A few pre-Christmas deals on the Apple Watch Series 7 have returned this week, taking $50 off the 41mm and 45mm GPS models of the latest Apple Watch. Starting with the 41mm GPS Apple Watch Series 7 in Green Aluminum with a Clover Sport Band, this model is available for $349.00, down from $399.00.

The only other 41mm GPS model on sale at this price is the Starlight Aluminum with a Starlight Sport Band, but stock is dwindling. We did see this Series 7 model go down by another $10 before Christmas, but today's sale is a solid second-best price.



If you're looking for the larger watch, Amazon also has the 45mm GPS Apple Watch Series 7 in Blue Aluminum with an Abyss Blue Sport Band for $379.00, down from $429.00. As of writing, this is the only 45mm GPS Apple Watch Series 7 model on sale at Amazon.



Lastly, there is one Cellular device being discounted this week on Amazon. You can get the 45mm Cellular Apple Watch Series 7 for $479.00, down from $529.00. Be sure to visit our full Deals Roundup to shop for even more Apple-related products and accessories.

Anyone know of discounts available in the UK?

Having eventually managed to get a MacBook Pro 14" down a bit, I don't want to end up spending that saving on a full price watch.

You could see that a lot of people weren’t buying the Apple Watch Series 7 for Christmas presents.

The people I know who were buying Apple Watch as gifts were buying the more expensive material versions, not these color versions. There clearly is lack of demand for these colors. They're still selling Series 3 for some reason, but Series 4 stainless trade in value not enough to move needle for my wife to buy a new one right now.

Yeah, I don’t quite understand why they still sell the Series 3. My only guess is because it’s their most popular and cheapest. Probably wait another year and it will probably stop selling.

The S7 is not a compelling upgrade for existing owners of earlier devices, and it's a bit steep for a casual gift. Understandable that it might not be selling well at the price point.

I have a new S3 that I picked up for $110, and since it runs WatchOS 8 it can do probably 90% of what an S7 can do. Why would I want to spend $250+ more for a slighter larger screen?

I imagine the S8 will have to be a major generational leap, whether in the health monitoring tech or some other aspect.

The series 7 wasn’t that compelling enough for me to upgrade from my series 3.

Hopefully the 8 will be.

I received an Apple Watch 7 for Christmas to replace a series 2. It still worked, but the battery was slowly dying after merry than five years. The biggest change for me is the much larger display which is great.

my SS3 still has 86% battery life. I only use the calorie and timer features for working out. its laggy but I don't play with it enough to experience the lagginess. I'll wait for the 8 because these are ugly colors

The green one is the least popular model and has been on sale ever since the initial launch crush was over. Walmart has had the green one on sale for 2 months now.

Apple takes 5 steps forward and one step backwards each time. these colors are ugly and I cant see any man wanting them unless hes the green hair type. to make a poop green before some popular color like pink or one to match that purple iPhone. even a pistachio would match the phone and case. im not saying I want a purple watch. Im saying they made these watches appeal to girls and then threw in a poop green. How about just throwing in one simple guy color like black.
