The Apple Watch is one of the best wearable devices money can buy, as long as money isn’t a problem. Apple keeps dropping the entry price of the Apple Watch, but the device is still too expensive for some people. However, Best Buy is ready to help out, as the retailer is hosting a massive Apple Watch sale right now.

Best Buy is selling the 38mm model on eBay for as little as $189, and the 42mm model for $219. That’s an impressive offer that you should check out immediately if you’re shopping for new wearable gadgets.

However, there is one thing you should know about the Apple Watch that Best Buy is selling. These are first-gen Apple Watch models that Best Buy is clearing out to make room for the brand new Apple Watch Series 1 and Apple Watch Series 2 devices.

Apple earlier this week announced an improved version of its wearable called the Apple Watch Series 2. The company decided to keep the original Apple Watch in its lineup under a Series 1 moniker. However, the Apple Watch Series 1 device that Apple sells is an upgraded first-gen Apple Watch model (it has a faster processor) that’s priced starting at $269.

In other words, the first-gen Apple Watch Best Buy has on sale isn’t the same as the Apple Watch Series 1 Apple is selling. That said, the deal isn’t bad at all if you don’t need to always have the latest and greatest gear, so head over to check out the sale.
