Very good deals on Apple Watch previous gen, if you want stainless steel version at a discounted price:

Series 5 Black Stainless Steel 40mm $380

https://www.bestbuy.com/site/appl.../6215979.p

Open box excellent avail $322 QA Note: No more open box option

Other colors/bands/sizes also discounted, $400+
Link to Series 5 Black Stainless Steel 44mm $450
https://www.bestbuy.com/site/appl.../6215958.p

Stainless steel ones all include cellular capability and have a sapphire based screen rather than glass, so are more scratch resistant. Series 6 SS starts at $700, so big savings if you want SS but willing to go last gen. If you don't care about SS or cellular, not a good deal, just get Series 6.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

Quote from SuperFake :
Hmm... I also bought a SE and waiting for both shipments to see which one I would keep. Personally I might keep the stainless steel as it has better materials. SE and 5 are pretty much the same in terms of functionality.

I would keep the one that feels/fits better. Steel version is heavier and tougher. And I am cheap so I like big discounts. Lol.
Oh really? Cool. When will you be getting the SE? I hope you will report back here on your assessment!

The SE is not the same as the 5. The SE has no always-on display or ECG sensor.

I feel those functions are not essential to me. I could be wrong. That s why I am ordering both and try.

I finally wear the SE model with the sport silicone band. I like the watch (I'll prob return for the Series 6 cuz of quick charge time (100% in 1.5 hours unlike SE 2.5 hours) but the band isn't that comfortable to wear for hours. It cause my skin to react redness. Not sure what the ideal band to get.

Get the Nylon based ones. I also have the same issue with skin rash. I had to remove watch and over moisturize my skin to get it back to normal.

I have purchased these ones recently and they were pretty good. Around $11 for 3 bands and ships from CA so faster shipping.

You can also try silicone ones from Amazon. Silicone ones are softer than the authentic Apple sport band. I have purchased these:

and these Nike knock-offs

It's unbelievable here the level of confusion with the stainless steel vs. aluminum models.
1) In general, all stainless steel models always have cellular as well (LTE), thus you have to compare GPS+LTE if you even want to compare to the aluminum models.

More important, most people who ever had a stainless steel model will not go back to aluminum models because they look better, and more importantly:
2) The stainless stell models are made of well, steel, so general much harder and more scratch and ding resistant. The exception is anything silver/chrome colored, which, while harder, the scratches and chips might be easier to spot. But still, you have less if them.
3) The stainless steel models also have a much harder saphire glass, which is much more scratch resistent.

Personally, I have a 15 months old 4 series SS that looks like new and I will not replace this with anything else but another stainless steel model. It's totally worth the money.

So I got both and tried them on. Decided to keep both (one for wife, one for me). I am using the stainless steel one as it is heavier. In terms of functionality, no difference.... I do not really understand the ECG technology Always on feature is not important to me neither. Keeping the stainless steel one just because the discount. SD effect. Lol. Overall good gadget to have.
