Although not particularly steep discounts, given that it's launch day these are pretty solid deals for anyone who planned on picking up one of the new Apple Watch models today. If you want a bigger markdown, and are okay with buying a previous generation device, Amazon has the original Apple Watch Ultra at $99 off in select colors right now.

A few of the Apple Watch Ultra 2 models are temporarily out of stock right now, but Amazon notes that you can place your order at the discounted price and they will email you when they have an estimated delivery date. Otherwise, most models of both the Ultra 2 and Series 9 will deliver between September 24 and September 27.

For me, mobile tech has really matured.

Increasing base prices on what is essentially 5 year old tech isn’t a deal. It’s robbery.
Some battery life. New cable. For $2000 you gonna have to literally revamp the whole thing. Take some risks.
As a person who used to upgrade annually and has had every iPhone from the 3GS -> 13 pro max (barring the iP11, and I used to by the plus and small versions) I feel like unless Apple do something crazy awesome the days of people upgrading even every three years, is numbered. It’s really stale and really expensive.
Base Prices have actually decreased compared to 5 years ago, almost everything has increased by 30-40% from 5 years ago due to inflation.
Apples prices have stayed the same, which means in real terms they're 30-40% cheaper, taking inflation into account.
That's just a fact!

Got my ultra for a pretty sweet deal. Traded in series 8 watch for $190 credit, Purchased a Macbook Pro, and got a $150 gift card with a student discount. Used my veterans discount to purchase the Ultra 2 which knocked off another $90. I had $117 cashback from using my Apple card to purchase said MacBook Pro and a MacBook Air. So I paid $253 for the watch before taxes.

I got $80 off ultra 2 through Best Buy card
Same, but got SS9, saved $75. Just got it delivered, waiting for 15 Pro that should follow it today also, because I don't feel like upgrading old phone to 17.

How did you get $80 off?
There is a promo code when paying with the Best Buy credit card. Saves you 10%.
You also get 5% cash back with the purchase so I bought the ultra 2. $80 off and $35 cash back.
Also got free applecare+ because I have BB total tech service.
