    The earliest I can get to the Apple Store tomorrow is after 2:30 so I got a 2:45 try on time. What do you think are the possibilities I will be able to reserve a Sport for 4/24?

    Between zero and none and this point. They'll order one online for you, but i think by then all the inventory in the stores will be exhausted.

    what maflynn said. People who have been in store already said they just direct you to order online. The whole in store reservation for pick up does not exist yet.

    I did order online. I got a Sport 42mm White band with first wave of deliveries. I wanted to move the reservation for 4/24 because I like being able to actually go to the store and pickup.

    What do you mean move your reservation? If you've ordered for hopefully being in the first batch of deliveries then why change it. Anyway I don't think they were doing instore pick ups

    Sorry I mean "move to". As in if I got a in-store reservation for 4/24 then I will cancel the online order. As Yes there will be reservation stock for the 24th. Employees have confirmed this. You can make a reservation for in-store purchase on the 24th. But my 2:45 time may not be good enough to get one. If not then oh well I still have a first wave delivery date

    but how many "try on" displays do they have? The apple store can get really crazy. I'm sure they will care about appointments.

    If memory serves one watch try on table = 6 stations, I was in a medium size store in London (Stratford) at about 11am, no one was trying one on despite all the slots being booked. There was a specialist walking round asking people if they wanted to try one on. As long as you're not in there at peak times, specialists will not care if you have an appointment or not.

    I definitely agree with that. The store close to me is peak hours from open to close =/
