Are you looking to pick up the Apple Watch Edition sometime soon? For those of you who need a refresher, we’re not talking about the $349 Apple Watch Sport, or the $500+ Apple Watch mid-range model (yes, can you believe that a $500+ watch could be mid-range?). Instead, we’re talking about the high-end, $10,000+ Apple Watch Edition price, with the 42mm,18K gold model costing $15,000 or so. Well, the price of that smartwatch has dropped 8 percent, from $15,000 to $13,898 – a difference of about $1,100. And it’s been done at your favorite retailer, none other than Best Buy. The Apple Watch on sale at the $13,898 price is the 42mm, 18 Karat, yellow gold model. Keep in mind that this is a refurbished model, however.
For those who can afford the Apple Watch Edition, it’s likely the case that you don’t need, want, or care about a discount. After all, you can afford a $15,000 smartwatch and money is no object. At the same time, however, even the rich and famous among us can use a little extra money in their pockets from time to time.
In addition to the Apple Watch Edition price drop, Best Buy is also discounting the price of the mid-range Apple Watch from $699 to $599, provided you’re interested in picking up the 42mm stainless steel case with Milanese Loop, that is.
The discounts on these Apple smartwatches are good reminders that a new Apple Watch 2 is in the works. According to early rumors, the Apple Watch 2 may bring Wi-Fi connectivity. For those looking for bling regardless of what’s ahead, this 8% discount on one of the most “blingy” Apple Watch smartwatches is for you.
