Buy A Cheap Apple Watch Series 4 In Amazon’s Black Friday Sale

Black Friday has properly kicked off with a very worthwhile deal – £100 off the Apple Watch Series 4. Amazon has reduced the price on the 40mm from £399 to £299 and the 44mm from £429 to £329, the cheapest it’s ever been and one serious bargain.

That’s because it’s rare to find a significant discount on an Apple Watch, even on models that have been surpassed by new launches. While the Series 4 is now the newest but one, the differences between it and the recently-released Series 5 are smaller than you might expect. The Series 5 adds an always-on screen, very useful when you’re running or cycling and want to glance at your stats, but not the major upgrade the Series 4 was compared with the Series 3. The Series 4 also runs the latest watchOS so you won’t miss out on any future software improvements. 

The Series 4 was the first Apple Watch to nail heart rate tracking when exercising and it was the first consumer tracker to offer the ability to take an electrocardiogram (ECG). That means you can set the Watch to take periodic measurements and flag an irregular heartbeat. If it finds one, it’s certainly something to raise with your GP who can conduct further tests.

As long as you’re an iPhone user, the Apple Watch is simply the best smartwatch, offering genuinely useful services like keeping electronic versions of tickets to hand and making contactless payments. It’s also a top-notch fitness tracker, and while its native software may not be the match of a specialist like Garmin, you’ll find a third-party app to suit your needs in the well-stocked App Store. 

The Series 3’s RRP was reduced to £199 after the launch of the Series 5, pitting it against smartwatches like the Fitbit Versa 2 (a match up the Series 3 wins handily), the differences between the Series 3 and Series 4 mean we have no hesitation calling this Amazon Black Friday deal the best way to get your hands on a cheap Apple Watch. If you’ve been eyeing one up but have been put off by the £399 starting price, it’s unlikely you’ll do much better in the foreseeable future.
