Apple Watch Series 1 starting at $179.99 @ Target 2/4-2/10

Just saw this in an Target ad - Series 1 $70 off; Series 3 still starting at $329.99 so no deals there but it seems that the Series 1 might be a good option to test the Apple Watch waters, no? Obviously, the 3 is a better watch but the under $200 price point might prove too hard to resist for my wife who would really only use it for basic health tracking functions (at least initially) - replacing our buggy Fitbit Charge HRs that were ultimately returned after much ado for a full refund. She says she'd have her phone nearby most of the time and notifications would be nice but has no interest the added upfront and monthly cost for cellular version of the 3.

The best deal for a 3 is probably B&H at regular retail with free shipping and no tax so that would be about $140 more than the series 1 after tax. Hmmm.

Any Series 1 owners care to chime in with their experiences with this watch? Thanks!

My daughter and I have the series 1 aluminum sport version. We're perfectly happy with them. Mine has survived all my woodland adventures. I like getting all my notifications and calls when the phone is somewhere else in the house or in my pocket.

Series 1 is essentially a Series 2 without GPS. Good deal if you don’t need GPS. [9to5mac.com]

I am thinking of getting something to monitor my heart rate, both during normal activities and also at the Gym. At Gym the machines have heart rate monitor, which is OK on bicycles, but on elliptical you have to hold the small fixed handles, there is no contacts on the large handles that move back and forth.

Wife and daughter both love their 0, even if it is slower, its all about the functionality.

My wife s very happy with her series 1 I purchased at about this price over BF.

She replaced the Apple band and is happier with how it fits now.

Target has had this price once a month for a Series 1 since at least Black Friday, maybe even before.

Cheapest price for a 3 still seems to be Costco @ $315, but for me means .0625 tax on $330 picked up local.
I've borrowed a fitbit Charge 2
I can wait.

Yeah, tons of cheap but well made bands on AMZ, they both have a half dozen each,

I picked up a 42mm Series 1 around Xmas at Target's $209.99 price. A Target credit card knocks 5% off that to make it less than $200. Added a $17 knockoff Milanese Loop band from Amazon. For my uses (timers, fitness tracking/nudges, password reminders, all with my phone pocketed), it's been great. None of the Series 3 features were a draw for me. I'll use this one for a few (watch) generations, and keep an eye on future versions.
