Apple Watch Series 9 spring deals take $227 off cellular models – 9to5Mac

If spring weather has you thinking it’s time to upgrade to Apple’s latest and greatest, today’s $227 discounts on cellular Apple Watch Series 9 stainless steel styles is hear to answer the call. These deals come joined by Apple Pencil 2 at $79, as well as a rare chance to save on the Sonos Era 300 AirPlay 2 smart speaker at $359. Hit the jump for all that and more in the latest 9to5Toys Lunch Break.

Before you go shop any of today’s best Apple deals, don’t forget that the new M3 MacBook Airs are now available for pre-order. The 13-inch model starts at $1,099, while its larger 15-inch counterpart sells for $1,299. Both ship this Friday, March 8.

Amazon is now offering some of the best prices yet on cellular Apple Watch Series 9 stainless steel styles. Pricing on these higher-end wearables now starts at $472 for the 41mm GPS + Cellular configuration. It drops from the usual $699 price tag and is the best offer we’ve seen at $227 off. This is an extra $42 below our previous mention, too. Today’s savings carries over to the 45mm GPS + Cellular model at $598. This is down from $749 and saves you $151 while marking the second-best price since Black Friday. Go check out our coverage on what’s new this time around.

Now centered around the new S9 chip, Apple Watch Series 9 arrives with much of the same build as previous models – just with some enhancements. It’ll still provide the same fitness tracking experience as before, but now packs a 3,000-nit screen that can turn all the way down to 1-nit. There’s newfound pinch detection for one-handed interactions with your wearable that just rolled out at the end of last year, as well as a build that is the first carbon neutral release from Apple. 

These discounted models also still have the Blood Oxygen tracking features.

Amazon is now offering one of the best prices yet on Apple Pencil 2. The latest flagship iPad stylus drops down to $79 from its usual $129 price tag. This is $50 off and marking the second-best price to date. We’ve seen it down at $71 before, but that was back in December ahead of the holidays. Now, it’s on sale for the first time since while coming within $8 of that all-time low. This is the best Amazon has offered it for, too.

Apple Pencil 2 is far more compelling than just being used to make digital art, excelling as a note-taking tool on top of offering more precise input than your fingers. There’s a new hover feature that just rolled out for the M2 iPad Pros, and the accessory will snap right onto the side of your device to charge and for storage. It’s compatible with everything from the more affordable iPad Air 5 to the Pro models and even Apple’s compact iPad mini.

Sonos is now offering a rare chance to save on its latest Era 300 Smart Speakers. Each one drops down to $359 as part of its in-house refurbished listings. Both white and black models are available in this sale. This is the first discount we’ve seen in any condition, dropping from the usual $449 going rate you’d normally pay. There have been some bundles here and there with other home theater gear, but this is the first time a standalone discount has gone live on just a single one of the new speakers, let alone one that saves you $90.

The new Sonos Era 300 arrive as the company’s latest smart speakers. They’re not the entry-level Era 100s, but a more capable option centered around six custom class-D amps that power four tweeters and two woofers. Each speaker is capable of true stereo audio playback, while also boasting Dolby Atmos support and Trueplay tuning to customize sound to your specific room – not to mention Spatial Audio support. AirPlay 2 is enabled by Wi-Fi 6 connectivity, and there is also Bluetooth, plus a USB-C port with support for wired Ethernet and 3.5mm audio connections. It gains all of the other Sonos perks, too. Go get a closer look in our launch coverage.

Just after seeing Apple debut some new colors at the start of the month, Amazon is marking down an assortment of official Apple Watch Bands. We’re particularly focusing on the 45mm stylings today, with deals starting from $24. Each one drops from the usual $49 price tag and is $5 or more below our previous mention. There’s as much as 50% in savings attached and just about every one of the colors is down to an all-time low. We break down which styles are getting in on the savings below.

Comprised of a soft, breathable high-performance fluoroelastomer material, the official Apple Watch Sport Bands arrive in a pair of colors to either mix up the daily stylings of your wearable or refresh an aging option. Already ideal for working out, tagging along on hikes, and other fall-worthy adventures, these are just as comfortable for fitness companions as they are for daily wear. Each one of these will work with not just 45mm devices, but also 44mm and 42mm Apple Watches.

Anker’s official Amazon storefront is now discounting its popular PowerLine Flow III USB-C Cable to $14. This discounts the 6-foot cable down from its usual $22 price tag to a new all-time low. It’s over 35% off and beats our previous mention by an extra $3. You can also bring home some savings on the PowerLine Flow III Lightning cable if you’re rocking an iPhone 14 or older, with the 6-foot model at $17. That’s down from the same $22 price tag and saves you 22% – not quite an all-time low, but close. 

Covered in a soft tough silicone, these MFi Lightning and USB-C cables are some of the more premium offerings on the market. We found as much in our Tested with 9to5Toys review, with the added perk of USB-C connectivity helping ensure you can take advantage of faster charging times for the latest iPhones as well as Galaxy and Pixel handsets or even 100W charging for Macs and PCs. I personally love these cables and can easily reccomend them even more at today’s discounted prices.
