If you'd rather score a great Apple Watch deal than drop a bunch of cash on the latest model, you're probably going to be best served by going for a refurbished previous-gen device. That's exactly what Woot is offering today with Grade A-rated devices on sale from just $170. Various configurations, colors, and sizes are available while supplies last.

While Apple moved to the Apple Watch Series 6 late last year, and we're not a million miles from its next fall event, previous-gen Apple Watch models are still some of the best smartwatches on the market. If you are new to Apple Watch or just want a great entry-level device, they are still worth a look at these prices.

While we probably wouldn't recommend the Apple Watch Series 3 at this stage in the product's lifecycle, and with prices not too much lower in this sale than brand new, the sale features Apple Watch Series 4 and Series 5 devices that are still worth considering.

Both have an edge-to-edge display and offer EKG functionality, as well as Apple Watch's advanced health tracking, convenient notifications, and all of the features watchOS brings. The newer Series 5, from $270 in this sale, also has an always-on display making it function even better as a timepiece.

The devices at Woot are limited in supply, and some are already sold out, so don't miss out on the other models that still remain. All of the Apple Watch models are listed as Grade A refurbished condition which means they are guaranteed to have minimal cosmetic damage and have successfully passed a full diagnostic test which ensures like-new functionality. Their batteries are at minimum 85% capacity, too. Each is backed by a 90-day warranty.

Shipping is free at Woot if you log in with your Amazon Prime account. If you're not yet set up with Prime, you can start your 30-day free trial to save on shipping today and get in on all of the other benefits Amazon Prime has to offer.
