Earlier this week, Apple announced the Apple Watch Series 6 and Apple Watch SE, leading to price reductions on Apple Watch Series 5 (now discontinued, but still the second best smartwatch ever made).
For a limited time, and while supplies last, Walmart has the Apple Watch Series 5 40mm (Gold/Pink Sand) for $299, tying the lowest price I’ve seen on that model. (You can also get the Series 5 44mm size in the same color for $30 more.)
That’s basically $100 below the price of the Series 6, which brings features like a faster processor and blood-oxygen to the table (er, wrist). My two cents on both those additions: Largely unnecessary for most users.
Not wild about the “pink sand” wristband? No problem, you can trade it for countless other options, many of them very inexpensive… If you want a space-gray or silver color, however, hold tight. I’m quite certain we’ll see more deals on the Series 5 in the weeks to come — and maybe even better ones as well.
MacDailyNews Take: Nice prices for the Series 5! If you’re looking for Cellular capability, Walmart has the Apple Watch Series 5 GPS + Cellular, 44mm Space Gray Aluminum Case with Black Sport Band for $429.
