    Is Apple really going to sell that many watches (and 4K Apple TVs) or should I be able to easily place my order in the morning? I don't think they sell like iPhones.

    I'm not taking any chances. I'm still on the original so I don't wanna miss out. Better safe than sorry. Plus I have an excuse to get a little late night gaming in to help me stay up till 3am. Zelda Breath Of The Wild is amazing on the Switch btw. :D

    Last year, the majority seemed to not think the Series/Series 2 was not going to be a need to pre-order, and then they found out shipping dates were elongated and in Store stock was almost nonexistent. So if you have the willingness, I would pre-order.

    I'm staying up (I'm in the west coast though so only until midnight) to pre-order. I have the original sport model and it's time to upgrade to black SS model. LTE and stainless will be nice!

    I have the original S0 Sport, and I am up and still torn between the SS or getting the sport again. Leaning to the cheaper side with the sport, but want to have the new look of the SS.

    I'm in the same boat as you. I think I'm gonna splurge and go with the black SS this time. I want the classier look the SS provides and when I go to gym I can throw my Nike band on. 18 minutes!

    Wil you be getting LTE or only the GPS model if you go with the SS?
    *edit, I am realizing you don't have a choice on SS models.

    I think I would've got the LTE version anyway. 3 months free if you order through Verizon so I'll get to see if the $10 per month is worth it. I'm guessing it won't as I always have my phone on me anyway.

    I will go for LTE as well, since when I made the mistake of getting WiFi only iPad I was sad I hadn't spent the extra $$ just to have the function available.

    Happy Pre-Order! Be back around for the shipping wait and the iPhone X Launch!

    I'm still up. Going to order the black LTE. Still trying to figure out which band to go with. Either the Black Milanese Loop or the Black Classic Buckle. I have two minutes to decide :)

    They were a minute late for me, bought at 3:02 AM!!

    Confirmation email from Apple at 3:02 AM for two Series 3 Apple Watch Sport watches with LTE and ship date of 9/22. Looks like I'm all set for launch day!

    Why can't I see anything on their website while others have bought it already?

    Use the Apple Store app, it always comes up faster than does their website when accessed on a computer. Their website is still down for me on the east coast but I used the app and bought 5 minutes ago with confirmation at 3:02 AM.
