Apple has discontinued Apple Watch Series 2

Apple has discontinued the Apple Watch Series 2 and you can no longer buy it.

It is replaced by the new Apple Watch Series 3 that is offered in two versions, a pricier one with cellular connectivity and a cheaper one without it, plus the Apple Watch Series 1 remains available as the most affordable option.

Here are the prices for the models that are currently available:

  • Series 3 Sport 38mm GPS | Cellular: $330 | $400
  • Series 3 Sport 42mm GPS | Cellular: $360 | $430
  • Series 1 Sport 42mm: $280
  • Series 1 Sport 38mm: $250

Notice that the Cellular option retails for $70 more than the GPS-only version of the Apple Watch Series 3.

The Apple Watch Series 1 prices is now set at $250 for the 38mm size and $280 for the 42mm version.

Which one of these do you think is the best value for the money?
