Today Apple sells three Apple Watch models — the three-year-old Apple Watch Series 3 starting at $199, and the just-released Apple Watch SE and Apple Watch Series 6 models, which start at $279 and $399 respectively.
With these options in mind, which Apple Watch should you buy? Should you go all out and spring for the Apple Watch Series 6, or should you take the more cost-conscious route with the Series 3 or SE? Watch our hands-on video walkthrough as we explore Apple’s wearable lineup as it stands today.
Apple Watch Series 3
Speaking as someone who’s owned every single Apple Watch since its debut back in 2015, if you’re considering the purchase of a new Apple Watch, I recommend avoiding the Apple Watch Series 3. While it was the first Apple Watch to ship with cellular connectivity, the Series 3 looks and feels outdated in 2020.
For starters, Apple no longer sells Series 3 models with cellular connectivity. If you’re someone who likes the idea of staying connected with your Apple Watch while away from Wi-Fi and your Bluetooth-paired iPhone, remove the Series 3 from your consideration.
