We’ve seen a lot of great Apple Watch deals recently and, even though it’s Christmas Eve, the deals aren’t over yet. Right now at Amazon, the affordable Apple Watch SE has dropped to just $250 in both 40mm and 44mm sizes, the larger model representing the best saving at $59 off.
You won’t get your new watch in time for Christmas, obviously, but you can lock in this low price today and have a shiny new watch for your New Year fitness goals.
The new Apple Watch SE is designed to be an entry-level model that includes a bunch of the same features as the Apple Watch Series 6, save for a few key aspects, at a lower price. Its display is 30% larger than that of the Series 3, though it’s not always-on like the Series 6, and it’s powered by the dual-core S5 chipset from the previous-gen Series 5 meaning it will be future-proofed for many years of software updates.
The Apple Watch SE provides high and low heart rate notifications, irregular heart rhythm notifications, emergency SOS, and fall detection. It also includes a compass and always-on altimeter, as well as water-resistance up to 50m so you can track your swimming workouts or simply rest assured knowing it won’t get damaged while washing your hands.
It’s worth bearing in mind that the SE can’t take an ECG or read your blood oxygen like the flagship Apple Watch Series 6. Check out our guide to the other key Apple Watch SE and Series 6 differences if you need help deciding which is right for your wrist.
