If you don’t want to drop $400-$500 on a new Series 5 Apple Watch, the $199 Apple is an excellent option at a great price. But if you buy one today you can get it even cheaper. Amazon is selling the 38mm Series 3 Apple Watch for just $169, the lowest price we’ve ever seen.
The Series 3 Apple Watch doesn’t have all of the newer features in the Series 5 watch like an always-on display or cellular connectivity, but you’re still getting one of the best smartwatches you can buy. It’s loaded with sensors including a heart-rate monitor and accelerometer for tracking fitness, GPS for precise location, Apple Pay, and 50 meters of water resistance so you can take it swimming. And of course, you get access to thousands of apps, dozens of watch faces, and Apple’s full catalog of bands.
If you’re worried that the size will be too small, don’t be. Apple is one of the few companies to offer two watch sizes, but the smaller 38mm one should be perfect for all but very large wrists. And now that the Apple Watch will track sleep in watchOS 7, it’s a great second watch, too.
