    Just got back from the UPS store...


    There's no separate box this time or was the that removed in S2. All it comes in the in shipping cardboard box but not actual plastic box for storage lets say...

    I am curious to know how do you activate the cellular on the Apple Watch? Does it automatically detect and set up via watch application on iPhone or do you have to call your carrier to set up

    Picked my watch up from UPS this morning. Could hardly wait to get it set up once I got into work. Coming from a S0, WOW, the speed on this thing is incredible. And I've been setting it up for the past hour now or so and the battery hasn't dropped even 1%. Such a welcome change!

    I must say that the red dot on the Digital Crown sure sticks out like a sore thumb. Was hoping it would be a little more subdued in person, but it doesn’t appear to be the case. I sure wish that there was a non-LTE model for stainless steel. At least there’s watchdots....now if they would just ship them to me soon....ordered them last Saturday and haven’t received a shipping notification yet.

    doing the setup it will ask you if you want have cellular activate. Im with sprint, it automatically know my #, i just have to input my sprint pin #, agree to the monthly service and that was it, oh, it did tell me the first 3 months was free.

    Just set mine up! I love how it sets up the new one without having to unpair the old one and restores everything without having to unpair. Just activated cellular thru Verizon. So everyone knows even if you buy the watch anywhere else like me thru Apple, they still give you the promotion of no activation fee and the 3 months free.

    Hope those that didn’t get their watch yet gets them soon! It was fun just like every year! I’m sure I’ll see most of you again for the iPhone X preorders!

    Yeah same here. I ordered the watch last week and still waiting for it. The red dot based on some photos posted looks annoyingly bad!

    Not that I ever used the plastic box for storage. But still that’s weak, makes it feel more of a throw away than a nice Watch package. Are the boxes only with the Edition versions now?

    Anyone with Verizon having issues? Mine won’t activate and Verizon says they are having technical issues.

    I'm guessing that the activating servers are overloaded with the watches and 8's

    Looks like we’re back to 2007 and the old iPhone activation problems. Way to go AT&T.
