If you want to upgrade to a premium Apple fitness tracker but you don't want to spend $400 or more for the just-announced Apple Watch Series 9 or Apple Watch Ultra 2, going for a previous-gen model can help you save some cash.
While you can nab an Apple Watch Series 8 from just over $300 right now, you can spend even less if you're happy to go for an older model at Woot today. The retailer is offering the Apple Watch Series 6 from as little as $180 giving you the chance to get a recent Apple Watch model with support for upcoming WatchOS 10 software for less than half the price of the latest model.
Though a few of years old now, the Apple Watch Series 6 still boasts impressive features like an always-on display, water resistance up to 50 meters and an 18-hour battery life. The Series 6 also offers advanced health features like accurate heart rate and blood oxygen monitoring, ECG capabilities and SpO2 tracking. At today's price, it's possibly a better starter smartwatch pick than the Apple Watch SE, which strips out some of the advanced health tracking features in order to come in at a low price.
You can use the Apple Watch to track your workouts and daily activity, see your notifications, take calls on your wrist and customize your watch's look with different watch faces and bands. It runs the current WatchOS 9 software and will get the WatchOS 10 when it is released on Sept. 18, meaning you're getting a smartwatch that will be supported into the future.
Note that the Apple Watch deals on offer at Woot will have a little wear and tear, such as scratches, dents or dings. But the products are in full working condition, with batteries guaranteed to function at 85% capacity.
