The Apple Watch is the best smartwatch on the market for many, offering a high-quality smartwatch experience, but that comes at a cost – literally. Starting at £379/$399, the Apple Watch Series 7 isn’t the cheapest smartwatch available in 2022.
While there might not be many Apple Watch Series 7 bargains, the deals are ripe on the (discontinued) Apple Watch Series 6, 5 and even 4, along with the Apple Watch SE and Apple Watch Series 3.
If you know where to look, there are some fantastic deals to be had from retailers such as
John Lewis and
Currys PC World in the UK, and
Best Buy in the US. Apple’s own Refurb Store offers incredible savings too, and while these are all technically second-hand, Apple’s high refurb standard means you’ll likely be unable to tell.
In this article, we share the best Apple Watch deals, discounts, and offers available this April in the UK, covering the Series 7, Series 6 and SE as well as older models including the Series 4 and 5, which have been discontinued by Apple, though it still sells the older Series 3.
You may still be able to find the Series 1 and Series 2 online and in high-street stores, and both are capable smartwatches in their own right – but because their components are older they won’t offer much future-proofing. Remember they only work with an iPhone, too: no Androids here, we’re afraid.
You may also be able to find a deal that bundles an Apple Watch for free. Read
