This Apple Watch Series 7 deal is one of best Apple Watch Black Friday deals you can get. Let me tell you why! No, it's not *the latest* Apple Watch (i.e. The Apple Watch Series 8), but the truth is, the Watch Series 7 is not THAT much different from it (more on that later).

Right now, the Apple Watch Series 7 is $135 off its original price of $430. (opens in new tab) In other words, you can get the Apple Watch Series 7 for only $294 on Amazon (opens in new tab)! (opens in new tab) What's the catch? It's renewed. But there's good news! This Apple Watch Series 7 deal is from a highly reputable Amazon seller of refurbished Apple products. Plus, it's backed by Amazon's 90-day Renewed Guarantee. Win!

Save $135
on the 45mm Apple Watch Series 7! It offers activity and fitness tracking, heart-rate monitoring, sleep tracking, as well as blood-oxygen level assessments. If you're trying to jump back into fitness, you'll love that the Apple Watch 7 offers tracking support for calorie burning. It also delivers tracking support for 17 distinct workout categories.

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 $294. (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. Plus, it's backed by Amazon's 90-day renewed guarantee.

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
  • And much more!

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 brand spankin' 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.
