New Apple Watch slashed to £249 in rare deal – how to get it today

A RARE deal on one of the latest Apple Watches has slashed £20 off its asking price.

The price drop on Amazon UK bags you the popular SE model for £249 – a cracking deal for gadget nuts.

It's especially good value, as the SE is already among the cheapest Apple Watches that money can buy.

The model launched in 2020 and boasts many of the smartwatch's most prized features at a friendlier price than the flagship Series 7.

It's powered by the beefy S5 chip and includes an optical heart rate sensor, an always-on altimeter, and fall detection.

According to Apple, the gizmo is twice as fast as the Apple Watch 3 – the cheapest option available to consumers at £179.

This particular model is the Gold version with a Gold Aluminium Case with a Starlight Sport Band band in 40mm sizing.

You can make a one-time payment of £249 with Amazon, or spread the cost out over five months.

At the time of writing, there are only a handful left in stock, so grab one while you still can.

The Watch SE is a new smartwatch announced by Apple in September 2020 during a virtual event recorded at its headquarters in California.

It's cheaper than most Apple Watches have been at launch, in part because it's missing some of the pricier gadgets' bleeding-edge features.

You can make phone calls, and even control features using your voice.

Notifications from your iPhone come directly to your wrist, alerting you instantly to anything going on – although these can be scaled back or switched off.

This model features contactless tech that lets you make transactions using Apple Pay.

There are loads of health and fitness features, including step counting and a heart-rate monitor.

You can also track your calories burned in a day, and even compete with other pals who own an Apple Watch.

And it's got built-in GPS to boot.

Battery life is promised at a generous 18 hours, which is enough to get you through a regular day of usage.

So it's significantly better value for money if you buy the watch outright.

In case you need a refresh, the Apple Watch is a smart device that offers fitness apps, weather alerts, sleep tracking and more.

Launched in 2013, the gadget largely works as an extension of your iPhone, delivering notifications, making calls and sending texts.

However, later models have come with LTE connectivity (that means they link up to mobile network towers), allowing them to send and receive data as standalone devices without connecting to your mobile.
