The Xperia Z1 will be heading to all major UK carriers when it launches over the next few weeks. Most of the operators are offering their own incentives to entice new owners, typically either the SmartWatch 2 or DSC-QX10 free with new contracts. For those looking for a sim-free bundle, then Sony UK is currently offering a Sony SmartWatch 2 with metal strap when you pre-order the Xperia Z1 for £599. For more details see below.
EE is offering a free Sony SmartWatch when you take out a new contract. The operator has a number of 24-month contracts starting from £26 per month (£239.99 upfront) going to £51 per month (£9.99 upfront). Details here.
O2 is offering a free Sony DSC-QX10 for those that pre-order the Xperia Z1. This is only via a monthly contract though via its new Refresh plans, no PAYG options are listed. Details here.
Orange is also offering a free Sony SmartWatch 2, not a surprise as its part of EE. Price plans start at £10.50 per month (£319.99 upfront) going up to £52 per month (£29.99 upfront). Details here.
As T-Mobile is part of EE, it also is offering a free Sony SmartWatch 2 for Xperia Z1 pre-orders. The cheapest plan starts at £7 per month (£389.99 upfront) going up to £62 per month (£9.99 upfront). Details here.

Sony UK has the Xperia Z1 listed for £599.00 for delivery at the end of this month. However, if you add the phone to your basket, you will also be prompted to add the Sony SmartWatch 2 with metal strap for free. This isn’t advertised anywhere on the site from what we can see and makes it better to order from Sony.co.uk rather than the SonyMobile website, where no such offer exists. Details here.
