    My series 0 and series 1 were. My series 2 was silver. The only thing I don’t like about the black is I have several bands and they all go great with the silver but don’t look quite as good with the black. I gave my wife my series 2 silver.

    Yes! Got a shipping notice this morning, delivering Monday, 10/9 via FedEx. It’s currently in Shanghai! I thought apple ships via UPS?

    FedEx does the bulk of Apple's transportation needs.

    I received the same. So if you go from “order in progress,” you should get a “shipped” notice 24 hours later with a tracking number and the delivery date is 5 Days later (could be less if a Monday or Tuesday ship due to the weekend.

    Anyone in the Phoenix metro area? The 42mm aluminum LTE is in stock at a few Targets. I’m holding out for my SS.

    For those of you with shipping dates weeks out, keep checking target's website or app. They seem to pop up daily albeit for short periods of time then choose express shipping for free and enjoy your new Apple Watch and cancel your order. There's no sense in waiting for long periods of time if there are other opportunities out there to get it now.

    Had an Amex notification pop up today for my SG Nike + S3.

    Delivery was originally "6th to 9th", but now says "Preparing for Despatch, Delivers 6 Oct by Standard Shipping"

    I ordered a series 3 with LTE on 09/28 from AT&T. I received a shipping notice last night. The tracking number links to USPS, but says "Status not available" still. Is this normal? Anybody know where AT&T ships from. Original shipping date was 10/10-10-17, so I guess I got lucky.

    So I'm assuming that some retailers are over-estimating their ship dates and the watches in certain styles are shipping earlier than original indicated? I have 4 active orders right now to see who can deliver first.

    I ordered the seashell sport silver from at&t right when the preorder period started (well, when it finally started working for me), and I still have October 27th and on. Wish I had known to go with the fog sport. I was going to replace them either way.

    I have the same message “status unavailable”. I think they ship from out of Texas. You should be able to track the package. Mine says ups ground. Which shipped out last night. I should receive mines tomorrow. Good luck with yours.

    My wife's 38 aluminum pink watch set for Oct 13-20th delivery went preparing to ship tonight. Anyone with recent shipments know how long it takes from preparing to ship to ship?
