Is Black Friday a good time to buy an Apple Watch?

We think so! If an Apple Watch isn't on your Christmas wish list then we wouldn't be surprised if it's on a loved one's list. Whether you're looking to buy one for yourself or someone else we think Black Friday is a great time to bite the bullet and make the purchase.

The best smartwatches are a considerable investment but when you get them during a shopping event as big as Black Friday you know retailers are going to be competing to make the most sales. We have already seen this happen across Apple Watch products between sites like Amazon and Best Buy so take advantage of the competition and swipe up an Apple Watch deal whilst you still can this weekend.

There are plenty more deals happening such as the best Garmin Black Friday deals we have carefully selected for you or totally scrap Amazon and see what is worth buying in the Dick's Sporting Goods Black Friday sale.
