Apple launched its latest Watch Series 4 smartwatches alongside the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR in September 2018.

The discount is applicable to 44mm variant of the Apple Watch Series 4 with either the Silver Aluminium Case and White Sport Band or the Space Gray Aluminium Case with a Black Sport Band, according to PhoneArena. As of now, there is no information on how long the offer will last.

To recall, Apple’s Watch Series 4 comes in both 40mm and 44mm display sizes. The smartwatch houses an Apple S4 chipset with a 64-bit dual-core SoC and a new GPU. Apple asserted that the chipset offers two times faster performance than its predecessor. The new Digital Crown offers haptic feedback too.

Additionally, it’s the only wearable with ECG support. The Cupertino giant has stuffed in an electrical heart rate sensor aided by the optical heart rate sensors to record an ECG. The wearable runs watchOS 5 out-of-the-box. There are also the next-gen accelerometer and gyroscope that detects hard falls.

Apple has also improved the quality of the speaker, which is said to offer over 40 percent louder sound. Furthermore, the microphone has been relocated to the right corner of the wearable that should help reduce echo and offer better audio quality. Additionally, the Apple Watch Series 4 comes in GPS-only and GPS+Cellular variants.
