Apple today announced the Apple Watch Series 5, and confirmed that it would continue to sell the Apple Watch Series 3 starting at the lower price of $199.


The Apple Watch Series 3 is available in both GPS and cellular models, both of which support the new watchOS 6. It's not entirely clear right now if that means Apple is discontinuing the Series 4 model, but it's likely.

Apple's special event is underway at Steve Jobs Theater. Refresh for updates and follow our September 2019 event hub for coverage of all of Apple's announcements today.

So why keep the 3 and drop the 4?
Because Tim likes his margins. Same reason the 10.2" iPad ships with an A10.

Still, Watch 3 seemed like a solid product and this new price brings it down to a point where I'll actually think about getting one.

Been on fence about a watch since the OG came out so many years back. Couldn't never justify cost vs use. BUT for 199, I am finally jumping in! Ordered me a 38mm nike! Jazzed!

So Apple knows the Apple Watch series 5 is not a huge upgrade so they discontinue series 4 because that's the one everyone would buy because of the cheaper price.
