This is perhaps the first time we can say that there's an Apple Watch to be had for under AU$350. Yes, you read that right – and you don't even have to opt for a very old model of the Apple Watch in this deal!

With Black Friday sales in Australia already here, it's good to see that Amazon has slashed the price of the Apple Watch SE (2022) GPS-only model down to $346. That's a $53 discount on what is the best-value Apple Watch available right now.

We've been closely monitoring Black Friday Apple deals – having previously found deals on MacBooks –  as there usually isn't any discount on the Apple Watch SE 2, so this truly is a pleasant surprise. We've not seen the Apple Watch SE 2 ever drop below $395 before, so you really ought take advantage of this offer before stocks run out of Amazon decides to call the deal off.

As we've already mentioned, this is a record-low price, and the best-value Apple Watch you can buy right now. While the Apple Watch SE isn't as full-featured as the Apple Watch 8 or 9, it still packs a fast processor, plus great health and fitness features. Note that this price is only on the 40mm GPS version in the Midnight/Aluminium colourway and the Silver chassis. The Starlight colourway is $2 more at $348.

While the best price is on the base model of the Apple Watch SE 2 – aka the 40mm GPS-only model – you can also save on the bigger screen version or get LTE connectivity too. Even these discounts the best we've seen on the Apple Watch SE to date.

If you want to use the best-value Apple Watch without the paired iPhone, you will need the LTE version, which gets $50 shaved off its asking price on Amazon in all three colourways in the 40mm chassis size. Note that to use the LTE version of any Apple Watch, you will need to get it connected on a plan by your chosen telco, which will cost you extra each month.

If you want a bigger screen, the 44mm Apple Watch SE 2 with Cellular connectivity gets 9% off, down to $479 from $529.
