Apple Watch Series 8 (45mm Stainless Steel, GPS + LTE) for $349

Apple Watch Series 9 (45mm, Stainless Steel, GPS + Cellular)

The Apple Series 8 was released in 2022 and it’s only one generation removed from the newest model, the Seres 9. The Series 8 has all the premium features you’d expect in an Apple Watch like the always-on Retina OLED display, the very capable dual-core S8 processor, a rugged IP6X dust resistant and swimproof (to 50mm) casing, and a wealth of health features like ECG, blood oxygen, and heart rate meters.

This particular model isn’t your base Apple Watch. It has the stainless steel case, which raises the MSRP significantly (practically double the cost), as well as LTE connectivity. A similarly equipped Apple Watch Series 9 currently costs $699.

If you’re wondering what the differences are between the Series 8 and the Series 9, there aren’t many, especially considering the $350 price discrepancy today. The Series 9 upgrades include the new Apple S9 SiP processor with about 30% faster performance, a brighter display with up to 2000nits, a longer 18 hour battery life, and a new “double tap” feature that lets you perform functions with simple hand gestures. For most people, the upgrades aren’t really worth the premium.
