Apple Watch Series 1

Apple Watch Series 1

The Apple Watch series 1 has everything most users need from a smartwatch, including a stylish design and the much-improved WatchOS 3.0 operating system. The watch normally retails for up to $300 but is currently discounted on Target by $70. There are a wide variety of options, depending on the face and band, which are available in a handful of colors including space gray aluminum, gold aluminum, rose gold aluminum, and silver aluminum.

A powerful and speedy dual-core processor ensures your favorite apps launch immediately and that you are always up to date and able to perform everyday tasks, such as replying to a message, instantly. The Series 1 is as fast as the Apple Watch Series 2, and faster than the original Apple Watch. The watch tracks run data when you run without a phone, and maps the route when you again have access to your phone. For swimmers, the watch provides a decent level of protection, and while it’s not exactly swim-proof, it is splash-proof.

The Series 1 is thinner and a slightly sleeker than the Series 2. The battery will last about a full day, depending on how much you use it. The watch lets you go hands-free with Siri, allowing you easily do everything from set reminders to order taxis.

Head over to Target to browse these discounted Series 1 watches.

The Apple Watch Series 2 has received positive reviews from consumers and the tech community. When we got our hands on one ,we concluded in our Apple Watch Series 2 review that it proves Apple still makes the best smartwatch, stamping this model with an 8-star rating. We were impressed with the brighter screen that’s easy to read even while outdoors, and how WatchOS 3 works even better on the Series 2.

Some of the improved features of the Series 2 validate the increase in price over the Series 1. The watch is water-resistant up to 50 meters, and also safe to take in fresh or salt water. The included Workouts app stores your GPS data as a map that can be opened in Apple’s Activity app. And with a 1,000-nit display, sunlight is simply no longer a problem.

To score an Apple Watch Series 2 without paying full price, head on over to Best Buy, where you can browse deals on 44 different designs.
