When Apple releases a new device it tends to discount the slightly older models, and that’s exactly what happened with the Apple Watch Series 3 when the Series 4 went on sale late last year. Right now Amazon is discounting it even further, which means you can pick up a 38mm Apple Watch Series 3 for just $229.

The model currently available is the GPS version, in Silver with a white Sport Band. It’s a great look, and if you want a relatively inexpensive Apple Watch to help with fitness tracking, or even just to give you a way of receiving notifications other than checking your phone, this is a great way to do it for a great price.

This being an Apple Watch, you’ll get all of the features that it has on offer. GPS and an optical heart sensor are built right in, and interacting with the watch via the touch-screen and Digital Crown is a joy. The watch can be worn when swimming, too, so you can take full advantage of all of the fitness tracking features this thing has even when you’re splashing around in the water. Thanks to watchOS 5, you’re going to get most of the same software advancements of the newer watch, too. Basically, you’re going to get the complete Apple Watch experience even with this model with no compromises at all.

We’ve long been fans of the Apple Watch and it is undoubtedly the best wearable on the market. Couple that with the fact it has been proven to help save lives thanks to its heart monitoring characteristics, and we think there are absolutely worse ways to spend $229 right now.

There is no special discount to apply or anything. Just head over to the listing and the price cut is waiting for you.
