    Hi, I thought I'd start a thread for people with pre-ordered S4 watches expected to arrive October second till October 9th

    I ordered the “normal color” Stainless Steel 44mm watch with sport band @ 00:09 (or 09:09 in my timezone Germany)

    Please post here if your delivery date moves at all.

    Was your delivery originally 10/2 and it moved to 9/21?

    So then it was never "now 9.21", it was "always 9.21" rending your posts in this specific thread useless.

    Received confirmation email at 12:09 am. Ordered a 40mm and 42mm stainless sport band watches. The 40mm is on its way for launch day delivery. The 42 shows Oct 2-9 delivery and the status has not budged since I placed the order. I'm not expecting early delivery and haven't heard of anyone getting bumped earlier, not even in the 9/28-10/1 group (though I may have missed a post). But I'm hoping that perhaps it will arrive by the end of next week rather than the following.

    My wife will be a happy camper tomorrow though.

    Actually I need to correct my last post. I AM starting to see lots of reports here (just in the last half hour or so) about people in the 9/28-10/1 and even the 10/12-10/19 getting charged and "preparing to ship" status. No movement on my 44 yet but this increases my hope of receiving it next week as opposed to the following. I'll report back if anything changes.

    Exactly the same here:

    Pre-ordered the 44mm Aluminium Space Grey Series 4 with Sport Loop
    I was only able to get on the website at 3:15 EST
    Received my confirmation email at 3:16
    My window though is Oct. 2nd - Oct. 10th, and it still says Preparing to Ship (I haven't checked if I was charged yet, as I don't want to look at my bank account right now -- unhealthy denial on my part)

    I'm still pretty bitter that the website didn't let me in earlier, but I'm trying not to bitch and moan about it. I'll get my watch eventually (I thought of going to buy the watch in Store as I'm sure I'll be able to find one before Oct. 10th, but decided it was not worth the trouble). I'm still hoping it'll be before the end of the month though, but I guess I'd need to see some movement pretty soon (especially if some people with the 10/12-10/19 window are seeing movement). Crossing my fingers for all of us.

    I also ordered 2 third-party bands which I thought would arrive way before the watch, but at the pace it's going, I'm not sure anymore. It took from Sept. 14th until Sept. 19th for them to make their way from Santa Clara to Compton, then today it arrived in Carson, CA (can someone explain why it has to make so many stops... This seems excessive), and now it has to travel to a small town outside Montreal that usually gets mail way later than we should... At least I won't have watchless bands for weeks, which could be depressing :p

    Ordered 44mm SS with white sport band on 9:06. Oct 2-10 delivery window. No movement, no CC charges. I am guessing some movement may happen after the weekend. German Store.

    Just checked and it now says it has shipped! The Apple Store app still says delivery between Oct 2nd and 10th, but when I click on the tracking link, UPS says delivery by the end of day today!
    Crossing my fingers that’s actually true

    ÉDIT: just looked at the tracking details and it says it left China today at 2pm... I have a hard time believing it’ll get here and be delivered today if that’s the case... I’m happy with Monday if so.

    Oh really? That's weird... maybe they have a fixed amount of devices for different countries..
    Or the 40mm model is just less popular.

    sadly still no movement.. i guess i won't be getting it earlier than the projected date :(

    I ordered ours at exactly the right time. Confirmation was like 4 minutes after the hour.

    The 44 SS is at Oct 5-12 window. I guess there was a lot of demand there.

    Mine ended up stuck in China for ever. It now says delivery tomorrow by end of day (which is still heaps better than Oct. 2nd-10th. It has bounced around in the US a bit, and is now in Ontario. Hopefully it'll get out of there quickly and reach me soon enough.

    I feel like shipping is still not very optimized overall... I guess it was expected that nothing would happen over the weekend, as it took from Friday until Sunday to get it out of China, but then it shipped out of China on Sunday, arrived in Anchorage later that same day, then took 2 hours to be sent out to Louisville. It stayed in Louisville 6 hours (seems long) before heading out to Mount Hop, Ontario. It arrived there Sunday evening. It's kind of silly that within one day it traveled from Shanghai to Alaska, to Kentucky, to Ontario, but then it takes 2 full days to get it from Ontario to Montréal. Obviously there's clearance it needs to go through, but still, looks very inefficient.

    It says "We currently have the package. The receiver requested clearance by a non-UPS broker" for now. Tomorrow (after work) can't get here fast enough. I pushed hard at the gym Saturday (stayed there almost 5 hours, with 2 full hours of cardio), wish I had had my watch then to start closing my activity rings with a good workout.

    Woohoo! My card was charged tonight around 10:00 PM PST and my order status changed to "Preparing to Ship." Dates have not changed, but at least it's movement. :)

    The processing sequence seems a bit random..

    Mine will be coming to switzerland. So it would likely take a similar route.
