Now that the Apple Watch 5 has been released, the deals on the last-generation are starting. At Amazon, you can get the Apple Watch 4 for only $429.00. This is a great way to save money – The newest generation costs a whopping $700 for the cellular or $384.00 for the GPS only option.
Anyway, let’s take a quick rundown of the features on the 4th generation Apple Watch. It has everything you would expect in a smartwatch – Phone calls, heart-rate sensors, GPS, and even automatic workout detection. Furthermore, the device has both GPS and cellular connectivity options.
In the newest smartwatch, there are a few differences. First off, it has a 30% larger screen. To be honest, this isn’t very important – especially since it’s only a watch. Second, the device is swim-proof. Considering most people will take the watch off anyway, this feature is not that important.
The biggest change is the always-on display, which will most likely use more battery anyway. It also has an application that monitors noise and tells you when things are too loud for your health.
So, why should you get the Apple Watch 4 instead? Even though the 5th-generation only costs $384.00, you can get both cellular and GPS functionality in the older generation for only $429.00 – Whereas the 5th-generation will cost you $700. That’s where you will be saving money.
If I had to choose between the two, I would easily choose the older option. Not only will it save you money, but you don’t always need the “next best thing”.
