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.

Good point.
But I would rather buy the kid an SE phone than an Apple Watch.
It actually might be cheaper.
Agreed! The watch is much more limited than an actual phone, and in some cases, the phone would be cheaper. I guess the previous poster doesn't want to have the child exposed to all the fun (and not so fun) things that a cell phone could bring.

Costco has series 6 for the same price. Is this a better deal?

Costco only sells the aluminum, not the stainless steel (which retails at $700+). This is also the GPS + Cellular model.

Snagged a 40mm gold ss series 6 on OfferUp for $400 on Christmas Eve. Thinking about picking this one up for my mom. ss are so much better than regulars, and they look much more premium (shiny compared to matte look)
???
Anyone actually buys stuff at OfferUp?
I did much better with Letgo.
When I'm able to sell something, 99% of the time it's through FB MarketPlace.

Quote from bommai :
As the previous poster explained, The latest watchOS can be configured for someone that does not have an iPhone.
Thank you. The Family Setup wasn't posted when I started my comment. It's the perfect solution. It also has other options available to the parents such as to keep the watch from becoming a distraction during school hours.

The watch has its own phone number. I think that"s primarily for billing purposes. Both the phone and watch ring when someone calls you. That could be a problem. If in class, he can just turn the sound off. It's a great safety device for kids. Less likely to lose it. You can put a phone icon on the face, which let's him quickly call you in case of emergency.


Quote from swnben :
Can I give the watch to my kid as a $10+fees add on to my cellular phone and not give my kid a cell phone? My kid can just call and text me with it? Or is it married to my cell phone somehow? Thanks for any help.

I guess not bad if you need new? But I would double check with eBay prices if you didn't need new, after tax this seems a little high, especially for the small one

Edit- Just saw this was the stainless steel one, that does make it better, But I would still double check, you have to with every slick deal nowadays

Offerup is the best one in my opinion. Letgo is hot garbage for me

How is this a good price? I bought Apple watch 5 from Target last year at $360 (including taxes) last year in Feb. It was a 40 mm watch.

If you want to use GPS for Running (distance accuracy for marathon, or any race), you must pick Apple Watch 6 series, which does according to reviews pick up sharp corners/turns (like letter L) more closely than smoothing out with curves ( like letter C).
