At 3:01 a.m., Apple made the Apple Watch available for Pre-order online. Most versions of the Apple Watch initially promised a ship date between April 24 and May 8. Within about 15 minutes, all versions had at least a 4-6 week wait time for delivery. As of this morning all versions of the Watch sport edition have a June delivery date, most of the Watch stainless steel versions still have a 4-6 week delivery window, and Apple Watch edition are not shipping until June or July.
Pre-orders are being made available exclusively online, and although it is expected that Apple may have limited quantities available on launch day in-store, there is no guarantee. If you missed ordering when the Watch went on sale this morning, it is recommended that you order online as soon as possible if you want a Watch by this summer.
Although the Apple Watch is not available to pre-order at Apple Store locations, you can see and try on the Watch beginning today at Apple Stores. Appointments are needed to actually try the device on your wrist, but anyone will be able to view a display of the Apple Watch. As of this morning, the Delaware Apple Store will had plenty of appointments available as early as this afternoon. To schedule an appointment, visit Apple’s website.
