Wareable deals: Bag an Apple Watch Series 3 with 20% off through Nike's sale

Save over $80 on the latest sporty smartwatch model

If you're in the market for an Apple Watch Series 3, Nike is currently offering a significant saving on the company's latest smartwatch.

Running until 4 August, the apparel giant is offering its own Nike+ models of the Apple smartwatch with a price cut of 20%, meaning you can save a total of over $80. The deal includes both 38mm and 42mm variations of the sporty Apple Watch, which all feature GPS and cellular connectivity as standard.

All you need to do to get on board with the discount is enter the promotional code 'HOT20' at the checkout, which in turn will see a satisfying chunk knocked off your cart total. So instead of the 42mm Series model setting you back $429, for example, the sale reduces this to $343.20. And if you want the smaller, 38mm device, a similar discount is available - adding the promo code will cut it from $399 to $319.20.

You can take advantage of a number of different versions of the smartwatch through the Nike store, with the perforated, sport strap also available alongside the knitted sport loop.

And if the included band isn't to your taste, or you just fancy having a backup, the deal also means that you can save roughly $10 on an additional straps. And that's not to be sniffed at, considering they usually retail at a pricey $49.

If you're not clear on the differences between Nike+ models and their regular Apple Watch Series 3 counterparts, allow us to clear up any confusion. You're not getting a wildly different experience either way, with the Nike+ editions simply offering users the chance at getting a sportier strap out the box, as well as some exclusive, Nike-centric watch faces and deeper integration within Nike+ Run Club. All the same specs are on board, and it can very easily masquerade as a normal device with the addition of a regular Apple Watch strap.


So, what's the catch? Well, there isn't one, really, from what we can tell. Obviously you'll have to act fast in order to grab this particular deal, but it's also important to be aware that the Apple Watch Series 4 is almost certainly set to launch next month.

If you're all about having the latest gadget, you might want to wait it out until then. But for those who want to grab a rare saving on the current top-end Apple Watch model, you probably won't find a better price snip than this until it hits the discount during Black Friday and Christmas sales.
