How To Choose A New Apple Watch

The Apple Watch is in its fifth generation now, with the Series 5 rolling out last September. The fourth-gen 2018 Apple Watch Series 4 was quietly discontinued after the Series 5 launch, but the previous 2017 model — the Series 3 — has remained so popular that Apple wisely decided to keep it on the market. That gives prospective Apple Watch buyers two choices, and deciding between the Series 3 and the Series 5 will largely come down to budget.

As you probably surmised, the Apple Watch Series 5 is the more expensive of the two at around $400 but it comes with a fuller suite of modern features. Some of the most notable upgrades that the Series 5 boasts over previous models include an always-on OLED display, a snappy new S5 chip, a magnetometer which allows for compass functionality, and increased internal storage space. Some critics noted that the Series 5 wasn’t a huge upgrade over the Series 4, but our review team found it to be a nearly perfect smartwatch — and the Series 4 isn’t readily available any more, making the Series 5 the obvious choice if you want the latest and greatest Apple Watch.

Budget-conscious shoppers (or anybody who just wants a solid smartwatch for $200 or less) will find a ton of bang for the buck in the Apple Watch Series 3. It’s still hugely popular and Apple has kept selling it for some very good reasons: It’s sleek, it’s a joy to use, it packs a bevy of great fitness- and health-tracking functions, and it’s an incredible value. It lacks some of the bells and whistles of newer smartwatches — perhaps the most noticeable of these being the lack of an always-on display — but if the $400-plus price tag of the Series 5 is too rich for your blood, then the Series 3 gives you a lot of wearable for the money. Labor Day Apple Watch deals are also a great chance to score one for shockingly cheap.
