We're still a week away from Black Friday, but deals are already starting to hit with increasing frequency. The latest one comes from Amazon with a $60 discount on all Apple Watch Ultra configurations, bringing them down to $739.

Note: MacRumors is an affiliate partner with Amazon. When you click a link and make a purchase, we may receive a small payment, which helps us keep the site running.

This is the lowest pricing we've seen for the Apple Watch Ultra, which was just released in September. Previous maximum discounts have only been in the $20 range on select band options.

Configurations include:

I wish macrumors would affiliate with a local store like Costco. Something accessible. Amazon is a process, in both purchasing and returns. Also you get 90 days on Costco electronics
Pro tip: Best Buy and Target price match with Amazon.

I actually recommend buying from Target because their policy is if the price drops lower between now and December 24, they'll adjust the price. Even if you buy it now and it goes on sale 4 weeks from now. But the caveat is that it has to be a lower price at Target, not a competitor.

However, if a competitor has a lower price 14 days after you buy something, they'll adjust the price.

Not bad!! Love the Ultra, it's absolute beast! I'm waiting....or hoping for the Apple Ultra bands to go on sale....maybe?

$99 is kind of silly to me for fabric or silicone, might do $69 for the Ocean band if it goes on sale. We'll see I guess. (off topic, Best Buy does have quite a few Apple watch bands on sale now. Kicking myself for not getting Sequoia Green Leather Loop for $49)

I can't get over the bulk. The regular versions are too thick as is IMO (height from the bottom of the watch to top of the display). The ultra is 35% larger in that dimension. Good deal though for those that like large watches.

Amazon returns are infinitely better and easier than Costco returns for high ticket items. Every product over 500 bucks from Costco results in months of waiting for a refund. I've had to resort to chargebacks twice to get it completed. Their customer service agents will lie and stall you endlessly.

Note that this is Costco online. I probably should have just went to the warehouse and returned it in person.

I’m going one more year with my Apple Watch Series 3 before I upgrade.
The S3 to Ultra is a massive upgrade, but to each their own. When you do decide to upgrade, it will be a quite the upgrade.

As an aside, I turned off the cellular on my Ultra, just never used it without my phone, and logging 30-45 min workouts, plus 14 hours on wrist and AoD always left on, I’m averaging 78% battery left by end of day. Extrapolating, that’s 22% battery drain over 14 hours with a workout or just 1-2% loss per hour. The battery on the Ultra truly is ultra (for an Apple Watch). Very happy with Ultra.

For Amazon credit card holders, does one ALSO get a 5% kick-back after the fact? Makes it about $100 overall less than apple, plus ~$10 tax, now we’re talking real money. Can easily buy a 2nd band for that amount.

Granted, I get 3% off with Apple Card and 24 months interest free to pay for it, but $$ talks at some point.

I can still return my AWU (replacement due to scroll wheel problem) hate to do that to apple but their CFO must understand. ;-)
