If you’re searching for certain gadgets or tech items this Cyber Monday, good news: Retailers like Amazon, Target, Best Buy, Walmart and more are offering notable discounts during the event, some of which end tonight. (Other deals may run through the end of the week.) You can even find deals on products that are rarely on sale—like gadgets from Apple. In fact, the Apple Air Pods Pro are at their lowest price ever. Another favorite among shoppers and one of Apple’s newest models, the Apple Watch Series 8 is currently on sale, with the sale ending on Nov. 28. While it’s only 13% off right now, it’s hard to find steeper markdowns on the tech giant’s latest launches. And, to evaluate the quality of this deal, we ran them through price trackers like CamelCamelCamel and Honey to ensure it’s at its lowest price in at least three months.

Released just this fall, the Apple Watch Series 8 goes above and beyond your average smartwatch. It’s now equipped with safety features such as fall detection, emergency SOS and crash detection, Apple says, and is built with a temperature sensor that’s able to track your sleep patterns, even getting as granular as noting your sleep stages. It also has a new and improved Workout app, which offers detailed metrics to help you personalize your workouts and goals.
Apple says the Series 8 is both water- and dust-resistant, too, and offers up to 18 hours of battery life to keep you covered the whole day. And, as with other Apple watches, you can make calls, text friends, stream music and podcasts and even pay for purchases with Apple Pay. It’s also Bluetooth-enabled and can seamlessly connect with your other Apple devices.
The Apple Watch Series 8 comes with a 41 millimeter sports band, which is designed for small to medium wrists and available in four colorways, and an aluminum case. The 41 millimeter with cellular functionality is also on sale for Black Friday. This version is a bit more expensive, but allows you to make calls, send texts and stream music. Also worth keeping in mind: The 45 millimeter size, which has the same features and fits medium to large wrists, is also on sale for Cyber Monday.
