Apple Watch 3 pre-orders are now live – here’s how to grab yours today

It’s easy to see why the Apple Watch is the most popular smartwatch around. It’s an ideal companion to the ever popular iPhone, tethering your digital life to your wrist with a stylish twist.

You can do worlds more than simply view your iPhone messages and notifications on the Apple Watch. There’s also health and fitness tracking, built in GPS and a slick reel of apps to keep you busy. It’s probably closer to a superhero’s spy gadget than a timepiece, which is reason if anything to get kitted out with one.

Although prices for the watch don’t seem to shift considerably from retailer to retailer, they do vary depending on which version you intend to buy. Series 1 is the first-gen revamped, Series 2 is the most recent version, and then there’s the all-new Apple Watch 3, which was recently unveiled alongside the iPhone 8 and Apple TV 4K.

Want to get the latest and greatest Apple Watch? Here’s where you can pre-order it in the UK right now – you don’t even have to pay an upfront cost!

No need for endless scrolling, here are all the most worthwhile deals out there right now…

Apple Watch Deals – Series 1 vs Series 2

The Series 1 and Series 2 watches are visually fairly similar. The first series uses stainless steel and sports a sapphire crystal display. Sports editions used anodised aluminium casing, while the Hermes and Watch Edition models are perfect for those with the deepest of pockets.

In terms of features, the latest series offers high levels of water-resistance, a brighter screen and improved performance across the board. Make sure you’re using An iPhone 5 or later in order to be able to use the watch.

Apple Watch Deals – Size options

Consider the size of your wrist and how large or small you would like the watch to appear before you choose a model. While traditional watches are measured horizontally, Apple measures its watch vertically. The smaller size has a 38mm height while the larger sits at 42mm. In terms of function they are identical, although you might find it a little trickier to use the smaller screen on the 38mm version.
