Prime Day Apple Watch Price Predictions 2020: Series 3 and Series 5

Are you itching to buy an Apple Watch but stuck between taking advantage of one of the several Apple Watch deals available today or waiting to see what discounts Amazon Prime Day 2020 brings to the table? If that’s you, this post can help. We have looked back at the pricing for the Apple Watch Series 3 and Apple Watch Series 5 during Black Friday 2019, Prime Day 2019, and more recent sales to make some Prime Day Apple Watch price predictions at Amazon for 2020.

Please note our predictions aren’t based on insider pricing or leaks, nor are these set in stone. They may change as the months pass and we inch closer to Prime Day 2020. As such, we’ll continue to track Apple Watch pricing on Amazon and elsewhere. Analyzing past pricing and sales events, current prices, and recent trends generally result in reasonably accurate price range predictions.  With the release of the new Apple Watch Series 6, we’ll likely see some of the lowest prices ever.

RRP Prime Day 2019 Black Friday 2019 Best Price 2020 Today’s Price Prime Day 2020 (Prediction)
Apple Watch Series 3 (38mm, GPS) $199 $169  $199 $169 $169 $149 – $169
Apple Watch Series 3 (42mm, GPS) $229 $199 $228 $199 $199 $169 – $199
Apple Watch Series 5 (40mm, GPS) $399 N/A $380 $299 $344 $270 – $380
Apple Watch Series 5 (44mm, GPS) $429 N/A $405 $329 $413 $319 – $414

These predictions are only for the base GPS model of the Apple Watch Series 3 and Apple Watch Series 5. That’s because these versions of the Apple Watch are by far the most popular and are, therefore, the watches buyers wait to go on sale before pulling the trigger. There likely will be discounts on the Cellular + GPS variants too, but it’s safe to say their prices won’t drop as low as their GPS counterparts.
