The Apple Watch Series 6 is the next step in Apple’s wearable story, adding blood oxygen monitoring, an always-on altimeter and more to an already capable smartwatch. It's a great bit of kit, offering the ability to track workouts, call emergency services if you take a tumble, provide quick access to your favourite apps and, of course, the ability to make calls and send texts from your wrist.
The problem is that, at £409 for the entry-level 44mm variant of Series 6, it certainly is not cheap.
That’s what makes a deal on the Currys eBay store so tempting, offering an 8% discount on the Apple Watch Series 6 when using code PRICE8. That brings the price of the silver and white 44mm aluminium variant down to a more palatable £376.28, making it the cheapest it's been since it was released back in September 2020. The code is set to expire on 10 November, so you'll need to act fast to get your saving.
It’s worth noting that the code applies to a bunch of products on the Currys eBay store, including the Oculus Quest 2, if you’re tempted to join the VR revolution. If you want to find out more about Oculus’ latest headset, take a look at our Oculus Quest 2 review.
We gave the Apple Watch Series 6 4 stars when we reviewed it back in October, and we were impressed not only by the quick performance, but the gorgeous always-on display and the useful health benefits that the wearable provides. Premium features like Sp02 monitoring and ECG monitoring elevate the Series 6 above the mid-range Apple Watch SE, making it the better option for the fitness-focused.
It’s not perfect though; reviewer and Tech Advisor Editor Jim Martin remarked how it still requires a charge every day, and that the sleep tracking capabilities, while new, are basic compared to much of the smartwatch competition.
Still, if you’re in the market for a capable smartwatch that’ll not only track your exercise and fitness but help improve your daily life, and you own an iPhone, the Apple Watch Series 6 is your best bet.
