Apple Watch Series 1 is now just $269

While the reveal of the Apple Watch Series 2 is getting all the glitz and glamor, the tech giant isn’t putting the wearable’s first generation out to pasture just yet. The renamed and slightly boosted Series 1 will be available as a budget option at $269 compared to the newest model’s $369 price tag. While it won’t get its successor’s water resistance down to 50m nor its built-in GPS, it will get the faster dual-core processor.

Just like original Apple Watches out in the wild, new Series 1 wearables will run WatchOS3, which will bring interface tweaks and reduced loading times to both product lines. Users can download the new mobile operating system on September 13th.
