IF YOU thought most of the good Apple Cyber Monday deals would be picked through by now, think again. Thanks to Cyber Monday sales there are a few diamond-in-the-rough deals that are almost too good to be true. Take for example the sale on this Apple Watch SE (1st Gen) GPS + Cellular. Right now you can get the 40mm cellular Apple Watch at Walmart for $229—the lowest price ever on an Apple Watch with call and text capability.
You might be having a bit of deja vu with this deal, and that's because Walmart rolled out the Apple Watch SE (1st Gen) GPS only version of this watch for just $149 on Black Friday. (That deal is still happening, by the way!) For Cyber Monday, Walmart piggybacked on the never-before-seen deal and dropped the price on the cellular version of the Apple Watch SE (1st Gen) exclusively for its digital-only sale. While it's true this 1st generation SE sacrifices a few features when compared to the 2nd generation—the main difference is the 2nd gen comes with a 20% faster S8 chip—this sale allows you to have all the textbook Apple Watch features plus call and text ability for under $230. If you want to compare prices to the cellular version of the 2nd gen SE, you save about $100 if you get this Cyber Monday deal—the average retail of the Apple Watch 2nd gen SE cellular is about $329.

So if you want to see what it's like to pair this watch with your phone plan and make calls and send texts while on the go, this is the perfect opportunity. Those who do switch to a cellular Apple Watch often become diehard fans of the feature, as it allows them to leave their phone at home or in the car while they go for a walk or go run errands. Lest we forget to mention how great of a gift this watch would be for a friend or loved one. Maybe they're an Apple Watch new-by or they could use a quality backup? This is a top-level gift idea for either of those types of individuals. Looking for a larger case size? Walmart is also offering this model's 44mm case size for an all-time low of $249.
There's no telling how much stock Walmart is carrying in this watch. Still, if you want to compare to other retailers it's worth mention Amazon doesn't even carry this bad boy right now—you can only get this product in a renewed/refurbished state on Amazon. At Walmart Cyber Monday, select Space Grey, Silver with navy band, or Silver with gold for the color and choose between a 40mm or 44mm case size. Score that free shipping and have it arrive ASAP at your doorstep. Then, set up your Apple Watch with your phone plan and go make a call to your brother while your phone sits in the car. We're living in the (affordable) future here, people.
