Today, select models of the Apple Watch Series 9 41mm are discounted to just $269, and others are down to $299. Select models of the larger 45mm Series 9 are also discounted by $130, down from $529 to $399, while other 45mm models are cut by $100, down to $329 from $429. 

The Series 9 offers all the newest features and is one step up from the base model SE. The Apple Watch Series 9 can track activity, steps, heart rate, respiratory rate, blood oxygen (lung function), wrist temperature, sleep, and environmental sound levels (to protect your hearing). And it uses algorithms and machine learning — aka, AI — to spot dangerous patterns and alert you to seek medical attention. 

Read the review: Apple Watch Series 9: Don’t settle for less expensive models, here’s why

ZDNET Editor in Chief Jason Hiner recommended purchasing it over cheaper models after reviewing the Series 9 in 2023. 

“Inside the Apple Watch Series 9 is the S9 chip which makes the popular smartwatch faster, smarter, and better at reading your body signals — based on my real-world tests next to the last-generation model. That makes this year’s Apple Watch Series 9 a generational step up. So, if you’re in the market for an Apple Watch right now, I’d specifically recommend getting the Series 9 (or the Apple Watch Ultra 2) because the health tracking is such an improvement from previous models,” Hiner said of the watch model in his review.
