    Default Apple Online Store is Down Prior to Apple Watch Preorder


    As Apple is getting ready to open up Apple Watch preorders on their online website at 12:01am PT (3:01am ET), the online store has been taken down. Those who participated in the preorder of Apple’s iPhone 6 and 6 Plus devices know how hard it was get onto the website and App Store around the time of the prelaunch. We have a feeling that the Online Store and App Store will be the same way with the Apple Watch preorder. According to Angela Ahrendts,

    We are excited to welcome customers tomorrow and introduce them to Apple Watch, our most personal device yet. Based on the tremendous interest from people visiting our stores, as well as the number of customers who have gone to the Apple Online Store to mark their favorite Apple Watch ahead of availability, we expect that strong customer demand will exceed our supply at launch. To provide the best experience and selection to as many customers as we can, we will be taking orders for Apple Watch exclusively online during the initial launch period.
    In the meantime, those who are preparing to preorder the wearable device can still go through the website and look at the different models to confirm which one they will be purchasing. Pricing of the smartwatch begins at $349 for the Apple Watch Sport, $549-$1,099 for the stainless steel smartwatch, and finally $10,000+ for the Apple Watch Edition.

    How long have you been waiting to preorder the device? Share with us in the section below.

    ugh SERIOUSLY I could have stayed sleep. I wonder if I pre ordered from the app at 3:01 if I would have gotten it on launch or if the space gray 42mm aluminum just wasn't ready. Disappointed, but I ordered anyway.

    man, that's crap. i got up (i'm on the east coast) and was sitting at the iMac pressing reload over and over. decided to try that apple store app and it worked. wonder if that cost me a week of waiting.

    anyway, i got a 38mm space gray black band sport, 42mm space gray black band sport, 38mm stainless (black sport band), and 42mm stainless (black sport band).

    i was tossed up between the sport watch and apple watch, and didn't know which size to get, so i got one of each. i'll eBay the three i don't keep.

    the sport watches (both 38mm and 42mm) and the 42mm stainless are available to ship in 4-6 weeks with delivery may 13 - may 27.

    the 38mm stainless (with black sport band) is set to deliver april 24 - may 8.

    It was a toss up for me between that one and the 42mm steel with black Classic buckle and that was shipping 4-6 weeks out as well. FML!!

    Edit - OMG my OTHER "toss-up" the space black 42mm steel is shipping in June. . Glad I couldn't justify that cost.

    Shipping for 42mm steel with classic black buckle has slipped back to 4/24-5/8 so maybe some of those 4-6 week estimates will ship on launch after all. On the other hand, 42mm space gray sport with black sport strap is now shipping in June.

    Was it ever showing 4-6 weeks?

    it's weird to me that the classic buckle is 4/24-5/8 and the stainless with sport band is 4-6 weeks, because they are the same exact case/watch, just a different band.

    When I finally realized I had to move to the Apple Store app to order, they both showed 4-6 weeks for me as soon as I opened, as they were the two models I added as favorites.
