The Apple Watch has historically been one of the hottest Christmas gifts and 2017 should be no exception. When the Apple Watch launched in 2015, it was an in demand item. The Series 2 was nearly impossible to find before Christmas 2016. And we expect that this trend will continue. So if you have your heart set on giving out the Series 4, better secure it early!
June 2018 Update: They are just beginning to talk about the features that the next generation Apple Watch might have. The Apple Watch 4 is expected to launch before Black Friday 2018 with solid state buttons and a larger screen. We don’t know yet whether it will be too big of hit to see any great deals on the Series 4, but we will be following the ads closely to see what they are doing for the kickoff to the Christmas shopping season with this hot product.
The Series 3 was a top performer in Consumer Reports testing. It retails for $499 for the 42mm stainless steel case with GPS and Cellular. It earned high marks for step counting and heart-rate tracking. It also scored well on scratch resistance. The big difference between the Series 3 and the Series 2 is that some versions allow users to receive calls and text messages without having to carry your cell phone. It also contains a few other upgrades, including a faster processor.
The Series 3 38mm Aluminum Case with GPS and Cellular retails for $399. Without cellular, it retails for $329. The LTE connection currently costs $10 a month on major carriers in addition to your iPhone plan. If you are within range of your iPhone, the Watch connects via Bluetooth. If you are not, then it uses the LTE communication.
The battery life is approximately one hour of talk time via LTE, three hours via the bluetooth connection, and around 18 hours with moderate use.

If you are looking for a great deal on an Apple Watch over Black Friday 2017, then you should probably be shopping for a Series 2. Because the Apple Watch Series 3 was just released, there will probably be few if any price discounts on it.
