The forum uses software that localizes the Amazon link based on the users location.
I suspected so, given that @jicon is from Toronto per the user info under the name.
Thanks for sharing this. :)

Maybe MacRumors fixed the link, or the link is based on the location of the user.

That is a good point. They might have 2 years left.
On the other hand, the series 4 is already a better value by now. It has the larger screen display along with fall detection, on top of the ECG. The series 3 was already left behind a bit with the faces on the newer OS.
No doubt the AW4 is the better value deal. I was mostly defending my AW3 as I just bought it in December ?

I think the AW3 probably has more than just 1 year left. It is still being sold by Apple after all. Can’t think of any product that Apple has sold that was defunct a year later.
