We're here to bring you the best Apple Watch Series 8 prices available, and there's plenty to choose from. Released in September 2022, the Apple Watch Series 8 is relatively new, which means there's not huge amount of discounts (like you'll find on the 5 and 6), but there are deals out there if you know where to look.

The Apple Watch Series 8 was released at the same time as the Apple Watch Ultra, and considering the higher price point of the Ultra the Series 8 is a great alternative is you're looking for something a bit cheaper. Whilst the Ultra is priced at $799/£849, the Apple Watch Series 8 currently has a starting price of $399/£419 that then goes up based on cellular compatibility and colour. We're hoping that in the coming months we see that price drop further. If you scroll down to the bottom of this page, you can find further information about the Apple Watch Series 8 as well as our hands-on review of this fantastic smartwatch.

Apple Watch Series 8

The best (affordable) Apple Watch available right now.

Size: 41mm & 45mm | Chip : S8 SiP with 64-bit dual-core processor | Always on screen: Yes | ECG and blood oxygen: Yes

Same retail cost as the Apple Watch 7
New skin temperature sensor
Updated crash detection
Low power mode = 36 hours use
The 7 is a good alternative 

The past few years were not great for deal seekers on the then recently released Apple Watch 7, as stock issue meant that the price didn't much budge during the following months, and if there were any deals, they disappeared quickly. We're hoping for better when it comes to the Apple Watch Series 8 price. First of all, it's priced at the same original retail price as the 7, though it comes with better features (see above). And (fingers crossed), if it doesn't suffer the same stock supply issues that the previous iteration did, and judging by recent retail events like Black Friday we've seen some good Apple Watch 8 price reductions popping up.

But we still think that the current retail price of the watch is decent – especially when you consider the slightly crazy asking price for the Apple Watch Ultra. That's going for $799/£849, and even though it is the latest and greatest Apple Watch, that's an eye-watering asking price. The Apple Watch Series 8 price of $399/£419 on the other hand is positively cheap in comparison. 

When was the Apple Watch 8 released?

The Apple Watch Series 8 was released on 23 September 2022, alongside the new Apple Watch SE and the Apple Watch Ultra. It was priced the same as the original asking price of the Apple Watch Series 7 – $399/£419, though it has several new features. 

Apple Watch 7 vs Apple Watch 8: What's the difference?

The Apple Watch Series 8 is priced the same as the Apple Watch Series 7 was on release – $399/£419. But there are a few differences between the two. Chief amongst them is that the Apple Watch Series 8 comes with skin temperature sensors and crash detection. Perhaps equally as innovative is the new low battery mode that can bulk up usage up to 36 hours. 

The skin temperature sensors will be great for people who want more stats on their cycling, or women who want to track their fertility more accurately. The crash detection will do exactly that. There are no real design differences, apart from the different strap colour options. 

Is there an Apple Watch 8 Pro?

In a way – but it's not called the Apple Watch 8 Pro. Instead, Apple released the Apple Watch Ultra at the same time as the 8, and it really is something special. Have a look at our hands-on Apple Watch Ultra review. But beware, it comes with a price tag to match! $799/£849 to you... any takers?!
