    Are employees excited or terrified about what is going to take place in their stores in the next few weeks?

    Can I order online at 12:01 a.m. (PDT) on April 10 and pick up in store when the store opens on April 24?

    If so, what line will I wait in? Will there be a special line for people who have already paid for their watch and just need to pick it up?

    Will the bands be available separately on launch day?

    Yes, if the stock that is determined online doesn't run out you can make a product reservation and pay at the store on the 24th. Online portal will show you your pick up date at the store.

    Most units will get reserved prior to the 24th, so on launch there will be no units for people to reserve and purchase for the same day but they can reserve for a future day

    ----------

    Yes.

    Both, we are undertaking so much training it's been crazy. There's even different videos per model that we have to learn and go over as each model has a different try on method

    ----------

    Plenty.

    Ask Me Anything. It's something usually done on Reddit where someone, usually a celebrity or public figure, says "Ask Me Anything" and tries their best to answer people's questions.

    Oh. OK. Thanks.

    Which watch are you getting? Have you seen the watches in real life? What are they really like? I'm more interested in your assessment of the different straps.

    Haha, ask questions my good sir. I'll be happy to answer. Overly divulging is no fun.

    Will we be able to make a try on appointment at midnight on Friday the 10th to try one on later that same day or the next day?

    Apple said that having "favorites" marked in our app will help in the demoing process. Is this also true with speeding up the actual purchasing rush on the 10th?

    I'd like to just login and purchase my favorites.

    I've only seen them when I visited Apple Campus, and when I reciveced the try on models to start setting up for Friday. think the sports are ugly as can be, the space grey sport is okay.

    Definitely interested in the stainless with a leather or Milanese strap. Still hoping we get either a free watch or a large discount but no announcement yet,

    Most employees haven't seen the watches except the visual team leaders and the employees at corporate. Everyone else will see them the morning of.

    How much stock do you expect?

    Yes, both are true. Favorites will let the concierge system in the store know which ones you'll be interested in trying on and they will be saved online for easier purchase on the 10th

    Very low numbers, which is why this new product reservation system has been set. But now finally if you walk in to the store and we don't have it in stock, we can order it for you to come pick up at a later date, you'll know exactly what date and you'll pay when you come back to purchase

    In your opinion, what important functionality hasn't been spotlighted yet?

    I felt like this still did not answer the underline question. Can you preorder on Friday for in-store pick up, or is the only option home delivery for online orders placed Friday when it goes live?

    Ha, yes. Apple doesn't really crack down that hard and besides, I'm on public wifi on a VPN with no credentials to trace this back.

    Are the strap and band sizes in the sizing guide exact, or are there a few millimetres of +/- leeway?
