Whether you're looking for a better way to track your workouts or in search of a shiny timepiece for your wrist, the Apple Watch simply outshines the competition and it's our top smartwatch pick. But it's also not cheap, which is why it's always worth checking around for deals.

Apple Watch Series 3 Deals
For a limited time, Best Buy is taking $50 off the Series 3 (GPS only) models with the 32mm Apple Watch selling for $279 ($50 off) and the 42mm Apple Watch selling for $309 ($50 off). It's the best discount we've seen for the current-gen Apple Watch, which is rarely on sale.
For the first time ever, we're also seeing deals on the Apple Watch Nike+ Edition Series 3 models. Head to Nike and use coupon code "20SUMMER" to take 20 percent off all models. After coupon, the 38mm model (cellular) sells for $319.20 ($79 off), whereas the 42mm model (cellular) sells for $343.20 ($85 off).
Alternatively, you can get the 42mm model (GPS only) for $343.20.
Nike's coupon expires June 16.
The Apple Watch Series 3's biggest new features include a brighter 1,000 nit screen, built-in GPS (with a cellular option), water resistance (up to 50 meters), and a built-in barometric altimeter.
Apple Watch Series 2 Deals
Currently, Best Buy is taking $120 off the Apple Watch Series 2 Stainless Steel Models. You can get the 38mm model for $479 or the 42mm model for $529. (Best Buy is only discounting the pricier Stainless Steel models and not the base Apple Watch Series 2, which few retailers are offering).
Apple Watch Series 1 Deals
The Apple Watch Series 1 offers notifications, fitness tracking, Apple Pay, and more, but it lacks built-in GPS. And while this model is splash-resistant, it can't be submerged or used in the pool like the Series 2 and Series 3 models, which are water resistant up to 50 meters. With a 450-nit rating, its OLED screen isn't as bright as the Series 2 and Series 3 models, which both have a 1,000-nit rating. Lastly, it lacks a barometric altimeter and uses a dual-core S1P processor, instead of Apple's current-gen S3 dual-core CPU.
