With one of the biggest shopping days of the season coming up in the next few days, buyers are rummaging the internet for some of the hottest buys.

Tech items are among most popular gifts on the market and right now, you'll see some incredible sales prior to Black Friday.

The Apple Watch continues to land on people's wish lists ever year, and now you can get it for a fraction of the regular price. Though it rarely goes on sale, you can find the Series 3 for under $170 at select retailers. You can also score $180 off on the Apple Watch Series 3 with GPS and cellular for a limited time.

Apple Watch Series 3

While there are many editions of the Apple Watch, the Series 3 is geared toward tracking all of your health needs.

It boasts the ability to measure the amount of calories you burn in a workout, monitor your heart rate, share your daily activity and even features a GPS system to track the distance you cover on your morning run.

"I just recently bought myself the Apple Watch Series 3 and it’s been so motivating," Courtney Gisriel, TODAY commerce editor, said. "Last year I lost about 15 pounds by focusing primarily on diet, so this year my goal was to become more active and the Apple Watch helped me get there."

As the intuitive watch closely monitors both your resting heart rate and your heart rate during strenuous activity, it can help you combat stress.

"I swear when I start to get stressed at work, the watch knows and prompts me to ‘breathe’ for a minute," Gisriel said.

If you're more of a visual person and want to see your goals laid out in front of you, plain and simple, this watch does the trick. The "three ring" tracker serves as a source of motivation to ensure that you are working toward your daily goals by encouraging you to "stand, move and exercise."

"I got my watch as a Christmas gift and wear it all the time!" Halle Proper, TODAY audience development coordinator, said. "I love to go on long runs, so setting 'Exercise' and 'Move' goals is my favorite part."

It's also great for staying on top of all those email and text alerts that come in throughout the day.

"I absolutely love my Apple Watch, it's stylish and convenient. Definitely worth the price."Amazon

Need to have that pump-up music on-the-go but don't want to drag along your phone? You can sync your Apple Music playlists to the device so that you'll never be left without your playlist.

So whether you're shopping for a tech lover, a fitness guru or simply for someone looking to manage their alerts, the Apple Watch might be the purchase that will make their holiday season one they won't forget.
