If you're going to buy the Apple Watch Series 9 anyway, you better save your money
Apple Watch Series 9 was just revealed this week, and now is your first chance to save some real money. Now, thanks to Amazon, you can get the Apple Watch Series 9 GPS 41mm with Sport Fabric Band for $390. This is the only style included in the savings program, but we'll likely see more coming here soon as well. While that's only $9 off the regular price of $399, it's a real chance to save. The only other real promotion is the 3% you get back on the Apple Card, which will only save you $12—and you can still get extra cash back from any credit card you have, besides saving money. So if you're going to buy an Apple Watch anyway, now's your chance to save.
The Apple Watch Series 9, based on the new S9 chip, has essentially the same design as previous models, just with some tweaks improvements. It will still provide the same fitness tracking capabilities as before, but now features a 3,000 nit brightness screen that can be fully dimmed down to 1 nit. There's a new pinch detection feature for one-handed interaction with the wearable, as well as Apple's first carbon-neutral version.

Each features a rugged design with a unique textured pattern on the back for added grip, plus a raised lip around the screen and camera assembly to keep both protected. But the real star of the show is the support for the brand's proprietary smartphone lenses thanks to the plug-in mounts. Add MagSafe support and you've got one of the best phones on the market designed for photography.
