The Apple Watch 9 may have lost its pulse oximeter, but there's still plenty to love about Apple's latest smartwatch -- including the price. This summer, multiple major retailers have dropped the price on both sizes of the popular smartwatch to some of the lowest prices of the year. So if you've been holding off on upgrading, the time to act is now. But don't go to the Apple Store to get a deal on the Apple Watch 9 -- you'll pay full price there. 

Instead, shoppers should head to Amazon, Walmart or Best Buy where they'll find tons of great Apple deals, including savings of up to $100 on every version of the trendy smartwatch.

How to get the Apple Watch 9 for $100 off


Amazon, Walmart and Best Buy are all offering some of the best Apple deals we've seen yet. In addition to steep discounts on both the AirPods Pro 2 and the popular second-generation AirPods, both retailers have slashed $100 off the price of every size and version of the Apple Watch 9. 

Right now, pricing starts at just $299 for the GPS-only version and just $399 for the GPS and cellular version of the latest Apple Watch -- a savings of $100 on either model.

With the new Siri Health upgrade, starting a new workout and getting status updates along the way is a breeze with the Apple Watch 9. Instead of navigating the watch screen, just say "Siri, start an outdoor run workout" or "Siri, start a yoga workout." Your new watch will immediately start tracking the activity, even when you're not connected to Wi-Fi or a cellular network.

It also ranks as one of the best heart rate monitors thanks to its accurate heart rate tracking. The smartwatch tracks other essential metrics, too, including blood oxygen levels, body temperature and more for a clear picture of how hard your body is working during each exercise. Plus, it's crack-resistant and swim-proof so you can wear it confidently no matter what your workout involves.

This makes the Apple Watch 9 a great smartwatch for HIIT workouts, runners or anyone who needs to interact with their watch during workouts to check stats or start and stop timers. The hands-free functionality will seriously improve your workout experience so you can accurately log your activity without having to fuss with your watch.

Top features of the Apple Watch 9:

  • Siri Health turns Siri into your built-in fitness trainer, letting you start or stop workouts, check your health stats, and more with voice commands on your watch, with no Wi-Fi required.
  • The new double tap gesture lets you control any active app on your watch by double tapping your finger and thumb so you don't have to stop or slow down to navigate your watch.
  • The improved dictation is up to 25% more accurate so you can reply to texts, emails and more while you work out.
  • You can take an ECG anytime.
  • The Apple Fitness+ app (three months free) offers new ways to train and gives deeper metrics into your body's performance.
  • Use Apple Wallet on the go so you can step out for a run without your phone.
  • The Apple Watch 9 is carbon neutral.

Save $50 on the new Apple Watch Ultra 2 at Amazon and Best Buy


Designed for serious athletes and outdoor adventurers, the new Apple Watch Ultra 2 (49 mm) adds a few more cool upgrades on top of those of the Apple Watch 9. Aside from the brighter screen (3,000 nits!), one of our favorite upgrades is the customizable watch face.

Modular Ultra, the watch face on the new Ultra, lets you customize which metrics and performance data are displayed on your watch. Each widget on the face can be customized to display whichever data you need so you don't have to toggle between screens anymore. Everything you need to check is on one screen.

It also boasts improved depth and altitude tolerance. Dive down as far as 100 meters (about 325 feet) or scale mountains as high as 9,000 meters (about 29,500 feet) above sea level. Since the tallest peak on earth is Mount Everest's 8,848-meter peak, that means you can take this to the top of literally any mountain on the planet.

The new built-in Depth app logs your dives and lets you review your most recent sessions on the watch. From your phone, you can see your complete dive history, complete with GPS pinpointed entry point.

The premium, rugged smartwatch regularly retails for $799 at Apple. Right now at Amazon and Best Buy, you can get it for $749 and up.
