    Mine has not budged and I just checked it. Whatever you do don't settle, you would be unhappy if you went for the gps only. But at least you are getting better dates and I would not be surprised if you got yours sooner than the second round update.

    Mine arrived in my local city’s FedEx sort facility about 20 minutes ago. Now that I see this, I know it’s coming tomorrow for sure and not Monday like FedEx projects. Nice!!

    Surprise surprise! My watch arrived this morning at 9AM. Can’t believe how fast the shipping was and how off their estimate was but always better to under promise and over deliver!

    Now I can’t wait to get home and get it going :D

    Just updating to say I got mine yesterday.

    A note to those (like me) who want to use the UPS form to have the carrier leave it without signature - my guy told me that he couldn't accept it. Now this is coming from Verizon, so Apple may be different. Luckily I had come home between classes so I was there to sign - but he told me he wouldn't have been able to leave it with just my UPS form!

    this is my first apple watch so i don’t really have anything to compare it to. i’ve tried on my friends and brothers watches but didn’t really explore the watch. i’m not going to cancel yet. sucks all of my accessories are arriving now and i have no watch.

    I ordered an LTE Space Gray watch with the dark olive sport loop on the morning of the preorders.
    Was quoted Oct 6-11 estimated delivery.

    It was delivered by FedEx this morning.

    I ordered the same watch around the same time and I received this morning too.

    How do you like the sport loop?

    From the looks of it, I think the carriers are hedging their dates and it looks like we will receive sooner than later.

    So, Apple says I cannot buy a series 3 watch. They have absolutely none in stock in any store. It all has to be bought online. So, every picture I've seen here is from people who have pre-ordered the watch weeks ago, right?

    I know its in demand, but this is a little crazy, imo.

    Yeah I’m trying to decide if I want to attempt to place an order through Apple just to see which comes first. I can always return one.

    There is a stock checker out there. They are probably pretty hard to find. Some best guys have stock. Most are the gps model but some do get in lte. Just check daily or place an order and wait.

    I did EIP as well, I didn't qualify for 0 down. But if they haven't charged me and it hasn't shipped They should let me cancel.

    I already decided that I'm just going to pay full price for the iPhone X and order from Apple to skip the T-Mobile hassle and potential wait for months for them to get stock.

    What amazes me is that APPLE is the manufacturer. So if anyone should be getting them earlier it would be those who ordered from Apple as they ship them to Verizon and T Mobile etc. Yet all the earlier deliveries seem to be the cell carriers who sold them. I ordered from Apple on the first day (but not early) and have a Oct 13-20 date. People who ordered days after (from Verizon) have received them or see them at Fedex etc.

    when can we expect the LTE in-store pick up, so far no store has these devices in US.

    AKA not pre-ordered / for walk-in sale?
    My guess would be early-mid November.

    Apple is shipping very fast. Mine was quoted oct 6-13 and I got it this morning.
