Things looked pretty bleak for a while there as far as Apple’s competition in the smartwatch market goes. These days, however, there are actually some pretty decent Apple Watch alternatives. For example, the Amazfit Bip offers insane 30-day battery life and a bunch of great features for just $80, and the company’s newer Amazfit GTS Smartwatch is the closest thing you’ll find to an Apple Watch, but at a fraction of the price.
Those are both great smartwatches indeed, but they don’t even come close to matching the fit and finish of the Apple Watch, especially when it comes to the newest model, the Apple Watch Series 5. If you’ve had your eye on one, today is the perfect day to get in on the action because Amazon is running a big sale right now that discounts just about all of the most popular models.
Prices start at just $379.05 for the 40mm Apple Watch Series 5 in silver aluminum with a white Sport Band, which is $15 cheaper than the Space Gray model with the black Sport Band. Don’t worry about the band color no matter which model you choose though, because Amazon is blowing out the best-selling Sport Bands on its entire site starting at just $5.09 each. If you’re looking for the larger Apple Watch Series 5 model, you can get the 44mm version starting at just $407.55.
The Apple Watch Series 5 with GPS + Cellular starts at $659 for the 40mm model, which is a $40 discount. The 44mm GPS + Cellular model starts at $699, which is an even bigger $50 discount. There are also $50 discounts on a few different stainless steel Apple Watch Series 5 models, but several of the most popular options are already starting to sell out, so you’ll definitely want to hurry if you don’t want to miss these deals.
Here’s a quick rundown of the Apple Watch Series 5’s key features:
