Best Smartwatch Deals for August 2018

Best Smartwatch Deals: From the Apple Watch 3 to the Fitbit Versa, we’ve rounded up the best smartwatch deals around for you to peruse.

For consumers, there’s never been a better time to jump into the smartwatch market. Despite how it might have started, the industry is no longer dominated solely by products from Apple and Samsung, giving you a plethora of options to choose from as you find the smartwatch that’s right for you.

Of course, having to wade through all of the competing brands and then compare their prices is a hell of a lot of legwork – legwork that we’re more than happy to do. For instance, one of the best smartwatch deals we can find right now is a massive £90.99 saving on the Huawei Watch 2 Sport.

Best Smartwatch Deals – Overall

Apple Watch Series 3 Cellular - Black, 38 mm

The latest Apple Watch complete with LTE connectivity. Save £30 by using the code APP30 at the checkout.

Huawei Watch 2 Sport Smartwatch - Black

£189 is an amazing price given that the Huawei Watch 2 boasts NFC and Andoird pay compatibility, alongside a plethora of fitness tracking features. A true bargain.

Fitbit Unisex Versa Health and Fitness Smartwatch

With the best battery life of any touch screen smartwatch right now, the Fitbit Versa is an excellent purchase at this reduced price.

For anyone after a smartwatch with robust activity tracking features, you can do far worse than the Huawei Watch 2. The watch boasts a consistently accurate heart rate sensor and detailed training plans right on your wrist.

One of the downsides of the Huawei Watch 2 however is its battery life. The watch can power through two days on a single charge but even so, it’s nice not to have to another device constantly taking up your local charging ports. For those after a longer battery life, the FitBit Versa can run for up to four days without any major concern. Amazon currently has a £15.52 discount on the Versa, bringing it very close in price to the Huawei Watch 2.

Before diving headfirst into anymore of these deals, we’ve divided them by the key factor that’ll likely determine your purchase: the watch’s operating system.

Wear OS (Samsung, Huawei, LG, etc.)

Previously known as Android Wear, Google’s OS for smartwatches is a dream come true for customising your watch’s interface. It is currently the most widely adopted smartwatch OS on the market and as such, it has a huge amount of support from third-party developers.

Best Wear OS Smartwatch Deals

Huawei Watch 2 Sport Smartwatch - Black

£189 is an amazing price given that the Huawei Watch 2 boasts NFC and Android pay compatibility, alongside a plethora of fitness tracking features. A true bargain.

Fossil Gen 3 Smartwatch Q Explorist

The Explorist might not be the most feature packed smartwatch on the market but it is one of the most stylish. Smartwatches of this design tend to go for a far higher price.

Samsung Gear Fit 2 Pro

Designed specifically with fitness in mind, the Gear Fit 2 is unobtrusive and a great companion to have during your workout.

LG Watch Style Smartwatch

Much like the Fossil Explorist, the LG Watch Style lives for its namesake in a gorgeous titanium shell that screams luxury. Now with £20 off.

Unlike Apple’s Watch OS, watch faces can be customised relentlessly with Wear OS, giving you access to more information at a glance and saving you from having to scroll through various pages.

Wear OS also supports the use of Google Assistant which is still one of the best AI’s on the market due to its gigantic resource of information. It goes without saying that watches utilising Wear OS tend to be much cheaper than the Apple Watch, but there are still deals to be had on the latter if you’re set on buying one.

Watch OS (Apple Watch)

The OS powering all of Apple’s smartwatches is an ode to luxury. The system adheres to a minimalist design, leaving all clutter behind and giving the watch a clean and clear look that is undeniably fashionable.

Best Apple Watch Series 3 Deals – GPS + LTE

Apple Watch Series 3 42mm GPS + LTE

A brilliant saving of £30 from Curry's with the code APP30.

Apple Watch Series 3 38mm GPS + LTE

The latest Apple Watch complete with LTE connectivity. Save £30 by using the code APP30 at the checkout.

The lowest price of entry for buying an Apple Watch 3 right now. Going through John Lewis also nabs you a two-year warranty.

Best Apple Watch Series 1 Deals

Apple Watch Series 1 38mm

Apple Watch Series 1 White 42mm

Apple has made a huge push to market its watch as the go-to fitness accessory, and it shows. The Apple Watch’s Activity Rings keep fitness tracking simple while still providing you with all the details you want at the flick of a wrist.

Taking a step back from the OS, it’s hard to deny that the Apple Watch is pretty damn stylish. Sure, it might look like a miniature version of the obelisk from 2001: A Space Odyssey, but its bold nature only adds to its desirability. For the Apple Watch Series 3, you can expect to fork out a hefty sum but the Series 1 model can now be obtained for a fraction of the price.

Other (Fitbit, smartwatch hybrids, etc.)

This is where we’ve collated the best deals on smartwatches that don’t run Wear OS or Watch OS, the renegades that have made a name for themselves through other means. Fitbits fall into this category as they use their own in-house operating system. Similarly, you’ll also find hybrid watches here that incorporate some smartwatch features but retain the design of a traditional analogue watch – handy for any technophobes out there.

As close to a traditional watch that a smartwatch could ever be, and now with over half price off. A ridiculous saving by any standard.
