If you were looking for a new smartwatch packed with features at an affordable price, the Apple Watch Series 3 is the one for you — but only if you act fast. As part of Amazon’s Prime Day sales, this smartwatch is selling for just $169 for the 38mm model and $199 for the 42mm model. But it’s crucial that you take advantage of this Prime Day deal now and make the Apple Watch Series 3 your go-to accessory of choice, because these steep discounts expire once Prime Day ends in a little less than 15 hours.

The Apple Watch Series 3 is still one of the best smartwatches on the market, even with Apple releasing the Apple Watch Series 6 recently. Like its successors, you can use the Apple Watch Series 3 to track your every move with the Activity tracker. Feel your smartwatch buzz on your wrist every time you need to stand, move, or stretch and keep your body active daily. You can even wear this Apple Watch during your daily swim and manage your calories while you’re submerged underwater. There’s also in-built GPS tracking so you can take on the longest of hikes or drive around for hours, without ever feeling lost. This smartwatch also does so much more than calorie counting and checking time. You can reply to texts, take calls, monitor your music, check your calendar, and pay for your morning coffee, all straight from your wrist.

There’s also an included feature that allows you to “ping” your iPhone when it’s lost. So if you’re like me and constantly forget where you put your phone down, this feature is a life-saver. Feel free to surf the App Store and download all the compatible apps you want to make full use of your Apple Watch. You can even use the mindfulness app already added to your smartwatch to take a breather when things around you get overwhelming. Also, it’s super easy to interchange your watch bands so if you stock up on a few different colors, you can always make sure your new smartwatch matches your outfit.

The Apple Watch Series 3 is a great, affordable companion if you’re looking for a new smartwatch and this is one of the best Apple Watch deals we’ve seen in a while. Even though the Series 3 is a slightly older version and lack the speedy processor and always-on display of its successors, you can’t go wrong with it. After all, the Apple Watch Series 3 can be your workout trainer, GPS tracker, and even act as your iPhone if need be. What more do you need? Get the Apple Watch Series 3 now for only $169 as part of Amazon’s Prime Day deals, before you miss your chance.

It's no longer the latest model with the release of the Apple Watch Series 9, but that makes the Apple Watch Series 8 a prime target when searching for Apple Watch deals. Here's an offer that you may want to shop -- the 41mm, GPS model of the Apple Watch Series 8 for just $310 from Amazon, following a 22% discount that results in savings of $89 on the wearable device's original price of $399. You're going to have to hurry if you want to take advantage of this bargain though, as we're not sure if stocks will be enough to meet what we expect to be high demand.

Why you should buy the Apple Watch Series 8
