The initial Presidents Day offers are beginning to show up. But if you can’t wait until February 20, Amazon and Best Buy are offering an amazing one-day sale on the best smartwatch you can buy. For a limited time, you can get the Apple Watch 8 (GPS/41mm) for $349 at Amazon – a $50 discount and one of the best Apple Watch offers ever. Best Buy is also offering the same deal on all color options.
The Apple Watch 8 has a range of new features, including a skin temperature sensor for period/sleep tracking, a crash detection feature, and the long-awaited Apple Watch low power mode that can extend battery life to 36 hours. It also has a larger screen than its predecessor, with a clear edge-to-edge display optimized for features like an always-on display, watchOS 9 faces, and a QWERTY keyboard for messaging.
The Series 8 may not be as thrilling as the more advanced Apple Watch Ultra, but if you’re not planning on taking your tech on any extreme adventures, it’s still the best Apple Watch to buy. In our Apple Watch Series 8 review we said it’s the ideal upgrade for owners of the Series 4 or 5, or anyone who wants a full-featured watch experience.
