When someone asks you for the time, do you whip out your smartphone and look at the clock on your home screen? Or do you glance at your wrist and check the G-Shock you’ve been sporting since college? How about putting your hand up towards the sun to determine the remaining daylight like a true camper?
Maybe it’s time for an upgrade to a smartwatch. And the good news is you can finally get an Apple Watch Series 3 for as low as $269.99.
While Apple already unveiled the Series 4 in its September 2018 keynote, it certainly didn’t make the Series 3 obsolete. Apart from an updated heart monitor and fall detection, the Series 4 isn’t drastically different. You can still get all the features you want out of the Series 3, and for a price that’s now perfectly reasonable thanks to the current price drop.
This sleek smartwatch is like a fitness buddy wrapped around your wrist. It’s capable of tracking your workouts, measuring calories burned, keeping tabs on your heart rate, and monitoring your overall health. When you feel like you’re lagging behind, it fuels your workouts by streaming Apple Music and Apple Podcasts to keep you in good spirits — and you can even go for a run without your phone and still use its GPS. Whether you’re spinning like crazy on your bike, or attempting to beat Michael Phelps’s record in swimming at the local YMCA, the Series 3 Apple Watch can keep you honest about your progress and entertained all the while.
The Series 3 earned “excellent” marks in PCMag’s review and praise for its built-in cellular connectivity, heart rate monitor, fast processor, “clear call quality,” and more. Our main gripe was price, but this deal makes it more affordable.
Available in four variants, you can now snag the Series 3 Apple Watch for far less than the retail price. You can get the 38mm in black or white for only $269.99, and the 42mm in black or white for the discounted price of $304.99.
