Update 11/24 3:25 pm ET: The renewed 41mm Apple Watch Series 7 features in this deal is no longer available at this price, but you can get a renewed 45mm Apple Watch Series 7 in Midnight for $294 (opens in new tab), which is $135 off its original price and $45 off its typical retail price.

This Apple Watch Series 7 deal is one of the BEST Apple Watch Black Friday deals you can get. And I'll tell you why! No, it's not the latest Apple Watch, but the truth is, it's not much different from the new Apple Watch Series 8 (more on that later).

Right now, the Apple Watch Series 7 is $115 off its original price of $400. In other words, you can get the Apple Watch Series 7 for only $284 on Amazon! (opens in new tab) What's the catch? It's renewed, but fortunately, this Apple Watch Series 7 deal is from a highly reputable Amazon seller of refurbished Apple products.

Sure you can get the Apple Watch Series 8 for $349 on Amazon right now (opens in new tab), but I would HIGHLY recommend that you don't, especially when you can get the Apple Watch Series 7 for ONLY $284. (opens in new tab)

And as mentioned, the Apple Watch Series 8 is not that much of an upgrade compared to the Apple Watch Series 7. Although it's renewed, it comes from a reputable seller that promises a guaranteed functioning smartwatch in excellent condition.

Like the Apple Watch Series 8, the Apple Watch Series 7 also offers ...

  • Tracking for 17 distinct workout categories
  • Calorie burning tracking
  • Built-in GPS 
  • An accelerometer
  • A gyroscope
  • ECG sensor for signs of atrial fibrillation and heart rhythm irregularity
  • blood-oxygen level monitoring

Some differences worth noting is that the Apple Watch Series 8 features a skin temperature sensor (the Apple Watch Series 7 does not). And the Apple Watch Series 8 has an improved gyroscope for fall and crash detection (See our Apple Watch Series 7 vs. Apple Series 8 face-off for a full comparative analysis.)

But at the end of the day, the Apple Watch Series 7 looks exactly like the Apple Watch Series 8 design-wise. So you can still walk around with an Apple Watch that looks new!

In our Apple Watch Series 7 review, we were impressed with its health/fitness tracking and intuitive interface. We also loved its big, bright display and stylish design. Overall, it earned a rating of 4.5 out of 5-stars from us (we also gave it an Editor's Choice badge that we do NOT give out all willy nilly).

Black Friday 2022 falls on Nov. 25 and we expect to see tons of excellent holiday deals on Apple Watch. Be sure to bookmark our Apple Watch Black Friday deals hub for the best discounts.
