The Apple Watch Series 5 remains a cracking smartwatch, even with it now being replaced by the Series 6 and no longer part of the line-up offered at the company’s official stores.
WatchOS devices can currently be caught on eBay – refurbished by Apple – with a 12-month warranty for only £ 279.99. This 44mm watch is also available with a range of colors. You are only getting a Wi-Fi watch, but it comes with built-in GPS and 32 GB of storage.
You do not have to worry about missing the latest software, as it is compatible with the latest WatchOS 7 update and is likely to remain this year’s update and beyond.
So why should you look at the 2019 Apple Watch Series 5 instead of the new Apple Watch Series 6 and the affordable Apple Watch SE? Well, the cost is there, of course. The £ 279.95 for the 44mm model is significantly cheaper than the Series 6, priced at £ 409 for the same model.
Then there is the Apple Watch SE, released last year, priced at £ 299. The eBay deal, which comes through independent company Loop Mobile, offers a Series 5 that includes an ECG feature lacking by SE.
Of course, we are always somewhat cautious when purchasing refurbished products, but Loop has a positive response rating of 98.5% from around 15,000 transactions.
