At least then as long as I were near the front of the line I'd have some ****ing certainty. I'm done with this edge of my seat "When will it come? Who knows!" guessing game BS.

I'd rather be there too. Haven't waited in a line overnight outside of an Apple Store since September. Starting to get withdrawals!

Don't worry, I bet there are some people waiting in front of stores. And BTW, does anyone has any updates on the situation in these "selected" locations where AW will be available tomorrow?

They are fashion stores. There seem to only be 4 or 5 of them in the world.

I'm gonna go when the store opens tomorrow to see if I can get some bands. I guess I can just wrap the loop around my wrist and wait for my watch to ship.

I've been wrapping a tape measure around my wrist and crying myself to sleep all week long.

Qripsy,

I totally respect your opinion and I'm sure that sitting outside the store with lots of other Apple fans is fun. But for me, I'm thankful that I can have a product delivered right to my door. Totally saves me time and money. For those that enjoy the overnight experience though, you'll have plenty of other chances at future iPhone launches. They just couldn't do it this time due to so many different configurations being offered.

Cheers.

I'd prefer to wait in line too.

With the 6 Plus, I was the only one in the office who had one for nearly two months. No pain, no gain. :cool:

not true with a 30 sku product. they could have have sold out of the watch you want within the first 5 people.

They could have launched with 4 models of watch. They could have had stock of black leather bands, black and white sport bands and maybe a few colored sport bands. They would have sold just as many watches and people would fill in with other bands later.

Tell that to 65,000 fans in each of 32 major US cities....

tell that to the millions comfortably at home each year :-0

seriously though, I've been in plenty of Apple launch day lines in my life. they've become infested with scalpers. what as once a pilgrimage to be with other like minded fans, has become an uncomfortable mix of people that don't even speak the language who have been paid to sit in a line and snap up inventory for overseas sales. I'll pass.
