AMAZON UK has slashed the price of one of the latest Apple Watches by £80.
The price drop means you can snag the popular SE model for £219 – a great deal for Apple fans.

It’s particularly good value given that the SE is already among the cheapest Apple Watches money can buy.
The model was launched in 2020 and offers many of the smartwatch’s most valuable features at a lower price point than the Series 7 flagship.
It’s powered by the beefy S5 chip and includes an optical heart rate sensor, always-on altimeter, and fall detection.
Apple says the Gizmo is twice as fast as the Apple Watch 3 – the cheapest consumer option at £179.
This particular model is the gold version with a gold aluminum case with a 40mm Starlight Sport Band strap.
You can make a one-off payment of £249 on Amazon or spread the cost over five months.
There are only a handful left in stock at the time of writing, so snag one while you still can.
The Watch SE is a new smartwatch announced by Apple in September 2020 during a virtual event recorded at its California headquarters.

It’s cheaper than most Apple Watches at launch, in part because it lacks some of the cutting-edge features found on the pricier devices.
You can make calls and even control features with your voice.
Notifications from your iPhone come straight to your wrist, instantly alerting you to everything that’s going on – although these can be scaled down or turned off.
This model features contactless technology that allows you to make transactions using Apple Pay.
There are heaps of health and fitness features including step counting and a heart rate monitor.
You can also track your calories burned in a day and even compete with other Apple Watch-owning friends.
And it has built-in GPS to boot.
Battery life is promised at a generous 18 hours, which is enough to get you through a normal day of use.
So it’s significantly better value if you buy the watch outright.
In case you need a refresher, the Apple Watch is a smart device that offers fitness apps, weather alerts, sleep tracking, and more.
Introduced in 2013, the gadget acts largely as an extension of your iPhone, delivering notifications, making calls, and sending texts.
However, later models come with LTE connectivity (meaning they connect to cellphone towers) so they can send and receive data as standalone devices without connecting to your cellphone.
