Since it was first launched in 2015, there have been several models of the Apple Watch, with features that improve each year. Of course, you’ll want to buy the latest tech, so we’ve gathered all the offers that we could find for the Apple Watch Series 9 and the Apple Watch Ultra 2. For those who want to stick to a tight budget, we’ve also rounded up bargains for the Apple Watch SE.

The first-generation Apple Watch SE, which was released in 2020, and the second-generation Apple Watch SE, which was rolled out in 2022, are the most affordable ways of getting an Apple Watch. They don’t give up too much in order to keep costs low compared to their more expensive peers though. The Apple Watch SE 2, in particular, still provides comprehensive fitness tracking features, a comfortable fit, and excellent software as it can be updated to Apple’s latest watchOS 10.

There are many other models of the Apple Watch that are on sale across the different retailers. Older versions of the wearable device are still worthwhile purchases, as they’re still pretty quick by today’s standards, and they’re a more affordable way of joining the Apple Watch bandwagon.

Christmas check? Maybe a crisp 100 or two stuck in between the flaps of a card? To do your family right, you want to show them that you got a ton of cool high-powered loot from their gift. You know you can get great stuff from Apple, but the prices are usually high. Fortunately, Apple is kind enough to offer some great deals on their products in the post-Christmas window; giving you an opportunity to get something on the cheap. Organized by product type, here are the best Apple deals we've found after Christmas.
Best After-Christmas iPad deals

We're finding great deals on the Apple iPad 9th Gen, in various configurations. It's already our choice as the best iPad on a budget, so these deals make it even more appealing. The trick to choosing which deal you want to buy here is if you want more storage space and if you want cellular data in addition to WiFi. Our review recommends the 64GB version if you're mostly sticking to productivity tasks, but the 256GB version is best if you want to game on your iPad as well, of it "there is an app for that" for too many of your hobbies. Cellular capability gets more personal, but if you already have your phone for that and intend to use the iPad at home, there's likely no need.

The Apple Watch Series 9 has some of the most extensive health-related updates we've seen in a while, with a new suite of sensors and a ton of other things under the hood. Of course, being an Apple product, it is quite expensive, and if you're planning to grab one, then you'll likely want to go for an already existing deal.
