The Apple Watch is the best smartwatch on the market for many, offering a high-quality smartwatch experience, but it’s not cheap—starting at $249/£259 for the Apple Watch SE (2022 model), which is more than the now discontinued Apple Watch Series 3 was being sold for until September 2022 ($199/£179). However you don’t have to pay full price for an Apple Watch. Right now resellers are offering some fantastic deals on the Apple Watch models that Apple has just stopped selling, plus you may also be able to find a deal that bundles an Apple Watch with another device.
If it’s one of the new Apple Watches for 2022 you are after we recommend waiting a few months to see if resellers reduce the price – particularly as Black Friday approaches.
