Apple Watch 6 has been around since September, and it's a monster hit. The Watch - easily one of the best fitness watches on the market - boasts advanced sleep tracking, the ability to track our blood oxygen levels and can even detect if you've been washing your hands for long enough (essential in this post-COVID-19 world).
Understandably as it's a brand new product, there's relatively few cut-price deals on offer right now. However, in a deal exclusive to Best Buy, the brand new Apple Watch Series 6 is being bundled with six months of Apple's new fitness service, Apple Fitness+, saving you up to $60.
Apple Fitness+ is a five-star home workout platform that's worth the hype, and syncs with your watch to display your vitals on-screen during live or archived workouts. As we're all getting fit over lockdown, it really is a first-rate service for Apple Watch owners existing and new. Check out the deal in full below:

Not only do you get Apple's most advanced smartwatch yet, complete with all-new operating system WatchOS7, but you'll get six months of Apple's new fitness service free. Get personalised workouts tailored to your goals streaming right to your other Apple devices, while the Apple Watch tracks how well you're following the plan.

This incredible deal also features on the watch's larger 44mm model. The GPS tracking and built-in altimeters on both models ensures it can handle hikes and trail running as well as any other adventure watch, while the watches themselves come in an array of colors and band types in both sizes.
Why get an Apple Watch Series 6?
This Watch is Apple's most advanced yet. The GPS model lets you take calls, reply to texts, emails and receive notifications on your wrist like any good smartwatch, but the real star is the health tracking.
Measure your blood oxygen with an all-new sensor and app, and you can check your heart rhythm with the built-in electrocardiogram. Track your daily activity on Apple Watch and see your trends in the Fitness app on iPhone
The Watch packs serious hardware, with an Always-On Retina display which is 2.5x brighter outdoors when your wrist is down. It's up to 20% faster than Series 5, with 5GHz Wi-Fi and U1 Ultra Wideband chip.
The watch is so intelligent, it can detect if you’ve taken a hard fall, then automatically call emergency services for you. The new WatchOS 7 is the icing on the cake, offering improved sleep tracking, cycling directions, updates to Siri, and new customizable watch faces.
What is Apple Fitness+?
Best Buy's exclusive deal allows you to get into Apple Fitness+ on the ground floor. A service offered by Apple to take to fight to rivals like Peloton, digital workouts are beamed to your Apple device and synced to your watch, allowing you to accurately track how well you're following along. You'll be able to see your Apple Watch's stats live in the corner of the screen as you perform the workout.
Over time, Apple Fitness+ will tailor workouts to your personal preferences and provide unique goals for you based on your workout history, offering you access to its whole library of digital classes with new workouts appearing each week.
Ordinarily, Apple Fitness+ costs $9.99 per month or $79.99 for the year, but this awesome Best Buy deal saves you up to $60 by gifting six months absolutely free.
