Simply put, the Apple Watch is one of the best smartwatches currently available and practically the default choice for any iPhone users looking for a wearable.

The Apple Watch Series 5 is out now, bringing with it optional titanium and ceramic finishes, and an always-on display. As you'd expect, there's no shortage of deals on older Apple Watch models, as retailers look to clear stock.

And if you're after the newest model, there are already some savings to be made on the Series 5 from Amazon.

Following the Series 5 reveal, Apple also announced the Apple Watch Series 3 would get a price drop. It now starts at $199 for the 38mm GPS model, and $299 for the 38mm GPS and Cellular model.

The truth is, the Series 3 has often been sold for as low as $199 before now, and you can get a GPS + Cellular model for as low as $229 (see our deals below).

Discounts on both the Series 3 and 4 will carry on appearing, as they have done all year, so you don't need to wait for a big sales event like Black Friday or Prime Day to bag a cheap Apple Watch.

The latest Apple Watch debuts an always-on display for the first time (on an Apple Watch) meaning you no longer have to twist your wrist to see the time. There's also a compass built in for the first time.

With the watch so newly on the market, there aren't many huge discounts to be found, although Amazon have some modest savings available.

Best Apple Watch Series 3 deals

With the launch of the Apple Watch Series 5, Apple announced the Series 3 is remaining on sale after an official price drop to $199. That's incredible value for what is still an excellent smartwatch. Right now you can save a further $10 taking it to a record low price.

There's also a massive saving on the Cellular model currently from Walmart. You normally pay a $100 premium over the regular GPS model for the always-on LTE connection, so this is a fantastic price if you want the cellular connection.

At that lower price point, the Series 3 is a really attractive option. We've compared the Series 3 and Series 4, in case you're on the fence, but the older device is no slouch at all. The elegant design and app ecosystem make it a sure thing at these prices.

In our updated review of the Apple Watch Series 3 the smartwatch still impressed us enough to earn 4 stars. For Apple users, especially iPhone owners, this is a really great smartwatch for less than $230.

Best Apple Watch Series 4 deals

The Apple Watch Series 4 is still a relatively new device, after releasing late last year. But with the advent of the Series 5, it's making way. That means there are now some big savings to be had.

Right now, Amazon has some big discounts on the Series 4, taking $50 off its usual prices.

But, surprisingly, you can actually pick up the larger 44mm model for less money. Typically, the larger model has a $30 premium, so it's odd to have this reversed. So if you're after the larger option, it's even better value.

There's also a big discount on the 44mm GPS/Cellular model if you want that always-on connectivity.

If you fancy the slightly more premium gold stainless steel version of the Series 4, Amazon's knocked a full $50 off that model's price for the 44mm sizing.

Series 4 of the Apple Watch was really the first time that Apple substantially changed the design of its smartwatch line. Reducing the size of the watch's bezels, and introducing different sizes, including 40mm and 44mm, it's safe to say that the new look is a sleek and elegant revision.

There were some nice internal updates, too, most prominently in the form of an ECG that can let you know any time your heart rate falls or rises to irregular levels. The haptic feedback also got an upgrade, and the cherry on top was a faster processor to keep it all ticking right.

All of those factors, and a few more besides, led us to name the Series 4 both the 2018 Wearable and Smartwatch of the Year at the Wareable awards.

The Series 4 wowed us in our review, soaring to a score of 4.5 out 5. As is often the case with Apple devices, this was down to battery life and pricing — all the more reason to take advantage of any discounts knocking around.

All of the above prices were correct at time of publication but are always subject to change at a moment's notice. If you spot a bargain that you want, you won't want to wait around too long.
