If you're after the latest Apple Watch Series 6, here's where you can find all the best deals. Plus with spring sales kicking off, you're likely to find even more sweet deals on the latest Apple Watch.
While the Apple Watch Series 6 is just a few months old, we're already seeing money off the new smartwatch. This month, there's at least £30 off from all retailers!
The device launched alongside the budget-friendly Watch SE at Apple's Time Flies special event on Tuesday 15 September, 2020. Both are available to buy directly from Apple but if you want a deal on the Apple Watch 6, you're better off going to other retailers. See the best Watch SE deals here.
In February 2021, Apple also released the Black Unity Aluminum Case with Sport Band limited edition Watch Series 6 in honour of Black History Month in the US. The device features a custom "Black Unity" laser-etched crystal on the back, along with a Pan-African flag inspired sport band.

Where to get refurbished deals on Apple Watch 6
Another way to get an excellent deal on the Apple Watch (while being environmentally conscious!) is to buy refurbished. Refurbished products may show some signs of wear in some cases, but are thoroughly tested and repaired to work just like new. The quality of the repair will vary depending on the retailer, so makes sure that anything you buy is backed with a warranty.
Most refurbished resellers will offer a one year warranty that offers technical support and repairs should you run into any problems.
The best place to buy a refurbished Apple Watch is directly from Apple's Refurbished Store, where every product is Apple Certified refurbished. An Apple Certified refurbishment means it's virtually indistinguishable from buying new – except the price is much lower.
Apple promises a one year warranty, free delivery and returns. Each refurbished Apple Watch undergoes full functional testing and a thorough clean and comes with the original OS or a more recent version as well as all the accessories and cables you'd need.
The only downside to the Apple Refurbished Store is you're less likely to find the newest models, like the Series 6. Instead, you might want to go to other retailers like Music Magpie or buy Amazon Renewed, both of which also test and repair pre-owned devices thoroughly to ensure it works like new. Both also offer a one year warranty.
What's new in the Apple Watch 6?
For starters, the new Apple Watch will include a blood oxygen sensor in a bid to help battle Covid-19. The feature should also help manage asthma and heart complications. The oxygen sensor uses LED lights to measure the colour of your blood to understand whether your O2 levels are healthy.
The Watch 6 will also feature new watch faces, and under the hood the smartwatch gets a new 6th generation Apple S6 chip which should be 20% faster than the Watch Series 5. If you want to read more read our Apple Watch 5 vs Apple Watch 6 comparison.
