6 - 8 week pre-order wait?? Seriously. OK, I can live with the wait as it was well known and advertised.....after waiting 8+ months after the initial Watch announcement. Dilemma..... April 10 pre-order at 3 AM Eastern???....not happening, I get up at 5:30 am. Received this e-mail today - 6/19/2015 "Apple Watch. Now available at the Apple Store." Really?? Not at my local store and online orders still showing 2-3 week delivery times. Guess when you get as huge as Apple, customer service is considered an afterthought. Apple (and most other tech companies) current thought process, (no doubt invented by a Stanford MBA)....... Send an e-mail to all registered users/customers and maybe they, the consumer/customer, will order....and wait.....and wait until we have enough data to produce an appropriate number of units matching customer demand. I understand this thought process but I also expect when a company such as Apple advertise a new product or version of a current product, that product will be available to ship.....immediately! Don't use my input data/order info to justify your production schedule. Have purchased and still own - 3 iPods, 2 iMacs, 1 Macbook Pro, 3 Apple Extreme routers, 5 iPhones, 4 iPads. I have never had to wait for an Apple product. What "Genius" at Apple thought this one out? I am in the Apple Ecosystem and enjoy the ease of interoperability but the Watch is a disasterous launch (IMHO). I will not be ordering a Gen 1. FYI - I'm going with a Garmin 225 as my fitness tracker but I have to say, the Garmin launch is just as pitiful as the Apple Watch launch. Supposed to be in hand 2nd qtr 2015 but looks like another 2 moth wait. Good thing about Apple is you can cancel your online order. Garmin won't even let me cancel my order. Is true technology customer service dead or currently just in purgatory?? Sorry for the rant but this stuff really ticks me off.
