    I'm sorry, I should have specified the 42mm. I've been watching istocknow.com for changes as well. Unless there's a daytime shipment of them, they will likely not have them in stock. I was wondering if any were delivered from manufacturing yet and since AlliFlowers has the square box, it's possible. I've been up in the air about upgrading my S2, but since I'm having way too much issues keeping the Pear app running while working out, I figure I can upgrade and turn the old watch into cultofmac's program. I won't sell on ebay since I've been burnt before.

    They said they did, but the only I bought (last one) was the black sport band. I think the sport loop looks ok, the Nike sport loop is a little different than the Apple one besides color. I compare the Nike black sport loop with Apple's the Nike one is a bit thicker.

    I think the Apple black sport loop is multicolored while the Nike one is black and grey? Wasn't a fan of the multi one. Maybe the black/grey will look better IRL.

    Verizon hasn't updated my order status yet, but I was charged for the sales tax today so I'm assuming my 42mm Series 3, Space Gray Nike Sport will be shipping in the next 24 hours.

    Same thing with the phone a few weeks ago and I got it 2 day FedEx.

    I got the black multicolored on and returned it after noticing that there's an exclusive nike loop that wasn't what I bought. I got the dark olive to replace it until I get the nike upgrade. It's nicer than the multicolored black, but be aware that the plastic parts look olive too and looks a little odd. You don't notice normally so I don't care.

    Had to call AT&T to get the watch activated. Took about 30 minutes including wait time.

    I thought the Nike one looks ok, the grey part is a little lighter than I thought, I wish they have a all black one.

    I think any Apple Watch that comes with a sport loop band comes in the square box. Any watches with a band like the regular sport band that can lay flat comes in the long box.

    After 7 days of test videos, I finally convinced my wife to switch back to Apple Watch from Fitbit!

    I don't think so based off the picture above. Maybe the square box is for watches with LTE / more expensive ones?

    No because my 42 Nike+ LTE came in the regular rectangle box.

    That's what I'm doing. Never had the Watch before and passed on Series 1 and 2... I finally decided to go for Series 3 and ditch Fitbit at the same time.

    Mine should be shipping today... was already charged.

    Ok...I freakin' love the Nike sport loop. It is beyond soft. And it just looks amazing!

    That square box...I'd love to know who thought that up. It was HEAVY! Why did they need to make it so heavy?!

    Good to know, thanks. That's why I went with the sport loop.

    3 hour flight from KY to CA.... offset by the time change. Looks legit. :)

    haha, I'm now setting it up for her, I convinced her by telling her she should be checking on her heart rate too.
    She's a swimmer and the only two waterproof fitbits are their watches, which looks... you know. Priced similar to Apple Watch too, there is no comparison there, Apple Watch is a much more capable device!

    Seems to be square box for watches with a "loop" band. Long box for watches with a flat/open band.

    That's also our favorite strap so far, I will be getting a pick one for my wife and possibly a black one for myself!

    That really sucks! I would think you should get your watch by tomorrow at the latest. Fortunately, they reported the "mechanical failure" about an hour away from where I am which is probably why it was still delivered today. I've never had this happen on any other UPS delivery I've received.

    Oh, I was getting the time change backwards lol. Was thinking it was instantaneous. Regardless, no departure and no arrival scan? What's up with that?

    Absolutely.

    I used the Charge HR that I gave to a friend. It monitored heart rate and overall wasn't a bad fitness device. I'm mainly going for the Watch for the fitness extras that Fitbit doesn't have as well as everything else that comes with the Watch... Siri, LTE, etc etc...
