Black Friday preview: the Apple Watch 3 is down to its lowest price ever at Walmart

  Black Friday preview: the Apple Watch 3 is down to its lowest price ever at Walmart Walmart's Black Friday early access sale starts today and has the Apple Watch 4 down to its lowest price ever. The Apple Watch 3 was released in 2017 as a feature-rich smartwatch packed with health-focused features. The Series 3 watch tracks activity, workouts, and calories burned and offers continuous heart rate monitoring. The swim-proof smartwatch can also help meet your fitness goals with reminders to keep moving and personalized coaching.

Best Buy's early Black Friday sale is bringing the heat to the Apple Watch lineup. Today's "doorbusters" are a bit ho-hum -- an inexpensive Lenovo IdeaPad and a 5TB USB hard drive from WD -- but the deals on the Apple Watch Series 4 are no joke. All four models are currently selling at their all-time lowest prices:

Microsoft Surface Pro 7: $649

Save $300

Sure, this entry-level configuration has lower-end components (Intel Core i3 processor, 4GB of RAM, 128GB SSD). But you're still getting the best Windows two-in-one tablet, with the Type Cover thrown in, for $649. This package was down to $600 last week -- but it's still a fantastic deal at this price.

Best Buy's massive Apple sale includes a $250 iPad offer

  Best Buy's massive Apple sale includes a $250 iPad offer Best Buy has already unveiled its Black Friday ad, but if you're in the market for some new Apple gear you can get your hands on some pretty hefty discounts right now. There are good deals to be had across the board, but iPads, HomePods and Apple Watches are where the major savings are. First up, the iPad (with our score of 86/100), where Best Buy members can get either $80 or $100 off a range of models, including the latest fresh-out-of-the factory version. Then there's the iPad Pro (84) -- again, a lot of options here but you're looking at either $150 or $200 off. Considering getting a HomePod (79)? Now's the time, with a chunky $100 off the usual price of $300.

This model features a 17.3-inch display, Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB of RAM, Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti graphics card and jumbo 1TB SSD.

Apple Watch Black Friday Deals: Score a Series 5 for the lowest price ever

  Apple Watch Black Friday Deals: Score a Series 5 for the lowest price ever AirPods Pro and the 7th Generation iPad have both hit their lowest prices ever, but now it's time for another key wearable. The Apple Watch Series 5 is now available at an all-time low on Amazon. © Jacob Krol/CNNThe 40mm Apple Watch Series 5 is down to $355 from $399 on Amazon in three colors. There's an automatic $20 off on the listing itself, and at checkout, an additional $24.01 will be taken off. That latter part is notated on the page and brings the price down to the $355 ---- the lowest price we've ever seen for a Series 5.

The M-Series Quantum delivers excellent picture quality, with deep black levels, accurate color and very good 4K HDR performance. And its smart system is phone-friendly, with Google Cast and Apple AirPlay control.

Walmart is selling this exact set for $100 more and the the 50-inch model for $467 -- but that's the M7 series, which doesn't deliver quite the same level of picture quality as that M8. It's still a great price, however.

$650.00 AT BEST BUY

Apple Watch Nike Plus Series 4 GPS (40mm): $299

Save $50

We love the UE Boom 2 -- a compact, durable wireless Bluetooth speaker that plays loud and sounds good. It's stain-resistant, shock-resistant and fully waterproof. Battery life is a strong 15 hours, and it can be paired with a second UE speaker for stereo sound.

We've long been fans of Lenovo's flagship Yoga laptops -- and the C940, which debuted in January, is one of a handful of Intel's Project Athena devices designed to make it perform more like a phone. The C940 wakes instantly from sleep and has a fingerprint reader that works in a second and Wi-Fi that connects just as fast. This model features a 400-nit FHD-resolution and up to 17.5 hours of battery life.

$1,500.00 AT BEST BUY

LG Gram 17: $1,400 (Update: Expired)

You save $300

The Gram 17 weighs less than most other smaller laptops. It also has an amazing battery life. In fact, its 12 hours of run time made it one of the the top 10 laptops with the longest battery lives we've ever tested. Normally, it's too pricey for us to recommend without qualification. Best Buy's discount makes the case much more straightforward.

The Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal Allergy vacuum does its job without a filter -- and maintains suction over the long haul because of it. It's great with fine particles and bested the competition at deep cleaning. Our only beef is that it's too pricey -- and Best Buy has taken care of that. This is a steal.

$300.00 AT BEST BUY

Bose SoundLink Revolve: $120 (Update: Expired)

You save $80

Best Buy has Bose's SoundLink Revolve on sale for $120, which is the lowest price we've seen for it. This model is smaller than the SoundLink Revolve Plus, but it's a good compact Bluetooth speaker.

Best Buy has the JLabs JBuds Air on sale for $30 through Sunday, Nov. 10. They normally retail for $50. JLabs makes a lot of true wireless earphones and this is its most affordable -- and frankly, the only one I'd buy. It's a decent set of true wireless earbuds that's a relative bargain at $30.

$30.00 AT BEST BUY

Sony SRS-XB01: $15 (Update: Expired)

You save $20

Save $300

If you're less inclined to buy from Apple, Garmin's rugged fitness watches are great. The Fenix 5X cost $700 when it came out in 2017 -- now, Best Buy has it for $300. I've been using Garmin's lower-end Forerunner 245 and I like it a lot. The model on sale here includes all of its fitness tracking functions and adds an altimeter and barometer. Plus, you get topographic US maps, routable cycling maps for turn-by-turn navigation and a scratch-resistant sapphire lens.
