The original Apple Watch Ultra is getting a rare $160 discount for the holidays. Released one year ago, Apple’s outdoor adventure smartwatch is now on sale for $639, down from its usual $799 price. This deal is available at Best Buy for the 49mm Titanium Case model. 

If you have been thinking about getting yourself or a loved one a new Apple Watch, now is the time to snag a great deal on the top-performing high-end model. 

The Ultra series is Apple’s most rugged and capable watch line. While the Apple Watch Ultra 2, released this fall, is the latest version, the Apple Watch Ultra continues to be an incredibly capable smartwatch that you can buy for a significantly lower price. 

When comparing the smartwatches, ZDNET’s wearable expert Matthew Miller notes the Ultra 2 does not have any major improvements compared to its predecessor — the biggest differences are the brighter display and the new processor.

When testing the Apple Watch Ultra, Miller put it through the most ruthless endurance test he could think of: a Tough Mudder 15K. He found the Ultra watch held up impressively well, especially since he completed the challenge without getting a single scratch in the display. During the Mudder, the watch updated Miller about one-mile splits, tracked his workouts, notified him of his heart rate, and identified several times when he had taken a hard hit, asking if he needed assistance. 

ZDNET reviewer Adrian Kingsley Hughes also tested the Apple Watch Ultra for nine months, and wrote that he was “impressed there [wasn’t] more damage to the case.”
