Amazon has one Apple Watch SE 2 model on sale at an unbeatable $80 discount
Do you have a larger-than-average wrist but a lower-than-average appetite for smartwatch spending? Then you might want to purchase a 44mm Apple Watch SE 2 with a "starlight" aluminum case and matching starlight sport loop on Amazon right now at a whopping 80 bucks under its $279 list price.

This is quite possibly the best smartwatch available on a budget in 2024 for iPhone users... at least until the third-gen Apple Watch SE presumably comes out in the fall with a faster processor and likely very few other upgrades in tow.

Apple Watch SE (2022)

44mm, GPS, Bluetooth, Apple S8 Processor, Retina LTPO OLED Display with 1000 Nits of Brightness, Fall Detection, Crash Detection, Compass, Always-on Altimeter, Built-in Speaker, Third-generation Optical Heart Rate Sensor, Starlight Aluminum Case, Starlight Sport Loop

Released in 2022, the second-gen Apple Watch SE packs the same in-house S8 chip as the high-end Apple Watch Series 8 from a couple of years ago. That makes this ultra-affordable wearable device pretty much as powerful as all of the best Android-compatible timepieces out there, but of course, you do need to make a few sacrifices if you decide to go with the Apple Watch SE 2 rather than splash out on the premium Apple Watch Series 9 from 2023.

We're talking no life-saving ECG technology, no blood oxygen tracking, no temperature sensor, and a smaller and lower-res screen (compared to the 45mm Series 9). Still, this Retina display is by no means a pushover, with an excellent 448 x 368 pixel count of its own and up to 1000 nits of brightness, and the fall detection, crash detection, Emergency SOS, and super-advanced heart rate monitoring features with irregular rhythm notifications are all present to strengthen a very hard-to-beat value proposition.

As highlighted in our comprehensive review back in 2022, the Apple Watch SE 2 also shines in the build quality department (considering its reasonable price) while rocking a water-resistant body (which is another big budget-friendly strength) but lacking always-on display functionality and thus falling short of low-cost smartwatch perfection.

Of course, a product doesn't have to be perfect to warrant your attention at an $80 discount that eclipses all previous 2024 deals on this same device, having only been beaten itself on Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2023 around six months ago.
