The 1st Generation Apple Watch SE GPS Is Only $149 at Walmart Right Now
DID WALMART just make the entry price for an Apple Watch its lowest ever for Black Friday? It appears so, as the retail giant is offering a 1st generation Apple Watch SE GPS 40mm for a mind-blowing $149 (47% off). And if you want to score a larger case size, you can get the 1st generation Apple Watch SE GPS 44mm for $179 (42% off). Just to clarify, this is an older Apple Watch model (first released in 2020) but you still get features like GPS connectivity, heart rate monitoring, and sleep monitoring. The 1st gen Apple Watch SE also comes with a waterproof design and Retina OLED display.

So what does this watch not come with? Well, the main difference between the 1st generation Apple Watch SE and the 2nd generation Apple Watch SE is the 2nd gen has an S8 chip that’s 20% faster than the 1st gen’s S5 chip. And in the broader picture of Apple Watch features, the 1st generation Apple Watch SE doesn’t come with ECG or blood oxygen sensors. But if you remember the main purpose of the Apple Watch SE, it was to play the role as the perfect entry-level smartwatch. So this as a deal that’s best for those who can go without the shiny new bells and whistles. In fact, we see the 1st generation Apple Watch SE as the perfect gift for smartwatch first timers and for those who are looking for a backup smartwatch to beat up while working out.

Well done, Walmart. Well done.
