The Apple Watch Series 8 has got a big surprise deal for Prime Day, with 30% off across the line.
Apple’s flagship smartwatch rarely gets meaningful deals around Prime Day and Black Friday, but this time it’s the pick of the bunch.

And if you’re looking for a 41mm Series 8, then you can bag one for just $279. [Get deal]
That’s not much more than the Apple Watch SE, and it benefits from the always-on display, improved screen tech, ECG, and a temperature sensor that is leveraged for advanced women’s cycle tracking.
