Apple Watch SE hits its lowest-ever price for Cyber Monday — and it's now too good to miss

Despite telling myself (and everyone at iMore) just last week that I would not be getting an Apple Watch SE in the Cyber Monday sales, I have just picked one up. Originally citing the extra sensors, brighter screen, and better battery life thanks to its being a new bit of tech, a recent deal has caught my eye that I just couldn’t say no to.

Where to find the best Cyber Monday Apple Watch deals

The Apple Watch SE is already a cheap device so it was hard to imagine a significant enough reduction for me to justify not just paying more to get a nice Apple Watch Series 8 or even the Series 9 which is currently the best Apple Watch. However, with a whopping $70 off, this is the cheapest we have ever seen it sell for. The best Cyber Monday Apple Watch deals are in and they are great. My partner is looking for a new Apple Watch and she has already picked out her specific band, color, and size. It helps that the SE is a very pretty little device.

The Apple Watch SE has many of the functions expected of modern smartwatches whilst tactically doing away with a few to offer it at an excellent price. With the S8 chip seen in the Series 8, up to 100 nits of brightness, a Retina Display, and a heart sensor, it is excellent both for on-the-go and just checking notifications at home.

If you happen to pick up this offer from Amazon, you can take advantage of their Cyber Monday price match scheme. If you buy it now and the Watch is further reduced over the Black Friday / Cyber Monday period, you will be reimbursed the price difference. If you have been after an Apple Watch for a while, now is the perfect time. 

My partner has watched me get quite a lot out of my Series 7 and has finally decided to take the plunge too. Despite the fact that more expensive models offer cool functions like a temperature sensor, blood oxygen sensor, and always-on display, this is such a good deal that she doesn’t feel the extra money is worth it. At this price point, I think she’s right.
