The Apple Watch Series 8 is just $280 during Amazon Prime Day 2023: Last chance


The Apple Watch Series 8 is the latest addition to the Apple Watch lineup. It features the new S8 chip for improved performance and an always-on display. The battery life can be extended to 36 hours when in low-power mode. The Apple Watch 8 features a durable design and is swim-proof, dust-proof and crack-resistant.  The Apple Watch 8 also has a number of health-tracking features, including an optical heart sensor, an electrical heart sensor for ECG readings, a blood oxygen sensor and a new body temperature sensor. 

The Apple Watch 8 lists for $399 on Apple's website. We saw some moderate discounts on the Apple Watch throughout the 2022 holiday season with prices around $350, but Amazon has never priced the Apple Watch (41mm) as low as $280, which it has done during Amazon Prime Day for Amazon Prime members. The larger 45 mm size is also on sale for $310.

We don't expect this list to last much longer than Prime Day, if it doesn't sell out sooner. If you're been thinking about a new Apple Watch, this is your likely best chance to get the best deal on this model, period.

I've tried so many of the more expensive brands, but this has become my go-to mascara."
