The Apple Watch SE is one of the best smartwatches available today, thanks to the smart way it connects and combines with your iPhone, and its excellent health and fitness features, including activity tracking and a fall detector that can call the emergency services if you have an accident.
It's also the cheapest Apple Watch in the current range – and now it's even cheaper, thanks to a couple of great deals we've spotted. It's now available for just £229 at Amazon and Argos, which is the cheapest it's ever been.

In our Apple Watch SE review, we said: "The Apple Watch SE is as slick as the higher-priced Watches, and delivers all the essential features and then some."
Apple Watch SE: was £249, now £229 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
This £20 saving brings the Apple Watch SE to the lowest price it's ever been. You can get it with a 40mm screen, or upgrade to the 44mm for a slightly higher price. You get a lightweight aluminium case and comfortable silicone band, in various colour options. The Apple Watch SE offers all the advantages of watchOS 8, including cool faces, apps and notifications on your wrist. It also has a heart rate sensor, activity tracking and a fall detection feature that can call an ambulance on your behalf if you have an accident.
Compared to the more expensive Apple Watch Series 7, there are some things the Apple Watch SE doesn't give you: specifically, the larger always-on screen, the ECG sensor, and the pulse oxygen sensor. But considering the huge price difference, these feel like fair trade-offs – when it comes to the core Apple Watch experience, you get the same from SE as the pricier model.
