Prime Day Apple Watch deals recap

Apple dominates the smartwatch market with its Apple Watch, and it's no surprise that this wearable gadget is among the most sought-after products on Amazon Prime Day.

Looking for Amazon Prime Day Apple Watch deals only? We have you covered, check out: Best Apple Watch Deals on Prime Day!

Apple Watch Series 7 (45mm)

Apple Watch Series 7 (45mm)

The Good

  • Bigger display for an overall improved experience
  • Brighter display indoors
  • Faster charging
  • Reliable and hiccup-free performance
  • Multiple timers

The Bad

  • Sleep Monitoring still doesn't track deep sleep cycles

Apple Watch Series 7 is the newest model available right now, and last time around it did get some great deals, including up to $120 off at Target. So during Prime Day you can get it for less than $300, how great is that?

Apple Watch SE (44mm)

Apple Watch SE (44mm)

The Good

  • More affordable price, great deal on cellular model
  • Fast performance

  • Very comfortable to wear

The Bad

  • No always-on screen
  • Still have to charge it every day
  • Sleep tracking less useful than on rivals
  • No ECG, no blood oxygen sensor
  • Does not work with Android phones

The budget model, called Apple Watch SE, did see Amazon Prime Day discounts last year, but those were pretty mild; we're talking a $30 dollar discount at Best Buy, for example. But since in 2023 this watch would have become 3 years old, we can definitely hope for better Apple Watch SE deals during the next Amazon Prime Day.

Apple Watch Series 6 (44mm)

The Good

  • Always-on-Display is very bright
  • Feels really fast
  • Quicker charging

  • Blood Oxygen monitoring could be more useful
  • Battery life isn’t amazing

The older Apple Watch Series 6 is most likely to see some good discounts this Prime Day too. Older models are always getting the biggest discounts on Prime Day, so once again - stay tuned - we'll have them right here for you when the time comes!

And less we forget the upcoming Apple Watch Series 8, which will also surely get discounts during Prime Day 2023! Stay tuned!

Prime Day Samsung Galaxy Watch deals recap

Samsung offers some great smartwatches these days, and if you're an Android user, picking one up during this Prime Day is definitely worth considering!

Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 Prime Day deals in 2022 included up to $101 off! Amazon was pretty generous with its Galaxy Watch discounts during that last Prime Day, covering many models and variants, so stay tuned for 2023!

The rugged Garmin Instinct Solar was $90 off at Best Buy and on Amazon - $200 off! Crazy high discounts also covered the more niche Garmin smartwatch models too, so you can pretty much choose any one and expect good deals for it during Prime Day 2023.

Prime Day Fitbit smartwatch deals recap

Fitbit may be well-known for its excellent fitness trackers, but the company also produces a number of quality smartwatches too. On last Prime Day Amazon sold the Fitbit Versa 2 was $40 down.

Last Amazon Prime Day the Fossil Gen 6 was $101 off and $110 off with different band models - the former just a silicone one, the latter - a more premium metal one.

Which smartwatch should I buy on Amazon Prime Day 2023?

So you've chosen to buy a smartwatch on Prime Day, you've bookmarked this page for when the event starts (right?) in order to get the best deals... But which smartwatch should you actually buy during Amazon's 2023 Prime Day? Need help choosing? Well...

The safest bet would be to get the Apple Watch Series 7 or 8 if you own an iPhone, or the Samsung Galaxy Watch if you're rocking an Android smartphone. Those two options from one of the most trusted phone makers in the world combine style with the smart features you'd expect from a smartwatch - fitness tracking, health tracking, getting your phone notifications, access to a smart assistant from your wrist... So either one would be a great safe buy for you this Prime Day!
