If you didn’t know any better, you’d think it was the fourth Friday of November. 

Get this: Amazon is currently having a sale on the Apple Watch Series 3 at the Black Friday-worthy discount of $80 off. (No, seriously — it was on sale at the exact same price last Black Friday.)

Considering this smart accessory usually sells for $279 in the Apple Store, you’re scoring a pretty sweet bargain.

The Series 3 is the second newest of Tim Cook’s smartwatches and boasts a pretty impressive lineup of features, including a GPS, an optical heart sensor, 8GB of storage, Bluetooth 4.2 technology, the Apple Pay mobile payment service, and a battery that’ll last you up to 18 hours on a single charge. It’s also water-resistant up to a depth of 50 meters, which means you can shower and swim worry-free while wearing it.

This particular Apple Watch doesn’t support a cellular service, but you can use the connection of your nearby iPhone to have it send and receive texts, get notifications, and answer phone calls. 

Amazon reviewer Texas Camille writes:

“I have been wanting one for a while and purchased it right before it went on sale (boo hoo) but I am enjoying it every much. I bought it for the health and activity features but love the fact I can read and respond to a text message on it, get weather updates and control my music. … Great entry level Apple Watch. If you’re on the fence about spending the money on a watch, go ahead and try this one out.”

The Apple Watch Series 3 that’s included in this deal has a 38mm case, features a space gray finish, and comes with its own black sports band (designed to fit 130 to 200mm wrists). Snag one today for just $199 — a can’t-miss savings of almost 30%.

And for a slightly bigger smartwatch, check out the same Apple Watch model with a 42mm case (designed to fit 140 to 210mm wrists); it also happens to be on sale. 

Get it today for only $229 — 26% off its usual retail price of $309.

In case you missed it, Best Buy had a huge Apple Sale Event last week. Virtually all Apple products were on sale — except for the Apple Watch Series 4. We’re not sure if they forgot to include it in the sale or if it was a strategic move, but regardless, they’re making up for it now.

All Series 4 Apple Watches are currently $50 off at Best Buy, even the Nike ones. That means you can grab one of the newest Apple Watches for as low as $349.

The Series 4 display is about 30 percent larger than previous models while the case is thinner and smaller, offered in two sizes: 40 millimeter and 44 millimeter. The user interface is optimized for the new screen size, with bigger fonts and icons. Reply to texts, challenge your friends to fitness competitions, or use the walkie talkie feature to talk to other Apple Watch users, even without cellular.

In addition to appearance improvements, the Series 4 also has advanced fitness tracking. It automatically tracks workouts, including yoga and hiking. And if you’re a runner, you can enjoy new features like cadence and pace alerts. Plus, with the larger screen, you can see up to five metrics at a glance while you’re active.

At Best Buy you can find the standard model with just GPS, the model with GPS and cellular, and the Nike model, all available in both 40 and 44 millimeters and an array of colors. Check out the sale and save $50.

If you made a beeline for the Apple Watch section during Best Buy’s Apple Event last week, you probably noticed something: Apple Watches got booted from the cool kid’s table. (Unless you were interested in the Series 1, I guess.) 

While Garmin, Fitbit, and the other top watches in the fam are constantly discounted, Apple Watch fans get left out in the cold.

Try looking at Walmart for a change: Most models of the Apple Watch Series 3 are $80 off, making prices as low as $199 (vs. not being on sale at Best Buy or Apple.) *Hair flip emoji*

Whether you’ve had a day of hardcore workouts or were climbing flights of stairs during a move, the Series 3 tracks any and all movement and puts it toward your three goals for the day: move, stand, and exercise. 

With summer creeping up quick, you’re gonna need a watch that isn’t afraid to get wet. The Series 3 can be taken right into the pool or the ocean, and will keep up with you during a run in the rain. Leave your phone at home and check notifications right on your wrist, ask Siri for directions, and stream up to 45 million songs with Apple Music.

Here are the models up for grabs:

Series 3 38 mm with GPS, white — $199 (list price $279)

Series 3 42 mm with GPS, black or white — $229 (list price $309)

Series 3 38 mm with GPS+Cellular, black or white — $299 (list price $379)

Series 3 42 mm with GPS+Cellular, black or white — $329 (list price $409)

If you’re not in it for intense heart rate monitoring, opting for the Series 3 over the Series 4 is the move. Pick yours and save $80 with free two-day shipping here.

We all know that Apple Watches are more than just watches. They’re basically smartphones for your wrist with fitness tracking capabilities. The Series 4 is the newest and most advanced watch yet, and right now it’s on sale for $50 off at Best Buy.

The display is about 30 percent larger than previous models while the case is thinner and smaller, offered in two sizes: 40 millimeter and 44 millimeter. The user interface is optimized for the new screen size, with bigger fonts and icons.

Apple improved its health tracking in the Series 4 watches — the device tracks heart rate in the background and alerts users of alarming changes. It also detects falls and gives users the option to call emergency services.

With a Series 4 Apple Watch you’re able to challenge your friends to fitness competitions and you can use the walkie talkie feature to talk to other Apple Watch users, even without cellular.

Best Buy has both the GPS and GPS plus cellular models of Apple Watch Series 4 on sale. They start at $399 and $499 respectively, but right now you can save $50 off the list price.

Apple just cancelled its AirPower wireless charger

It’s official: Apple’s AirPower wireless charging mat is dead. 

The company confirmed AirPower’s cancelation in an emailed statement to TechCrunch.

“After much effort, we’ve concluded AirPower will not achieve our high standards and we have cancelled the project,” Apple Senior Vice President of Hardware Engineering Dan Riccio said. “We apologize to those customers who were looking forward to this launch.”

Despite AirPower’s cancellation, Riccio said Apple still believes the future is wireless. “We continue to believe that the future is wireless and are committed to push the wireless experience forward,”

AirPower was first announced in September 2017 alongside the iPhone 8 and iPhone X and was supposed to be the one accessory to wirelessly charge an iPhone, Apple Watch, and AirPods all at once.

But after missing its launch in later 2017, and then failing again to show up during the iPhone XS and XR’s announcement, it was clear something was wrong.
