Watch this: Apple Watch Series 9 Review: A Slightly More Convenient Watch
If you’re looking to upgrade to one of the best smartwatches Apple has to offer, the Apple Watch Series 9 is right up there. In fact, it’s already earned a spot on our list of best smartwatches of 2023. Of course, it’s still a relatively new watch, so there aren’t a lot of straightforward discounts. Instead, you’ll mostly find trade-in credit offers, or buy one and get another one at a discount. If you buy the watch from almost any other retailer, you can get it for about $9 cheaper than at Apple’s store. We’ll keep updating this page regularly as we find better deals, so be sure to check back.
Upgraded with a new S9 chipset, the first meaningful processor change since the Apple Watch Series 6, the Apple Watch Series 9 is faster than ever while being even more power efficient. The S9 chip enables a new feature Apple is calling Double Tap, which allows you to operate the watch using just the thumb and index finger on your watch-wearing hand.
The 2023 Apple Watch is also the first to include on-device Siri commands, new Ultra Wideband capabilities and a brighter display for better outdoor visibility. A new pink aluminum color is available this year.
