Although the company continues to dominate a thriving global smartwatch market, that doesn't mean you absolutely need to purchase its newest wearable products at their full retail prices. Best Buy, for instance, has the extremely well-reviewed Apple Watch Series 4 on sale at the time of this writing starting as low as $349 outright. That represents a cool $50 discount for a whole bunch of 40 mm models lacking standalone LTE connectivity, which are typically priced at $399 and up.
The same $50 markdown applies to a number of other GPS-only variants, as well as cellular-enabled timepieces fetching as little as $449 right now. The costliest Apple Watch Series 4 models on special offer at Best Buy come with 44 mm stainless steel cases, swanky Milanese Loop bands, and built-in LTE support, setting you back $799 a pop instead of their $849 list prices.
There are many other options between the $349 and $799 discounted price tags, mind you, all of which can be purchased for 50 bucks less than usual. You can also save a little more money on several cellular-capable versions (namely, $110), but you'll have to agree to an AT&T monthly installment plan to do so.
Otherwise, you could wait for Apple to restock most refurbished Apple Watch Series 4 models, which went away shortly after making their official Store debut, or check out some of Best Buy and Walmart's frequent deals on open box units and refurbs of their own if you want to maximize your savings.
