'Tis the season to buy an Apple Watch, despite the fact that Christmas was 4 months ago and we have another 8 months to go before the big day. Well, you're in luck if the Apple Watch is on your mind. Best Buy is offering select Apple Watch models for $200 off. The stainless steel Milanese Loop Apple Watch (42mm) has been discounted from $699 to $499. The Black stainless steel Apple Watch Sport (42mm) has dropped from $599 to $399, and the 38mm Space Black Stainless Steel Apple Watch Sport can now be had for $349, down from its original $549 price tag.
As these prices show, Apple isn't discounting the basic Apple Watch Sport models with the usual rubber wristband, but those who want to customize their wristbands can get the stainless steel black wristband Apple Watch for the same price as an original Sport model (and, the stainless steel gives it more of an elegant look than the original Watch Sport, which seems designed for athletes and runners. The newly announced nylon wristbands aren't included in the discount, I'm afraid, but you can get something of a Milanese Loop look by way of a third-party wristband that costs just a fraction of what Apple's Milanese Loop band costs.
Keep in mind, though, that the Apple Watch 2 is headed to market by year's end. There are few changes to the Apple Watch that will be made for version 2, so it's perfectly fine to go ahead and make the jump on these prices. You could wait another few months to see if there are any further significant price reductions, but with Apple's $50 price reduction on the Apple Watch Sport down to $299 last month, it's highly unlikely that we'll see a much better price drop anytime soon. Go ahead and make the leap here.
You want to jump on this deal fast. The discount last through tomorrow, April 25th, so don't wait.
