Cellular is unnecessary for 90% of users so the added cost is an absolute waste of money for most. Source - I'm a heavy phone user, got a watch with cellular and eventually disconnected the plan because it served no purpose
Purchasing from Best Buy has its advantages for those who live close enough.

Pick up in store (other similar priced options are OOS where I live).

Ship to store. No worries about it getting lost in mail, receiving an empty package, etc. (No other place near me has the ship to store option).

Trade-in credit for old Apple watch. Best Buy even gives credit for working Series 3 whereas Apple store does not. Other retailers I know of do not allow credit at all for older watches, and Apple only allows credit for the newer model watches.

Return directly to store if issue.

While it may go down a little more than this, keep in mind Best Buy allows trade-ins and pick up at store.

I have a Series 3. While you can get the battery replaced for around $80, this watch no longer gets updates. Has been a great value, and I paid this price for it 5 years ago. It is slow now though. I only use it for notifications, weather/time, pause/play, and to tap quick reply to messages. Will be a nice upgrade given the newer processor, large display, and useful health features.

The 9 basically has a better find my phone features, refined gesture (accessibility allows a similar action in older model watches capable of updates), brighter display, more memory, and updated processor. Love the new pink option and to buy with the Apple band of my choice! I think the x might even be a bigger update because it will be a ten-year edition, but some people need the watch now.

It is likely the glucose monitor feature will have to work in conjunction with an RX device like Dexcom. The blood pressure feature would be cool; I would have opted for the 9 if it had this feature. I don't know what else they could add.
Agree with cellular being unnecessary.

But the stainless steel models with the Sapphire crystal vs aluminum with glass for the regular models is a huge difference.
