Deal: Apple Watch Series 3 gets a major $80 discount on Amazon
Although not the latest smartwatch launched by Apple, the third-generation Watch Series is still a decent gadget by today's standards. Another advantage of the Apple Watch Series 3 is that it's much cheaper than the newest model, especially when it's on sale.

There are many Apples Watch Series 3 models that are still available for purchase, but the cheapest one costs about $280 upfront. However, Amazon now offers this specific model for $80 less, so you'll save around 30% if you buy it during the promotion.

This isn't the cellular version, but the smartwatch does come with built-in GPS. Also, the Apple Watch Series 3 includes an optical heart sensor, accelerometer, and gyroscope. It's also swim-proof and has a small battery that should offer up to 18 hours of battery life. While it's true that you might be forced to charge the smartwatch almost every day, at least it will charge quite fast due to the small battery.

Keep in mind that Amazon has the Apple Watch Series 3 42mm on sale as well, but that one it's a bit more expensive, although the retailer offers the same 30% discount.
