Alongside the pre-paid iPhone 14 deals, Apple Watch Series 8 models are now beginning to ship out today, and now Amazon is rolling out the very first chance to save some cash for those who didn’t lock-in a pre-order. Only applying to one of the more specific configurations in the lineup, the 41mm GPS + Cellular Stainless Steel model is sitting at $659. You’d more regularly pay $699, with today’s offer marking the only chance so far to save on Apple’s just-released wearable at $40 off.
Apple Watch Series 8 arrives as the brand’s next-generation wearable that steps up to deliver Apple’s most comprehensive fitness tracking experience yet.

Apple’s Magic Trackpad 2 returns to all-time low
Joining the Magic Mac accessories we saw go on sale earlier in the week, Woot is now offering the Apple Magic Trackpad 2 for $85. Normally fetching $129, today’s offer delivers a match of the all-time low set once before over a month ago at $44 off. This is matching our previous mention and is $5 under any discount we’ve seen throughout this year prior.
Whether you’re looking to fully convert a MacBook into more of a desktop machine without giving up Apple’s best-in-class trackpad or just need to upgrade from the Magic Mouse that came with your M1 iMac, today’s discount is about as rare of an opportunity as you’ll find. Alongside all of the multi-touch features built into macOS, this features an edge-to-edge glass surface and Force Touch support for navigating your Mac or iPad. It recharges over Lightning, and includes a woven USB-C cable in the box.
