    You're not the only one. I was originally expecting mine to ship the first week in Oct. Hopefully it'll make it to VA before then. :D

    At least it's in SOUTH Korea.

    Exact same thing happened to mine! Earlier today it was scheduled for delivery tomorrow, then it was updated with no delivery estimate but it landed in AK. Now it's back to Shanghai. Crazy

    That's what you call a "ReCall". Must of found some defective devices and need to 100% inspect the lot

    My watch did the same!

    I'm starting to get REALLY upset with Apple.

    Multiple people are getting their jets black phones before me even though I ordered before them, now this crap. WTF?

    I think it's time to start calling Apple and demanding some compensation for this ill-planned product launch.

    I'm assuming because of the day/time differences the scanning looks crazy?

    BTW the authorized transaction on my CC just fell off. Maybe they have cancelled all of our orders for some reason?

    Same thing happened to mine. Could the time difference be making it appear goofy on the tracking?

    Could be the time zone difference, or it could be that the "arrival scan" is actually some sort of documentation pre-processing (part of the customs process?) and that the physical package hasn't arrived yet.

    There is something wrong with the report you received. There's never a departure scan from Anchorage.

    Yeah. I doubt that the watch actually reached Alaska. My guess is it went from China to Korea (why?). This morning it's still stuck in Korea. No movement. No scheduled delivery date.

    mine's in the exact same situation..stuck in Korea even though it said it got to Anchorage.
    If it hasn't left shanghai in reality and got re-routed to korea...then I suspect this is going to be delayed for at least a week or more..

    Tracking for UPS sucks until it arrives stateside.

    Tr00f.

    I'm still thinking it's on one of Han Jin's cargo ships.

    For those who didn't click the story links I posted: Han Jin, the Korean shipping company, declared bankruptcy a couple weeks ago. All of its ships which were already at sea—I think I've heard it was over 170 vessels—weren't being allowed to just drop off their goods at shipping ports because they wouldn't be able to pay the port fees (yes, the way it works is, you're driving a cargo ship, show up to port, ask to dock and unload, and the port charges you a fee for using the dock space and for unloading all your stuff). A lot of ports said they would simply seize the goods and use them as collateral to recoup the money, but obviously Han Jin didn't want it to happen that way.

    The Korean government has given Han Jin some cash to buy food and fuel for their ships, and they should be either unloading at various foreign ports or returning to Korea.

    Of the links I posted, Reuter's is more recent:
    http://www.reuters.com/article/us-hanjin-shipping-debt-usa-bankruptcy-idUSKCN11L2NL

    Here's one posted yesterday by the LA Times:
    http://www.latimes.com/business/la-fi-hanjin-return-chartered-ships-20160919-snap-story.html

    I've seen Han Jin shipping containers on trains from California all the way here to DC. It's a pretty big company to fall into bankruptcy.

    This complaint is only valid if Apple also owns the trucks, ships, airplanes, and trains for carrying all of their products.

    Thanks for the info. My tracking is showing the same thing. I wonder if Apple is going to send some email to all those impacted with an update, even though as you said it's definitely not their fault.
