Want a bigger display? Walmart also has the Apple Watch 3 with the larger 42mm watch face on sale for $179. That's $50 off and the cheapest price we've seen for this model. By comparison, Amazon sells it for $198.

Even if you're not big on workouts, the Apple Watch 3 is one of the best smartwatches around. It's also super affordable when compared to Apple's other smartwatches. You get a water-resistant design that's swim-proof and built-in GPS 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 its speedy performance. Yes, it's now showing its age, but it still remains an excellent smartwatch for anyone who doesn't want to invest too much in a great smartwatch. 

If you want a newer model, the Apple Watch 6 ($349 at Amazon, $50 off) sports an always-on display, Apple's latest S6 processor, and blood oxygen (SpO2) sensors. In our Apple Watch Series 6 review, the watch got a near-perfect rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars for its bright display, versatility, and impressive software.
