Apple still sells the Apple Watch Series 3, and while it has had issues for some lately when updating to new software versions, the 2017 smartwatch still does the job of providing basic notifications and health tracking on your wrist.
The latest Apple Watch is on sale with a $120 discount at Best Buy and Amazon on the 40mm Product Red model, and up to $70 off on other models. In addition to an always-on display and ECG, the Series 6 monitors blood-oxygen levels (though you shouldn't expect medical-grade results there).
