Black Friday has been and gone but that doesn't mean the deals have dried up. It's now Cyber Monday and that means its a great time to pick up the Apple Watch SE if you've been eyeing it! We're seeing discounts on new, refurbished, and LTE models on contract.
Apple announced the Watch SE at its Time Flies event in September 2020, introducing the first-ever budget-friendly Apple Watch alongside the top-range Watch Series 6.
Keeping in line with Apple's SE-range 'lite' ethos, the Watch SE offer simplified features while doing away with bonuses like an always-on display.
It's been over a year since the Watch SE launched, so there are plenty of discounts around.
In fact, with the launch of the Apple Watch Series 7, Apple has also reduced the starting price of the Watch SE by £20 in the UK. Check out the best Apple Watch 7 deals here.
Here we're looking at the Apple Watch SE pricing, models, and where you can pick one up at the best price this Black Friday/Cyber Monday period.
Keep in mind, with the release of the Watch Series 7 (see the best Watch 7 deals) Watch Series 6 prices are also dropping. For the best Watch Series 6 Black Friday deals go here, and if you want to see which models are now discounted due to the new releases, we're also monitoring the best Apple Watch deals separately.
