apple Watch ecosystem without going over their budget.


The 41mm model of last year’s Apple Watch Series 8 can now be yours with a $100 discount, with multiple colors to choose from.


The bigger 45mm Apple Watch Series 8 is now available with $100 off, although only in the silver and red colors; you’ll save less if you pick black, and starlight seems to have sold out.

Will the Apple Watch go on sale for Black Friday? 

Unlike most Apple products, pricing on the Apple Watch has been known to fluctuate throughout the year and is especially prone to price drops during major shopping events. For that reason, we expect some significant Black Friday deals this year. 

Where’s the best place to buy an Apple Watch on Black Friday?

While Apple won’t be offering direct discounts on the Apple Watch, the wearable device is available to purchase at third-party retailers. Shopping Amazon’s Black Friday or Best Buy’s Black Friday sales may give you a better shot at finding a bargain. Both retailers have offered steep Apple Watch savings in the past and will likely be among the best places to buy one ahead of the holidays. Other retailers to keep tabs on include Walmart and Target. Don’t shy away from carrier deals if you’re in the market for a cellular-enabled Apple Watch model and are willing to open a new line of service for the extra device.
