Apple Watch

Score an Apple Watch with a stainless steel case and black classic buckle for $70 off today only on Amazon. The Apple Watch allows you to go hands-free by providing notifications about activities on your iPhone. Once someone contacts you or an app sends you a notification, the watch will gently tap you and light up with the notification. This means you don’t have to have your phone in your hand 24/7, and you can go on with your day-to-day activities without missing a beat.

More than just a notification center, the Apple Watch also acts as a fitness tracker, measuring your steps and helping to encourage healthy behavior throughout the day. To make sure it blends with your personal style, you can switch bands and change watch faces, anytime you want.

The smart watch features a 1.5-inch AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with 340 x 272-pixel resolution, and is covered by sapphire crystal glass. The watch runs WatchOS 2, has an Apple S1 chipset, a 520 MHz processor, and contains 8 GB of memory. Featuring an accelerometer, gyroscope, and ambient light sensor, the watch has an 18-hour battery life, enough for three hours of talk time, and charges up to 80 percent in just 90 minutes. 

The Apple Watch normally retails for $350, but today only, you can get one on Amazon for just $280, saving you $70 (20 percent).
