It’s time to check out the best Apple Watch deals for April 2019

The idea of an iPhone on your wrist is something a lot of folks are ready to get behind. Especially after the initial success of the Series 1 and continued success of the Apple Watch Series 3 and Series 4. If you find yourself in the market for some Apple tech to slap on your wrist, the options can get pretty pricey. Which is why a solid Apple Watch deal can really help you afford one of these great wearables.

The Apple Watch has surged to prominence in recent years owing to its great design, excellent software, and sleek aesthetics. In fact, the Apple Watch now commands the largest share of the smartwatch market, nudging out the venerable Fitbit as the biggest name in the game. With the Apple Watch Series 4, Series 3, Series 2, and Series 1 all available on the open market, it’s no surprise sellers everywhere are competing for the lowest discount.

As much as we love Fitbit, it’s hard to deny the appeal of the iOS Watch. So whether you just gotta have all things Apple or you’re just in the market for a great discount on a smartwatch to connect to your phone, we’ve rounded up the best online Apple Watch deals available right now in this all-in-one, up-to-date April 2019 list:

Today’s Best Apple Watch Deals

Apple Watch Series 1

best apple watch deals

Although it doesn’t feature all of the enhancements of later models, the Apple Watch Series 1 is still a solid watch with a lot of wireless functionality. Somewhat confusingly, the Apple Watch Series 1 is actually the second-generation refresh of the 2015 original Apple Watch, meaning it’s technically the second iteration in the series. It’s almost identical to the original except that it boasts the newer S1P chip under the hood, making it roughly 50 percent faster than the older S1. This cheaper Apple Watch may not be the newest model, but it still pairs very nicely with that Space Grey iPhone or iPhone X and has a pretty decent battery life for a WatchOS device.

Like all Apple Watch models, the Series 1 runs on the intuitive WatchOS firmware (an iOS derivative purpose-built for the smaller Retina touch display), comes with a 38mm or 42mm aluminum case, and is compatible with a myriad of different wrist straps for sale — such as the black sport band, white sport band, and gold aluminum strap. There are also customizable watch faces, a stainless steel case for protection, apps, and a ton of Apple Watch bands to choose from. It’s Wi-Fi and Bluetooth capable for easy syncing to your other iOS devices, and features 8GB of onboard storage and 512MB of RAM.

Pricing for the Series 1 starts at the price of $249, with free shipping from Apple, which is pretty reasonable for Apple hardware — much like the MacBook Air. We’re all about saving money, however, so you can score one for fairly cheap with a discount on the most affordable option in the Apple Watch Series:

Apple Watch Series 2

Apple Watch Sale

The Apple Watch series received an update in 2016 when the Series 1 and Series 2 were launched alongside each other, with the Series 2 boasting a few refinements and upgrades over its sibling. Most notably, this Apple Watch edition adds built-in GPS functionality (great for everything from activity tracking to navigation) and two new case options – stainless steel or ceramic, with the steel case featuring a sapphire crystal face. Though the GPS is a helpful tool, the Apple Watch Series 2 also comes with a decent battery life, and an overall upgraded system.

The OLED screen display on the Series 2 is also twice as bright as that on the Series 1 watch, and the case is waterproof up to 50 meters, making it a better option for certain outdoor and fitness-tracking activities than the water-resistant (but not waterproof) Series 1 watch. There are also a wide variety of leather band and sport band options on the markets if you don’t like the classic strap. On the inside, the Apple Watch Series 2 runs on an S2 computer chip, a dual-core processor with snappy performance similar to the S1P. With an excellent screen, within a Space Gray aluminum case, you can browse apps and navigate messages effortlessly.

The Series 2 is a great “middle option” between the entry-level Series 1 and high-end Series 3, especially if you want a GPS tracker and brighter display, so if you’ve got an Apple discount on your mind then be sure to take advantage of what these third-party  sellers like Amazon have to offer:

Apple Watch Series 3

Cheap Apple Watch Series 1

The most up-to-date version of the iOS watch is the Apple Watch Series 3, which just so happens to pair very nicely with the iPhone X. Released in 2017 by Apple, the third-generation Apple Watch 3 utilizes the new S3 chip, which is 70 percent faster than the S2 and S1P found in the second-gen models. The Apple Watch Series 3 GPS system works great, and it also features a built-in barometric altimeter that adds to the already extensive suite of Apple Watch activity-tracking functions, and is supported by great battery life — similar to the iPhone. With a heart rate monitor, and a whole host of different app options, this watch also doubles as an excellent fitness-tracking device — comparable to any Fitbit wearable.

Along with the many different case, band. and strap options, the Series 3 is available in two models: the standard watch version, and one which is capable of cellular LTE connectivity. This effectively lets you turn your smartwatch into a full-on mini smartphone or iPhone, allowing you to send and receive calls and texts right from your wrist with no connected iPhone required. The cellular watch model comes with a boosted 16GB of storage as well. Not to mention there’s a whole host of Apple Watch Sport bands from Nike, stylish straps, and accessories out there that you won’t find at any Apple Store like the Fog Sport Band, Pink Sand Sport Band, Sport Loop band, and more.

The Series 3 starts at the price of $329 for the non-LTE model and at the price of $399 for the LTE-equipped cellular version. They come in Space Gray, Rose Gold, and White, but often times the cheap options only come in one color. If you want the ultimate iOS smartwatch, then the best-looking Series 3 is the one to get. Take a look at all of the wireless Apple Watch deals and discounts Amazon, Apple, and the rest of the internet has to offer:

The newest Apple Watch in the Apple Watch Series is available for purchase, and the internet is still buzzing about the latest tech. Plenty of information about the Apple Watch Series 4 has already been found by our Apple enthusiast editors, but here’s a quick run-down to get you up to speed:

The all-new Apple Watch runs on WatchOS 5, which includes improved health-tracking options, a walkie-talkie feature, and a podcast app. The 42 mm smartwatch and 40 mm Apple Watch Series 4 features a higher screen resolution, and runs on an upgraded Apple S4 processor. The Apple Watch 4 is available for purchase now from Apple, so if you see a Series 4 in your future — with a pretty Gold Aluminum Case or Silver Aluminum Case — these sales make it a solid time to buy.
