To wit: For a limited time, and while supplies last, Apple is offering refurbished Apple Watch Series 3 models starting at $239. Until just a week ago, when the , that same model would have run you $329 new. (It's currently $279 new.)See it at Apple
That $239 option buys you the 38mm GPS version; the 42mm models start at $259 -- just $20 more. Currently, the store has no cellular-capable watches in stock.
Although Apple doesn't promise the exact same level of refurb goodness afforded to iPhones and iPads -- you don't get a new casing or battery -- refurbished Watches are tested and certified and come with a one-year warranty.
At these prices, I guarantee Apple's inventory won't last long. The Series 3 was the flagship model until a week ago, and viewed in a vacuum, it's still a.
Bonus deal: Here's a watch of an entirely different stripe. The LG GizmoPal 2 is for kids -- though, more accurately, it's for parents, as it allows you to keep tabs on your tyke.
It normally sells for $80 new, but for a limited time, A4C has the refurbished LG GizmoPal 2 for Verizon for $19.95 with promo code CHEAPSKATE35.See it at A4C
This big watch includes both GPS and cellular connectivity, the better to effectively locate your little (or medium) one. It's about as kid-friendly as a device like this gets.
But...couple things: It's available in pink only. It requires not only Verizon service, but also an existing Verizon account. (In other words, I don't believe you can just have the watch on a plan.) And it has decidedly mixed reviews from pros and end-users alike.
At this price, though? There's no cheaper kid-tracker I know of, and it's a pretty easy add-on if you're already a Verizon customer.
