If you're wondering whether you should buy the brand-new Apple Watch Series 9 now or this Black Friday, or save money by snapping up the Series 8, we've got answers for you. Of course, it's likely that the Series 8 will see some super-low prices during the year's biggest sales event (in fact, record-low prices are already in action – see below), but the 9 could see some price reductions too. In terms of specs, the 9 does have some improved features over its predecessor, but you'll need to decide if they're worth the extra cash. 

On this page, we'll list the current best prices on the Apple Watch ahead of Black Friday, give some sale predictions and then give some price context on whether you should pay out for the higher specced model.
