Best Buy is slashing as much as $100 off the price of the Apple Watch Series 3

The Series 3 remains a powerful device, and this is a powerful deal.

If you’ve spent the last few days watching for a good deal on an Apple Watch to help with your New Year’s resolutions, I’ve got good news: The wait is over. Best Buy is currently selling the Apple Watch Series 3 for as little as $229. It’s the best price we’ve seen for this device this month, and it’s much better than the prices at other retailers.

The discounts range from $50 to $100 and apply to both GPS-only models and units with GPS and cellular connectivity. You can pick up the 42mm cellular model for just $309, down from the usual price of $409.

This is an excellent opportunity if you don’t feel like plunking out the cash for an Apple Watch Series 4. You’ll miss out on features like the Series 4’s built-in ECG and much larger display, but all in all the Series 3 performs most tasks just as well. (To be fair, the Series 4 performs them faster.) I personally chose to keep my Series 3 rather than upgrade to the Series 4, and so far I haven’t regretted that decision.

This is an especially cool sale as the discounts apply to three pages of different models, which means you’re almost certain to get the combination of color, band, and body you want. Act soon, though, as I can’t imagine supplies will last at these prices for much longer.
