Hey, guys. I was able to go online, buy the Watch, and walk into the store and pick it up an hour later. So here's my saga - Last Thursday I get online to order the Watch, I pick out the Gray Alum, with black sport band 42mm. There was a choice to have it shipped to my home or pick up in store. So I thought I'd check the store option and it asked me to choose the store in my zip code and I did. But there was a link to "see more stores" and I clicked on that just to see what it showed. I'm in Dallas so there's several stores in the area. I scrolled down and one of the stores said it would be ready for pick up tomorrow. What?! As it was close to closing time I thought maybe it's in store now so I called them and they said no it'll be tomorrow. So I hung up and went back to paying for it so I could get it tomorrow. But then all of a sudden it says Nov 3rd! Drats! Because I delayed someone else grabbed it. I missed it by seconds and now I was going to have to wait 5 weeks! So I thought I'll keep trying this each day and see if I get lucky. So the next day I go through the same motions and it's now saying Nov 4th. Dang. But the next day Saturday, I do it again and it shows it avail NOW at Willowbend Mall 11 miles from me. So I pay real fast. (have your payment info already in there to save time IT WON'T LAST!) A half hour later I get a text that it's ready to pick up. I drive over get it and walk out. I told the Apple employee this and he was surprised. So if you want one fast just keep doing this twice a day looking at that list of all the Apple stores in your area until you get one. If you get it and you already have 1 on order just cancel that order. Of course the more stores around the more chance of this working but it's worth a shot.
