    Is there a reputable seller of Refrub apple watches? Since it sounds like next week's event will not be unleashing a new model on us, I am thinking I might just buy a refurb/preowned for now til the new one comes out.

    I know BestBuy sells them, don't know if they carry them in stores or not but they are listed online. A quick Google search shows numerous places as selling refurbs but I don't know how reliable any of them are.

    Best Buy was the only place I knew of for sure, and I was hoping there was another option.

    I have no idea what that is. Is that a reliable site?

    Sure is. Been around a long time don't know who they are refurb by but I've seen them in my email. Looks like they only have 38mm right now.

    3/21 is an Apple event that may announce new/updated ones but nobody really knows for sure. I'd wait until at least then at this point unless you find a good deal on one.

    If new ones are announced on 3/21 I bet the current ones will drop even further. or that 'killer feature' is on the new ones and you get that one for full retail

    From everything I've seen across the interwebs new bands and probably the release of watchOS 2.2 are about all anyone is expecting next week. However we can always hope!

    I'll take it close enough to wait if you're in the market.

    The VERY reliable phone trading/selling site swappa has a watch section also. I sold my Moto 360 there to a very happy customer. (Rocking an Apple Watch myself now)

    Well, I am curious to see if the prices drop now on the stainless model, with the sport one going down like it did....

    It appears not. Just the sport model went down in cost. One option is to get the sport model and then get an after market (knock off) 3rd party stainless band. I found a VERY good one on Amazon for around 40 bucks....

    I purchased a rose gold refurbished 42mm from Woot. It works great and arrived one week sooner than the estimated delivery date. Overall, very happy I went through them
