What's a good price for Apple Watch Series 5?

There have been some great Apple Watch 5 deals over Christmas, but we've been covering the best Apple Watch Series 5 prices long enough to be able to give you a good idea of the price range you should be expecting at normal trading times. The truth is, the very best deals that you're going to find on the Apple Watch Series 5 are for renewed models on Amazon. Now, these are always guaranteed, and we've seen the GPS only model go for as low as $249, so that's definitely an option. 

However, if renewed isn't for you, the lowest Apple Watch Series 5 price that we've seen on Amazon was down to $329/£319. That was a record low - $70/£80 under the retail price - and to be honest, we haven't seen it drop down to that low since 2020. 

If you're going for the GPS and cellular version, we're seeing it go for around $749 these days over at Amazon - bizarrely higher than the retail price of $499/£499 - so we don't advise going for that model. 

Apple Watch 5 vs 6: which one is better?

The Apple Watch Series 5 brought the always on screen. The Apple Watch Series 6 is basically the same as the 5, but with a couple more features, including faster charging time (around 40% faster than the 5). The battery life is the same at 18 hours, the design is pretty much identical, and both sport a 368 х 448 resolution display, with the same brightness.

Where they differ, is the health features of the Apple Watch Series 6. You get a blood oxygen sensor with the 6, which you don't get with the 5. The Apple Watch Series 6 also includes 5GHz Wi-Fi support, meaning that it'll be faster over wi-fi than the 5.
