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 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.
The larger Apple Watch Series 5 is currently priced at $329, down $100 from its regular sales price. This model doesn’t have a blood-oxygen meter, but it does have the same exterior design and display features as the Series 6.

This model had been seeing discounts as deep as $49, but those have subsided.
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.
With its older design and dearth of bells and whistles, the Apple Watch Series 3 is getting long in the tooth. But with Walmart selling it at an all-time low of $119 (for the 38mm model), you could get two Series 3 models for the price of one SE. Currently, the white model is sold out, but the black is still available.
The larger Apple Watch Series 3 will also be $49 off at Walmart starting Nov. 25.
