Deal: Apple Watch prices discounted by $100 over at Target and Best Buy
If you're looking for the lowest Apple Watch prices around, then you might want to check out Best Buy and Target's discounts on Apple's first-generation wearable.
Although some expected to see a new Apple Watch S being unveiled at Apple's press event yesterday, it looks like the company is still not ready to announce an Apple Watch successor. Instead of a new model, Apple announced yesterday a new $50 Woven Nylon band and new strap colors. Furthermore, Apple also announced that it has slashed Apple Watch Sport prices by $50.
While a $50 price cut is surely welcomed, it's unfortunate to see Apple maintaining its previous pricing for the non-Sport Apple Watch models. It's in this context Best Buy and Target can save the day as both retailers are currently offering multiple Apple Watch models at a $100 discount.
Best Buy and Target currently price the entry-level Apple Watch Sport at just $250, or $50 lower than what Apple is currently asking for the same model. Moving up the price range, however, other models are $100 cheaper at the two retailers.
The 38mm and 42mm versions of the standard Apple Watch with stainless steel bodies and fluoroelastomer plastic bands in either black, white, or red, are priced at $450/$500, down from the $550/$600 Apple Store price.
The stainless steel Apple Watch with Milanese Loop will set you back $550 in the 38mm flavour and $600 for the 42mm one. Again, those prices are $100 lower than what Apple is asking for the same watches.
