Nokia 8 pre-orders in the UK come with free smartwatch

Nokia 8 is about to hit the shelves in many European countries, but if you haven't yet placed your pre-order here is an interesting deal aimed at customers in the UK.

Carphone Warehouse has the Nokia 8 up for pre-order for just £499.99, an excellent price for a flagship smartphone like this one. According to the UK retailer, the device will be available on September 13.

Moreover, those who pre-order either the Silver or Blue versions of the smartphone will get a free Nokia smartwatch worth £119.99. The Nokia Steel smartwatch includes many health and fitness related features. It's also waterproof (up to 50m), so you will be able to track your swimming sessions if that's what you want.

Nokia Steel can be synced to the Health Mate application, which enables users access to coaching, insights, leaderboards, and reminders.

So, Nokia 8 is up for pre-order in the UK for a cheaper outright price and those who decide to go for it will also receive a free Nokia Steel smartwatch worth £119.99.

Because the majority of Nokia users are in the UK, perhaps?

If you're from the U.S., Nokia has always had a larger fanbase outside of the U.S., in European countries, Africa, etc.

Great deal! Not only is the phone cheaper outright in the U.K., but you get the Nokia Steel smartwatch, as well. Great way to entice more buyers. It would be awesome if such a deal is in place when the Nokia 8 comes to the U.S., but either way, I'm getting one.

Nokia could've experienced this success sooner. I blame Eflop and Windows Phone. Nokia has been doing good lately so far.

Totally blame that idiot Elop for Nokia sinking so low when they were using Windows as their OS on their smartphones. He is the very definition of a Trojan Horse.
