Just like for used phones, a cottage industry is emerging to resell old Apple and Samsung watches.

Apple and Best Buy offer trade-in programs, but they pay less than dedicated trade sites like Trademore and DeCluttr, which offer about 40% of the original price, depending on the condition of your device.

The Series 5 Apple Watch, first released in 2019, originally sold for $399 with a 40mm watch face, or $499 with cellular connectivity, while the Series 3 originally sold for $329 when it was released in 2017, with $399 for the cellular version. Last year, Apple dropped the price to $199, just for the standard version. A cellular option isn’t available.

This year’s Series 6 replaces the Series 5 for the same price as last year’s model, and has a few new features, most notably a blood oxygen reader.
