The Apple Watch is the world's most popular smartwatch, and deals are already available on several models ahead of Cyber Monday. Discounts can be found on the brand-new Series 7, and previous generations like the Series 6, SE, and Series 3.
Below, we rounded up all the best earlydeals we've found so far. Keep in mind, however, that we list the base and smallest versions of the Apple Watch. If you're looking for the GPS+Cellular models, or the larger versions, you can still click the links but you'll need to select the specific options you want on each retailer page.
Though deals are available at stores like Best Buy and Amazon, Apple itself doesn't discount its products on its store. That said, it is running a promotion during Cyber Monday. If you purchase either the SE or Series 3, Apple will give you a $50 gift card for use at the Apple Store.

The best early Cyber Monday Apple Watch deals
Apple Watch Series 7
The Series 7 is the best Apple Watch to date. Compared to the Series 6, its screen is a bit larger and the bezels are thinner. It retains the health and fitness sensors as its predecessors, like blood oxygen saturation measurement and an ECG scanner, and it's compatible with all the watch bands that are currently on the market. While it's a modest upgrade from the Series 6, it's appealing for those moving up from a Series 3 or entirely new to the Apple Watch.
Apple Watch Series 6
While the Series 6 is technically discontinued, you can still find it at many retailers — just not Apple itself. Since performance is basically the same as the Series 7, the Series 6 is still a great product, especially at a discount.
Apple Watch SE
The Apple Watch SE is the mid-tier model. It comes with many of the features found in Series 7, such as fall detection and a larger screen than the Series 3, but at a lower price. What's missing are blood oxygen monitoring, an always-on display, or ECG monitoring.
Apple Watch Series 3
Although the Apple Watch Series 3 is still in the lineup, note that it's four-year-old and it's probably entering its final run. However, if you can score one at a low price — no more than $169 for the 38 mm or $199 for the 42 mm — it can be a great watch for those looking to test the smartwatch waters or just want something cheap and basic. It also makes a good gift for a youngster or senior, as the Apple Watch has useful health features.
Apple Watch Cyber Monday deals FAQs
Does Apple offer Cyber Monday watch deals on Cyber Monday?
You won't find Apple slashing prices on Apple Watch models during Cyber Monday, but it does run promotions. Right now, it's offering a $50 gift card when you purchase an Apple Watch SE or Series 3. If you want actual discounts, you will need to look at other retailers, such as Amazon, Best Buy, Target, or Walmart.
Should I buy from Amazon, Best Buy, Costco, Target, or Walmart?
Amazon, Best Buy, Costco (membership required), Target, and Walmart are all offering deals on the Apple Watch, with savings of as much as 20% depending on the model. Regardless of which retailer you buy from, all five are authorized Apple resellers and the products have the same warranty and support from Apple.
Should I buy AppleCare for an Apple Watch?
If you're prone to damaging your tech, AppleCare (extended warranty) may not be a bad idea, especially with a wearable like an Apple Watch. AppleCare+ for Apple Watch offers up to two accidental damage protection every year; each incident costs $69, which is much cheaper than repairing an Apple Watch out of warranty. You also get priority access to Apple support. Depending on the model, it costs $49-$79 for two years of coverage, or $2.49-$3.99 a month until you cancel. If you don't add AppleCare at the time of purchase, you must buy within 60 days and it must not have any damage.
