Now in its fourth iteration, the Apple Watch is going from strength to strength. It's become a core part of Apple's device lineup, and is undoubtedly the king of the smartwatch market. Still, that comes with a price - quite literally, as the Apple Watch is undeniably expensive unless you can find it under a discount.

With Black Friday set for 23 November this year, now is a great time to start looking into which model is right for you so you can snag the perfect deal when the time comes. Here, we share the best Apple Watch deals for the Series 3 as well as the new Series 4.

The Series 4 is the latest Watch model and hit the shelves on 21 September. Its prices range from £399/$399 to nearly £1,500/$1,500 depending on the model you buy.

Before Series 4 came the Series 3, which is still available to buy but now at a new lower price, which starts at £279/$279.

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 won't offer much future proofing. Remember they only work with an iPhone, however: no Android here, we're afraid.

We have a dedicated guide with details everything from pricing across all models and sizes, to choosing colours, and the Watch's cellular function. It also points out the key differences between Series 3 and Series 4 and Special Edition versions. See the full guide here.

Where to buy the Apple Watch 4

The Apple Watch 4 is bigger and better than ever, so we expect it to fly off the shelves. (Find out more about what's new in our Apple Watch buying guide).

Before Black Friday, you can still get an Apple Watch for cheap. Vitality Insurance currently has a deal where you can get a Series 4 Watch for £99 upfront, and a Series 3 for £9 upfront. The catch is however, you have to stay active and earn 160 Vitality points every month through tracking your fitness – otherwise a monthly charge of £11.25 to £12.50 will apply. Go to Vitality to see more about this offer.

You can always buy the Apple Watch 4 from retailers, with prices starting at £399/$399:

We're sure more retailers will announce Black Friday deals as the date rolls in. Otherwise, Cyber Monday and Boxing Day deals are sure to follow.
