If you’ve been considering buying one of the latest 2020 Apple Watch models, but have been waiting for prices to drop, you’ll find some deep Black Friday discounts on Apple Watches at AmazonBest Buy and Walmart.

For example, you can find the Apple Watch SE and Apple Watch Series 6 for $49 to $69 off on some colors — their first big discounts since launching in September. We’ve also seen the discontinued Apple Watch Series 5 pop up for around $300 new in some places, and that’s worth grabbing.

Keep reading for the best Apple Watch Black Friday deals we’ve identified. Keep in mind that, while availability and prices were accurate at the time this story was last updated, they are both often in flux.

The Watch SE is the stepdown model in Apple’s 2020 wristwatch line. It’s similar to the 2019 Series 5, but without the always-on screen and ECG function. The Watch SE also boasts a more powerful processor and a Retina display that’s 30% larger than the much older Series 3 (see below). Unlike the Series 3, the Watch SE also supports Apple’s new Family Setup feature that lets you set up an Apple Watch for your kid, but you’ll need to spend up for that cellular version (and an accompanying wireless plan). The 44mm SE model had been seeing discounts as deep as $49, but those have subsided.

The latest Apple Watch with even more features is now on sale. In addition to an always-on display and ECG, the Series 6 monitors blood oxygen levels (though you shouldn’t expect medical-grade results there). Regularly $399, Target recently dropped prices to $350. That deal has since disappeared, but Sam’s Club has now dropped the price to as low as $330. Even better, Amazon is matching that price, at least on some colors. This is the first time this watch has gone on any sort of sale, so if you’ve been thinking about snapping it up, now is the time. Read our Apple Watch Series 6 review.

The larger Series 6 was originally only discounted at Target, but Amazon has since matched the price on some colors, although it looks like the earlier discounts are no longer available and the best deal will save you only $20. This may change as more models come back in stock.

This 2019 model was technically discontinued with the introduction of the Series 6 in September. That said, while it’s lacking the blood-oxygen meter, it has the Series 6 ECG and always-on display features, as well as the identical exterior design. At $299, it’s a good deal if the prices on Series 6 don’t drop back down.
