One of the most popular things to buy in the Black Friday sales is a smartwatch, with items like the Apple Watch 3, Samsung Galaxy Watch and Fitbit Versa all seeing new low prices, and there are many John Lewis Black Friday deals on these wearables.

If you’re in the market for a new smartwatch, some of these Black Friday discounts may look tempting, with some devices reaching all-time-low prices. Many retailers are offering similar prices on these devices, and no shops are offering uniquely low discounts, but there’s a reason you should look to John Lewis for your new purchase.

This reason is the John Lewis guarantee, and on smartwatches you’re getting a two year free warranty that protects your device against certain issues like breakdowns. Tech can encounter unforeseen problems if you’re using it for long periods of time, and with John Lewis you know you’re covered for two years of smartwatch fun.

Tempted? We’ve gone through the John Lewis website to find all the best smartwatch deals for you.
