Finally ready to hop on the wearable bandwagon? Well here’s a great Apple Watch deal to get you started.
Currys has discounted the Apple Watch Sport (38mm, Space Grey & Black) by £70, bringing the price down from £259 to just £189.
The Apple Watch features a 1.7-inch OLED touchscreen, Bluetooth 4.0, an optical heart rate sensor, a large range of compatible straps, support for Siri, and a built-in microphone and speaker. It runs on Apple’s watchOS software, and receives regular updates from Apple.
What we said
We gave the Apple Watch a 6/10 score when it launched, praising its attractive design, Force Touch feature, useful Digital Crown input, and its high comfort factor. Here’s our verdict:
“The Apple Watch is the most beautiful smartwatch around – it’s head and shoulders above anything Google and its Android Wear partners have come up with.”
What owners say
On Currys, the Apple Watch Sport has a 9.2/10 score based on 333 user reviews. Users wrote:
“Lots of great features, comfortable to wear, and looks good.”
“Can accept and make phone calls; can fast forward/rewind music being played on your iPhone; can use Apple Pay; easy to change bands; when charging on its side, acts as a night clock; can see time in the dark.”
“Love the fitness apps. Makes you aware of how much or how little exercise you are doing.”

How good a deal is this?
This is a great deal, because it’s very rare to find discounts on Apple products. It’s worth noting that the Apple Watch is only discounted because of the recent Apple Watch Series 2 launch, however. But remember that this stock clearance means these original Apple Watches will disappear fast – many of the variants on Currys have already sold out.
If you’re looking for an original Apple Watch, this is the best price you’ll get – and it’s a ruddy good one too. Don’t forget that many of the new features of the Apple Watch Series 2 are shared by the Apple Watch, since they both run on the same watchOS 3 software.
