Apple held its highly anticipated yearly event yesterday and announced a bevy of new products, most notably on the new iPhone 11 and 11 Pro

Other devices should not be ignored - the Apple Watch Series 5 (opens in new tab), which will be released on Friday, September 20, will also boast a wealth of new health features and an 'always on' display, among many other new upgrades. 

Now, a day following the announcement, the Amazon has slashed $70 off select Series 4 Apple Watches (opens in new tab) - and remember, this smartwatch tops our list of the best smartwatches (opens in new tab)currently on the market. 

Apple Watch Series 4 (GPS + Cellular, 40mm) - Space Gray Aluminum Case with Black Sport Band: $429.99 (was $499.00) at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Save $70
- Apple plans to discontinue the Series 4 watch when the Series 5 is released. The GPS + cellular option of the Series 5 will start at $499, the original price of the Series 4 without the $70 discount. If you can do without getting the latest smartwatch from Apple, this is a great deal for the next best thing. 

The Apple Watch Series 4 comes both with and without GPS and cellular (the Apple Watch Series 5 will also come in these two versions), the latter being generally slightly more expensive than the former. Amazon has slashed $70 off the Apple Watch Series 4 (GPS + Cellular), specifically in the Space Gray aluminum case with the black sport band. Some other versions may have a similar or lesser discount, but ultimately, the new price will depend on the design you choose. 

If you think that the price is still a little hefty, the Series 3 may be a more tempting option. While it doesn't have all the bells and whistles of its successors, it has most of what many people look for in a smartwatch: a built-in GPS, optical heart-rate sensor, and water-resistance. The GPS-only version will start at a new low price of $199, while the GPS + cellular version will start at $299. 

But Amazon hasn't just secretly slashed the price of the Series 4. The Series 3 with GPS only is just $199.  (opens in new tab)

These are both incredible deals on equally incredible smartwatches. The Series 4 is the best you can buy, so why wait? With this tempting discount, you're running out of excuses for not buying one!
