If you’re experiencing a post-holiday spending hangover, don’t fret! There are still plenty of Apple deals available for anybody on a budget. Score factory-refurbished Apple Watches and a popular productivity app at the best price we’ve seen. You’ll find those deals and more in this week’s best Apple deals.

Refurb Apple Watch Series 1 from $229

We often rag on Apple for not discounting products in the Apple Store (most of our deals come from resellers like Best Buy and Walmart), but we’ve always acknowledged that Cupertino’s factory-refurbished products are even better than third-party refurbs. Now you can get the best of both worlds with refurb Apple Watches Series 1, direct from the Apple Store, discounted by $40. Each system is covered by a one-year Apple warranty (the same as new units). Plus, all orders receive free shipping.

Refurb unlocked iPhone 6s 16GB for $320

Another refurb deal, this one backed by a 60-day vendor warranty, this unlocked Apple iPhone 6s will give you an almost-current-gen device for a fraction of the price of an iPhone 7. That’s a $17 drop from our mention from two days ago and the lowest total price we’ve seen for this unlocked phone in any condition. (It’s also $25 under the best price we could find for a refurb unit elsewhere, excluding other eBay vendors.) The phone is available is space gray and gold.

Beats by Dr. Dre Tour2 in-ear headphones for $50

Since Beats is owned by Apple, you can keep it in the family with these Beats by Dr. Dre Tour2 earbuds, perfect for working out or just throwing in your pocket for a commute. This is the lowest total price we’ve seen, and the best price we could find now by $15. These sweat- and water-resistant headphones feature an in-line microphone and controls, tangle-free cables, four pairs of multisize/multishape eartips, three pairs of multisize wingtips, and a hard shell case.

Duet Display for iPad and iPhone for $10

If you’re a hotshot multitasker, or just want to be, you can use Duet Display to turn your iPad or iPhone into a second monitor for your Mac or PC. This handy app is currently 50 percent off in the iTunes Store.
