Watch SE 1st Generation (GPS, 40mm)
The $149 price tag on the Apple Watch SE (1st Gen) makes it the most affordable wearable from Apple. Introduced in 2020, the first-generation SE is most similar to the Apple Watch Series 6 (without a few features) and can track fitness activities, alert you to notifications and monitor your heart rate. With your iPhone nearby you're still able to answer calls and texts, and the watch features a built-in GPS. It also has built-in fall detection and emergency SOS for added safety right on your wrist.
Watch Series 7 (GPS+Cellular, 45mm)
The on sale model for the Series 7 features cellular connectivity, so if you connect it to your phone provider's data plan, you can access calls, texts and data services without your phone nearby. It features many of the same tech specs as the Series 8, like sleep tracking, a heart rate monitor, ECG capability, blood oxygen monitor and activity tracking. The 45mm screen gives you a bit more room to tap on and an overall larger display. The wearable is $320 off in this limited sale.
Watch Series 8 (GPS, 41mm)
As the most recent version of the Apple Watch, the Series 8 offers the most advanced features and capabilities of all Apple tech. It has a longer battery life and charges faster than older iterations, allowing you to wear it for extended periods of time. One of its most noteworthy new features includes temperature tracking, which can help accurately track your menstruation cycle. (Note that to use this feature, you'll need to wear your watch while you sleep.) Our pros enjoy its intuitive interface, helpful fitness monitoring and more, naming it our best overall pick.
The 45mm GPS model is also on sale for $359 if you're looking for a bigger screen.
Watch Series 8 (GPS+Cellular, 41mm)
If you'd like to make phone calls from your watch without a phone handy or a Wi-Fi connection, you'll need to buy an Apple Watch that can connect to cellular. The Apple Watch Series 8 GPS + Cellular model comes at a slightly higher cost because of this capability, but it's currently on sale for 14% off at Amazon. Like the GPS-only Series 8, this watch can track your temperature, monitor your health metrics, provide sleep data and more.
Apple Watch SE 2nd Generation (GPS, 44mm)
If you're looking to upgrade to an Apple Watch but don't need the most advanced features, we recommend the Apple Watch SE. This entry-level smartwatch connects to your iPhone just like more expensive versions, allowing you to stay on top of texts and notifications without picking up your phone. It also has built-in GPS and activity tracking, so you can monitor your workouts and reach fitness goals. While it doesn't offer temperature monitors or sleep tracking, it has crash detection, fall detection and emergency SOS. Plus, you can shop the most recent version of the Apple Watch SE for $50 off thanks to a limited-time Amazon promotion.
