That's right – in case you haven't heard by now, the Apple Watch Series 9 and Apple Watch Ultra 2 will soon be taken off shelves in the US, due to an ongoing legal dispute between Apple and health tech manufacturer Masimo. 

The ban on two of the best Apple Watches, which pack blood oxygen monitoring sensor technology Masimo claims infringes on its patent, starts on Apple's online store from 3pm on December 21 and in physical stores from December 24. While other stores like Amazon will be able to sell off stock, once it's gone, it's gone – until Apple can get its watches back on shelves again. 

So what we're saying is this: if you're looking to grab a discounted Apple Watch Series 9 or Ultra 2 from Amazon, you haven't got long to do so. Right now you can save $70 on the Apple Watch Series 9 and $50 on the Ultra 2, both surprise holdover discounts from Black Friday and great deals considering the incoming scarcity of these watches. Just in time for the holidays!
