A $50 price drop wouldn’t raise an eyebrow on the Watch Series 9 alternatives, but this is Apple we’re talking about. Not only does the manufacturer give little in the way of markdowns in general, but it also knows what it has in the best smartwatch you can buy — something we’re happy to admit, even with our Android bias.
Apple Watch Series 9
Apple’s most convenient smartwatch
The new S9 chip makes the Apple Watch Series 9 the most capable, and battery friendly Apple watch to date. Enjoy improved security, improved functionality in low-connectivity situations, and improved health tracking. Introducing new Double-Tap gesture.
While maintaining its classic design, the latest Apple watch introduces a brighter display and the new S9 chipset for enhanced performance. It retains an 18-hour battery life, which can extend up to 26 hours in practice. Notable features include the Double Tap gesture control and onboard Siri processing, with future updates expected to leverage the new hardware. The Series 9 also boasts eco-friendly bands and recycled aluminum cases. It runs on watchOS 10, which brings stackable widgets and a smarter interface, aligning closely with the iPhone experience. The watch supports advanced health and fitness tracking, including heart rate and GPS sensors, and is water-resistant up to 50 meters.
This is going to be a very popular Apple Watch deal, so we wouldn’t be surprised if stock levels cut it short. Check it out while you can via the widget above.
