If you want an Apple Watch but don’t want to spend a mountain of cash, then you should head over to Amazon and pick up one of the 38mm Apple Watch Series 3 models with GPS that it’s selling for a mere $199, down $80 from the normal price of $279. That’s a match of the lowest price we’ve ever seen on Amazon, and it’s been about a month since it was listed at that price. You can also get the 42mm model for an $80 discount.
I don’t think you’ll be missing out on much if you buy the Series 3 instead of the Series 4. I personally still use a Series 3, and I find it’s fast and capable, although I do sometimes envy cosmetic features such as the Series 4’s slightly larger display and its custom watch faces. You also won’t have access to some of the cooler health features of the Series 3, such as the built-in ECG and the fall detection sensor.
But if you do want a Series 4, Amazon is currently offering as much as $50 off for the GPS+cellular model, although the steepest discount is only for this ultra-specific 44mm gold model with a gold Milanese loop. If that sounds like it’s still going to be expensive, it is. Even with the discount, you’ll still be paying $799.
Fortunately, there are other discounted models available for much lower prices, such as this space gray GPS model with a black sport band that’s selling for $484.
