Apple Watch preorders began at 12:01am PDT on April 10th.
We got our orders in (Apple Watch Sport models in 42mm Silver) by 12:03am (shipping date “Delivers 4/24-5/8”) using the Apple Store app on iPad (favorited). Our preferred Apple Watch combination wasn’t among the preorder configs (42mm Sport with Silver Case with 42mm Black Sport Band), so Apple got us for an extra $49 per Watch (we ordered our stock launch combination with the White Sport Bands, which will never get used).
We are already getting reports that some Apple Watch models (42mm Apple Watch Sport Space Gray with 42mm Black Sport Band, for one – an Apple preorder config.) have sold out, with shipping slipping into 4-6 weeks territory (late May) a mere ten minutes after pre-orders began.
So, did you get your Apple Watch preorder(s) placed?
