    Set up? My alarm on my 5S goes off, I roll over, pull up the app store, place the order, and go back to sleep.

    Would the Apple Store app be faster than the apple website? I would assume the website will be swamped so I want to know what will be faster.

    I highly recommend using the Apple Store app for preordering.

    like the 3rd person in this thread said, it really is as easy as rolling over and placing the order.

    I remember the first time I used the app I was shocked my order went through within 30 seconds. I was use to the apple site taking at least 30 minutes to get an order to work.

    A lot of people have suggested that the app works better. It didn't help me during the iPhone 6 release however -- both the website and app were unresponsive for a LONG time.

    I would think it's because the app has to backend less to Apple's server since a lot of the data is stored locally and even what it needs to grab from the server is smaller and less intensive.

    It could also be because Apple shows preference to the app versus the website for return customers. ;) The world may never know.

    Not sure if you understand what I meant, I was referring to the amount of computers to pre order the apple watch. I don't understand what you said. Lol

    Simple setup. I don't expect to need more than a couple browser windows and the iPhone App (not pictured).

    Apple Store App wins! Preordered my Sport 38mm Pink Band. Now waiting for the online store to open up for me, so that I can order my spare bands with a gift card.
    ETA: Green Band, Milanese Loop and spare charger all ordered! Not bad for 2:15am CST.
