The truth about Apple Watch Black Friday deals

Are you already on the lookout for holiday gifts in October? Then you probably know that many companies slowly increase their prices leading up to Black Friday 2022, in order to offer you “bigger” discounts when the sale hits. Don’t let the alleged bargains and special offers over the next few months fool you! 

Let's take a quick look at the differences between the Apple Watch 6 and Apple Watch 7, and consider whether a refurbished model from a recent series is really much different than a new Apple Watch.

Did you know: Every year Apple releases a new Apple Watch series with minimal changes.  Each time, valuable raw materials used for manufacturing new devices are extracted from the earth, but they’re getting scarcer every year. Apple's widespread marketing campaigns lead people to believe their working Apple Watches are "obsolete" and these perfectly good devices disappear into the far corners of drawers. 

We're here to spread the word that you don't always have to grab the latest model (feel free to ditch the new Apple Watch Ultra too). When you compare the latest Apple Watch model to its predecessor, it’s clear that not much has changed. With refurbished Apple Watch deals, you can do the environment a favor and you’ll get an unbeatable price-performance ratio.

👉 TL;DR: Don’t buy an Apple Watch during Black Friday unless it's refurbished!
