The Apple Watch is one of the most highly sought after deals this Prime Day 2023, but if you're looking to snag one of Apple's cheapest smartwatches (ahem, the first-generation Apple Watch SE), forget the deals on Amazon.

Instead, check out the Prime Day alternative deal on Walmart, which is offering the first-gen Apple Watch SE for just $149.99. That is $130 off its original listing price.

This is one of best (if not the best) Prime Day Apple Watch deals you can get.
