Just ordered 40mm Ceramic with Brown Buckle for wife.

Took a few extra minutes and I got a Sep 26 - Oct 1 delivery date.

Just ordered the SG Nike. Really wanted to do stainless steel but I think I will upgrade next year so will put the savings towards that.

Since I seem susceptible to upgrading my watch with nearly every update, I'm sticking with AL. Less expensive, lighter, and I've not had any issues with scratches. As soon as the store came up on the Apple Store app, ordered 44mm, SG, Al, cellular matched up with anchor grey sports loop. Delivery on the 20th.

40mm Titanium Silver with Pomegranate sport loop (sigh).
Delivers 09/20 at my Apple Store. By the time I corrected my billing address in my iPad's Apple Pay settings that I never use (re-sigh), it was shipping to home on 09/23, so I changed to store appointment.

They FINALLY made it so you can order a new watch with whatever color band you want. You're not stuck with choosing from just the one option. Never understood why they didn't do that last year considering how they changed the watch and the band are packaged.
That would be when bought in store. Online options for the SS and sport loop (WAY too light for SS) or Milanese Loop (already have).

The $110 trade in for AW4 is what has me hesitant.

Never mind. Opened the webpage as opposed to the app.

I was mostly referring to color. If you are ok with sport loop you can order with any of the available colors. Same with the sport bands. Last year the only options online for the Space Black were the black sport band or the black Milanese. I already had a black sport band, so would have preferred a different color.

I customized mine instead of going the standard route and have a sept 26- oct 1st delivery.

Ordered within first 15 mins so hoping it’ll still show up on the 20th!

Got the series 5 cellular 44mm Aluminum Space Grey with green band. The only reason i’m getting this after just getting a series 4 is for the Always On Display. Apple has finally caught up with Android smart watches. Now there is no competition.

Mine shows a Sept 20th pick up date.

Not available yet through phone carriers yet. Wonder if they will be for 9/20 delivery?
I chatted with ATT. They won't have the Series 5 until mid-October. I ordered from Apple and am paying in full. I want the fall detection and also I'm anxious to give my Series 3 to my daughter who's currently wearing my Series 0 and the battery is failing.

Ordered Titanium 44 for September 20 delivery, didn't know you could choose bands when ordering, oh well. I like the bands I have now.

Got my pre-order in! Upgrading to a 44mm Space Black Stainless Steel w/ a Black Sport Band. Upgrading from a Series "0" 42mm Space Gray Aluminum. It's been a long time coming!
