The new Apple Watch Series 2 has arrived, which means last year’s Apple Watch is now available at a decent price.
Argos has discounted the Apple Watch from £259 to £199, saving you a respectable £60 on Apple’s first ever smartwatch. You can grab the deal in various colour, band, and size options too. The one we’ve linked to is the 38mm Space Grey Case and Black Woven Strap option.
The Apple Watch features a 1.7-inch OLED touchscreen, Bluetooth 4.0, an optical heart rate sensor, a large range of straps, Siri support, and a built-in microphone and speaker for making calls.
What we said
We gave the Apple Watch a 6/10 score, praising its design, Force Touch functionality, and how comfortable it was to wear. 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 Argos, the Apple Watch has a 4.9/5 score based on 3 user reviews. Users wrote:
“If you are hooked on Apple products like me, you will love to get an Apple Watch.”
“Very useful product.”
“At £199, this is much better value than before. Not enough specification difference to the new Series 2 Watch to justify the price difference.”

How good a deal is this?
It’s usually very difficult to find discounted Apple products, so that’s why this is a particularly good deal. While the Apple Watch in this particular deal might be from the last generation, it’s by no means old. Plus, it will still run on the latest watchOS 3 software, which includes a number of performance improvements. At £199, this is a steal.
