The Apple Watch Series 3 with LTE cellular data capabilities is cheaper than ever at Best Buy right now. The pricing of both the 38mm and 42mm sizes has been lowered by $100, meaning you can own the latest model in its smaller size starting at $299.

Apple will likely announce a new version of the Apple Watch at its annual hardware event in September, which is said to feature a larger screen and other design changes (but work with the same bands). If you don’t need the absolute latest, of the models currently available, this is the one to spend your money on.

Normally we’d say the cellular-ready model isn’t worth the premium, but this discount flips that around a bit. Plus, Apple has since addressed some of the issues with the LTE model from our initial review. The Apple Watch with LTE is unlocked and not tied to a specific carrier. Last week, Best Buy knocked down the price of the GPS-only model to $279, but presently, this more full-featured option is $20 cheaper.
