Released back in 2021, the Series 7 is no longer the latest Apple Watch on the market. And with a major Apple event scheduled for next week, there’s a good chance that an even newer ninth-gen model will be hitting shelves in the near future. However, this older Apple wearable still has a ton to offer, and right now you can get your hands on one at a great price (as long as you can live with some dings and scrapes). Woot currently has “scratch and dent”-grade refurbs on sale for as little as $230, which saves you $170 compared to shopping new. However, this offer is only available until 9:59 p.m. PT (12:59 a.m. ET) tonight, and some configurations have already sold out, so we’d recommend getting your order in soon if you don’t want to miss out on these savings.
The Apple Watch Series 7 may be a few years old, but it’s still no slouch by today’s standards. In fact, when compared to the Series 8, which is the current flagship model (at least for the time being), we found relatively few notable differences between the two for real-world usage.
You can use the Series 7 to track your exercise, blood oxygen levels, sleep and much more. You can even take an ECG to check your heart rhythm. It has essentially the same display as the Series 8, which allows for larger buttons in apps and a full QWERTY keyboard, making this watch easier to use than its predecessors. The battery lasts up to 18 hours on a single charge, and the Series 7 also has fast charging, so you can top off and get back to what matters without missing a beat.
The main catch with this Woot deal is that these are “scratch and dent”-grade refurbs, which means you should expect them to show signs of wear and tear. Other than that, they are in full working condition with batteries guaranteed to function at 85% capacity or more. A 90-day warranty is also provided.
There are a few different configurations to choose from at Woot. If you want the GPS-only version, you can snag the 41mm model for $230, or the larger 45mm model for $240. If you want cellular connectivity, the price jumps up to $240 for the 41mm model, and $250 for the 45mm model. And all models are available in various colors.
