    Hey guys,

    This is not a troll post, I am as excited as you all are.

    But to avoid refreshing the order page into oblivion, would like to recommend what I do:
    Get this Mac app, it monitors web pages you select down to every minute for any changes:
    http://intuiware.com/apps/changes-meter

    And if you combine it with Growl + Prowl plugin + Prowl app for iOS, you get a push notification to your iOS device if it spots any changes (as long as your computer is on, remember to have Changes Meter start at log in)

    And then insert the below URL (replace with your own order number and email address though - and remember you must use the email address you used for shipping info when placing the order):

    Code:
    https://store.apple.com/us/order/guest/ORDERNUMBERHERE/EMAILADDRESSHERE
    example:

    Code:
    https://store.apple.com/us/order/guest/W4455645/email@email.com
    I am sure there's a similar app for Windows, I just don't know what it might be called.

    Good luck, hope the orders start moving to preparing to ship soon!

    Just wish I didn't have to wait so long to see if the app actually works ;):rolleyes:

    Considering we know the process now with the :apple:WATCH chargers (or maybe we should've known with previous launches), your order status will change several minutes after your credit card was charged.

    So, all you need to look out for is a push notification from your credit card company's website or app that you've been charged the proper amount.

    I'm not bothering to waste anymore time on Apple's Order Status page until I know my card has been processed first.

    My card is issued through a local credit union, they are not high tech enough.

    Lol, fair point! All I can say is that I vouch for it because I've used it many Apple product launches over the years :D

    I hope it's a few days late, or even more. I'd much rather receive a properly debugged watch.

    My iP6 has been one big aggravating mess. After some time Apple finally replaced it. With one that was marginally better. In a short time it too became unbearable / unreliable. Once again Apple replaced it. At least this one is significantly improved.

    Based on what I know about Apple, the upcoming iPhone will be a much better product. I'll be pre-ordering upon their release.
