Pick up a smartwatch deal on Cyber Monday and you are in line for some serious savings, with big discounts from top brands including Apple and Samsung.
Not every deal is a good deal, of course. Some retailers offer tiny discounts and make them look better than they are, or they sell at a sale price which is still higher than that of their competitors, or higher than it has been earlier in the year.
If you’ve got your heart set on the Apple Watch, it’s rare to find big discounts on the latest model. In fairness, it has only just been released. But if you are happy to get a slightly older model, that’s where the savings start getting exciting. We’ll only include Apple Watch deals here that we would buy ourselves.
We also wouldn’t tell you about a big discount on a rubbish smartwatch. We review these devices week in, week out, and some of them are not good deals at any price.
We’ve separately rounded up the best smartwatches on the market in our chart. You can also check out other top Cyber Monday deals on right now in our Cyber Monday deals hub.
Cyber Monday is officially held on November 28, but the deals have already begun.

What to look out for in a Cyber Monday smartwatch deal
All the deals we list in this article have been chosen by editorial staff at Tech Advisor because we believe they are genuinely good deals. We won’t list discounts that are very small, or products we don’t think are good.
It’s tempting to buy something just because there is a little bit of money off – so you should ask yourself if it’s a smartwatch you would be willing to pay full price for, or have wanted for a while. It’s one thing to save money on something you have wanted, it’s another entirely to spend hundreds on something on a whim.
It’s worth using a price checking site such as PriceSpy in the UK to see if what you’re about to buy has been cheaper in the past or is cheaper elsewhere.
In the US or UK you can also use CamelCamelCamel, the free Amazon price tracker, to see if the saving on the item you want is legit, or if a retailer is trying to make it look like a better deal than it is. Unfortunately it is common for retailers to raise the price right before Cyber Monday so they can then put it down and claim a discount.
