There are still some Black Friday deals floating around even after the shopping holiday has ended, but we’re kind of surprised that the Apple Watch Ultra remains on sale, as this is rare for a high-end Apple product. Well, if you’ve had your eye on one and want to buy it, Amazon has them on sale for $739, down from the usual $799 they go for. Similar offers have started going offline though, so you should hurry if you want to avail of this one, especially since it’s unclear if the smartwatch will be part of the upcoming Cyber Monday deals.

Why you should buy the Apple Watch Ultra

There are many great things to say about the Apple Watch Ultra, and while it certainly is pricey, it has all the features that make it worth it. For starters, it has a large 49mm screen that gives you a lot more real estate to work with, and WatchOS 9 takes advantage of that, being more streamlined and having buttons that are designed better and are easier to work with. Of course, the new OS also brings a lot of improvements to fitness tracking, supplemented by newer and better hardware on the watch itself. For example, it not only displays more data tracking when you’re working out, but it also has better heart rate and blood oxygen sensors, as well as a couple of new accelerometers that can sense if you’re in a car crash.

That said, the two big standout features on the new Apple Watch Ultra are the Wayfinder watch face and the digital crown, both of which have a lot of customization. Wayfinder can show everything from longitude to compass direction. The digital crown can be set up to do whatever you want when you press on it so that you can pop open the app or features you use the most easily. As for battery life, you’ll be happy to know that it can hit the promised 36 hours and possibly even twice that if you have it in low-power mode. But, of course, if you lead a very active lifestyle and use all the fitness features, you’ll still have to charge it every day and a half or two, but that’s not necessarily a considerable downside.

Overall, the Apple Watch Ultra is precisely that: ultra. It comes with a premium price tag but is packed with features that make it worth it, especially if you’re big into fitness and are already looking at fitness watches in the several hundred-dollar price bracket. Luckily, you can still get it a little bit cheaper from Amazon for $739. However, it might also be worth looking at the other remaining Apple Watch Black Friday deals for alternatives, as well as our comparison between the Apple Watch Ultra vs. Apple Watch 8 to see if the extra price and features are worth it.

The Apple Watch Series 9 is one of the most confusing watches out there. It was banned due to a sort of IP issue with its blood Oxygen sensing tech. Then, the ban was lifted in late 2023. And, finally, the ban got reinstated (sorta) earlier this year. So, can you get the watch? Surprisingly, not only is the answer "yes" but also "yes, and on sale!" Right now you can get a 41mm version of the somewhat controversial watch that rests at the top of our list of the best smartwatches for just $429. That's $70 down from the usual $499. Tap the button below to find your watch or keep reading to see all the details about what it can do.

The Apple Watch is a fantastic piece of technology, but unfortunately its latest releases are pretty expensive. If you're fine with an older version of the wearable device, you may want to take advantage of Walmart's $60 discount for the GPS, 40mm model of the second-generation Apple Watch SE. From its original price of $249, it's down to a more affordable $189, and you won't be missing out on a lot of features. It's highly recommended that you make the purchase within the day, if possible, as tomorrow may already be too late to shop this offer.

Why you should buy the Apple Watch SE 2
The second-generation Apple Watch SE is featured in our list of the best smartwatches as the best budget smartwatch for the iPhone because you'll be able to access most of the features of Apple's wearable device at a fraction of the price of the flagship models. Its fitness-tracking features are comprehensive but simple to use, and it's comfortable to wear the whole day so you can maximize its battery life of up to two days on a single carge.
