    I think there is mounting evidence they are over stocked on blue.

    -I ordered "late" at 3:08 and mine prepared to ship and shipped as early as anyone else.
    -They offered blue models to devs for early delivery next week.
    -What just happened to you.

    While I prefer navy, like my iPhone 6 leather case / iPad case, it happens to match our company logo / t-shirt color perfectly, so my boss and I went blue to show company pride!

    MR just posted that Apple will be doing in-store exchanges of bands only. Worth a shot.

    I rolled the dice and ordered the same one. Let's see which of the THREE actually ship. Odds are they'll cancel one. Oh well, if I have to wait anyway...

    As I mentioned earlier, Apple is giving the option of exchanging the band, instead of the whole watch, at their stores.

    Actually, the blue band is growing on me although I originally ordered black.

    Just ordered one to try it out, thanks to you and pshifrin for the info - I admit it's incredible impatience on my part, but I'm even thinking this is going to move before my 38mm Space Grey Sport which had the original 4/24-5/8 window.

    I also admit that that honestly, I probably should have gotten the silver at pre-order - it just looks better with all of the bands (especially the Milanese, which I want).

    So here's to us getting watches that somehow magically ship today...and hopefully not getting charged for two watches :)

    It's not unreasonable for this to happen for the least popular combinations. These boxes are sitting somewhere in a warehouse and no one is opening and swapping bands...

    Thing is, this makes my 3rd order. I wonder which one they'll cancel. I really don't care anymore. I never really 'needed' it anyway, just got caught up in the hype.

    I really need a life...:(

    I just ordered one just to see if it ships. I will report back if it does.

    If not I will just cancel.
