The debut of the Apple Watch Series 3 brought about a few price drops for the previous generation Series 2 models last month, with B&H Photo offering around $290 for 38mm cases and $320 for 42mm cases in Aluminum. This week at Best Buy, prices have continued to drop by about $20 for a wide variety of Series 2 Aluminum models, with most 38mm versions selling for $270 and 42mm versions selling for $300.

Included in Best Buy's sale are Apple Watch Nike+ models and some Stainless Steel editions, with the latter models up to $120 off their original retail prices, and as much as $60 down from when we posted the previous Series 2 discount article in mid-September. Below we'll list a few models on sale with Best Buy's new prices (bold) compared to current prices of similar Series 3 collections on Apple.com.

Apple only offers Stainless Steel Series 3 models in LTE versions, meaning that all of the new models with a Stainless Steel case this year are automatically slightly higher in price due to the added LTE capabilities. In total, there are six Apple Watch Series 3 collections (all in Aluminum) without LTE among Apple's 31 new collections of the revamped wearable device. For this reason, anyone who isn't interested in cellular connection on their Apple Watch -- or in Series 3's faster processing speeds -- will greatly benefit from deals on the Series 2 models.

More of the latest deals can be found in our Deals Roundup, where you can find sales this week on the DJI Osmo for iPhone, certified pre-owned iPhone 7 models from T-Mobile, and more.

If anyone is questioning or is looking to purchase the space black model, it's excellent. It's durability with the diamond like carbon coating is extremely durable without scratching. It has a nice sleek look to it.

If I didn’t have to have to newest of everything Apple, I would be completely satisfied with a heavily discounted series 2. Having owned one, it will do pretty much everything 99% of the population would want out of it. It sucks being a Apple nerd sometimes

Really wanted to upgrade to regular SS at some point, but won't pay for LTE to do so. :(
Same here. That is why I'm opting to get the Series 2 SBSS (just waiting to find the right price). Saves me $100+ bucks since I don't need LTE.

Really like hearing that, especially since I have Series 0 SS that I'm looking to replace in favor of the SBSS Series 2.

My S3 space black is awesome, but looking at this product shot of the S2 of the same color, the stupid red dot makes me mad. So pointless. Hopefully watchdots work alright, the all black just looks so clean.

Seems like a decision made by the product marketing team rather than the design team.

I would still buy it at the exchange, although it would be slightly more expensive even with no sales tax. That way, I am still contributing to support our exchange and our troops.
