'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.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.


Apple Watch Series 7 Product Red deal: Save $160 during Black Friday

While the new Series 8 may be available for purchase, you shouldn't disregard its older sibling. You'll still get great features – and save 30%.
Written by Rebecca Isaacs, Staff Writer

Apple may have recently announced the new Apple Watch Series 8, but that doesn't mean you should opt to pay full price for a new wearable. Right now, if you decide that its predecessor, the Apple Watch Series 7, you can save $160. Instead of paying full price, you can get one for as little as $369.

If you're in the Apple ecosystem, the Apple Watch Series 7 is a great smartwatch that will give you a ton of health-focused features. The Always-on Retina display features 20% more screen area than the Watch Series 6 so you can see, tap, and text with ease. You will be able to check your blood oxygen levels at any time along with an ECG.

In addition to your biometrics, you can check your heart rate, noting any highs and lows, and even get life-saving heart rhythm notifications. Because it's a fitness wearable, you can also expect a swimproof design and IP6X dust resistance.

With the all-day battery life and faster charging, you can use that extra power to track your newly added tai chi, pilates, running, and yoga workouts. Or, you can use the Mindfulness app or check your sleep in the Sleep app.

If you forget your phone, you can still remain connected to your friends and family through calls, texts, and email. Plus, you can stream podcasts, audiobooks, and music without your iPhone. If this Watch sounds like a great addition to your fitness routine, we recommend adding it to your cart today to get that $549 price tag. Some colors already have sold out, and we expect the rest of them to follow by the end of the day.
