The best cheap Apple Watch deals

Simply put, the Apple Watch is one of the best smartwatches currently available and practically the default choice for any iPhone users looking for a wearable.

The Apple Watch Series 5 has now been revealed bringing with it optional titanium and ceramic finishes, and an always-on display. What the new model means is that there will be no shortage of deals on older Apple Watch models as retailers look to clear stock.

Following the Series 5 reveal, Apple announced the Apple Watch Series 3 would get a price drop. It now starts at $199 for the 38mm GPS model, and $299 for the 38mm GPS and Cellular model.

The truth is, the Series 3 has often been sold for as low as $199 before now, and you can get a GPS + Cellular model for as low as $229 (see our deals below).

Discounts on both the Series 3 and 4 will carry on appearing, as they have done all year, so you don't need to wait for a big sales event like Black Friday or Prime Day to bag a cheap Apple Watch.

Best Apple Watch Series 3 deals

The best Apple Watch deals for July

With the launch of the Apple Watch Series 5, Apple announced the Series 3 will remain on sale and get an official price drop to $199. That's incredible value for what is still an excellent smartwatch.

There's a massive saving on the Cellular model currently from Amazon. You normally pay a $100 premium over the regular GPS model for the always-on LTE connection, so this is a fantastic price if you want the cellular connection.

At that lower price point, the Series 3 is a really attractive option. We've compared the two models, in case you're on the fence, but the older device is no slouch at all. The elegant design and app ecosystem make it a sure thing at these prices.

In our updated review of the Apple Watch Series 3 the smartwatch still impressed us enough to earn 4 stars. For Apple users, especially iPhone owners, this is a really great smartwatch for less than $230.

Best Apple Watch Series 4 deals

The Apple Watch Series 4 is still a relatively new device, after releasing late last year. But with the advent of the Series 5, it's making way. That means there are now some big savings to be had.

Right now, Walmart has some big discounts on the Series 4, taking upwards of $100 off the usual price.

If you're after added Cellular capabilities, Walmart is taking off $100 from both sizes.

Series 4 of the Apple Watch was really the first time that Apple substantially changed the design of its smartwatch line. Reducing the size of the watch's bezels, and introducing different sizes, including 40mm and 44mm, it's safe to say that the new look is a sleek and elegant revision.

There were some nice internal updates, too, most prominently in the form of an ECG that can let you know any time your heart rate falls or rises to irregular levels. The haptic feedback also got an upgrade, and the cherry on top was a faster processor to keep it all ticking right.

All of those factors, and a few more besides, led us to name the Series 4 both the 2018 Wearable and Smartwatch of the Year at the Wareable awards.

The Series 4 wowed us in our review, soaring to a score of 4.5 out 5. As is often the case with Apple devices, this was down to battery life and pricing — all the more reason to take advantage of any discounts knocking around.

All of the above prices were correct at time of publication but are always subject to change at a moment's notice. If you spot a bargain that you want, you won't want to wait around too long.
