Father's Day is now behind us, and Prime Day is still in the future -- but you can get good deals on many Apple Watch models right now. Apple Watch Series 3 or Series 4 models are still widely available at $50 to $80 off. Yes, we'll almost certainly see an Apple Watch Series 5 this fall, but these discounts -- especially on the Series 3 models -- are tempting if you're buying a graduation or back to school gift, or if you just don't want to wait. And, these models will get even better in the fall, when the newly announced features of WatchOS 6 will arrive as a free upgrade.

These discounts are widely available at Walmart, Amazon and other retailers. 

Note CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of the products featured on this page.

The previous-generation Apple Watch lacks the electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG) feature of the Series 4, but it it has great heart health features that don't require the EKG. A Series 3 watch can both alert its user if it detects abnormally high or low heart rates during a period of inactivity, which can help catch some serious medical conditions such as AFib. The Series 3 also has a similarly sleek design and a number the same specs as the Series 4 and can be had for less. For more, read CNET's in-depth comparison of the Series 3 vs. Series 4.

You'll find the same discounts on Amazon  for the Apple Watch Series 3 GPS-only models, but the 38mm model is available in the black or white sport band only.


The 42mm Series 3 is also on sale at Amazon.


Cellular connectivity adds $100 to the cost of the watch (plus an extra charge to your monthly phone bill), but it lets you leave your phone behind and still stay connected.

The same 38mm, GPS+Cellular Series 3 watch is also $80 off at Amazon.


The larger size with cellular connectivity is also still discounted at Walmart.

Amazon also has the Apple Watch Series 4 at discount and with a wide variety of color choices.

The Series 4 is a bit sleeker and faster than the Series 3 and can notify you of high or irregular heart rhythms that could signal potentially life-threatening conditions like atrial fibrillation. It also has a built-in electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG) feature and will alert your emergency contacts if you take a bad fall.
