Amazon is ramping up deals ahead of the holiday shopping season, and today we're tracking a few solid markdowns on AirPods Pro 2 and Apple Watch Series 8. This includes a rare discount on the AirPods Pro 2 and in the case of the Apple Watch, we're seeing all-time low prices on cellular models.

AirPods Pro 2

Tempted on the AW8, but I’m on mint mobile and still waiting on better prepaid options. I think T-Mo is the only carrier with a standalone plan (that isn’t family setup), but it’s still $20/mo before taxes and fees.

Wow that's a great deal on a month old watch.

Couldn't get me to buy lightning airpods if you gave them to me for free though.
Not sure what's the fuzz with Lightning charging port on the entire AirPods line up. The AirPods Pro gen 2 has a MagSafe charging case now.

Really? But you'd buy them with USB-C? The AirPods aren't lightning, just the case is. But I've never even plugged mine in. No need. They support regular wireless chargers and even the magnetic watch charger, which works amazingly - it's like a mini MagSafe. Port is basically irrelevant.

Think AirPods Pro 2 will get any steeper discounts for Black Friday, or is now the time to pounce?

Yep, not buying anything with a lightning port ever again.

I’ve literally never plugged any of my AirPods Pro in. It could have a serial port for wired charging and I wouldn’t even care.
I don't wirelessly charge airpods because they don't stop charging when they're done. I wake up in the morning and the case is still warm after 9 hours. I know they can't overcharge, but something is still happening to keep them hot.

Series 8 is tempting at that price, but Walmart has the series 7 $60 cheaper (41mm). For a person who doesn’t ovulate, we’re basically talking about paying $60 for crash detection, right?

Man, the AirPods Pro 2 are going to last years without a refresh. I’ll rather wait until they go down to $179 in a couple of months. The Apple Watch it’s even worse. By March we will see the price go down at least $100.
