The Apple Watch SE is on sale for Black Friday at its lowest price ever

Priced at a very reasonable (by certain standards) $279 and up last year, the Apple Watch SE hasn't received a lot of substantial discounts (at least not without strings attached) during its lifetime so far, despite (or perhaps because) no direct sequel was released in 2021.

That strongly suggested the budget-friendly smartwatch would hit a lower than ever price this Black Friday, and indeed, Best Buy is already selling the GPS-only 40mm variant for $219, with the larger non-cellular-capable 44mm model fetching $249 in multiple different paint jobs.
Of course, you do technically get a chromatic choice with both sizes, but unfortunately, if you need standalone LTE connectivity on your wrist, you'll have to pay full prices... or give Best Buy and other major US retailers a little more time to spread the holiday cheer.
Keep in mind that, although you're looking at a "true" Black Friday promo here, marked and advertised as such, limited inventory of certain models could make it virtually impossible to join the party after a while.
Otherwise put, you might not want to wait very long if you have a dream of placing an extremely well-reviewed and reasonably feature-packed smartwatch under the Christmas tree for a special someone without breaking the bank in the process of procuring said device.
Granted, a $60 discount is not exactly life-altering, but a one year-old Apple timepiece for $219 and up with a premium, swim-proof design, high-res Retina display, powerful dual-core processor, always reliable optical heart rate sensor, always-on altimeter, built-in compass, and fall detection technology is not something you can get everyday with so little effort and no special requirements. In fact, that's something you don't see any day outside of huge nationwide sales preceding the winter holidays.
