With a faster processor, a bevy of health and activity features, and a new control system, the Apple Watch Series 9 is one of the best smartwatches on the market. And while it only launched in September, it’s now going for its lowest price ever.
However, like all discounts on Amazon, you’ll want to add it to your cart and checkout quickly to ensure you get it before it sells out or, worse, the sale expires. Some colors and watch band combinations are already selling out.

With the introduction of Double Tap, the new gesture for controlling Apple’s latest watch, it’s safe to say that the Series 9 is high on folks’ holiday wish lists. This new control method lets you simply tap your index finger and thumb together to answer a call, scroll through notifications, control music playback, or even dictate a response using voice-to-text.
The Apple Watch Series 9 is also plenty responsive thanks to the new S9 chip that powers everything. And of course, then there are the health benefits. The Series 9 can tackle normal activity tracking for steps, total exercise minutes, and even calories burned. Plus, you can track your heart rate, take an ECG (electrocardiogram), monitor blood oxygen levels, and even take advantage of sleep tracking with a skin temperature sensor.
Thanks to all-day battery life, you can truly use it all day. And even when it runs low, you can fast-charge it using the included brick.
