    Next week. (Jeff Williams said within two weeks from the announcement).

    Sorry dhlizard, the June 26th date is for additional countries.

    Huh?? Canada was a first wave country, included in pre-orders since April 10th.

    Me, I think it's likely Tuesday the 16th that they'll launch in-store. We'll see if there's any announcement or if it's just word-of-mouth that gets availability relayed to everyone.

    In the interview last. They said in store sales started "in two weeks" for USA. And on June 26 for the other launch countries.

    Really? So where does Jeff Williams state that it's only in the US that retail starts within two weeks?

    http://www.apple.com/pr/library/2015/06/04Apple-Watch-Arrives-in-Seven-More-Countries-June-26.html

    June 26 is for the second wave of countries (Italy, Mexico, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Switzerland and Taiwan).

    Next week should be Apple in-store availability for all of the wave 1 countries: Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, the UK and the US.

    lol

    as much as I love the 'rumor-mongers' here, I also love the 'contrarian for the sake of contrarianism' banter if not more.

    Fantastic comprehension skills. Still not seeing in the highlighted area where it says only US stores will have the watches??

    No kidding. The way that I read that, on the 26th it will be available in stores in all wave 1 and wave 2 countries.

    Yeah, theoretically it would be June 18th, since http://www.apple.com/pr/library/2015/06/04Apple-Watch-Arrives-in-Seven-More-Countries-June-26.html is dated June 4th.

    But yeah, there is some ambiguity in the paragraphs that follow along w/which models are amongst the "some" that will be sold in their retail stores.

    It'll be interesting to see which are the some and what the retail supply and demand situation is like.

    That part is true (both waves will have on the 26th), but wave 1 stores will have them available in store sooner. Wave 2 gets online and in-store on the 26th.

    Yep, but I'm taking the "within two weeks" verbiage as an indication that it will be before the 18th (and Apple loves Tuesday's).

    Maybe I'll go to my local Apple store tomorrow - just to see. :) (well, local being a relative term...a little over an hour drive) :)

    There is some movement if you have to belive the internet, only on the Apple site it still says 1-2 weeks and so does the Chat.
