    Has anyone else had their status flip flop? My status has changed to "Preparing for Shipment" twice and each time within a couple of minutes it has changed back to "Processing Items". This started occurring not long after two separate preauthorization charges hit my debit card, one for the watch and one for AppleCare. So now, it's "Processing Items" again.

    Yup, mine flipped too. Went to "preparing for shipment" after cc was charged and approved. Now back to "processing items".

    Sorry, that means you got bumped to the May 8th shipment because there wasn't room on the plane.

    This may just be that the server you are sometimes connecting to for order status has an outdated cache.

    I've had this happen, but it only reverted back to processing once, so far as I can tell. Card was charged but it's still "pending" (normally lasts a day or two for me)

    ----------

    I'm 100% sure this isn't the case. Worst case scenario those of us this happened to get it early next week.

    you pressed refresh too many times on your order status page. apple saw what you were doing and decided that you just weren't ready for the watch so it's going to delay your order.

    That was my order as well. Charged between 2 and 3PM east coast time. Changed to preparing within the next hour. Hours late I went in to check to see if extra band or anything else changed when I saw it back at processing.

    Nope, my has locked on Preparing for Shipment since it switched over yesterday evening. Something seems off with it going backward like they didn't have inventory to allocate to your order (and others seeing the same thing)

    Moved from "Preparing for Shipment" back to "Processing Items"

    Last night around 5:00pm I got a change from Processing Items to Preparing for Shipment. My card was charged at 9:00pm. This morning I've noticed that on my order page, I'm back to "processing items". Anyone else notice this? 42mm w/ white sports band.

    Frustrating. And I know pending charges will remain on an account for 7 days usually even if the charge is not being put through.

    42mm Blue Sport and 42mm Milanese Loop strap (not the watch, just the strap). Watch Sport says 24/4-8/5. Got confirmation at 5:06AM my time, which means 6 minutes after preorder started. Both still say processing. Haven't been charged. I live in Canada. The Milanese Loop says April 30-May 13 for shipping.

    I have two on order, one Sport and one SS, both 42mm white band. Sport model is preparing for shipment, SS fell back to processing. Confirmation email for the SS was 3:05AM, Sport was around 3:08.

    The SS is mine, it is going to suck so much if I have to wait around on UPS to just get the Sport on Friday (Which I can't open...)

    I have a charge for both on my card, both used Apple Pay.

    It looks like it, yes. Furthermore, I don't think I've seen a single SS watch with black sport band change status at all. Interesting...

    EXACT same situation. Have a 38mm Sport with Blue band, and 42mm SS with White sport band. The Apple Watch Sport got charged and moved to Preparing for Shipment yesterday. I had a credit card issue on the SS model. I went online and fixed it. An hour later it changed to Preparing for shipment. But this morning it is back to Processing Items. Says 4/24-5/8

    It better get here Friday. I can't open the sport one either :)

    I'm calling when I get home from college. It's a very strange situation, because everyone who's had this happen to them has ordered the same watch model --> 42mm SS with White Sport Band.

    None of the SS Black Bands have even experienced the switch to "Preparing for Shipment," let alone changing back. This document was created early yesterday and I suspect none of the white band users have changed their entries back to "Processing."

    EDIT: Looks like only the 42mm are being effected.

    I noticed the same thing. My guess is that Apple is updating orders model by model and made a mistake updating the SS White Sport Band orders. That would also explain why the order status page went down for a while last night. It was right after that happened that people saw their status reversed.
