Even though the year marches on and Black Friday is now in our rear view mirror, there are still a handful of notable Black Friday Apple Watch deals that persist for the time being; meaning you still have a chance to grab a worthwhile reduction on the company's signature smartwatches.

If you're on a budget, one of the standout Black Friday deals in the US was the Apple Watch SE (2020) for just $149 at Walmart (opens in new tab), which remains a rare opportunity to get an Apple Watch for under $200. For those in the UK, the Apple Watch Series 7 has also just dropped to a record-low price of £299 at Amazon (opens in new tab) for its Product Red version.

Naturally, there are also alternative deals on offer for those who are looking to connect their Apple Watch to their cell phone plan. For example, AT&T will give you a free Apple Watch SE (2022) with the purchase of any other Apple Watch, albeit with some conditions. You need to connect both watches to your phone plan and pay them off over a 36-month installment plan. If you leave early, you owe them the rest of the cost, but it's still worth the deal if you stay connected a while.

Below you'll find our pick of all the best Black Friday deals still standing on Apple's smartwatches, as well as some helpful info on where and how to find the best Apple Watch bargain this week.
