While the Apple Watch Series 9 is a clear-cut choice for many users over the cheaper Watch SE, its premium cost is exorbitant for some. But if that has been stopping you from buying the smartwatch before, then there's great news for you. Amazon now has the latest Apple Watch back to one of its best prices at $359 from the regular price of $429.

With this, you'll be saving $70 (16 percent) for the 45 mm variant of the GPS model. The deal also applies to other color options of the Watch Series 9 including the popular Silver and Midnight in addition to the Starlight and Pink finishes.

Why you should buy or upgrade to the Apple Watch Series 9

The Apple Watch Series 9 (review) specifically retained the design and build of the Watch Series 8 and previous models, but there are worthy internal upgrades and new features to consider. Mainly, the new Apple S9 chip that powers the Watch Series 9 and Watch Ultra 2 (review) added notable features like support for offline Siri commands and the Double Tap gesture. The latter allows you to control your smartwatch through pinching your index finger and thumb.

Aside from the usual additions, the new processor also enables faster performance with watchOS 10 overall and improved battery life. For instance, even with the brighter touch display, the Watch Series 9 keeps the same battery life as the previous model. This can be extended further if you tap on the different Apple Watch battery life-saving measures that we featured.

Another big advantage of Apple's Watch is with reliable and extensive health and tracking capabilities, which is true for the Watch Series 9. You get continuous heart rate monitoring with irregular notifications as well as on-demand ECG with Afib. The watch can also automatically detect and start workout routines and support a wide range of exercise types. There are life-saving features, too, including crash and fall detection.

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.
