Anybody want to guess when Apple Watches will be in stock in Stores? My delivery date estimate is June 12th so I am guessing June 12th for the irony effect. I was late ordering it on May 11 so I had to wait a month.

My second guess is June 8th which means I would probably be stuck waiting on the watch already in the mail when I could just get one in the store.

Your turn. What do you guys think?

I really don't see them getting significant stock out to stores before the end of June. If the MarketWatch article I read earlier was correct, there have already been 7 million orders made and only 2.5 million fulfilled...either they have ramped up production significantly, or they are going to have a great deal of unhappy customers....

The same day we get Mr. Fusion, Hover Boards, and flying cars.
Between now and then 14 more Jaws movies come out and the Cubs win the World Series.

Damned i really hope it's before the twentysecond of June.
I am in Canada now (and will be visiting the USA) and really like to buy a second one here (or in the States) Because they are so cheap over here.

WWDC is, what, June 8? I say a week later, plus a few days to give it as Fri 19th June

June 8th is WWDC
All April/early May orders will be delivered on/by the 8th
Timmy announcing at WWDC in store availability that Friday the 12th
I think I will revise my guesses to make the 12th my first choice and the 9th my second. Like the idea of getting my watch in a week instead of two weeks.

I'm guessing the 15th. Second guess is 12th.
+1 for the 15th. They've been moving a lot of watches out, trying to get caught up with the backlog. The models you'll see in store will be all of the ones with a 2-3 week delivery (i.e. they have them in stock).

Second choice is the 16th - Apple loves Tuesdays for some reason (maybe Boomtown Rats fans?) ;)

Just saw this on a news story.
"
Apple hasn't publicly announced when the Apple Watch will be available in its retail stores other than Apple CEO Tim Cook's "late June" timeframe announced during Apple's most recent earnings call."

I don't recall any other source saying "late" June. Any one have a link to the transcript of the earnings call?

Doubtful but there is always a chance they'll do the thing they love to do recently and say "TODAY". "...and I'm pleased to announce that select Apple Watch models are available to buy, in stores, TODAY!"

Very much doubt it though, maybe the last Friday of June?

As far as I know the June timeframe was not on an earnings call but rather when Tim Cook was speaking with employees at Apple HQ in China. According to 9 to 5 Mac and other sources Tim was directly quoted as saying "by June" for when the Watch would be available at Apple Stores.

Just now for the heck of it I went through the process of acting as though i were about to order a Space Black with Space Black Link Bracelet -- and noticed that now shipping is listed as "5-7 business days." Wow!!! I didn't order, as I'm waiting until the watches are actually available at the store, but it does look as though availability is getting closer......

??? For the 42mm's we're only up to :17 minutes after the hour on the April 10th orders...and many pre-orders have July dates.

You've got to be talking about the 38mm's, right?

Edit: Just checked myself. 42mm's SB SS:

  • Available to ship:
    5-6 weeks
  • Free Shipping
