There is still time to grab a Cyber Monday Apple Watch deal, whether you're looking for the newest Apple Watch Series 8 or if you want a bargain on the original Apple Watch SE. You can find great Apple Watch Cyber Monday deals going on now.

Highlights include the older 1st Gen SE for just $149 at Walmart, as well as low prices on the current Apple Watch SE at Target for $229 - both absolutely outstanding deals. For those who want a higher-end (and incredibly rugged) device, check out the new Apple Watch Ultra, which getting a rare early price cut at Best Buy right now.

Most of these Cyber Monday deals are holdouts from Black Friday last week so that means they will end soon. If you want to score a $50 Apple Gift Card from Apple when you buy a new Apple Watch SE, you only have a few hours left. 

We don't expect to see better deals on Apple wearables this year. It's also likely they'll be expiring shortly, so consider picking one up sooner rather than later. We've already seen the Apple Watch 8 sell out when it hit the lowest price yet, so deals on the other models could disappear quickly as well.

The original SE isn't as good as the Series 8, Ultra, or the updated SE from a hardware point of view, but there's still a lot to love here for $150. With a recycled aluminum case, it's swim-proof, great for hiking with real-time compass and elevation readings, and allows you to take calls and answer messages from your wrist.

Amazon posted the first-ever price cut on the latest Apple Watch SE last week over Black Friday and it's still up for grabs today for Cyber Monday. At $20 off, the saving isn't massive here but it's easily the lowest price yet on this excellent budget wearable. While it lacks the bells and whistles of the Apple Watch 8 (like an always-on display or ECG), a snappy processor, great battery life, and an array of useful fitness features makes the latest SE easily the best value Apple Watch on the market right now.

Apple Watch Series 7 (cellular): was $499 now $339 at Best Buy (opens in new tab)
If you don't need the Series 8's body temperature sensor or crash detection, this predecessor is much the same Apple Watch for a lot less money in this great deal. You get exercise tracking, an ECG, Apple Pay, access to Apple Fitness Plus (with a separate subscription), plus all the usual fitness-tracking modes.

3 tips for buying an Apple Watch on Cyber Monday

1. Find the best Apple Watch for you first

With so many to choose from, it'd be a good idea to do some research into the various types of Apple Watch before the sales begin so you know which is the most suited to you. There's a bunch of models and options to choose from, so try to narrow down what it is you want from your Apple Watch, such as cellular connectivity or advanced fitness tracking, or even the size of the watch itself. To help you decide, you can take a look at our guide to the best Apple Watch.

2. Set your budget ahead of time

Once you've decided which Apple Watch you'd really like, it's important to set yourself a maximum budget in case the discounts aren't as generous as you expected them to be. 

3. Shop around before pulling the trigger

Cyber Monday always has great Apple Watch deals but it's certainly worth weighing up your options before you go and lay a huge chunk of change down for one. As such, once you've seen a deal that you like, check a few other retailers' websites before going ahead with your purchase. It's also important to buy from a reputable website in order to guarantee that what you're buying is genuine, as well as to ensure hassle-free aftercare in case anything goes wrong.
