    I preordered my Space Black Series 3 and it’s still in Memphis today... hoping it hits FL tonight since FedEx says it’ll be here tomorrow by 8pm

    Finally got a chance to see the 42mm stainless model in person today...so nice but the 3 week wait is a bummer! Debating whether I should just wait and order one with my new phone in a few weeks. Ugh!

    The two Apple Stores here have gotten a decent number of aluminum S3’s, but only one stainless steel watch between them. I guess a lot of people buy the less expensive aluminum models, so Apple doesn’t ship a lot of stainless steel stock directly to the stores.

    Mine is supposed to be delivered to Indiana today and is still in Memphis.. seeing your post I’m hoping they just haven’t done anything yet with our package... I’m going to be mad as hell if they have lost it though..

    i have to say the battery life is excellent. I can go for an hour run with GPS and go all day and still have 35% left 24 hours later.

    Ooh so ours must be in the same shipment. Something tells me it might be coming directly to our neck of the woods from there

    Well it has about a five hour drive to my door. It still has plenty of time to make it but I’m not very hopefully since there has been no movement for 24 hours.. I’m off to work hopefully I come home to Christmas...

    Does anyone know if you swap your AW for a different one do you have to activate the data plan all over again? I really like the Nike+ with Black/Pure Platinum Nike Sport Loop but if it's going to be a nightmare setting up I won't bother.

    I feel sorry for the Tmoblie people. Mine is out for delivery and I ordered from At&t late last week.

    I placed my order on the same day with T Mobile. They had the nike apple watch 42mm in stock yesterday, so i cancelled my pre order for the normal apple watch and got the nike plus edition, same size and same functions, just different band and extra watch faces. It shipped today for delivery tomorrow via T Mobile.

    From Apple. It sounds like others here have gotten it sooner from other places. I saw a 42mm SS Series 3 on Target's website yesterday that was available for expedited delivery TODAY. Of course, it was gone pretty quickly.

    Target has a 42mm Space Black Stainless Steel Series 3 if anyone is interested. There's only 1 left.
