Does anyone who doesn’t own an Apple Watch always feel a tiny bit inferior to people who have one on their wrist? Just me? Okay. I mean, it’s not that I need to be able to check my heart rate and my texts at all times, but I kinda get jealous that I don’t at least have the option. Now might be my best chanceÂ to buy one and join this elite group of techies, because the Apple Watch Series 3 just dropped to its lowest price ever on Amazon.Â
You can currently get the Series 3 for just $200, which is $80 less than what it normally retails for, and the lowest price we’ve ever seen. I should mention that the model that’s actually on sale is the 38mm version,Â so if you wanted the larger watch face, you won’t see the same discounts.
The Series 3 has a ton of nifty features, so I’ll only spout off a few. First of all, it’s completelyÂ waterproof, so you can hit the beach or take a shower without worrying about anything happening to it. It also gives you easyÂ access to your messages and emails so you can send a quick text without pulling out your phone. For the fitness enthusiasts among us, it’s also a great tool to track your efforts andÂ sync your headphones andÂ listen to music without lugging your phone around while exercising. Besides those basics, you’ll also have the ability to track yourÂ steps,Â sleep habits, and heart rate, and have access to plenty of other apps that you’d normally need your phone to use.
Though theÂ Series 4 is technically our favorite smart watch that we’ve ever tested, the Series 3 is just one step below it in terms ofÂ processing speed, display area, and other impressive specs. Not to mention the fact that the newer modelÂ will cost you quite a bit more, so the Series 3 has quite the edge, financially speaking of course.
