Apple currently has the 38mm Apple Watch Sport (Space Gray only) on their site for $299USD, but you can land it for $100 less on eBay through Best Buy. The Apple Watch Sport is the entry-level version of the Apple Watch, but other than materials used it’s pretty much identical to the higher end version. The 38mm version is slightly smaller than the 42mm version but the difference is noticeable once on your wrist so if you have larger wrists it might look a bit small. The Apple Watch Sport is made from aluminium, while the higher end versions are made from stainless steel. In our opinion, the Sport version is just as good as the pricier steel version and you can always pick up nicer third-party bands on Amazon or eBay.
Apple is expected to announce the next Apple Watch alongside the iPhone 7, so it’s likely that Best Buy is trying to clear out some inventory before the September unveiling. Nearly nothing is known about what the next Apple Watch will look like or what new features it is going to offer over the current versions. Most of the Apple leaks and rumors that have been hitting the news cycles have been around the iPhone 7.
Apple will probably drop pricing on the previous generation of Apple Watch when it releases the new version in September so if you’re in the market for one now, this Best Buy eBay deal is really not bad at all. For $199, a full $100 cheaper than Apple’s price, and free shipping you can’t go too wrong here at all. These watches might drop down another $50 to $149 after the release of the new Apple Watch but they will be in short supply. You also have the option of picking one up used on Swappa or eBay for even cheaper once the new version hits the shelves. Either way, first generation Apple Watch prices should be rather competitive in the next few months.
