Best Apple Watch deals for Black Friday 2021

(Pocket-lint) - If you're looking to take the smartwatch plunge and the Apple Watch is the model you've decided is the best one for you and your iPhone, there's no better time to buy than during the Black Friday sales[1]. It's rare to find Apple devices discounted throughout the year but there is normally a small percentage off Apple Watch during the Black Friday sales, and let's face it, any money saved is better than none. We're going to be following all the Apple Watch deals for Black Friday and Cyber Monday right here to make sure you get the best price possible.

When are the Black Friday sales?

Black Friday takes place every year the day after Thanksgiving, which is on a Thursday.

For 2021, that places it on Friday 26 November, with Cyber Monday then taking place on 29 November. It's not just Black Friday itself and the weekend following it that you need to be watching out for deals on though. Typically, deals start to appear in the middle of November and the week running up to Black Friday so there are bargains to be had before the big day.

It's worth paying attention a couple of weeks before Black Friday to make sure you don't miss any of the early deals. 

What Apple Watch deals are we expecting?

There have been some great deals on the Apple Watch over the last few years around Black Friday. Typically these deals have been for the last generation, which this year will be the Apple Watch Series 6[2]. That said, there are sometimes deals on the current models too, like the Apple Watch SE[3].

We're expecting the same for 2021, and we expect that the stainless steel GPS & Cellular models will see the biggest discounts, though we wouldn't be surprised to see deals on the standard aluminium GPS models either.

We'll be adding the best Apple Watch deals we find over the Black Friday sales live as and when they appear, but it's always worth checking out retailers sites too, all of which will likely offer discounts off various models and colours of the Apple Watch.
