    Are we ever gonna get a FaceTime camera on the Apple Watch? Until it happens, I’ll hold out.

    Ordered a 42mm stainless black cell 3 at 3:15 am ET, and it arrived on 9/22. Also ordered a 38mm stainless cell 3 at the same time. It was supposed to arrive in early Oct, but actually arrived on 9/25. Both are connected and working. No need to hold the watch to your face when talking. The red dot is like red calipers on a car. Wife likes the dot, I don't. MBP (OS 10.11) asked if I wanted to unlock with the watch.

    I ordered mine the morning of September 16th and have an estimated ship date of October 30-November 10.
    Still no update to anything.

    Not to bad when you get 3 sets. And it covers up that awful red dot. Apple really shouldn’t have put a color on the dot to differentiate particular models. The AWS3 Box clearly states in red Watch Series 3. That should’ve been implication enough to tell the difference. Then they could’ve get the models all the same colors without changing the color of the crown.

    I will order the stickers to see if it’s worth covering and seeing what it will look like. If it’s offset and doesn’t match then perhaps I’ll just try to get used to the red dot.

    Non-LTE orders are fast racking.
    Cancelled my LTE order last week. (Glad I could help some of you!)
    Ordered the non-cellular Series 3 yesterday (Tuesday) and it's scheduled for delivery Friday.

    But wouldn't that make the order of the buttons changed?

    I am waiting for an Apple Store in Denver to have a Stainless Steel with Sport Band so I can get the leather band I want. Seems like barely any stores in the country have gotten Stainless Steel models according to istocknow. Waiting... (should have probably pre-ordered)

    Correct. Pending on the orientation of the wrist, the buttons will either be on the left side or the right side of the wrist, which the Apple Watch will give you the option when you initially set it up as "Left or right wrist" orientation.

    Oddly enough, my Series 3 LTE ordered through T-Mobile has slipped back a week from 10/30 to 11/9

    The new Apple Watch series 3 is manufactured in Vietnam, along with other companies like Nike who has set up manufacturing plants for their shirts. Vietnam's workforce wages are half of those that are in China. One Chinese Government Official said back in 2002; "We can all get rich". The state of manufacturing in Vietnam today so closely resembles that of China ten or 15 years ago—when low-income and low-tech manufacturing acted as a magnet for CEO's of America. The payoffs of moving manufacturing plants to Vietnam is enormous. You are being robbed America again and again, this has been going on for decades and you need to gather in groups now to prevent the CEO's of America from continuing this destruction. We need to hold the CEO's accountable for what they have done.

    These watches must be in serious demand. What was originally shown to be shipping towards the end of October has got pushed way back to damn near the end of November. And this is through TMobile. Anyone else confirm models being pushed out just as late through TMobile or any other carriers?

    Mine is thru T-Mobile. Est delivery of October 30-November 10. Got pushed back to November 8-29.

    Added note, I spoke with customer service, they said not to go off the dates on the T-Mobile app. To look online instead. When I did that, it shows the original estimated date. Not the one that's pushed back. I'd just cancel my order and go to apple if it wasn't for tmobiles payment plan -_-

    I am on a corporate plan at the moment, but will move to a private plan with EE so that I can use the watch with LTE.

    I want to order some dots for mine myself. That red crown looks hideous to me! I’ll be ordering some once I know my watch has shipped.

    They seem to route some percentage to stores for whatever reason. I used Instocknow to locate some AirPods quicker than the six week shipping estimate from Apple.
    I ordered 42mm SS LTE on the 15th, estimate of 10/13-20 has not yet changed.
