My local Apple store told me they only had a few watches available on opening day and of course they are now completely sold out. I prefer to buy locally as opposed to online. How long before the stores restock?

You need to keep checking. They usually update stock early in the morning. I was looking for a watch Friday night and every store in Southern California (and there are a bunch) had none showing for store pickup. I checked a few times in the wee hours and right around 8:30 or so, every store around me had the Space Grey 44MM ready for pickup. Snagged one yesterday.

As we speak, a store 14 miles from me has them for pickup. You could always have a friend/relative pick it up for you and ship it to you.

The Apple Store app (and the website) update their inventory at ~8:00 am local time. So check it every morning.

My experience:
Friday night sold out of everything. No local pickup available.
Saturday 7:00 am sold out of everything. No local pickup available.
Saturday 8:00 am sold out of everything. No local pickup available.
Saturday 8:02 am nearly every color/size was in stock and all available for local pickup.

Good luck

Not much tends to happen on Sundays. Maybe tomorrow. You really never know when a given store is going to get a shipment or what will be in it.

To check if store has stock are you just checking if it’s available for pickup? How do you check multiple stores at once?

I don't see any GPS only, although I can't imagine why you wouldn't want the cellular model. That's what makes it worth having for me.

South Coast Plaza
Brea Mall
Los Cerritos
Victoria Gardens

All have the cellular model available for pickup today.

Depending on when you check, the apple store Watch page will have a "Check another store" link.
