If you’re looking to buy a new Apple Watch you probably have eyes on the Series 5 that just landed. And as we noted in our review, if you buy one, you certainly won’t be disappointed. But what you might not realize is that Apple is also selling its least expensive watch ever alongside its flagship wearable. The price of the 38mm Series 3 Apple Watch was slashed to $199, half the price of the Series 5 and one of the lowest-priced smartwatches you're going to find oil either side of the aisle.

The question is, should you go all in on the top-of-the-line Apple Watch or save a bundle with the Series 3?
