I can't believe this Apple Watch 8 deal is still live

I'm shocked that my favourite Labor Day deal is still live.This record-low price on the most powerful standard Apple Watch – the Series 8 discounts the Watch by 22% at Amazon, bringing it to just $309. That saves you $90 on the newest Apple Watch (if you like the M/L size, the S/M is not quite as well discounted).

To be honest, I'm mostly cross because I've missed out, having just bought an Apple Watch. Full disclosure – I bought the SE 2022, because I couldn't justify the extra money for the extra features of the Series 8. But this deal has made me regret my choice as the price difference is now minimal (only $10 if you're willing to sacrifice cellular connection on your Series 8). See our Apple Watch generations guide to find out which model is best for you.

Overview: The Apple Watch Series 8 is the newest and most powerful on the market – and has features none of the other models include. It's also the most durable of all the Watches, and the display is better, too. This deal is on the 41mm option.

Key features: Our Apple Watch 8 review explores the features, which include Crash Detection, Blood Oxygen sensor and app, Electrical Heart sensor and app, and temperature sensor. It also has all the usual messaging and call functionality, and more. 

Price history: The RRP is $399 for this model, though it's been fluctuating between $330 and $399 for a while now. This is the lowest we've ever seen by at least $30, and the lowest around at the moment.

Price comparison: BestBuy: $329.99 | Walmart: $329.99

Reviews: We gave the the Apple Watch 8 a very respectable four stars. On the plus side we loved the bright, always-on screen and fast, smooth performance, but we felt it was only incrementally better than the Series 7.
