The Apple Watch 4/Watch Series 4/new Apple Watch is expected to be unveiled at the company's 12 September event, which usually means you can start picking up older generations of the Watch for less.

US retailer Best Buy is currently offering a pretty sizeable discount on select (expensive) Watch Series 3 LTE models that'll save you $300 off the normal price. So if there's any Watch Series 2 or Series 1 owners who have been thinking about an upgrade, there's a few deals here worth looking at.

The offer does include both 38mm and 42mm models that feature built-in GPS and cellular support. That $300 off sees the price drop for some models to $449 (down from $749). If you feel like spending big on the current gen Watch, there's also deals on the pricier Apple Watch Edition, which come with ceramic as opposed to stainless steel cases. The 38mm Watch edition version has dropped to $999 from $1,299 while the 42mm ceramic Series 3 is now down to $1,049 from $1,349.

We've listed the Watch models that have dropped down to that price below:

As mentioned, there is a new Apple Watch on the way, which is expected to introduce a larger display with less bezel and more room to show off new, busier watch faces. It will also run on watchOS 5, which will be compatible on older models (Series 1, 2 and 3). So if you decide not to wait it out for the new Watch, you're still going to get yourself a smartwatch with most of the latest software features along with a swimproof design, built-in GPS, heart rate monitoring and cellular connectivity.
