Apple products, even older models, tend to hold their prices over the years, so it can be difficult to find a discount on the device you want. For that reason, it is often the best choice to go for a refurbished model if you want to save some money. Woot, an Amazon subsidiary, is one of our favorite places to find refurbished electronics, and as long as you don’t mind some minor scuffs, scratches, and dings, you can find Apple devices for impressive bargains. Just today, Wednesday, July 20, Woot has several generations of refurbished Apple Watches on sale, so you can save hundreds compared to buying a new one.
Outside of the latest Apple Watch 7, Woot’s sales include every Apple Watch model released from the Apple Watch 3 through Apple Watch 6. And while these may be older models, they still pack plenty of powerful specs and performance. The Series 6, which can be bought for just $250, has 18 hours of battery life, water resistance up to 50 meters and almost identical performance and health tracking capabilities compared to the upgraded Series 7.
If you’re just looking for the basic smartwatch features like music streaming, health stats, wrist calls, and phone notifications, the Apple Watch SE is a great choice, and you can get one from just $190. For those who want to spend as little as possible. to an Apple Watch, the Series 3 can be considered starting at just $95, although it should be noted that this model is now several years old and won’t get the WatchOS 9 update this fall. As a smartwatch beginner, you can get a feel for Apple’s wearable ecosystem without spending more than you need to, though it’s probably worth spending the extra $40 to get the newer Series 4 if you can.
It should be noted that all Apple Watch models available in this sale have been rated as “Scratch and Dent” quality improvements. That means that although they have been tested and confirmed to be fully functional, they will have noticeable cosmetic imperfections. Learn more about Woot’s refurb rating and criteria.
