Andy Boxall/Digital Trends

The Apple Watch Series 6, the latest edition of Apple’s popular wearable device, is already offered with a discount on Amazon after just more than a month since it rolled out. You can buy the 40mm, GPS model for only $375, a $24 discount from its original price of $399. Meanwhile, the larger 44mm, GPS model may be purchased for only $415, down $14 from its original price of $429.

The Apple Watch Series 6 is powered by a dual-core processor based on the iPhone 11’s A13 Bionic chip, which makes it 20% faster than the Series 5. One of its most striking features is the always-on display, which was introduced on the Series 5. Instead of the screen going dark when unused for a while, the watch face subtly changes and dims to keep the time visible. This makes the device look even better on your wrist, but it doesn’t significantly affect battery life as Apple still promises 18 hours on a single charge.

For health and wellness buffs, the Apple Watch Series 6 keeps the electrocardiogram feature that was first added to the Series 4, which is useful for wearers with heart issues. It also adds the Blood Oxygen app, which can be used to help understand your overall fitness and wellness.

Also powering the Apple Watch Series 6 is watchOS 7, the latest version of Apple’s operating system for its smartwatches. In addition to ECG and blood oxygen measurements, watchOS 7 adds sleep tracking, handwashing detection, and new workout types, and it enables Apple Maps with cycling directions and Siri with language translation.


The Apple Watch Series 6 will likely be one of the most popular gift items as we head into this year’s holiday season. Whether you are planning to give it to a loved one or yourself, it’s hard to pass on a discount on a newly released Apple product, especially since there’s no guarantee that you can get a better deal on Black Friday or Cyber Monday. Amazon is offering the 40mm, GPS model for $375, for $24 off its original price of $399, and the 44mm, GPS model for $415, for a $14 discount. There’s also no telling how long this deal will last, so if you’re thinking about buying the latest Apple Watch, you should click on that Buy Now button as soon as you can.
