The latest Apple Watch is on sale with a $79 discount at Amazon, or a $70 discount at Best Buy and Walmart. Amazon’s $320 pricing is limited to the Product Red model, while the watch is priced at $329 in navy blue. Best Buy and Walmart offer the watch for $329 in five color choices: space gray, navy, red, pink and white. In addition to an always-on display and ECG, the Series 6 monitors blood-oxygen levels (though you shouldn’t expect medical-grade results there). Read our Apple Watch Series 6 review.

You can also save $79 on the larger 44mm Series 6 model at Amazon. The discount is available only in the Product Red Model. At Best Buy and Walmart, you can save $70 on Apple’s pricing, with Best Buy offering the discount in the same five color options as the 40mm mode and Walmart in red and white.

The Watch SE is the step-down model in Apple’s 2020 smartwatch line. It’s similar to the 2019 Series 5, but without the always-on screen and ECG function. The Watch SE also boasts a more powerful processor and a Retina display that’s 30% larger than the much older Series 3. This model had been seeing discounts as deep as $49, but those have subsided. Currently, Walmart is offering a modest $10 discount in white and black, and a $9 discount in pink. You’ll find a $10 discount at Amazon in white and black, while Best Buy currently has no price breaks for the Watch SE.
