Smartwatches are getting better every year. They can now last for more than a day without a charge despite their tiny size while staying linked to your phone. Some give notifications and tell you when it’s going to rain while others can function as full-blown phones, untethered from your phone completely like the Apple Watch Series 3.

Unfortunately, Apple probably won’t discount its latest Watch on Black Friday but other retailers will. It won’t just be Apple that sees smartwatch prices get cut on the day either. Huawei, Samsung, LG and Asus will likely see prices cut at retailers like Currys PC World, Argos, John Lewis and AO.

Many other smartwatches from the likes of LG and Moto run Android Wear, while Samsung's run its own Tizen UI. Make sure your watch of choice is compatible with your phone before you buy.

Black Friday smartwatch deals 2017

What to expect

Last year the Apple Watch saw great discounts at Currys PC World, but stock ran out very quickly, while Samsung discounted its stock of its Gear S2 smartwatch. You’ll have to be quick with these deals as they don’t last very long.

Also bear in mind whether or not your phone will be compatible with the smartwatch you’re after – Apple Watch is only for iPhones, and most Android Wear watches require your phone to be of a certain age and running a certain version or later of Android.

There are also designer smartwatches that often run Android Wear from brands like Guess, D&G and Tag Heuer. They are often very expensive, so if you have your eye on one, Black Friday is the time to look out for discounts.
