Those of you looking for the best Apple Watch Cyber Monday deals have come to the right place. Although the offers aren't coming until November 29 this year (the Monday after the Black Friday deals event), we're getting prepared nice and early. On this page, we'll talk you through what Apple Watch offers we expect to see, as well as our picks for the top retailers to follow and a round up of the best bargains from last year.
A new version of the popular smartwatch has been launched every year since 2015, so Cyber Monday 2021 should be a great opportunity to pick one up for a low price. We often see discounts of around $100/£100 on some of the more recent models - and you can usually save more with trade-in and gift card bonuses too.
The Apple Watch Series 6 and Apple Watch SE could both be due some big discounts now that they've been on the market for a year. The Apple Watch 7 will be released later this month which means deeper price cuts on older models and possibly a first-time price cut on Apple's latest smartwatch at this year's Black Friday sale.
It comes as no surprise that Apple was one of the most popular technology brands to purchase throughout Black Friday and Cyber Monday last year. And it's clear that whichever model you go for, Apple Watch deals are going to be amongst some of the most sought after again in 2021. Cyber Monday exceeded $10billion in revenue from online sales last year (Abode), so the appetite for a holiday bargain is still very much alive, even after the main event the Friday before.
Of course, you can pick up a whole host of Apple Watch deals throughout the year as well, and we've rounded up all the best ones to find you the biggest saving. Or if you want to wait for the Apple Watch Cyber Monday deals, bookmark this page because we'll be keeping it updated with all the best bargains when they start rolling in come November.
Cyber Monday Apple Watch Deals: FAQ
When will the best Cyber Monday Apple Watch deals start in 2021?
Cyber Monday Apple Watch deals start on Monday, November 29 this year, so keep a close eye on this date.
Like with many big sales events, you'll likely be able to find offers the weekend before the day itself too. In the past, we have seen Apple Watch Black Friday deals simply repeated on Monday, or retailers have launched completely new deals for Cyber Monday itself. However, we have also seen some discounts reduced after the sales event on Friday, leaving not such great deals for the online event on the Monday after - it really could go either way.
Our advice is to snap up any particularly strong Black Friday Apple deals over the weekend while you can, and if you do miss out, there will still be many opportunities to find a bargain again on Cyber Monday.

What Cyber Monday Apple Watch deals do we expect in 2021?
We expect the biggest savings to be on the Apple Watch Series 6 and Apple Watch SE in this year's Apple Watch Cyber Monday deals. Both launched in 2020 and saw price drops during the holiday sales last year, so we should see more significant discounts now that we're 12 months on from their release.
We're days away from the official release of the Apple Watch 7, which means we could see a first-time price cut on the smartwatch at this year's Cyber Monday sale.

Apple Watch Series 3, GPS-only, 38mm:
£279 £179 at Currys
The Series 3 version of the Apple Watch is something of a sweet spot for value and performance, and this deal saw it equal its lowest ever price. It packs in a heart-rate monitor, GPS and an 18-hour battery life. This deal was also available for the silver/white version.
£20 gift card with Apple Watch 3 at Apple
When bought directly from Apple you could get a £20 gift card last Cyber Monday. That's a similar discount to what we saw from retailers.
