If you want to upgrade your Apple Watch but don’t want to spend $400+ on the latest Apple Watch Series 8 model, you can still save on previous-gen devices if you know where to look. Today alone, for example, Woot runs a variety of Apple Watch deals with prices from just $90. With the sale, you could save a huge amount of money by going for an older model without sacrificing too much in terms of features.
Woot’s sale includes a variety of Apple Watch models released from the Apple Watch Series 3 until 2021 Apple Watch Series 7. These are older models, but they still pack a lot of powerful specs and performance for the price. Last year’s 7 series is available from $260 and offers solid improvements over previous models, including more durable construction, larger screen sizes, and fast charging capability. The 6 series you can pick up for as low as $190is a year older, but still offers 18 hours of battery life, an always-on display, water resistance up to 50 meters, and advanced health features like SpO2 tracking.
If you’re just looking for basic smartwatch features like music streaming, health metrics, wrist calling, and notifications, the Apple Watch Series 5 is still a solid choice, and you can grab one from just $170. If you want to spend as little as possible on an Apple Watch, consider the Series 3 from just $90 — but be aware that this model is now several years old and does not support the latest WatchOS 9 software update. As a starter smartwatch, it can give you a feel for Apple’s wearable ecosystem without spending more than necessary, although it’s probably worth it. shell out the extra $30 to get the new 4 series if you can.
All Apple Watch models available at this sale have been classified as “Scratch and Dent” quality refurbished. This means that although they have been tested and confirmed to be in perfect working order, they will have noticeable cosmetic imperfections, according to Woot Refurbishment Rankings and Criteria.
