    From what I have seen the cut off time is 6pm local for next day air via UPS. That would mean that 6pm PST is really the absolute last minute for some of these orders....and honestly...I think it's already too late my friends ....

    I don't think there's really a cutoff time. If the watches have already been stored at the distribution centers, we could have a surprise gift on our doorstep tomorrow without even been notified. That's what happened to a lot of iPhone 6 people

    I hear people saying that this time around, but I have never ordered anything from Apple myself nor do I know anyone who has where they were not even charged the day before...

    Normally I would agree, but i have witnessed cases where nothing has happened until that day of and then surprise. Although these cases are not as common, and I don't believe that any of us should count on it. It could certainly happen, and I really hope that for us it does.

    Yeah, if your card has been charged but you haven't received a shipping notification, I guess you could hope that it would show up unannounced tomorrow. But if your card hasn't been charged yet, I think you're probably out of luck. Sigh...

    I think people in this thread are holding out hope (like me) that something will happen...I don't think it will...

    I even just looked at the UPS planes in the air using flight aware and there is nothing going to PA which is where the people I know getting watches tomorrow in Michigan had them dispatched from....sigh

    I ordered my 42mm space gray Apple Watch sport at 3:04 AM EST. 3 minutes after preordering began. No charge to my AMEX. No shipping email. No status change. Received the infamous "email of death" last night. If I don't receive my watch tomorrow, I'm calling Apple and won't be hanging up until I hit someone who can provide me with information.

    Apple has been nothing but sketchy and vague about this godforsaken launch and if they'd simply COMMUNICATE with their customers (whom loyal enough stay up until the wee hours of the night to pay them upwards of $400), there wouldn't be near as much anger as there is now.

    I know I can receive my watch from tomorrow through May 8th. That's not the point. Everyone knows that's not the point. I didn't order at 3 AM because I wanted to be at the end of the delivery window. If someone with a delivery window in June receives their watch tomorrow and I don't, someone at Apple is going to answer for that.

    I have. More than once. Always Fedex and always I get notice at like 3AM on Friday. North Carolina.

    It's weird that we've seen no Fedex tracking info.

    It's game over gents. We have to wait until next week or perhaps even the week after.

    I'm pretty upset about this. Like the above poster, I didn't wake up at 3am just to be two weeks late to the party.

    What the fug Apple, way to disappoint.

    I'm really hoping that Apple has different models through different carriers, so maybe FedEx has all of the link bracelet and leather loop watches (and the pink Sport), while UPS got all the other ones. If people with FedEx maybe won't get notified until the morning of delivery and no one with those models has seen any movement, it gives me a very small amount of hope.

    It's probably pretty unlikely, but still... maybe there's a chance.

    Edit: Maybe the modern buckles too—I don't think any of those have seen any movement either.

    You think this is bad? Wait until the Tesla Model III comes out. The backorder could be years.

    What about the two planes that are in air from Anchorage to Lousville right now? Possibility?

    I hear a theory that those planes will land and then go to random locations around the east coast and then tomorrow morning we will get charges and shipment notifications...but I honestly don't see that happening myself....at all...

    :(

    I am in the exact same situation as you. On every single detail. My email confirmation came at 3:03am. I feel the same. I just don't get it.

    It's over for this week folks. Let it go. If you don't have a charge to your CC/bank acct yet and you have had no "shipping" email from Apple there is no need to hang around tomorrow. It isn't going to show.

    I'm from Michigan. No watch for me tomorrow. My 42 mm space gray watch (email confirmation for my order received at 3:04:09 AM on April 10) is still processing. :'(

    Not saying it will happen this time, but I wasn't charged for the first iPad until the day after it delivered. I thought I was going to have to let them know I had received it, ha ha.
    Also, my iPhone 6 plus showed up without any shipping notification. It was a close call too. Delivered at 7:30 pm launch day, I just happened to check the front porch before leaving out of town the next morning!!
    I was happy to get my phone, but wondered how that would have went down if I had flew out the next morning only to find out my phone had been on my front porch without notice.
    Kinda scary
