    Just wondering if we will see the rest soon. I would guess they have to be all out by the first delivery date. I am curious to see the phone one. Happy to see some reviewers saying sound quality is good enough that people do not realize you are using the watch. I guess that makes sense given that Bluetooth headsets are pretty clear too.

    I can't figure out why they're holding them back. What is the difference?

    Maybe they are still producing them to show the final release software?

    no idea why they didn't release all the guided tours at once. Funny how half the videos say coming soon. Looks very incomplete and a bit weird from Apple.
    Come to think of it everything about this launch has been odd.

    I was checking these daily last week to see if they were updated. I haven't bothered the last 2 days. I think if they are going with the "keep you checking" idea it has backfired. At least for me.

    This seems to be uncharacteristic of Apple IMO.. They have never been the type to let preorders happen and not have all the info out. I mean, they've never really hidden anything from the consumer before so I don't see why on the few days before launch they'd make a surprise announcement like, 'It has GPS and ALL DAY BATTERY! Oh yeah, and they''re upgradable!' to get people to REALLY flood the stores and online ordering...

    Phil Schiller mentioned at lunch today that they will be released next week or the week after.

    Ding ding ding ding.

    It's interesting that none of the Watches in the store are fully functional.

    They are totally working on last minute software changes. Thats why you can't use the watches in the store.

    Yes. They will sync from the phone. Probably through the Watch App

    That is how Pebble does it.

    I think they're holding them back to keep up a constant trickle of interest and media articles. If I'm right, we should see the next batch released this Friday.

    Exactly! They don't have $300!!! How the hell are they going to buy Final Cut? And they are short staff to the point where Tim Cook has to sit in his office with his Surface RT and edit the videos himself, using only Premier CS5 and windows movie maker.

    Come on guys. Can't blame them for taking so long now can we?

    I think the demand for the tours were so high that they didn't plan on it and were in short supply. Plus they put a limit on the number you could watch guys. Didn't you read the fine print?! Lol don't worry, they are increasing production of the videos to meet demand. Maybe we will all get bumped up to an earlier date to watch them. Hahaha
