Looking to snag a deal on an Apple Watch this Black Friday? You can save £90 on the series 6 in the Amazon sale right now
Black Friday 2021 is here at last. The countdown has been a whopper, with the likes of Amazon, Currys and Boots dropping early deals in the past few weeks. But the sale event is officially in full swing today, with discounts on everything from tech, laptops and gaming to mattresses, home appliances and clothing.
Owing to Apple’s reluctance to take part in sales events, its products are hot commodities during Black Friday. But for savvy shoppers looking to pick up a cheap MacBook, iPhone or iPad, you can currently find them at discounted prices thanks to third-party retailers, including John Lewis & Partners, Argos and Very.

There’s no denying that Apple leads the way when it comes to wearables, and this particular model took the top spot in our guide to the best smartwatches with The Independent’s technology critic, David Phelan writing that it is “hands down the best”. It was praised for its classy design and “immaculate build quality”.
According to Phelan, it’s “easy to control how many (or better, how few) emails, texts, calls or other notifications come through to your wrist”, and the battery life “is enough to get you through a full day”. If you’re a fitness fanatic, this model has a full suite of health sensors, including an ECG monitor to catch a misbehaving ticker, a step counter, sleep tracker, heart-rate monitor and a blood oxygen level indicator.
“It also has an always-on display, so you don’t need to raise your wrist to make the screen light up, as is the case with many smartwatches,” praised our writer. Now with a whopping 24 per cent discount, we think this would make a great gift for a loved one this Christmas.
