Even with the release of a new Apple Watch Series 4, we didn't expect the deals on Apple Watches to be this good! Target is dominating, but several retailers will have older models on sale. We've rounded up the best Black Friday Apple Watch deals for your shopping list in 2018.

Black Friday Apple Watch Deal Predictions
- Apple Watch Series 4 will be full price, but come with gift cards
- Use sitewide coupons to drop Apple Watch Series 3 to around $250
- Apple Watch Series 1 will fall to $179
- Apple Watch Nike+ Series 3 will hit $320 at Nike
The Apple Watch Series 3 models were released a year ago, but already we've seen notable discounts. During Black Friday 2017, they were offered at full price. However, they were bundled with impressive amounts of store credit or gift cards.
If you're hoping to get the new Apple Watch Series 4 over Black Friday this year, you can expect similar deals. One of the best deals we saw was an Apple Watch Series 3 at its list price of $350; it came bundled with $105 in Kohl's Cash.
Similar deals popped up throughout the holiday season, but none of them proved as great as that one. This year, we've seen Apple Watch Series 3 models in similar bundles, while also seeing the price go as low as $265 and $300 for the 38mm and 42mm sizes, respectively. Recent sitewide discounts have knocked prices on Series 3 models down, too. For Black Friday 2018, we're expecting to see the Apple Watch Series 3 at $250 — with the right coupons.
Apple Watch Series 1 models will be even more affordable. We're expecting a solid drop from the typical retail starting price of $249 to $179 for both the 38mm and 42mm units. However, there's a good chance that select Apple Watch Series 1 units could drop even further, especially now that the Series 1 has been discontinued. We've already seen an Apple Watch Series 1 Sport fall to just $149 this year.
The Apple Watch Series 2 isn't being offered on Apple's website these days, either. If we see any sales on them, they're all going to be older units. We haven't seen many deals on this model, either. The only deal we saw this year wasn't great, as it dropped the price to $285. While that's not a terrible price for an Apple Watch, the fact that you'll be able to find a Series 3 for that price or less makes any Series 2 deal feel pointless.
