Walmart pre-Black Friday deals: iPad Air and Apple Watch SE drop to record prices

Walmart previously announced that its first set of Black Friday Deals would arrive on November 7, but it’s already jumped the gun with a number of eye-catching pre-event offerings. There are some great deals here, including the cheapest prices yet for an iPad Air and Apple Watch SE.

Let’s start with the iPad Air which is now down to $349 (was $469) at Walmart (opens in a new tab). This deal is for the previous 4th Gen model which was originally released in 2020, but it’s still a powerful tablet by today’s standards. And today’s offer is particularly strong because it’s the lowest price we’ve ever seen.

The iPad Air (4th generation) comes with a crisp 10.9-inch Liquid Retina display, 64GB of storage, and Apple’s powerful A14 Bionic chip that delivers excellent performance for general day-to-day tasks, gaming, and more advanced creative work such as photo and video editing.

And then there is the Apple Watch SE for $199 (was $309) (opens in a new tab). Again, this deal is for a last-gen model, but that means you can get a massive $110 off the regular price. This matches the lowest price we’ve seen for the smartwatch.

Yet the Apple Watch SE is a bargain when you consider that it still comes with all the important health and fitness features you would need on a smartwatch as a general user. These include heart rate monitoring, sleep tracking, GPS, and cellular connectivity. It also looks a lot like the more premium Apple Watch models, but with a smaller 40mm screen.
