Answer:
Answer:

Discontinued is like last years model car is no longer made, but you can still drive it.


The Same with the Apple Watch series 4. They are not making them any more, but you can still use it, you can upgrade to watchOS 6 in a month, you can get service, the electricity to charge it is still compatible, etc...


If your Series 4 is less than 14 days old, you can return it if it is in excellent condition for a full refund.

apple sells older phones too at lower price points so that it can maintain a strong market position


lot of arms that need a watch and selling S3 cheap is one way to win over more users


did not see new pricing for S4 though

Make sure you boss follows these instructions before transferring the Apple Watch to you

Another reason may be manufacturing capacity. Since the Aluminum and Stainless Steel cases are the same, they can stop Series for production, and switch those lines to Series 5 and provide more Series 5 units when demand is highest in the next few months. The Series 3 has different case size, so that equipment can continue producing Series 3 watches without affecting Series 5 production.
