SAVE $34.41: As of March 26, the white variant of the Apple Watch Series 3 (38mm) is on sale at Walmart for only $164.59 — that’s 17% off its $199 MSRP.
The world of wearables has been buzzing this week with the news that Apple’s thinking about launching a rugged version of its Apple Watch that’s more durable and resistant to extreme environments. (Word on the street is that it could debut later this year or in 2022, if at all.)
But that’s not why we’re here. We’re here because we found a deal that might make you think twice about waiting around ’til Apple’s next-gen smartwatch comes out: Walmart just put the Old Faithful of Apple Watches on sale for close to its best-ever price.
Typically $199, the white variant of the 38mm Apple Watch Series 3 with GPS has dropped down to a mere $164.59 as of March 26 — a 17% savings. (Meanwhile, it’s completely sold out on Amazon.) That’s just over $5 away from its all-time-low price of $159, which it hit *super* briefly at the big box store last week.
We know you’re wondering: Is the Apple Watch Series 3 still worth buying in 2021, four whole years after its initial launch? The answer is very much “yes.” This little smartwatch has outlasted two of its successors (the Series 4 from 2018 and 2019’s Series 5) as Apple’s most basic and affordable wearable, offering continued support for watchOS year after year.
That’s not to say it can even remotely compete with the new Apple Watch Series 6 in terms of health data and tracking. But with its pretty Retina display, swimproof design, and built-in heart rate sensor, the Series 3 gets you the essentials at a stellar price that’s made even better with Walmart’s sale.
