38mm Apple Watch Series 1 in aluminium is available for $279 (released in 2016), while 42mm versions are $309 CAD. Buying these models refurbished will save you $50 and $60 respectively, versus buying new from Apple.

Meanwhile, 38mm Apple Watch Series 2 in aluminum is available for $319 CAD and 42mm models are available for $349 CAD (2016 models).

Apple Watch Series 2 models are no longer offered for sale by Apple and are definitely a good choice if you don’t need LTE connectivity, as offered with Series 3. You’ll be ‘saving’ $110 and $120 respectively versus Series 3, which comes with a W2 processor. Do note only the Series 3 LTE gets a ceramic back, whereas the non-LTE model gets a composite back.

All Series 2 Apple Watch models have a ceramic back, another bonus.

Refurbished Apple Watch models come with the standard one year warranty and a plain white box, but also go through a “rigourous refurbishment process prior to sale”. We can attest refurbished Apple Watches we’ve seen are good as new.

These will sell out quickly, so click here if you’re looking to get one for a Christmas gift for someone.

    What happened to the Fido support for the Series 3 LTE watch? I think it would be a good idea to let Fido know that loyal customers are ready to jump ship because of the lack of support for the VOLTE.

    Series 2 42mm is now $589. That’s insane because a Series 3 is less and faster. WTF Apple?

  • That’s the price for a stainless steel model, not aluminium.

  • I don’t think Fido Apple Watch support is coming anytime soon, considering Rogers doesn’t support it yet. Seems like LTE Apple Watch will be reserved for the premium brands first, then eventually trickle out to flanker brands (hopefully).

    I agree about the flanker brands Gary, but I think we should tell Rogers/Fido that we can go elsewhere if they don’t support this, they need a gentle nudge or kick in the arse? I don’t see why they don’t support it if Bell/Telus can. There is no point me upgrading when my old and slow Apple watch (the 1st generation) still works. Beside time I use it most often for Apple Pay and notifications.

  • Networx

    Well that makes sense. Thanks. Guess I missed the cheap ones. Oh well.

  • Yeah they sell out quickly! But they will come back…eventually. Stay tuned!

  • Giving them feedback on social media etc may be the best way to let them know

    good idea Gary, I’ll try that on FB
