First-ever ‘CHEAP’ Apple Watch could launch tomorrow – shaving £200 off the price

APPLE could unveil its first-ever “cheap” Apple Watch as soon as tomorrow.

The tech giant is set to host a major gadget event on Tuesday, September 15 – and two new smartwatches may be on the menu.

Every year, Apple launches a brand new Apple Watch with a revamped design and fresh features.

This year we’re expecting the Apple Watch 6 – which will likely cost £400 or more.

But Apple is also rumoured to be preparing an Apple Watch SE.

This new Apple Watch SE is tipped to sell for as little as £199/$199.

That’s half the price of the current top model, the £399/$399 Apple Watch Series 5.

Creating a cheaper gadget wouldn’t be unprecedented for Apple.

Earlier this year, Apple unveiled the discounted iPhone SE.

This cheap alternative to the pricey iPhone 11 starts at just £419, giving budget buyers a way into the Apple ecosystem.

That’s good news for Apple, because the company is increasingly focused on getting people signed up to its various subscriptions.

The iPhone maker hopes to hook you with Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade and more.

And if you buy an iPhone or Apple Watch – even a cheaper model – then you’re still likely to spend lots of cash inside the Apple App Store.

Sadly, Apple hasn’t confirmed any plans to release a cheaper Apple Watch model.

And there’s no guarantee that the product even exists, or that it would launch on September 15.

But Apple is definitely set to announce new products this week, so anything could happen.

What’s unique about this year is that it’s unlikely we’ll see an iPhone at the September 15 event.

Normally Apple uses this occasion to showcase a new iPhone model, but it’s expected that the handset will be delayed for 2020.

Instead, we’re likely to see as many as four new iPhone models arriving in October 2020.

Importantly, some of these will be Apple’s first-ever 5G iPhones – as the company finally begins supporting ultra-fast next-gen mobile internet.

Meanwhile, Apple may also use tomorrow’s event to show off a new iPad Air, and potentially some iPhone accessories.
