One of the most anticipated Apple Black Friday Deals of 2021 is for the Apple Watch SE, which has dropped to its lowest starting price of $ 219 at select retailers. Best Buy has announced its Black friday sale earlier today, and the big box retailer has already delivered the Apple Watch SE starting at just $ 219 — and Amazon matched him.

Normally the Apple Watch SE starts at $ 279 (Apple’s current price), and the previous low we saw was $ 229 on Black Friday last year. It’s the best deal Black Friday Apple Watch we expect to see in 2021.

There are a few different color options available in Apple Watch SE sizes 40 and 44mm, but some of the configurations are already sold out at Best Buy. The base price of $ 219 is for the smaller 40mm size and if you prefer the 44mm you can pick one up for $ 249. With the Apple Watch SE, you get a bigger screen, like the 5 and 6 series, without the always-on part. You still get many of the same health-related features, activity tracking, and of course, notifications right on your wrist.

We know the Apple Watch Series 3 will be $ 109 at Walmart next week, but it’s a much better buy in the long run. There are new competing watches that work with iOS and Android, have modern features the Series 3 does not have, such as an always-on display, and will likely enjoy continued support for years to come. This last point is very important, because there is no guarantee that the Series 3 will see the inevitable next version of the Apple Watch model (probably WatchOS 9) after having already received four years of support. So be sure to grab the Watch SE now before it sells out.
