Looking to buy an Apple Watch Series 8 for your loved one this holiday season? Amazon has discounted the smartwatch by $50, bringing its price down to as low as $349.

The $50 off is available on the watch’s GPS and cellular variants. And if you place your order now, Amazon will deliver the wearable a week before Thanksgiving.

Apple Watch Series 8 is not a significant upgrade

Apple Watch Series 8 is a minor upgrade over its predecessor. The main highlight is a temperature sensor used for tracking women’s health. Other upgrades include a brighter display and improved accelerometer and gyroscope sensors, allowing the watch to detect when you are in a car crash.

Despite the brighter display and the new sensors, the Apple Watch Series 8 lasts about the same as previous models. Apple claims the watch can last up to 18 hours on a single charge. With fast charging, you can top up the cell from 0-80% in 45 minutes. As our Apple Watch Series 8 review roundup notes, the best smartwatch is only getting a tick better this year.

Apple’s best smartwatch is down to its lowest price again

The 41mm Apple Watch Series 8 retails for $399. Amazon has currently discounted it by 13% to $349. The deal is only available on selected variants of the watch, though. If you want cellular connectivity, the 41mm variant is available for $449, down from $499.

Sadly, the 45mm casing size of the Apple Watch Series 8 is currently sold out in both Wi-Fi and cellular variants. If you have bigger wrists, consider waiting for a deal from Best Buy or other retailers this Black Friday. But if you want an Apple Watch before that, this is your best option.
