Once $279, the Apple Watch SE 40mm with GPS is now just $259, saving you $20. Its 44mm variant ($289), meanwhile, is on sale for $289, down $20 from $309.

Voted our best value pick for smartwatches, the SE was praised by our reviewers for its health and fitness tracking, which measures everything from heart rate to how many hours of shut-eye our testers were getting every night. Our team also loved the legible, bright display that worked great both in bright sunlight and in the dark hours of the night, as well as its impressive features, which put it on par with the more expensive Watch Series 6 ($349).

The only downside is that this affordable pick does not have an always-on display. The SE is also lacking in an ECG monitor and blood oxygen sensor, and its processor matches up to that of the Series 5 ($349)—the Series 6 is notably faster. That aside, the design between the two versions is almost indistinguishable.

More than 21,000 Amazon buyers also seemed to love this watch, awarding it a near-perfect 4.9-star rating. Shoppers adored its beautiful, intuitive design and attributes, such as fall detection, all of which come at a far more wallet-friendly price than other models. Additionally, both our team of testers and its happy customers enjoyed this watch’s water-resistant design, allowing you to wear this smart accessory even when you take a dip in the pool come summer.

For all you budget-conscious buyers, it doesn’t get any better than the Apple Watch SE. Snag it now at its lower price while stocks last.
