I wasn't expecting to see this Apple Watch Ultra 2 deal today (it's only a month old!)

The Apple Watch Ultra 2 was only released just over two weeks ago, so I wasn't expecting to see any discounts on it at all during the Prime Day 2 AKA Prime Day Big Deal Days event. But very surprisingly Apple's latest heavy-duty rugged smartwatch has $50 off right now, cutting the price to $749 at Amazon.

If you want the most capable, up-to-date Apple Watch on the market then this is the deal for you. It's obviously a record-low price for the Watch since it was only released last month – and we're actually surprised to see it reduced in price at all so quickly. (With the last year's Apple Watch Ultra 1, we didn't see any discounts until Black Friday).
