The Apple Watch Series 9 is likely on the way, but the Series 8 remains an ideal buy - especially with this Amazon deal.
Apple's 'Wanderlust' event tomorrow is expected to have big reveals for iPhones, iPads, and the Apple Watch - a perennial favorite for our best fitness trackers list.
Apple tends to shuffle older models off of its site quickly, which is a shame - because the Apple Watch Series 8 remains an excellent purchase for anyone with an iPhone that wants to kickstart their fitness regimen with a variety of apps.
Even better, Amazon has slashed 22% off of the MSRP, bringing the Apple Watch Series 8 to just $309.99 - a saving of $90.
Key features: GPS tracker, Crash Detection, temperature sensor, Third-party app store
Product launched: September 2022
Price history: We recently covered a similar deal, but this cuts a further $20 off of the prior price. That also undercuts Walmart and Best Buy's best efforts.
Reviews consensus: The Apple Watch Series 8 doesn't offer a huge amount of extra features on top of the excellent Series 7. We have a comparison between the Watch 7 and Watch 8 if you're interested. There's a temperature sensor that can help track ovulation, and crash detection, but watchOS 10 will add a huge number of improvements (and a new UI) when it launches in the coming weeks. That'll only make the Apple Watch Series 8 an easier recommendation.

Buy it if: You want to track steps, exercise, and more with a great-looking device. You want access to thousands of Apple Watch apps across multiple categories.
Don't buy it if: You're keen to see what the Series 9 has to offer, or use an Android phone - in which case an Apple Watch isn't a good fit for you. You want to run Ultra Marathons - check out the Apple Watch Ultra for that.
