The second day of Amazon Prime Day has arrived, and Apple Watch is still enjoying some bonanza savings across the entire range. Of all the Apple Watch models we've reviewed, the best discounts we're seeing are on the Apple Watch Series 8, and the Apple Watch SE.
That includes good savings on the cellular version of the Apple Watch, which gives you data on the move without the need for an iPhone, perfect for hikes or those long runs.
The good news is that many of the best deals have persisted through into day two, so if you missed out now is the perfect time to strike. And remember, Amazon's Price Guarantee ensures that you get the best price on a product should it fall again during the next few days.

Prime Day Apple Watch accessories deals
Apple Watches have loads of accessories that you can hook up, and they're often reduced over Prime Day. Here are a few of our favorites – hopefully they'll be reduced as we keep watch over them.
Apple Watch Band Trail Loop | $99 at Amazon
We're big fans of the Apple Watch Trail Loop – but it is also astronomically expensive for a thin strip of a fabric that keeps your watch on your wrist.
Misxi 2-pack case with screen protector |
$13.99 $10.99 at Amazon
A screen protector is always a good idea to strap on to your Apple Watch, so that you can protect the screen from all those accidental bumps and scrapes when you walk past wrist-height tables and counters. This particular Series 8 protector has a decent deal already, but hopefully, we'll see more options over the next day.
Is now a good time to buy an Apple Watch?
If you aren't worried about getting Apple's latest and greatest, then this is absolutely the best time to buy an Apple Watch. Apple will unveil a new series of models later this year, likely in September. But retailers like Amazon know this already, which is why they're trying to clear the decks of stocks with generous discounts.
The Apple Watch SE and Apple Watch Series 8 are both now sitting at their previous best-ever discounts, while the Apple Watch Ultra is not. The latter is the only one you might want to hold off on, as a previous low price of $739 isn't without question as Prime Day continues.
Apple Watch Cellular vs GPS: What's the difference?
Put simply, a cellular Apple Watch can connect to the internet using 4G without your iPhone nearby. That means you can stream music, podcasts, and receive and make calls and texts all while your iPhone sits safely at home. It's perfect for long runs and hiking. If you always carry your iPhone with you, a regular model should do you just fine!
How do I know that an Apple Watch on Amazon is genuine?
Make sure that whenever you buy an Apple Watch from Amazon you're getting it from the right store – there is an official Apple Store, and that's the only place on Amazon that's guaranteed to be authentic. This store has discounts, however, unlike the actual Apple website.
Whats the difference between GPS and Cellular?
It's simple: a GPS watch needs to be near a phone to receive texts and calls, while a Cellular one has its own data plan and doesn't need a phone.
