Black Friday 2023

Deciding between an Apple Watch Series 6 or Apple Watch Series 7 on Black Friday?

Apple Watch and Black Friday

Are you one of those people who are already on the lookout for Christmas gifts at the beginning of October? Then you probably also know that many companies are slowly increasing their prices until Black Friday 2023, only to then offer you “higher” discounts. So don't let the alleged bargains and special offers over the next few months fool you! Let's take a quick look at what the differences between the Apple Watch 6 and Apple Watch 7 are, and consider whether a refurbished model from one of the past years is sufficient instead of a new Apple Watch.

🚨 Did you know: Every year Apple releases a new Apple Watch series with minimal changes, in which valuable raw materials are extracted from the earth each time, which are becoming scarcer every year. As a result of Apple's immense marketing campaigns, thousands of working Apple Watches are labelled as "obsolete" and disappear in the far corners of drawers.

We're here to tell you that you don't always have to grab the latest model and feel free to ditch the new Apple Watch Ultra. Because, as always, it is not only worthwhile because of the environmental aspect, but also because of the unbeatable price-performance ratio

👉Reading tip: Don’t buy an Apple Watch during Black Friday. Unless it's refurbished!
