Apple Watch deal: Save £50 and get free two-year guarantee

‘Tis the season to buy a new wearable, or so retailers hope, anyway.

John Lewis is offering a great bargain on the Apple Watch, just in time for Christmas.

Apple’s first-ever smartwatch is on sale with the retailer for just £249, as spotted by a Hot UK Deals member.

Buying an Apple Watch from Apple’s own online store will cost you £299.

That means you’re making a solid saving of £50 with this deal.

What’s more, John Lewis is bundling in a free two-year guarantee with any Apple Watch purchase.

The Apple Watch was first made available on 24 April this year – just seven months ago.

It’s Apple’s only smartwatch to date, offering fitness tracking, dedicated apps, and the new watchOS software.

We gave the Apple Watch a 6/10 in our review, praising its design, controls and comfort.
