Apple’s latest Watch Series 9 has dropped to its lowest price ever, just in time to help you keep up with your fitness goals this January. You can grab the 41mm Pink model with a light pink sport loop for only $309, for a savings of 23 percent ($90) off the list price. If you are looking for another color, this is it Midnight and Silver models are on sale for $329, saving you a significant 18 percent ($70) off the regular price.
The Apple Watch series 9 is a solid addition to the lineup by scoring a goal an excellent 92 in our review Thanks to new features like Raise To Speak and Double Tap. Raise to Speak lets you raise your wrist to activate Siri, with requests processed directly on the watch instead of going through another device. In other words, you can still use Siri offline or away from your phone.
Tap it twice is a more interactive feature that lets you double-tap your index finger and thumb (the ones on the same side of the watch) together to complete specific actions. You can use it to answer or end calls or respond with dictation, and other commands, meaning you’ll have to touch your watch face less.
The Apple Watch Series 9 is also strong for health and fitness – for one, it tracks your heart rate and notifies you if it detects any irregularities. It also tracks your sleep stages and general well-being through features like temperature detection. Plus, it’s waterproof, so you don’t have to worry about sweat.
As you know, there is a downside. Apple had to turn off the main new feature – the blood oxygen monitor – for a reason patent dispute with a medical company. That issue has now been resolved, though, and you probably won’t miss the feature too much – especially at these prices.
