    Figured I'd start this for those of us across the pond:

    44mm Stainless Steel, White Sport Band, ordered by 8:08, delivery 1-8th of October.

    I had to use the website and couldn't use Pay (long story), and it got confused about in-store pickup options. Was telling me October 1st or later by the time I got confirmation :(.

    Ordered the 40mm Series 4 gold aluminium cellular with the pink sand sport loop! Delivery 21st! Ordered as soon as the page refreshed at 8:08am - upgrading from a Series 2 :apple:

    I've not really been impressed by the watches massively for a while - but as someone with a heart problem the features coming later on (ECG) are beyond beneficial for someone like myself.. can't wait! (Plus the new screen looks lush)

    Just ordered Series 4 (GPS), 44mm Space Grey Aluminium Case With Black Sport Loop - upgrading from a 38mm 1st generation so I'm excited to experience the improvements!

    Delivery for me isn't until 8th-15th October, do they ever ship earlier than predicted?

    Annoyed as got the Apple Watch Series 4, GPS, 44mm Silver Aluminium Case with Sport Loop, Seashell added to the Apple Store app but then when I went to buy with ApplePay it gave no shipping address option so by the time I’d changed to manual and put my address in it had slipped to 1st - 8th October.

    Going to check with John Lewis instead...

    I had same issue with shipping address, but got away with a 21st delivery prob due to demand for Hermès being way lower.

    It’s odd because I’d made sure all my details were correct yesterday like I always do the day before a launch.

    Paid on my phone using apple pay (as this was given as an option).. all appeared to go though but then payment declined as it's over the limit for apple pay. Really annoying; on hold to make the payment again.

    Over the limit for Pay? It doesn't have a limit, unless it's your bank freaking out? If the order went through but then your bank declined it, my experience last year is that if you sort it with your bank Apple will retry the payment later and hold your order place, though I do remember calling them after I'd sorted it with my bank to get them to manually retry it.

    The bank said it was over the limit for apple pay transactions.. the bank said I need to discuss with Apple. No issues with my account.

    Can confirm no limit on Apple Pay. I ordered a 64GB XS Max and 44mm SS with it.

    I had similar problems with the app, access was immediate but Apple Pay kept saying card declined (for no reason) and wouldn’t let me select any preset delivery addresses... finally Chrome web have me consistent access to the store, bought the Mac then went straight back for the watch - I wanted space grey aluminium with the sport strap but noticed delivery wasn’t launch, so I backed out and got the black silicone strap instead (my third ) launch day delivery though 8:13 confirmation - same card that has been declined

    What the fork? That's so weird as there really isn't supposed to be any limit with Apple Pay with retailers who fully support it (obviously Apple are included in that). Pleased I switched to Monzo to get away from this kind of absurd regular bank stuff.

    Suddenly my order does not show up in the iphone app anymore. Anyone with similar experience ?
    If I click on the order number in the email confirmation is shows up ?
    I havent seen this before.

    Edit: It shows again now after status changed to handling order.

    Was tempted and got as far as putting it in the basket but then decided against it as I’m not waiting two weeks after release day. I can go into a London Apple store if I’m that desperate.

    Was glad to be honest as want to wait to hear about the music app. I’m guessing it’s the same crippled app as os4. I’ve got a series 0 watch and it’s been dreadful since they crippled the music app with the launch of os4. I doubt they will roll out any more improvements to the app in os4 so a new watch is the only way to potentially get improvements in the future. The music app and the time are the only things I use the watch for. I’m just not interested in all the other gimmicks.
