    Anyone know what the exchange or return policy is? If I get mine on 4/24 but decide to switch to a different one do I order new and wait for it to come or is there a return time parameter??

    It might be interesting to know what happens to the bands if you return them.
    Except for the cheap sport ones, I mean.

    That's the obvious answer. But do you really think they check every two parts of each band to make them available for sale again?

    I doubt it.

    If you get a refurbished iPhone, the casing and the batteries are always brand new to avoid complains. Only the logic board is recycled as far as I know.

    If it is opened, I think it has to go to recycle. Hell, knowing apple, they may just recycle all returns. That is probably what they do with iPhones even if it is sealed.

    I was hoping not to go without one while I wait for replacement. More interested in exchange to different watch type.....guess I have to preorder the other one I think I want too.

    I'd go try them on before you start placing more orders. Save yourself the grief. After all, you might think that your decision is either A or B but you end up hating both of them and the one you do like could end up on a huge backlog.

    I thought I'd want the stainless steel with the classic leather band. I was all set to order it. But then I fell asleep and missed the first hour of ordering. so that model was way far off. I considered order the same but with the leather loop cause my boyfriend got to see that band a few days ago and said it was really nice. Also thought about the SS with the sport band and pick up a different one for dress later. almost hit the button but decided to wait. managed to get myself a try on appointment for around lunch time.

    When I had the watch on my wrist I realized that I hated the Stainless Steel. too dang shiny for my taste. I work a lot outside and could just imagine the glare etc. On a lark I tried on the dark sport with a black band like my BF had ordered and I loved it. I'm buying this more for what it can do than the looks and why not save close to $200. I put the order in via the app right then. yeah it said June but I know from experience that those dates often change to much sooner. And if stock hits the stores before that I can always go for a product reservation and cancel the online one that I won't need anymore

    Bands perhaps but watches no. They don't do that with iPhones either. Sealed box iPhones are returned 'closed box' and go to the shelf. open ones go to a refurb center and are sold online as an open box item.
