When Apple introduced its new Apple Watch Series 2, they had also updated its first gen smartwatch that’s called the Series 1. It looks exactly the same as the first gen Apple Watch but it runs on a newer dual-core processor for faster performance.
If you don’t want to spend too much money on a smartwatch, the original first gen Apple Watch is still up to mark and it can be yours from as low as RM899. That’s cheaper than most smartwatches in the market.
First generation Apple Watch
According to authorised reseller Machines, the Apple Watch Sport 38mm is now going for only RM899 (from RM1,299), while the larger 42mm variant is now to reduced to RM1,149 (from RM1,499). This is applicable for the aluminium body based Apple Watch Sport that comes attached with either a rubber sport or woven nylon band.
If you’re looking for something more premium, the stainless steel Apple Watch with sport band is now offered at RM1,999 (from RM2,499) for the 38mm version or RM2,249 (from RM2,749) for the larger 42mm model.
