Ordered from Verizon Thursday evening (9/21). Email said "shipping by 10/11." It shipped today (9/25), should arrive Tuesday. Can't wait.
I ordered 9-17 from Verizon with a "delivery by" 10/11. No movement yet. No charges on my credit card.

I noticed this morning (at least in the US and Canadian online Apple stores) that the check availability option for the watches has been turned back on.

So, sites like istocknow should soon be able to show us stores that have the watch we're looking for very soon! :) (well, when there's stock that is) :)

Edit - istocknow is showing the stock levels. :)

It seems like 42mm is significantly more popular than 38mm. Mine will be here tomorrow!

Exact same here!
Same model, time, and status update.

Just got the shipping notice. My email said delivery by 10/4 and I was like how is that possible?! Then I checked the FexEx page and it's because it's coming direct from China - but even then, Fedex says delivery by this Friday morning 9/29. Score!

Congrats! I think the 42mm ones *are* more popular. The slightly larger screen does make it easier to work with. Still nothing new on my watch. But my 64GB ATV just got charged to my credit card!

I cancelled my B&H Photo order and ordered through Apple. Nov is not going to work. And to think I could have avoided this issue by ordering a stainless black instead of the Nike (no sapphire) from the get go when Apple opened pre-orders. It's my own fault that I didn't research models closely.

I obviously spoke too soon. When I first checked FedEx, it said 9/29 delivery by 10:30AM. Now it says Monday 10/2 by 10:30AM. It also notes that the package was picked up in China after the FedEx cutoff, so that might be why. I'm still holding out it comes on Friday, since that would be 3 business days and that's the maximum for what FedEx considers "FedEx Express 2Day AM" which is what it was shipped by, but we'll see.

Has anyone that ordered from B&H Photo received their watch or a shipment notification?
I ordered from B&H about 1 min after their preorder went live. Because of the holiday last week, the site indicated they would be available and start shipping Mon Sept 25th. I thought, okay, I can handle that for the savings of sales tax. I had a live chat with them yesterday and they said not to expect shipment until November. I turned around and ordered one from AT&T, one from Apple, and one from Abt Electronics. Whoever ships first, the others will be canceled. They are all showing different dates for shipping.

We ordered from B&H at the same time then :). I cancelled my B&H and re-ordered from Apple, and have some stock alerts active so we will see. Hope we both get lucky soon.

On pre-order day at around noon, I ordered from T-Mobile on their EIP monthly payment program. Estimated ship time: 10/9-10/20.

My order is listed by T-Mobile as “still processing”, BUT my credit card was just charged for the $29 in sales tax. They usually charge when they ship, so hopefully it is coming soon!


T-Mobile 42mm LTE space gray/black sports band.

Currently have a series 0 SS and I’m really tempted to get a series 3 from EE on pay monthly. Works out as the same price as buying directly from Apple and paying £5 a month for service for 2 years.

Same here. I kept my order active with B&h and ordered today with Apple, who have a Nov 7th delivery date, the same time B&h get their stock in (supposedly).

We’ll see what happens, I’m assuming Apple will deliver to my door sooner. November is a long time to wait though.

Shame, avoiding the $35 tax is a nice incentive.

I sold my Garmin Fenix 3hr and miss getting my notifications on my wrist! B&H's tax incentive is nice though. I can't imagine waiting until Nov and am now even looking at ebay....:eek:
