Cyber Monday smartwatch deals 2021: early sales and what to expect

Cyber Monday is here! There are a few big smartwatch deals to find, though many have carried over from Black Friday. If you really care about wearables, you should check out our Cyber Monday smartwatch live blog where we'll post the latest deals we find. By contrast, the page you're on right now has our complete list of deals we've found.

With the exception of the Apple Watch 7 – which hasn't seen much of a discount this deals season and may be in short supply – we're expecting good availability and great prices on a range of smartwatches on Cyber Monday.

That's how it was for Black Friday at least, and we didn't see many great deals sell out then, which is good news for people who don't have the time to trawl the internet for a discount among sold-out deals.

So whether you're interested in something from Samsung, Apple, Garmin, Fitbit or any number of other smartwatch makers, there's a good chance there'll be a deal for you.

Below we'll highlight all the top Cyber Monday smartwatch deals as they roll in, and you can also see our predictions, along with the top smartwatches to look out for and the best deals we saw last year, to give you an idea of what to expect.

Cyber Monday smartwatch sales (US)

Apple Watch 7 (41mm, GPS): $399.99

Apple Watch 7 (41mm, GPS): $399.99 $379.99 at Amazon
Save $19.01 -
Right now at Amazon you can get a 5% discount off the Apple Watch 7 with a clover, red or starlight sport band. That's not a huge discount but remember, this is a brand-new smartwatch and it's in high demand, so any reduction at all is nice to see. While we normally would advocate holding out till Black Friday, it's a good idea to get your order in early if you want a speedy delivery - this is, after all, the lowest price we've seen yet on this device.

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

Apple Watch SE (40mm, GPS): $279 $239 at Amazon (save $40)
This is Apple's budget-friendly smartwatch and with a $40 discount it's even more budget-friendly than usual. Don't think the price makes this a lesser wearable though – it has many of the same features as Apple's top smartwatches. This discount is for the compact 40mm version, so it won't look large on your wrist either.

Apple Watch Series 6 (40mm, GPS): $374

Apple Watch Series 6 (40mm, GPS): $374 $319 at Walmart
Save $55 -
Last year's top-tier Apple Watch was the Series 6, which has all the same features as the newer Apple Watch 7 - the S6 processor, blood oxygen monitoring, ECG app, and elevation tracking - but a 20% smaller screen. It's discontinued now, which is why the price is so low. Still, we rated the Series 6 four out of five stars when we tested it, and it remains one of the standout wearables you can buy - at under $350 it's a bargain.

Apple Watch Series 3, 38mm: $199

Apple Watch Series 3, 38mm: $199 $169 at Best Buy
Save $30 -
We saw the Series 3 as low as $109 for Black Friday, but the stock was supremely limited and this is still a solid deal for the Apple Watch 3. This one's an older device but it's still a great smartwatch and worthy of the 4.5 out of 5 stars we gave it in our review. It's slower and less feature-rich than the SE, plus it's likely to lose watchOS support in the next few years. If you want a truly cheap Apple Watch, it's the best.

Apple Watch 5 GPS and Cellular, 44mm: $749

Apple Watch 5 GPS and Cellular, 44mm: $749 $459 at Amazon
Save $290 -
Right now on Amazon you can grab the Apple Watch 5 with cellular data at a saving of $290. That's for the 44mm model, and it's almost the lowest price ever, so this deal is well worth considering if you want a powerful smartwatch to pair with your iPhone.

Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 | 44mm | GPS: $279.99

Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 Classic | 46mm | GPS: $379.99

Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 Classic | 46mm | GPS: $379.99 $323 at Amazon (save $55)
This is a big and bougie smartwatch, especially if you opt for the cellular version, and the discount will barely help you there.
46mm | GPS & cellular: $429.99 $379.99 at Amazon (save $50)

Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 | 45mm | Bluetooth: $480

Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 | 45mm | Bluetooth: $480 $330 at Amazon (save $150)
If you want a big 45mm smartwatch at a hefty saving then you could do worse than this Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 at a $150 discount. That knocks a healthy 31% off the price, and is a great deal for an older but still highly capable Samsung wearable.
