Although the Apple Watch Series 8 is no longer Apple’s latest and greatest wearable, it’s still not a product to knock. While newer models such as the Series 9 and even Apple’s base model SE (2nd Gen) saw price cuts last month for the holidays, the Series 8 did, too — and those savings are continuing well into 2024. 

This Presidents’ Day 2024 you can grab yourself or a loved one the Series 8 for just $249, saving you $150 on the tech wearable.

Right now, the Apple Watch Series 8 41mm is $150 off at Walmart, in the Midnight, Red, Starlight, or White sport band option, though stock has dwindled in some color options and band sizes.

It’s also IPX 6 water- and dust-resistant, contains 32 GB of storage, and offers several sensors, including GPS, altimeter, blood oxygen, optical heart sensor, accelerometer, gyroscope, ambient light sensor, body temperature sensor, and high-G accelerometer.

When former ZDNET expert reviewer Christina Darby reviewed the watch in 2022, she pronounced it a great buy. 

“The Apple Watch Series 8 is an incremental update to the classic, squircle smartwatch — and I’m not complaining. The same catalog of good-looking and practical watch faces is still there and, with the enhanced health and fitness tracking features, the watch is more useful than ever for helping me stay in tune with my body both during activity and at rest,” Darby said in her review

If you’re OK with not having the newest model, the Series 8 makes a great purchase — especially while still discounted.
