Amazon Prime Day is finally here, and it brings along a horde of great deals on our favorite Apple products, like the AirPods and more. If you’re looking to pick up an Apple Watch, there’s no better time than right now. Amazon is currently offering a $110 discount on the Series 3, which is the best price for one of the best smartwatches out there. It may not be the latest Apple Watch Series 4, but it’s still a fantastic wearable, and with a price tag under $200, it’s the top smartwatch deal you’ll find online right now.

It’s out of stock on Amazon but can still be ordered at the discounted price. On the fence about picking up an Apple Watch? Even without the discount, there’s a number of reasons why you’re going to want to slap one on your wrist. Apple Watches are among the best fitness trackers, so if you need some extra motivation this summer, this is the smartwatch for you. Though not specifically geared as a fitness watch, like the Fitbit Versa or Garmin Forerunner, it does come packed with some great fitness-focused features. It can track steps, calories, and even your heart rate. It also comes equipped with GPS for more accurate activity tracking while jogging, walking, or hiking. It’s also completely swim-proof, so you can take it in the pool with you without worrying about it getting destroyed.

If fitness isn’t all that important to you, the Series 3 also works as a fully functional smartwatch. A dual-core S3 processor and Watch OS 5 allow for a smoother experience than the Apple Watch Series 2 or Series 1. It can also easily pair with your iPhone, allowing you to send and receive texts and calls, as well as adjust your music directly from your wrist. Be aware that you’ll need the cellular version if you want those capabilities without having to use a Bluetooth connection. The Apple Watch Series 3 also comes with up to 18 hours of battery life, so you really only need to charge it overnight to get a full day of use out of it.

Normally priced at $279, the Series 3 38mm is down to just $169 on Amazon right now. The latest discount for the Apple Watch Series 3 was $199. That deal has available off and on since early February, but with Prime Day here, the $169 price is likely the lowest we’re going to see on this Apple smartwatch in 2019. If you’re looking for other great Apple deals right now, we’ve found some big discounts on MacBooks, iPad deals, and iPhone price cuts to help you out.

Our 5 favorite gaming laptop deals in Best Buy’s ‘3-Day Sale’
Asus ROG Zephyrus M16 placed on a desk.

Gaming laptops are typically quite expensive. To have an effective one, you've got to get good storage, a nice processor, and likely throw in above-average RAM. We've all seen the big towers of pre-built desktop computers — they're big, and that space is totally non-existent in a gaming laptop. In other words, a gaming laptop is a feat of engineering. That's why we're particularly interested in gaming laptop deals, whenever they come up. And right now they're coming up via Best Buy's 3-Day Sale, an aptly named sale that lasts for... three days. It's ending Sunday, so go check these deals out now.
HP Victus 15.6-inch Gaming Laptop — $550, was $800

The key stat/hardware line (AMD Ryzen 5 7535HS processor, 8GB RAM, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2050 graphics card, 512GB SSD storage) of the HP Victus can sound intimidating, even with 8GB of RAM. That's why we're delightfully shocked that this laptop is nearing the $500 mark after discounts. For your gaming needs, it also has an anti-glare monitor with 144Hz refresh rate. While it still won't beat using the best ethernet cables, the WiFi 6 standard will help you get your games downloaded fast. Other features gamers will enjoy are the full keyboard with numpad (traditional ASCII-based roguelikes, anyone?) to AI noise removal for clear communication with your teammates.
