Currently, Best Buy has the Apple Watch Series 3 (GPS/38mm) on sale for $179. (The 42mm model is also on sale for $209). That's $20 off and it beats the best Cyber Monday deal we saw for these models by $20. If you want a cheap smartwatch — this is the deal you want. But it doesn't end there. Best Buy is also taking $100 off multiple Apple Watch 5 models with prices starting at $299. That's the cheapest Apple Watch 5 deal we've seen. Given how rare  these Apple Watch deals are, these are very likely to be the lowest prices we see till Amazon Prime Day.

Even if you're not big on workouts, the Apple Watch 3 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. 

If you want a newer model, the Apple Watch 5 sports an always-on display and Apple's latest S5 processor. In our Apple Watch Series 5 review, the watch got a near-perfect rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars for its useful compass and impressive watchOS 6 software.
