Now that the holiday season has come and gone, the dust has settled on the prices of Apple’s watches. The 38mm Series 3 models are selling with the most of modest of discounts at B&H Photo (that is, the GPS version) and Walmart (the cellular version). Amazon, however, has a lock on the best prices for every Series 5 model, with most selling for between $30 to $45 off Apple’s list price.
Those remarkable Series 4 deals that we saw around Black Friday now appear to be gone for good. In fact, it’s increasingly rare to see a nonrefurbished Series 4 Apple Watch anywhere at this point.
Given the dearth of Apple Watch deals, it’s worth considering a Fitbit. Amazon has trimmed $50 from the prices of the Versa 2 and the Versa 2 Special Edition, and knocked a full $60 off the Versa Lite — now on sale for $100. Those are solid prices across the board on a trio of capable smartwatches that give any model in Apple’s lineup a run for its money.
All of the best Apple Watch deals are listed below.
