If you're planning to upgrade your smartwatch ahead of your spring runs or hikes, Apple's latest smartwatches are now on sale at Amazon's spring sale. In particular, the new Watch Series 9 has seen one variant fall to its new lowest price at $319 from $399, which is the best we've seen to date.

The deal applies to the GPS-only Watch Series 9, arriving in a 41 mm silver aluminum case matched with a blue sport band that fits small to medium wrists. Other finishes are discounted at $329, which is still just shy from the record low. Regardless of the color you pick, bear in mind that you can swap the wrist straps anytime you like.

Apple Watch Series 9 offers plenty of upgrades underneath the hood

Apple didn't change the Watch Series 9 (review) much from the Watch Series 8 or Watch Series 7 in terms of its exterior, and for good reason considering how Apple's watches design has become iconic.

However, the biggest changes are found internally and in terms of usability. The Watch Series 9 features a new Apple S9 SiP (System-in-Package) chipset. This enables the new Double Tap feature that utilizes finger gestures when performing main actions on the watch.

At the same time, the chipset supports offline Siri voice commands and processes while also improving the accuracy of the assistant and overall health and fitness tracking features.

While unchanged on the outside, the Watch Series 9 has a very bright display that beats the Android smartwatch competition. The brightness peaks at 2,000 nits, which is very useful when outdoors, especially in sunny weather. Even better yet, this makes it a rather functional flashlight.

Despite the speedy processor and brighter panel, you can also expect the same battery life on the Watch Series 9 compared to the previous model. Apple rated it at 18 hours in smartwatch mode, but you can further extend that if you apply battery saving measures such as low power mode.

I still remember how amazed I was when I first got hold of the Nokia 3210 back when I was a kid, and it was during that time I developed my love for technology, particularly for mobile phones. I started sharing my knowledge through writing in different blogs and forums back in Nokia Nseries era. I even make videos before where I put different phones side-by-side. Today, I'm still an avid enthusiast of smartphones, but my interests have evolved into smart devices and electric vehicles.
