  • Apple Watches Start Shipping to Consumers Who Pre-ordered


    It has been a long hyped-up journey, but some of the initial pre-orders of the Apple Watch have begun to ship out to consumers on Thursday. By logging into the Apple Store section of Apple's Web site, you can track the status of your order.

    While many are still in the "processing order" stages, others have been in the "preparing for shipment" stages. Those who were in the "preparing for shipment" stages are the ones who are currently having their orders changed to the "dispatched" status this morning. During this status, the delivery can be tracked online.

    Many of those who are seeing this status are expected to have a Friday, April 24th delivery, as per the tracking number.

    Notably, Apple sent a burst e-mail yesterday to those who are still stuck in the "processing order" stages to politely remind them that their Apple Watch orders are being worked on and that they'll arrive between April 24th and May 8th, which emphasizes the extra time in the delivery estimate.

    If your Apple Watch hasn't been shipped by now, you're probably not going to receive yours by this Friday.

      Thank you Apple for allowing me wake up at 3AM (Eastern time) to pre-order a watch within the first few minutes, only to NOT be receiving it on release day. I'd also like to thank you for shipping the extra charging cable that I had ordered a day later, to arrive tomorrow! It's a great feeling to know that I will have a cable to charge a watch that I don't yet have.

      This whole watch pre-order has been nothing but a complete mess. If you are going to treat your customers like this, AT LEAST launch the "pre-orders" during a decent hour. WTF did I bother waking up for at 3AM???

      Stop complaining. It's a new product releases with 38 configurations. Of course there will be some delays. It's not the end of the world because your not the first cool kid to get his watch.

      Well I am guessing you ordered the steal band, and would also guess the space grey one. Or you didn't order on the Apple Store app. I ordered when the app was up. I saved them in fav for fast access. I getting my first watch on rls day"got the email when got up" I also getting my second watch on the 8th. It is the space grey Apple watch. I ordered both within 30 sec from each. Just be happy you don't have to wait till June

      Yeah I'm not getting mine yet either but I'm almost over it lol. Space grey 42mm sport. Looks like a lot of people with that configuration haven't gotten their shipment info yet. Supply constraints I assume.

      Same here. At about 3:04am (when I finally tried the app since the website wasn't live). Not getting mine until May 13 - May 27.

      Apple woefully underproduces new products and/or launches too soon.

      I spoke to an Apple rep this morning and she confirmed what I've heard from quite a few people: it depends on what version you ordered. That doesn't mean that those of us who purchased the Apple Watch over the Sport aren't going to get it, it just means it's not yet processed.

Looking forward to my 42mm all black stainless steel with black stainless steel band... I ordered both 15 mins after the Apple Store app went live....

      Which by the way as a poster posted previously on another thread, the ups app gives me more detailed info than tracking it via the apple email with the ups tracking number... I followed the tracking link from the shipped notification email and it said standard shipping and arriving on Monday the 27th, the ups app said its shipping from Ca. And said its next day air so maybe it'll be tomorrow after all...

      I ordered 2 watches on the same order at 2:08am right when the website came up. Both stainless with black sport strap. One in 38 and one 42. The 38 has shipped and I'll get it tomorrow 4/24. The 42 says still processing. My card was only charged for the 38 and not both. Sucks because that one is for my wife!!!! Maybe I'll use it until mine comes in.... hehehe

      I don't preorder products from Apple for this very reason. They don't give 2 s***s about their customers. All they care about is getting their money and running. I'm waiting for it to come to stores thank you very much.

      I ordered 2x Sport with White strap in 38 & 42 for me and the missus.
      I was going to order on the morning of pre order starts but my wife wanted to try on first, so I booked an appointment to try on at our local store for Sat evening and then ordered from the web site on late Saturday (so well over 24 hours after re order started.
      I got a delivery of June.
      I checked my mail during my lunch break today and got a shipped order email which should be here tomorrow (Friday)
      I'm guessing it's certain model / colours that are being shipped early because they've got stock. You can't deliver what you don't have I guess.
      I was kind of hoping that a jailbreak for iOS 8.3 was out before June as I'm jailbroken on 8.1 at the mo so no watch app, so I'm loosing my jailbreak, but I'm well pleased to be getting my watch 5 or 6 weeks early :-D
