The Apple Watch Movement​

Once our orders move to process we should start seeing some movement to 'Preparing For Shipment' over the weekend. This usually happens Saturday evening or Sunday afternoon (PST time).

Once this happens you should be able to get details on your phone and let the tracking begin!

Here are some notes to help track orders:

If your Apple Watch status has changed to "Shipped", you can view the invoice on the Apple site.

That invoice has the serial number on it.

Go to Apple.com, then pick the ORDERS page (the little "shopping bag" icon at the far right on the homepage... go to your orders page). Now, login, find your Apple Watch order... and click on Print All Invoices to see your shiny new Apple Watch serial number.

Link to track your Apple Watch via UPS:

https://www.ups.com/track?loc=en_US&requester=ST/

Tracking | UPS - United States (Only)​

Track one or multiple packages with UPS Tracking, use your tracking number to track the status of your package.
www.ups.com

Detailed Tracking

Another way to find it, enter your phone number + zip:

Track your UPS shipments here using your reference number

If your phone number isn’t working for UPS tracking, use your order number but subtract the last two numbers/letters. Say your order number is: W123456789, you'd put in: W1234567 - make sure to use the tracking by reference feature.

Oh boy… I don’t need to upgrade my series 7… but I just feel like I need “double tap” in my life…
The feature no one new that they needed till apple announced it.

I'll be holding off. Tempted to get the Ultra, currently have an S8 alu, but I'll hold off and see what comes next year.

Not going to lie though - I do like the on device Siri, finally.

So I bought an ultra which isn’t exactly cheap, and now the Ultra 2 gets that nice new Watchface. So is my original Ultra now pretty much out of date?

Yep - midnight tonight it's going to stop working.

No, it's fine, it will keep on working. The new watch has some new features but yours will still keep working just fine for several years.

I get technology moves on, but as many experience with Apple Watches having a Watchface refresh would be welcome, because some are looking very tired now.

But I must admit watch os 10 rotating the crown to get extra info will make a big difference.

But I’m still gutted I won’t be getting the new ultra Watchface on my original Apple Watch. ☹️

New Ultra bands look nice....that's about it for me. Double tap looks cool but its just an extension of the double fist clench (accessibility) that is hit or miss for me. Not enough to upgrade AWU 1 to 2

Have fun ya'll
