Prime Day is one of the few times of the year where you can score high-tech gadgets like smartwatches for way less. But this year, you don't even have to wait for the major shopping event to begin to score some epic deals. Amazon has already started slashing prices on several popular Apple Watch models weeks ahead of Prime Day.

These wearables have been super popular with Apple lovers since their debut in 2015, and they are still best-sellers on Amazon. The handy devices won't just help you keep track of your daily steps, but they also track things like your sleep, workouts, and heart rate. You can even link them to your phone to get texts, emails, and phone calls right to your wrist. And the best news? The current Apple Watch deals are just as good as the discounts you would have found during last year's Prime Day 2021 (yep, you can get an Apple Watch for just $199 right now).

There are three models currently on sale: the Apple Watch Series 3, the Apple Watch Series 7, and the Apple Watch SE. While they all have the same basic features, each model varies slightly differently in design, price, and functionality. Apple Watches tend to cost several hundred dollars apiece, but right now can score the Series 3 option for less than $200, the Series SE model for $229, and the Series 7 style at a $70 discount.

If these are still out of your price range, don't fret. There are plenty of much more affordable smartwatches with major markdown as well. And if you're super into fitness and looking for an option that will help you train, we've highlighted a variety of fitness trackers on sale too. Keep reading to shop the best early Apple Watch Prime Day deals, and don't forget to check out the rest of the discounted smartwatches on sale below.

Apple Watch Series 3

The Series 3 model is the most basic model on the list, but that doesn't mean it skimps on features. The white smartwatch comes with Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and GPS capabilities and has eight GB of storage to store your favorite music, podcasts, and more in the wearable device. It tracks your workouts (and menstrual cycle!), measures your heart rate, and is swim-proof — making it great for laps in the pool or surfing. The watch also boasts a gorgeous, easy-to-read retina display, is compatible with all iPhone models from 5s or later, and you can even set up Apple Pay with it, so you can grab a drink or buy a souvenir anywhere you go even when you don't have your wallet with you.

To buy: amazon.com, $199 (originally $229)

Apple Watch Series 7

If you're looking for a more updated model with lots of styles to choose from, consider the Apple Series 7. It has an always-on retina display that comes in two sizes: the 41mm, which is on sale for $329, and the 45mm that's marked down to $359 (plus, the Series 7 boasts 50 percent more screen area than the Series 3). The handy device can also measure your blood oxygen, track your sleep, and check your heart rate. Plus, you can take an ECG anytime, anywhere to ensure your health stays on track. It charges quickly and is crack-, dust-, and water-resistant. Plus, there are five aluminum color options, along with several stainless steel versions, paired with different bands (from sporty silicone to chic chainmail). Bonus: For an additional fee, you can even add a cellular plan to your device, so you can take calls and answer texts when you're not connected to Wi-Fi.

To buy: amazon.com, from $329 (originally $399)

Apple Watch Series SE

The Apple Watch SE is another model that comes in a variety of colors and sizes, and right now the 44mm option is marked down to just $279 — which is the lowest price it's been in 30 days. It works as a sleep monitor, heart rate monitor, and GPS, in addition to an activity tracker. Also worth noting: It comes with a built-in safety feature that can detect if you've fallen and can't get up. If that occurs, the watch will connect you with emergency services. However, you can also call for immediate help yourself by pushing and holding down the side button, even when you're traveling internationally — making the watch a great option for outdoor adventurers or solo travelers. What's more, you can link your credit or debit card to the watch, so you can use contactless Apple Pay and shop without carrying your wallet around.
