'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

The best Apple Watch deals in June help you track your health instead of your budget. Check out the best sales, including $70 off the newest Series 8.
Written by Christina Darby, Associate Editor

The best Apple watches are helpful accessories for your time-telling, health, and even sleep tracking needs, but they can be pretty pricey. Luckily, as the Apple Watch line continues to expand, prices drop and deals are easier to find. 

Whether you're seeking the latest in the Apple Watch line or something more budget-friendly, you can find a great deal on a smartwatch that can offer multi-day battery life, music streaming, phone calls from your wrist, and thanks to updates to the new WatchOS, even more health and fitness features.

How did we choose these Apple Watch deals?

We've scoured the web for the best deals we can find on Apple Watch products and will continue to keep an eye on price trackers, legacy sales, and whether or not retailers including Amazon, Best Buy, and Walmart are competing amongst themselves with price drops. 

Apple Watch products do not appear on sale as often as many other smartwatches, but when they do, we will try to find the best deals available to suit different budgets -- and this may include renewed models. 

How long does the battery last on an Apple Watch?

The battery life among different versions of the Apple Watch ranges from 14-36 hours with the Apple Watch Ultra boasting the longest battery life. But you can expect to charge your Apple Watch every night as it struggles to make it a full two days.

What's the difference between Apple Watch Series models and Apple Watch SE?

The Apple Watch SE models is Apple's budget option, which lacks Always-On display some of the more extensive health monitoring features, but still tracks exercise and the second-gen SE even promises crash detection. 

Can I use my Apple Watch without my phone?

Much like what Apple did with its iPads, you can get cellular service on your Apple Watch. But, even if you don't have cellular equipped on your watch, you can still track your workouts, track time, and play music among much more.
