Good news if you are just waking up – Amazon and Best Buy have cut the price of the Apple Watch Series 7 by $70. That brings the price for the smaller 41mm model to $329.99 and the 45mm model to $359.99. 

It’s a great discount – the best we’ve seen – and the Apple Watch really is in its league of its own.

Save $70: The latest top-of-the-line Apple Watch is a great activity tracker with advanced health monitoring features like the ability to take an ECG. It’s a cut above other smartwatches and if you’ve been eyeing one up it’s unlikely you’ll see a substantially better deal any time soon. Five aluminium case and sport band combinations are included in the sale – that’s PRODUCT(RED), blue (pictured), green, midnight and starlight.

The Apple Watch, as you are probably tired of hearing, is good. It is very good. I’ve edited reviews of Apple Watches from the Series 3 onward and it gets better and better with every generation. 

But quite how good it is has to be experienced. I’ve worn smartwatches from Fitbit, Garmin, Samsung, Mobvoi, Huawei and Honor, but only recently got the chance to try an Apple Watch. The whole experience is much slicker and it doesn’t suffer from the little frustrations and sticking points I’ve found can afflict some smartwatches.

Coach’s senior writer Nick Harris-Fry can also attest to the accuracy of the sports tracking. In his Apple Watch Series 7 review he called the heart rate monitor ”impressively accurate for a wrist monitor” and the GPS “reliably great”. 

I can’t vouch for that yet because I’m not prepared to switch from my personal Garmin and derail my training status. Yet… (speaking of Garmin, we have also been collecting Garmin Memorial Day Sales if you’re more on the lookout for a bargain running watch). However, the Apple Watch automatically pulled in the runs recorded on my Garmin and updated my activity goals accordingly.

On top of that there’s a three-month trial to Apple Fitness+ workout app included (four months if you buy from Best Buy). It’s a slick experience and most importantly works effortlessly between devices – and we could all use less time scratching our heads in front of technology which won’t play ball.

As well as this deal, there is a $30 discount on the more affordable Apple Watch SE from Best Buy and others.
