    Apologies if this has been brought up before (and I kinda hope it has) --

    We bought my AW in-store on Monday, Aug 3rd, although I see a minor blip in Activity on Sunday the 2nd. I'm guessing that this was a test upon receipt at the Apple Store.

    Scrolling back to July, I see two other blips on the 14th and 15th. My wife wondered if we got a returned Watch, but my guess is that this was when it was assembled and tested for the first time.

    Plausible? Entertaining, at least?

    I have something a couple of months before purchase - its probably them testing the watch after manufacturing.

    Yep, when they turned the watch on after manufacturer. Was brought up when people started getting their watches on release day.

    I have activity blips on two consecutive days during the week before I got my watch and then a third day the day before it was delivered. I think all (or most) watches come with a pattern of two consecutive days sometime before delivery and then a third day just before the watch arrives.

    The best part is, the July blips coincide with my birthday. :D

    Interesting...

    I ordered my Sport from Best Buy on August 15 and received it on August 18. I've got two blips on July 19 and 20.

    I have two as well but also one the day before I got my watch. And I know I did not get a returned watch because I received it on launch day.

    What do you think that is the third blip?
    I have two consecutive blips in June, I bought the watch on Saturday and there's one blip on Friday. You seem to have it too. I bought mine from the store, it was not a pre-order online.

    My guess for the third blip is that the store tested it when they received it. Just a guess, though.

    No idea, I only have one "blip" I'm not sure what could account for the other two. If it were me, I'd not be all that worked up about it.

    I don't have any pre-purchase blips.

    As a matter of fact, the entire first week of ownership seems to be missing from my Activity history, when I know I had it, activated it, and used it.

    Ah well...

    Yeah, but it is odd to be sure.
