    Have you returned/cancelled your original watch order and exchanged/ordered a different model/size watch?

    I'm contemplating canceling my 42mm space grey sport order which is slated for June delivery, and ordering a 42mm stainless steel Milanese loop watch because of how beautiful it is, and the premium display and scratch resistance that the sapphire screen offers.

    Anyone else made the switch from sport to stainless steel or vice versa (stainless steel to sport)? If so, what did you switch to and why?

    On 04/10 (preorder day) I ordered a 38mm SG Sport, June delivery (ordered it at 10am EST, about 7 hours after preorders went live).

    Went to Apple Store on 04/12 and tried different combinations on. Loved the SS, so that night, on 04/12 at around 9pm (almost 3 days after preorders went live), I ordered a 38mm SS Black Sport Band, 4-6 week delivery.

    The 38mm SS I ordered 3 days after pre-orders was delivered on launch day, day 1.

    Glad I changed my order! Also glad I got the SS, it's beautiful.

    I switched the other way. I had the milanese and liked the lighter more comfortable Space Grey.

    I cancelled my SG Sport after seeing them in the store. I ordered a 42 SS black S=sport band instead. Puts me way back at the end of the line, but hopefully some of the initial manufacturing issues will be gone by then.

    I'm thinking about buying a SS, having a Sport right now. I may just order it and try to sell or give away the one I have now to family.

    I'm not sure yet. I thought I'd not spend the extra $ on a gen 1 product but after having it today it feels like I get along with it pretty well. I love just looking at my wrist while I'm at my computer for messages. I hate getting interrupted while working so like just turning my wrist to see what's going on when I choose to, instead of Messages & Mail from notifications, which drive me insane.

    I had originally had ordered the Sport watch 42mm BSB and cancelled it as I was worried about the Sport Screen getting really scratched up!

    I have ordered the SS WSB 42mm and should have it around the end of the world!

    :eek:

    Cancelled my original 38mm SGBSB and ordered a 42mm SSBSB. Then cancelled that one exchange for a 42mm SSWSB (Which I'm wearing right now :D)

    Yes. I slept through midnight preorder and didn't order my 38mm SG/BSB until that afternoon. Got a June ship date. Fast forward to Monday of this week, when I read about 38mm Green Sports shipping same day, so I ordered a green and cancelled my SG/Black. My Green was ordered Monday, shipped Tuesday, and came today, and I couldn't be happier...I think the silver case will look better with different bands than the SG.

    After not receiving my SG Sport on release day I tried on the SS Milanese loop in the Apple shop, canceled the sport with 24/4 - 08/05 date for the Stainless Steel with a June date. I hope its sooner but I feel happier with my choice for all the reasons you mention.

    I received my preordered 38 white Sport on launch day; returned it this past Monday to the Apple Store and ordered s 38 SS Milanese combo. I'm now without an Applewatch, but 5/29-6/11 isn't that far away ;P

    I did almost the same thing.


    I like the Space Grey, but I think the white looks better and gives you more band options.


    Sold mine for $220 over retail on Craigslist, ordered a White Sport. See you in June ;)

    When you cancelled how long did you get the Milanese? Did you get it faster?

    Ordered a 42 SS BSB @ 15:35 on the 10th, so over 7.5 hours after opening, and got a 4-6 week delivery.

    Decided I'd "chance my arm" and ordered a 42 SS WSB on 25/05, and it's out for delivery today :cool:

    I backed the Click kickstarter project, so will be getting additional bands anyway.

    I ordered mine last week and it's a July dispatch !
    I'm in the UK if that makes a difference I looked again this morning and it's still saying July for new orders!
    I know it's worth the wait as I have been for the fitting

    Got it on eBay, didn't want to wait for the band and really don't need a sports band at the moment.
