what a fail. apple just helped move me off the fence.
what version of the watch?
I got a SS 42mm Milanese loop...
Shipment 1 Delivers: 4/24-5/8 by Standard Shipping
Same here... no option for in store pickup? So basically they lied to us?
So you're not getting the watch because it's popular. Okay.
It's funny the amount of people throwing their toys out of the pram because they are in the 2nd batch of dates...
Fine by me. Hopefully this moves my ship date up!
Yes, what a fail ... Apple created a product that millions of people are trying to pre-order all at one and sells out fast.
Cool. Get it cancelled so somebody grown up can have your slot.
literally how i feel right now i'm so upset
I have to admit, I'm bummed too. I know it's ridiculous...but it would have been nice to have it on opening day.
Something you guys need to take into account is that Apple is always very conservative with their shipping dates.
If they give you a date range, you'll often get the device at the very beginning of that range (sometimes even earlier). If it says May 13 - May 27, chances are you'll get it on or around May 13th.
That's a positive way to look at it #
Well I booked a try on appointment for my wife an I... first available tmr at 1015 at aspen grove in Co. so we'll see if we can purchase one then..... I did get a pre-order but will cancel the second I can.
When I pressed purchase at 12:03 it said 4/24 - 5/8 and my email says May 13- may 27.
I don't know where I'm going to be living as I'm moving to LA May 15. So will cancel and just have to wait until June I guess. At least t gives me time to try on first and read reviews and figure out which size I want.
What? If you had read this site anytime in the last few weeks, you would've seen references to no store pickup. I'm pretty sure there is an article on the front page from just this past week saying such.
Sounds like spoiled brat syndrome.
Cry me a river
Oh really... that's why every presser put out that in US stores you could order for in store pick up (appointment) even going as far as having the option there but not being able to choose it)....Here let me quote apple for you "Reserve for pick up in store: choose your apple watch online and make a reservation to buy it at an Apple store. We'll have it waiting for you."
my bad I figured apple actually meant what they said... how stupid of me.
PLUS not sure if you know or not but MR is not officially part of apple..... SO anything put here on MR is speculation at best UNLESS it came directly from apple. ( that clearly said there would be that option as presented below)
You didn't have to cancel it, you could of had it shipped to a family member or a friend who could have gotten it to you.
People will cancel and orders will move up, just like the iphone 6/6+ release.
Go ahead, cancel.
Apple initially intended to make the watch available for in-store pickup, hence the messaging you took a screenshot of. However, they did issue a press release this week indicating this would not be the case after all. I think they were trying to make as many watches available as possible and not have a large amount of them tied up in store stockrooms.

Good. More Apple Watch inventory for us.
The lack of in-store option was a mess and they just did not do a great job gauging demand. They had way too many options so at each level they were likely thinly stocked. I mean I paid with Apple Pay at 12:02am and the screen shot still showed 4/24-5/8 but email came and it said 4-6 weeks.
Anyway, it's cancelled and now I can wait and see if I really want one.
You said it yourself. Millions of people are ordering it. They are going to sell a ton of them....
Please cancel your order, thank you.
