Of course, Apple has now completed the fifth iteration of the Watch Series, so for people who buy smart watches, the older Series 3 is the budget choice. It lacks some new features of the series, such as ECG measurement, fall detection and always display, but everything else you need is there.

If you pursue a good smart watch, it may be much worse than Apple Watch Series 3, especially at this price. Of course, Series 5 provides newer and more advanced features, but if you only need basic knowledge (packed in a light and attractive design), then this lowest historical offer may be your best choice.
