When it comes to work-from-home accessories, an Apple Watch is probably the be-all and end-all. It’s basically like having a personal assistant right on your wrist: It’ll make sure you don’t miss any calls or texts, remind you to take regular stretch breaks, and keep you on top of your workload with apps like Slack, Trello, and Evernote. (Just be sure to turn off your notifications when you’re off the clock — boundaries, people.)
The Apple Store is (in)famous for never offering deals, but no matter: Amazon currently has several variants of the new Apple Watch Series 5 on sale, with an additional $84.01 discount applied once you add one to your cart.
(Those extra savings aren’t being advertised widely across the site, mind you — we only noticed them after clicking on the product pages for different variants of the smartwatch to see what’s available.🕵️♀️)
FWIW, the Apple Watch Series 5 earned a coveted Mashable’s Choice Award upon its release last fall, with tech reporter Karissa Bell praising the wearable for its large, “always-on” display, custom band options, updated health-tracking features, and built-in compass. We also like the fact that it’s water-resistant up to 50 meters, which means you don’t have to worry about ruining it in a pool or at the beach later this summer (once social distancing restrictions in your area are lifted, of course).
Amazon doesn’t specify an end date to this promotion other than noting it’s “valid for a limited time only,” so hop on it now while you still can. Choose from the following variants:
Apple Watch Series 5 (GPS, 40mm), Space Gray Aluminum Case with Black Sport Band — $299.99 (normally $399)
