The Apple Watch Series 5 is finally here, and it’s the latest and greatest Apple Watch model. That said, the new device represents only minor improvements over the Apple Watch Series 4—and as such if you’re in the market for an Apple Watch, you may be better off saving some cash and going for last year’s model. Thankfully, there are some good deals right now for the Apple Watch Series 4.
The Apple Watch Series 4 has been cut by $50 on Amazon—meaning that you now can get it for as little as $349. That’s actually a pretty great price, especially considering what the Apple Watch is capable of doing.
There are plenty of reasons why you might want an Apple Watch Series 4. For starters, the device is excellent at fitness tracking—you’ll be able to use it to monitor workouts, steps you take during the day, and more. There’s even an ECG monitor built into the watch, and it can detect if you might be at risk for Atrial Fibrillation. All that information is saved on your iPhone in the Health app and Activity app, so you can track your health over time.
The Apple Watch Series 4 is also very well-designed. Unlike previous versions of the Apple Watch, the device offers an edge-to-edge display with nice, rounded corners—so the screen pretty much fits the face of the device. On the right, there’s the Apple Watch Digital Crown and a button to control the software, while on the back you’ll find the heart rate monitor. The device is available in a few different colors, too—the base model comes in a Space Gray Aluminum, Gold Aluminum, or Silver Aluminum, and there are different band options. Finally, it’s available in two sizes—40mm and 44mm, depending on how big your wrists are and how large you like a watch to be.
Of course, you might want an Apple Watch with cellular connectivity, and there are other good deals on Apple Watch models with cellular service. The entry-level Apple Watch Series 4 with cellular is discounted by an $69, bringing the total price down to $429.99. Apart from cellular connectivity, the device still offers the same great design as the non-cellular model, as well as the stellar fitness tracking and other features.
