Apple Watch Series 3 prices start at $199 after fresh $80 Best Buy discount
The two best things about the latest and greatest Apple Watch edition are undoubtedly its life-saving features and built-in cellular connectivity. But if you're willing to give up both those things in exchange for extreme affordability, Best Buy has a killer deal on the 2017-released Series 3 smartwatch with GPS-only support.

Three such variants are currently available at $199 a pop, down from a list price of $279, all of which naturally come in a small 38mm size. Their cases are all made from aluminum rather than a more premium stainless steel material, the silver flavor pairing with a white "sport" band, while the space gray paint job matches either a standard black fluoroelastomer strap or a perforated anthracite/black Nike sport band.

Even though you're not getting standalone LTE connectivity, an ECG monitor on your wrist, or that very handy fall detection functionality, your 200 bucks will be extremely well-spent here, as the GPS-only Apple Watch Series 3 still comes with a heart rate sensor, dual-core S3 processor, various advanced activity tracking features, a swimproof design, a sharp Retina OLED screen, and up to 18 hours of battery life between charges.

Besides, if you can't give up the ability to make and receive voice calls on your wrist, Best Buy also has your back by selling a number of cellular-enabled Apple Watch Series 3 models at $80 off list. The most affordable such versions are $299 at the time of this writing, unsurprisingly sporting 38mm aluminum cases combined with different sport bands. Larger variants currently set you back $329 apiece, while sleeker stainless steel models start at $499 instead of $579.
