Amazon has introduced a new deal on the 40mm GPS Apple Watch Series 6, pricing the Product(RED) model at just $249.00, down from $399.00. This is the lowest price that we've ever seen for this model, and in general is now the lowest price to date on a new model of the Apple Watch Series 6.

If you've made it this far without a new Apple Watch, I'd suggest waiting for the September event.

I put it in my cart and debated pulling the trigger. Pulled the trigger and no longer in stock. Lol. Only used options.

Why's it called the GPS watch? From some Internet searching, it seems "GPS" model is code for "non-cellular" model? It looks like all Apple Watches have had GPS since series 2.
Yes, the “GPS” (only) designation is to distinguish it from the cellular model (which is called “GPS + Cellular”), but I can see how calling out “GPS” makes it seem like it’s a stand-out or unique feature. It’s probably one of those cases where since Series 2 introduced GPS, the name stuck and was never changed.
