Looking for an inexpensive Apple Watch? Look no further than the Apple Watch Series 3, which is down to just $170 right now at Amazon. That’s a savings of $30 on the usual price, working out to 15% off. It might not be the latest Apple Watch anymore but the Apple Watch Series 3 is an ideal budget smartwatch for those keen to get fitter over the coming months. Be quick though — stock on any Apple Watch deals tends to be fairly limited. If you’re keen to spend a little more, we also have plenty of other great Apple Watch deals for you to look over.
The Apple Watch Series 3 has been available for just over three years now. Back in 2017, we described it as a joy to use in our Apple Watch Series 3 review and you know what? That still stands. While it’s no longer the best smartwatch you can buy, it’s still highly respectable and a very tempting proposition at such a great price.
The Apple Watch Series 3 offers all the basics you need from a smartwatch. It has GPS built-in so it can track all your movements and where you’re walking or running each day. It’s swim-proof, too, so you can take it in the pool or keep wearing it in the shower. It has a stylish Retina display that continues to look great in any situation. There’s also an optical heart sensor so it’s possible to monitor your heart rate from the device, plus an emergency SOS feature that can potentially get you out of a jam. It’s at its best when monitoring all your workouts and exercise routines, never missing a beat and keeping an eye on exactly how well you’re performing.
Alongside all that are the usual features you’d expect from an Apple Watch, such as the ability to store music, podcasts, and audiobooks, receive notifications straight to your wrist, and the option to take calls as well. Impressively, it also sports the same battery life as the Apple Watch SE, as we found when we compared the Apple Watch SE vs. Apple Watch Series 3.
Simply put, the Apple Watch Series 3 is still a great smartwatch and it’s even more tempting when it’s $30 off as it is right now. Ordinarily priced at $200, you can grab one for $170 at Amazon for a limited time only. That price cut makes it a hugely tempting budget smartwatch. If you’re keen to track all your daily activities as well as not have to look at your phone so often, this is the device for you.
