Apple Watch Series 9: $729 ($70 off)
The Apple Watch Series 9 packs advanced features into a slim smartwatch design that makes upgrading a no-brainer.
This latest model in the Apple Watch lineup — outside of the rugged and outdoorsy Apple Watch Ultra 2 — gives you everything you’d want in a smartwatch and more. (One exception: Blood oxygen monitoring has been removed from new models due to a patent dispute. While some remaining watches do retain this functionality, many of them do not; it’s a good idea to keep that in mind when buying.)
This model introduces a new “double tap” feature to control calls, music, and more with your thumb and forefinger, which is particularly fun and useful. There are also plenty of health-tracking sensors, like electrical heart monitoring, crash detection capabilities, and a sensor to track menstrual cycles.
Plus, there’s the big boon that you get with every Apple Watch: It seamlessly pairs with your iPhone for calling, messaging, apps and beyond. Stay in touch with your friends and family without having to keep a phone in hand.
Right now, Best Buy has this model marked down by $70 to $729 as part of its Best Buy Drops sale.
How do you choose the right Apple Watch for you?
An Apple Watch a pricey investment, so you want to make sure it’s the watch that’s worth it.
First, think about how much you’re willing to spend. For instance, you might want a more affordable Apple Watch SE than the rugged and decidedly more expensive Apple Watch Ultra 2.
Plus, it’s important to consider what features are most important; all Apple Watches offer health and fitness tracking, but the newer models come with additional features such as ECG capabilities, which might be appealing if you’re really focused on health monitoring.
Cellular connectivity is another addition you should consider paying extra for if it’s something you need. It lets you call and text without your phone, but keep in mind: It comes with an extra monthly cost from your carrier.
And of course, the way the watch looks also plays a part. Newer models offer more customization options in terms of finishes, colors and bands.
Lastly, consider the compatibility of the Apple Watch with your iPhone. Before you buy, you’ll want to make sure your iPhone model supports the watchOS running on the Apple Watch you’re interested in. All of these ideas can help put you on the path to the Apple Watch that’s right for you.
