If you're after a cheap Apple Watch Series 5, you're in luck because this double serving of discounts is still live through the Black Friday weekend.

Not only is there $20 off the usual price, right now Prime members also get a further $24.01 taken off at checkout. That brings the price down $44.01 and the biggest savings yet on this year's Apple Watch model. These extra savings at checkout don't typically stick around for very long, so we expect it to disappear at a moment's notice.

If you're not already a Prime member, simply take out a 30-day free trial to unlock the extra $24.01 discount. Simple.

Frankly, we hadn't expect any substantial savings on the new Series 5. The real headline-grabbing Black Friday Apple Watch deal was to date reserved for the Series 3. But a $44 saving on the newest Apple Watch is nothing to be sniffed at.

The biggest addition, and the one that will tell the world you're sporting the newest model, is the always-on display. Now you don't have to wake the screen to actually see the time. That actually makes a big difference.

Other improvements over older Apple Watch models include a built-in compass for the first time, so that means improved navigation from your wrist. Always useful.

Otherwise, all the features we've grown to love are included, such as ECG readings, fall detection, built-in GPS, heart rate monitoring and plenty of watchOS apps. Needless to say we're big fans, awarding the Apple Watch Series 5 a 4.5/5 review. If you're an iPhone owner, it's the smartwatch you should buy.

We don't know how long this doubled-up discount will last, so if you're after a new Apple Watch, grab this before it's gone.
