In a move that echoes their decision to sell refurbished iPhones, Apple’s started providing Apple Watches on their site at pretty reasonably discounted rates. The most affordable options, as you’d expect, are their Series 1 releases, most of which hover between $229 and $249, but you’ll find reductions on Series 2 prices as well. If you stick to Series 1, there’s no shortage of choice.  Gold, rose gold, and aluminum cases are all available, all with different bands. The $30 price difference seems to come from the size case you choose, with 38mm being cheaper than the 42mm. This is definitely one of the least risky ways to buy an Apple Watch, and it seems like that’s exactly who Apple’s trying to attract to their product. It’s been unexpectedly difficult for them to convert people to buying wearables, so if they can make the product a little more enticing, maybe people will start to come around.

BlackPods-CM-IF2-2-12

AirPods, Apple’s popular wireless headphones, get a fresh look thanks to BlackPods, a company that paints real Apple AirPods using a proprietary painting and finishing process. Available in matte black, space gray or high-gloss black finish, each pair is hand-finished and tested. Whether you’re sending in yours or ordering new, combining the flexibility of wireless headphones with the sleek and luxurious BlackPods look will make plain old white AirPods seem boring by comparison. Better yet, BlackPods gives you $30 off your order by joining their e-mail list. It’s time to upgrade.
