    Just seeing if any other Columbus, Ohio people are getting their watch Friday? 42mm Space Grey looks to be on its way, woot woot!

    I'm going to go to the Polaris Apple store to see if I can score a band or two on Friday. No idea if they will have them but doesn't hurt to check :)

    Good Luck!

    I'm from Cleveland, but close enough, right? ;)

    Did your order go from "preparing for shipment" to shipped? Or is it still just preparing? Seems like quite a few people got the flip to "preparing" but not shipped yet.

    Still waiting on mine to prepare, congrats on yours coming shortly!

    Yup. Ordered two watches just after 3am on the 10th. 38 space grey sport for me w/ May 13-27 shipping and 38 white sport for the Wife w/ April 24-May 8 shipping. The sad part is I've been looking forward to this watch since it was first announced last fall while she only decided she wanted one a couple days before the 10th. Oh and hers has prepared to ship while mine is still in processing so I fully expect it on Friday while I continue to wait.

    Not sure about bands. I was originally thinking the green to go with my space grey for workouts but after seeing the article on band colors on the front page of macrumors I'd love a red band to get the scarlet and grey combo!

    Kinda in the middle here in Canton, Ohio!! Ordered mine on 3:02AM, but haven't switch to "Preparing to Shipment". Hopefully I get it on Friday I don't think I can take it.

    I'm also in Canton, Ohio. Ordered a Green 42 Sport, and it's preparing for shipping. Think it depends on the model, not the location :)

    At this point, sad to say, I'm not holding my breath on having the watch in my hands on Friday.

    I'm seeing watches that I ordered already being shipped to other people and my confirmation letter hit at 304am. Developers are getting the chance to buy a watch and have it shipped no later than the 28th. Because you know, they're far more important than the customers that actually might be buying the watch. Yeah, they're developing apps that we might want to purchase and therefore they need the watch. To me, they should have had watches months ago, not this week where Twitter is filled with developers clapping with glee at their opportunity while the rest of us sit on our thumbs and wait for the chance to give Apple our money.

    Apple gives you the pat answer when you contact them, "Yep, order looks great. Should be any time now..." which in translation is the front line reps have no answers to give.

    My head is spinning from the endless speculations in the different threads on what/when/if/how you'll get it. You know what? I have to stop getting my hopes up. This whole launch slid into the skid long ago, and I should have gone with my gut instinct of just waiting until the hoopla subsided like I did with my 6+.

    As of now, my order sits in processing, unmoving, and there's no concrete explanation why. I'm not even holding my breath that I'll have it by 5/8 much less 4/24. Why continue to keep my hopes up? Apple's pushed commitments before, and there's nothing saying they won't again. They've done it with my orders on products that weren't brand new to being launched. I had one order pushed on it's commitment six times.

    To be clear: I have NO reliable information that they'd do that to any of us, just my currently pessimistic gut telling me that something else is gonna go sideways before it's all said and done.

    I'm currently toying with the idea of just canceling the order altogether unless I see some movement soon. If it happens, great then I'll be a changed man. But, knowing my luck on these things, because I work for UPS that means it'll be shipped FedEx. If it doesn't, then I'll put that thousand plus bucks aside and just chill.

    I know from reading the other threads that I'm probably the sole person around here that's being cynical and that's fine. Being optimistic that I might actually get it by 4/24 isn't something I can muster up any longer.

    Cleveland suburb here.

    I have a SG 42mm, it was charged yesterday and preparing to ship. I also ordered a SS 42mm with Black Sport Band that is still Processing. Hoping they both come Friday. Having them delivered to work, so I get them right away.

    I would love to get a white sport band also, or maybe green or blue.

    LOL, glad you're getting them. More fuel for my pessimism though. Everybody AROUND me is getting them.

    And then there's me...
