The Apple Watch Series 6 just came out last fall and retailers are already starting to offer up discounts on the popular smartwatch online. Target has a number of limited-edition Apple Watch models available online, starting at $399. Your best bet though is to shop Amazon’s Apple Watch sale which gets you a brand new Series 6 smartwatch for just $349. The new price gets you a $50 discount off the regular price of $399.99+.
The Apple Watch 6 is the latest Apple Watch model and like most Apple products, almost never goes on sale. In fact, it’s still listed at $399 on the Apple.com website, so the $349 price on Amazon is the cheapest price we’re seeing online.
The Apple Watch Series 6 lets you check the time, take calls and reply to texts all from your wrists. Sync your music, podcasts and audiobooks to listen to a playlist while you’re on the run, or listen to your favorite author on your commute.
Apple Watch features include the ability to track your steps, heart rate and fitness levels – you can even customize tracking based on the type of workout you’re doing, from running and walking to cycling, yoga, swimming and dance. Speaking of swimming, the Apple Watch is listed as “swim-proof,” which means it’s safe to take into the water with you (though we wouldn’t recommend it for deep diving).
New to the Apple Watch Series 6 is the ability to measure your blood oxygen level, with an all-new sensor. Another new feature is the ability to monitor your heart rhythm, with the ECG app.
It’s not just a fitness and activity tracker — the Series 6 watch is the best smartwatch for the outdoors too. Built-in GPS is great when you’re on a hike or run; the “always on” retina display is also 2.5x brighter outdoors when your wrist is down.
Compared to previous Apple Watch models, the Series 6 display is 30% larger than the Apple Watch 3 (which is also on sale right now for $199 at Target.com). The S6 chip is also up to 20% faster than the Series 5, meaning your apps and stats load faster and smoother.
This Apple Watch deal gets you the Series 6 watch for $349, with multiple colors available. The current deal also gets you three months free access to Apple Fitness+, for dozens of instructor-lead workouts and fitness tips. Get the Apple Watch Series 6 for $349 on Amazon.com.
