Amazon is now offering one of the first chances to save on a stainless steel Apple Watch Series 9. The more premium 41mm GPS + Cellular wearable now sells for $542.83 shipped after you’ve clipped the on-page coupon. This is down from its usual $699 price tag and marking the third-best offer we’ve seen. It’s the first markdown since back in the beginning of November, and is still one of the first discounts of any kind since launching last fall. If one of Apple’s standard aluminum cases isn’t going to cut it, then you can at least step up to the more elegant stainless steel model without paying anywhere close to full price. Go check out our coverage from 9to5Mac on what’s new this time around, and then head below for more.
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.
If none of the bands included with today’s Apple Watch discounts are quite the style you’re looking for, you can also just shop all of our favorite band recommendations. Breaking down the best options out there for any style or budget, there’s an assortment of curated leather bands, metal link straps, fitness-ready solutions, and other accessories for Apple Watch Series 9 and Apple Watch Ultra 2.
