Amazon Prime Day has finished for another year, but don't worry if you missed out – there are still some great Apple Watch deals available if you know where to look. That's why we've rounded up all the best offers still available right here.

Throughout Prime Day, we saw huge discounts on the full line of Apple smartwatches, from the Apple Watch SE to the top-end Apple Watch 6 if you moved fast enough.

If you were looking for an even bigger saving and you don't mind foregoing a few of the latest features, you could snap up the Apple Watch 5 and Apple Watch Series 3 for even less. These may not be the top of the line, but they're still powerful smartwatches that will serve you well for years to come.

Can't see the deal you want right now? You can track new deals on our general Apple Watch deals page, or bookmark our Amazon Black Friday deals page to prepare as we don't expect many new offers in the immediate future.

The best Prime Day Apple Watch deals

Today's best Apple Watch deals in the US

Apple Watch Series 6 Project RED (44mm, GPS): $429

Apple Watch Series 6 Project RED (44mm, GPS): $429 $349.99 at Amazon
Save $120 -
An incredible deal for the Red sport band version, Amazon just dropped the 44mm Apple Watch 6 to a record-low price of $349.99. The smartwatch features a new S6 processor, blood oxygen monitoring, an ECG app, and elevation tracking.

$429.99

Apple Watch 5, GPS, 44mm: $429.99 $407.90 at Amazon
Pick up an Apple Watch 5, 44mm for a discount with this Amazon Prime Day Apple Watch deal. While $21 off the list price isn't a huge savings, Apple products so rarely get discounted that this is still a rare deal. The deal only applies to the larger 44mm GPS version.

Apple Watch SE (40mm, GPS): $279

Apple Watch SE (40mm, GPS): $279 $269 at Amazon
Save $10 - 
The 40mm Apple Watch SE is on sale for just $269 at Amazon. This deal applies to the White sport band, and - while the discount isn't much - you're still getting a feature-rich smartwatch at a great price. It's out of stock temporarily, but you can order it now for the deal price and it'll be delivered as soon as it's available.

Apple Watch Series 3 (38mm, GPS): $229

Apple Watch Series 3 (38mm, GPS): $229 $169 at Walmart
Save $60 -
Walmart has the best-selling Apple Watch 3 in stock and on sale for $169 on Prime Day, excellent considering Amazon has no stock right now. While this isn't the lowest price we've seen, it's still a great price on a super cheap Apple smartwatch that is still fully supported by the latest updates.

When will Amazon Prime Day Apple Watch deals begin?

Amazon has now announced that Prime Day will take place between June 21 and June 22, which means Prime Day Apple Watch deals are just around the corner. Amazon Prime Day was delayed to October last year following the pandemic, however Amazon is back to its regular schedule this summer, if slightly earlier. 

Do you need Amazon Prime to buy Prime Day Apple Watch deals?

Prime Day Apple Watch deals do require a Prime membership, however the good news if you're not already subscribed is that Amazon usually offers a free trial in the run up to its sales event. That means you'll be able to sample the delights of Amazon Prime and make the most of these excellent offers without having to fork out for a subscription. 

That said, you'll find regular Amazon Prime free trials available throughout the year - though remember picking one up now may exclude you from future offers later on. 

Plus, as we saw last year, other online retailers are putting up more of a fight these days. That means other stores will likely be price matching Amazon on its Prime Day Apple Watch deals, so you may well find the same (or better) offers elsewhere as well.

Amazon is currently offering a 30 day free trial of its Prime service. You'll get access to a wide range of membership services while also enjoying fast, free shipping across the site. If you're looking to time your free trial with Prime Day, however, you're a little early - and as you won't be a new customer in the summer if you grab this now, you might be excluded from future free trials.

Prime Day Apple Watch deals - what to expect in 2022

Last year the biggest Prime Day Apple Watch deals were found on the older Series 3 model. However, we were seeing some record low prices dropping it all the way down to $169 in the US and £195 in the UK. 

Aside from a $15 saving on the Series 6 in the US, we didn't see any more Prime Day Apple Watch deals up for grabs last year. That's fairly understandable, considering the latest generation was only a month old at the time, and Apple devices like this rarely see bigger discounts so soon after launch. 

That said, we've already seen the price of the SE drop down to $229 in last year's Black Friday deals, with a £15 discount in the UK as well. Plus, the Series 6 was down to just $329 last November, with the UK seeing a £299 sales price since then as well. That means there's definitely movement on those prices, and 2021's Prime Day Apple Watch deals should yield some far more valuable offers than we saw last year.
