Apple Watch series 6 GPS, 40mm: Was £379, now £279, Johnlewis.com
It’s not often we see deals on Apple’s newer products, so this offer is definitely one to shout about. Prior to the launch of the latest series 7, our reviewer called the series 6 the most advanced Apple watch yet. “The screen has beautifully curved corners, a big speaker, a microphone and so on,” they said. Noting the advanced health and sleep tracking features, they added that if fitness and wellness are important to you, then the series 6 is for you. It also has contactless payments, a built-in GPS, water resistance and a blood oxygen sensor. With £100 knocked off the price right now, there’s no better time to invest. And if you have an old Apple watch, trade it in and claim up to a further £120 off its value.

Currys slashes the price of Dyson’s cordless vacuum
Dyson V11 absolute cordless vacuum cleaner: Was £599, now £439, Currys.co.uk
Usually priced just shy of £600, this saving of £160 is well worth snapping up. We compared this with the V7 absolute cordless vacuum cleaner, and our reviewer said the “V11 no doubt has the edge”. They noted “you won’t have to shed out for another vacuum cleaner of any kind as it does a first-class job – as good as any corded model – even in larger homes.” Seemingly a one-size-fits-all Dyson, it’s a perfect January bargain.
