The best Apple Watch deals could save you some serious money, so it's worth taking a little time to check them out. To make it easier for you, we've brought all the best Apple Watch deals together here in one post. 

If you're still too short of money even with these deals, though, don't worry. Given that the Apple Watch 6 is likely to be released this autumn, there may well be further discounts on earlier versions in a couple of months' time. In particular, we're expecting some great Apple Watch Black Friday deals to come our way in November. 

Which Apple Watch is best for you?

The first thing to decide is which Apple Watch you want to go for. With no release date for the Apple Watch 6 yet, the Apple Watch 5 is the most current and up-to-date model. That means you'll get the latest features, but you probably won't get the biggest saving. 

You're likely to get a bigger discount on the Apple Watch 4, and to be honest it's not that much different from the 5. You won't get the compass and an always-on screen, but if those don't particularly interest you, you may as well opt for the lower-cost option.

Cheaper still, the Apple Watch 3 isn't without its strengths either, especially as it includes the option to have GPS and cellular connections. We're expecting some very decent Apple Watch Black Friday deals on these older models this autumn, but at the same time there are some pretty good discounts available at the moment, which you'll find below.

Do note that all these different Apple Watches come in different sizes: 38mm and 42mm for Series 3 or older, and 40mm or 44mm for Series 4 and 5. That will make a difference, for instance, when it comes to choosing the best Apple Watch bands. And some Apple Watch apps will only work on newer versions of the Apple Watch too.

With all that in mind, read on to find the retailers most likely to offer the best Apple Watch deals, followed by the best Apple Watch deals available right now, looking at each series version in turn. 

Which retailers often offer Apple Watch deals?

Best Apple Watch Series 5 deals available now

The Apple Watch 5 has new display technology allowing for an always-on screen mode. In layman's terms, that means you can actually look at your watch and see the time without pressing anything. You know, like you would with a traditional watch. 

There are two new finishes to choose from – titanium and ceramic – plus a stack of new watchOS features. And with prices starting at $399 for the 40mm GPS model, it's still within the realms of affordability.

In terms of discounts, the most you're likely to get off an Series 5 Apple Watch is around £20 / $20, which we're pretty happy to snap up at the moment if we're honest. You might find better Apple Watch Black Friday deals come November... but you might not, so is it really worth waiting?

Best Apple Watch Series 4 deals available now

The Apple Watch 4 has a bigger screen, an improved speaker and a dial that's more pleasing to use than the older models. It also has health features such as a heart rate monitor, Fall Detection and Emergency SOS capabilities.

As the first Apple Watch with a tweaked design since the launch of the first model, it's much sought after. But that doesn't mean you can't get a discount. Last November, we saw a lot of very good Apple Watch Black Friday deals, and there a range of discounts on this slightly older Apple Watch today.

There are also other versions of the Series 4 Watch to add an extra degree of style, namely the Nike and Hermes collections.

Best Apple Watch Series 3 deals available now

In 2019, we saw some sweet bargains on the Series 3, including some especially good Apple Watch Black Friday deals. The most exciting thing about the Apple Watch 3 on launch was the introduction of Cellular, which meant it could be used without an iPhone or Wi-Fi, taking its capabilities to a whole new level. 

The Series 3 doesn't have quite the same speed or swish design as the Series 4, but it's still works well and looks good. So if you don't want to spend a lot, then this could be the model for you. See below for the best prices in your area today.

There's also a Series 3 + Nike collection available. 

Best Apple Watches Series 1 & 2 deals available now

The cheapest Apple Watches are the Series 1 and 2 models, which lack the finesse and power of the Series 3 and 4 models. They've now been discontinued by Apple, but that means you can pick them up for an especially cheap price on places like Ebay.
