Apple Watch Series 3 deal: Just $199

That's tied with the all-time-best price on what's still a fantastic smartwatch.


Although this deal isn't for the cellular version of the Apple Watch Series 3, it's still great.

If you're looking for the best deal on an iPhone, I say look to last year's models. How about the best deal on an Apple Watch? Same story.

Exhibit A: For a limited time, and while supplies last, Best Buy has the Apple Watch Series 3 38mm in silver or space gray for $199. You can also get the 42mm model for $229. Those prices are $80 off and comparable to what we saw during the last Black Friday.

See it at Best Buy

Although there are cheaper smartwatch options for iPhone owners (including the Amazfit Bip and some of Fitbit's latest), I've long felt that the Apple Watch -- warts and all -- is the single best choice. And I'm newly enamored of the Series 3's ability to capture lap-swim data.
