I had a appointment for 1:15pm today, and I show and the store is not busy and one guy comes up and asks me what I as there for and I told him the Apple watch, then there was a another that was next to him. so since there was no else trying on watches they took me early


I went to the Apple Store to try on the Apple Watch the 42mm stainless steel version They did not have the 42mm SS with the black sports band, but I tried a 42mm Watch Sport with the black band, and the watch and band felt good, Then I tried the Apple watch the SS with Milanese Loop band, and that band felt good as well, then I tried the the Classice Buckle the leather band that felt good as well, that was with the stainless steel watch then I also tried on the link bracelet, they are took some of the links off of the link bracelet, and that felt good as well, but I kind of noticed since you have everything made of stainless steel it is a bit heavier. I also tried the 38, and to me the screen the small. The apple employee that was helping me said the 42mm stainless steel with the black sports band was a good choice, The apple store that i went to was the Fair Oaks Mall, in Virginia, and that store was not that busy, I think the Genius bar was the only part that was busy

Sorry I did not take any pictures, I was surprised on how nice the screen was on the watch.

Thats awesome.. did you preorder?

I did pre-order on April 10 like right when the pre-orders started I ordered the Apple watch 42mm SS ( Stainless Steel) with the black sports band, and I also order the Milanese Loop band as a extra band, so just incase if I need to get dressed up nicely, I have a nicer band to put on the watch.

My order confirmation came at 3:07am EDT( Eastern Daylight Time), my delivery estimate is the 4/24 to 5/8

Oh yeah! Same order except I ordered the 42mm SS Milanese and an extra black band with space grey SS pin. I liked the space grey pin a little better the the regular SS pin on the black sports band.

Weird that they didn't put the sports band on the SS for you, that's what I ordered too and when I told the guy that he swapped them out for me.

On the Apple Store site in the watch section.

Never thought of that! No wait, I did. All I see are links to watch videos, see all the watches, pre-order, lots of pics and info on how to buy. Zero on how to make an appointment...

Did you go to the store site? Not the apple.com site, the store.apple.com.

You will be surprised on how small the 38mm on compared to the 42 when you see it in person, the photos do not do justice.

Yeah same here. 42mm is the only way if you're an athletic guy with any musculature
