    My 38mm SS Link Band is delayed another 3 days because somehow it went to Korea instead of Canada and back to it's origin. What.

    That's crazy. At least you'll get it soon.

    Be careful. I can see your battery percentage in that pic.

    I wonder if that's the same thing which has happened to my 42mm link band (band only) being sent to the UK.
    It was dispatched on Thursday (21st) with an estimate of Friday (22nd), then suddenly the estimate changed to this coming Wednesday (26th) and the carrier's (TNT) estimate changed to Tuesday (27th).
    The carrier's tracking is just saying 'in transit' with no actual scans recorded, though a little exclamation mark appeared next to it after the update in estimated delivery; on closer inspection the exclamation mark is an image called 'exception.gif'. I'd put it down to bad luck combined with today being a bank holiday.

    weather, plane problems, etc... UPS loses money on delays doubt they're delaying the shipment just for the heck of it.

    I am confused: why is the OP showing his battery charge a big deal?

    I just correlated the ping strength hitting cell towers around the time of the post to the battery strength in the picture, and I just pinpointed his/her location!!

    There's probably a NRT -> YVR flight that is faster than going through the US hubs.

    Exactly what I was going to say. It's been to so many places even before its life begins.

    that's nothing. I'll go one better. UPS was to deliver on Thursday 5/21. There was an arrival scan. And then nothing. For two days. It was out for delivery, but never made it. UPS "lost" it on the way. They have no record of it after arriving in Atlanta. And the UPS driver stopped in front of my house and left after 3 seconds. Yea, it's "lost"....probably in the driver's hands.

    After 4 hours of phone calls to UPS and Apple, another is shipping as a replacement and a lost package tracer is out.

    Just got it and the link bracelet is bloody awesome. I can see why it costs the same if not more than the watch itself. The mechanism that allows your to detach the links without tools is amazing.
