There’s never been a better time to buy the Apple Watch SE (2nd Gen), as it has fallen to another new low on Amazon. Both sizes (40mm and 44mm) are available with discounts of $70, with the 40mm GPS Watch SE starting at just $179, or 28 percent ($70) off and the 44mm model starting at $209 (25 percent off). That’s an all-time low, besting the $189 price we saw just two days ago.
With solid performance, a familiar design and support for numerous apps, the 2022 Watch SE scored a solid 89 in our Engadget review. It looks nearly identical to the latest Watch models, and delivers smooth performance despite the slightly older processor. Most importantly, it offer all the same features you’d get in the more expensive models, like all-day heart rate monitoring, built-in GPS, fall detection, Apple Pay support, sleep-tracking and more. Battery life has also been improved over the previous model.
It doesn’t include a blood oxygen sensor or ECG, nor the always-on display of the Series 8 or Series 9 models. If those things aren’t terribly important, you’ll still get a full Watch experience. The other main drawbacks with all Watch models are sleep tracking that doesn’t quite measure up to the competition, and less than a full day of battery life.
If you want the higher-end models, there’s more good news too. All the Watch Series 8 models are on sale, starting at $299 for the Watch Series 8 (GPS 41mm), $329 for the Watch Series 9 (in red only, $100 off) and $359 for the Watch Series 9 in other colors.
