Series 0 = 1st gen
Series 1,2 = 2nd gen
Series 3 = 3rd gen

Here's a comparison of all the apple watch series: 0,1,2,3
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g...hco&t=604s

It's interesting that the series 1 got the best battery life in the review considering the 2,3 has bigger batteries. According to Apple both the series 1 and 3 are rated for up to 18 hrs battery life. Perhaps due to the series 1 450nit and weaker processor for comparable battery life?

Series 3 (3rd gen) is faster with Siri speaks, gps, altimeter, water resistant, 1000nit display. Series 3 cellular has added 16gb storage, ceramic back, and 768 ram.

I was ready to purchase the Series 3 non-cellular over Series 1 mainly for the added speed as I have absolutely no use for GPS, altimeter...and I certainly wasn't going to be paying $10 a month for the cellular version. But Macy ran a fire sale of the Series 1 42mm for $150 that was too good of a deal to pass up and I ended with the Series 1 instead.

My main uses are to quickly check notifications, alarms, time/timer, reminders, weather, quick text message reply, hands free phone calls when I can't get to the iPhone, etc....
It can be a chore to take out the large iPhone Plus from my pocket to check notifications, etc...with the Apple watch, it's much more convenient. I no longer need to always have my phone on me and can roam a moderate distance with the Apple Watch and still get phone calls/notifications. I've taken showers with the Series 1 watch while awaiting phone calls/text messages as well as submerging it completely underwater and it's holding up well. It pairs amazingly well with my Airpods and adds music control functionality...fantastic combo for gym workouts. The new software updates have made the series 1 quicker with it's native apps and is perfectly adequate for my usage, although at times can be a bit sluggish.

The Series 3 is clearly the best Apple Watch to date and this is a pretty nice deal.

Using their credit card and my elite plus rewards status, I got $20 back in points. Plus it's slightly closer to us and I got to avoid a trip to Costco on Saturday which is always super crowded. Plus my wife would have found another $200 worth of purchases at Costco! Lmao

Instead of searching through slickdeal forums, you could have tried it to see for yourself..everyone have their own choice so better use it for next 5 days and make decision.

Thanks. Grabbed the gray one and used a coupon code from a previous deal I had, to drop it to $275 shipped.
What kind of coupon code? Is it a publicly available one?

No, it was one I got from the membership deal a few months back. It was $25 off $250 purchase.

Target would pricematch costco.com, but if I am not a member of costco.com I can't sign in to see the price. I.e. how do I show the person at the Target customer service desk that it is $285 since you have to sign in to see the price...?
Target in store will?
