Now that we can be (pretty much) certain that the Apple Watch Series 7 will not add anything significant on the health monitoring front compared to its predecessor, you might be wondering why you shouldn't just pick up last year's very well-reviewed Series 6.
It's even harder to resist that temptation when seeing the incredibly popular timepiece deeply discounted once every few weeks or so these days, but if you really want to keep your pre-holiday spending to a minimum, it's probably not a bad idea to consider an older member of the family as well.

As such, this bad boy can be a pretty smart buy at $249.99 and up in refurbished condition with a 90-day warranty included. While that price is obviously good for a GPS-only variant in a 40mm size, you just have to pay $20 or $40 more for an LTE-enabled unit with a 40 or 44mm case.

Last but certainly not least, the Apple Watch Series 3 is an absolute bargain (with the same 90-day Woot warranty included), starting as low as $104.99 while impressively being able to monitor your heart rate, sleep, and a number of different types of workouts.
