Why you should buy the Apple Watch Series 9

One of the best smartwatches around for Apple owners, the Apple Watch Series 9 is a delight to use. It demonstrates how smartwatches have truly come of age in recent years so they’re a must-have accessory, especially if you’re an active person.

One of the highlights is its ability to track all your movements. Via Apple’s Activity Rings system, you can monitor your steps, calories burned, stairs climbed, and much more. Alongside that, it sets personalized goals and rewards you with badges for completing certain activities. It’s truly motivating while being able to track many different activities from running to walking, swimming, lifting weights, or pilates.

The Apple Watch Series 9 has a great set of sensors too. You can keep an eye on your blood oxygen levels, take an ECG as needed, and you’ll also receive notifications if your heart rhythm becomes irregular or suddenly low or high. There’s also temperature sensing retrospectively to provide you with cycle tracking purposes. Other useful sensors include fall detection and crash detection keeping an eye on you whether you’re walking and falling or suffering a car accident.

Also tough with crack resistance, IP6X-certified dust resistance, and being swim proof, the Apple Watch Series 9 can be your constant companion, saving you from needing to grab your iPhone so often. It even tracks your sleep so you can build a good picture of how healthy you are.

The Apple Watch Series 9 usually costs $399 for the 41mm model with the 45mm model costing $429. Right now, at Walmart, you can save $50 on either model bringing the price down to $349 or $379. Check it out now if you’ve been waiting to buy a new Apple Watch.

In a surprise move, Amazon is continuing to offer the first serious discount on the recently released Apple Watch Ultra 2 as part of its Cyber Monday deals. It means you can buy the 49mm GPS + Cellular model for $60 off. That brings it down to $739 from $799. While that isn't a cheap deal by any means, it's rare to get such a discount on any of the latest Apple products so it's a promising offer for anyone who simply can't wait any longer for the high-end smartwatch. We can't say how long it'll stay this price and it seems pretty likely the deal will end soon, so let's take a quick look at what it offers before you decide to buy.

Why you should buy the Apple Watch Ultra 2
We tagged the Apple Watch Ultra 2 as the best premium smartwatch for the iPhone in our list of the best smartwatches, and at first glance, it's obvious why. The 49mm titanium case and Always-On OLED touchscreen will catch anybody's attention because of their size and brightness, while the wearable device itself is very fast and smooth because it's powered by Apple's new S9 chipset. The Apple Watch Ultra 2 can last up to 36 hours on a single charge that may be extended to up to 72 hours in Low Power Mode, and it offers a comprehensive suite of health-related and fitness features. It also comes with the customizable Action button for a more convenient way of accessing your apps.
