There are plenty of good Prime Day Apple Watch deals deals this year, but I had my heart set on getting an Apple Watch 3 for my son. He's getting into running, and it will be great for tracking his pace and overall progress. 

Right now Amazon doesn't even have the Apple Watch 3 in stock, and Apple is selling it for $199. So when I saw that the Apple Watch Series 3 (GPS/38mm) on sale for $169 at Walmart I put it right in my cart.  

Apple Watch 3 (GPS/38mm): was $199 now $169 @ Walmart

The Apple Watch 3 is a great fitness tracker and smartwatch. The waterproof watch offers heart rate notifications, workout detection, Apple Music, and Siri support for a low price. 

Apple Watch 3 (GPS/42mm): was $229 now $199 @ Walmart

Want a bigger display? Walmart also has the Apple Watch 3 with the larger 42mm watch face on sale for $199. <a href="https://target.georiot.com/Proxy.ashx?tsid=45724&GR_URL=https%3A%2F%2Famazon.com%2FApple-Watch-GPS-38mm-Space-Aluminium%2Fdp%2FB07K3HG6T9%3Fth%3D1%26tag%3Dhawk-future-20%26ascsubtag%3Dhawk-custom-tracking-20" data-link-merchant="Amazon US"" data-link-merchant="walmart.com"" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">Amazon has it for the same price.

Although it's been around for a while, the Apple Watch 3 is one of the best smartwatches around. You get a water-resistant design that's swim-proof and built-in GPS is there to keep track of your pace and distance when you run. 

In our Apple Watch 3 review, we really liked the watch's fitness tracking features, its design, and Apple Music support. The newer Apple Watch SE has a larger display, fall detection and optional cellular connectivity, but the Apple Watch 3 is still great as a starter smartwatch.
