The same $80 discount also applies to the 42mm version, which is currently available for $229.

As for the Apple Watch Series 4, it features larger displays plus advanced health sensors. Those additions made the best smartwatch even better, and now Amazon is knocking $50 off the cost of the GPS-equipped version of the Series 4. That means the 40mm model starts at $349 while the 44mm model costs $379.
