    I pre-ordered two watches on 10th Apr. one 38mm white sports for my wife and one 42mm space gray sport for myself. Both watches were ordered at the same time. She got her's delivered on launch day and I'm left sulking and waiting for my watch to be delivered in June. Anyone else in this situation?

    Yep. Ordered the 38mm sport white for myself on 4/10. It arrived today. But went to do the try in on 4/13 and decided the 42mm was better for me. Still waiting on mine.

    But, I got to play with hers for a little bit, so I'm ok with waiting.

    I know, right? My space gray sport was ordered at 3:01 and still has a May 13-27 ship date. I haven't cancelled it...yet.

    Not sure what I'm doing yet. I've considered selling it and upgrading to the stainless steel version.

    Yes - I gave my wife my blue sport after her pink sport failed to ship. Would have been nice if they had come on the same day.

    I may try ordering another blue sport to see if that might ship before the pink one.

    I'm the chick with the 38mm. BF's 42 is as you see in my sig. He says it doesn't bother him, but he's been decidedly grumpy tonight and I left him be to play Bloodbourne.

    DH received his today. Mine (pink) is still processing, so I ordered the blue on Thursday. Blue is scheduled to be delivered on Monday. Meanwhile, I have hardly been allowed to touch DH's new watch.

    I don't think my husband is registered here. But he's definitely sulking. He texted me to say he was looking at a Pebble Steel. I told him to go for it so he brought it home and at least had that to play with while I unboxed mine. It's a really nice watch but every time he looks at and compares the Pebble to my Apple Watch, he looks grumpy.

    I'm really liking the Pebble. It's got its own charms. But yeah, it's no Apple Watch. I hope his 42 mm Classic Buckle and my sister in-law's pink sport get here soon.

    I did let hubby try my watch out. We tested it out for phone calls and texts. It's great, though I am not sure I'm getting all my haptic taps. Initially the taps startled me so that I looked like I was wearing a shock collar. So I turned them down and maybe I overdid it. :confused:

    Aw. I tried to hand mine to BF first thing. He doesn't want to play with it until he gets his own.

    My wife is out of the house living the dream with her new watch, and I am at my desk reading about the watch! It is cool though. Her watch was for her birthday. I just decided to get one after we had committed to getting hers. I have the May estimate date.

    Same here. Wife loves her 38mm white sport. My SG 42mm, ordered 1min earlier at 08:03:19, is paid for but nowhere.

    Same here, wife loving her SS Mil while I wait patiently for my SS Link. Still I got to help set it up which was cool. It seemed much more responsive than the demo units at the Apple store.

    Spookily similar here - SG 42mm ordered at xx:04:47 and wife's White 38mm ordered straight afterwards. The latter arrived on launch day but mine is nowhere to be seen...

    The good news is that my wife is really happy with hers and promises we can work together on the heart rate monitor to see what can be done to raise her HR as high as possible... :D We just need to be careful not to accidentally call her Dad in the process! :eek:

    Joking aside, I've had a (fairly brief) play with the Watch and it is really nicely done. The materials are top notch, even on the sport, and the functionality seems to be very good even with v1.0 of everything.

    I don't know about you guys but somehow this time I'm more patient than before and am quite relaxed about waiting a few more days for my watch to come to me. Maybe I've been watching too many apple ads but I feel like MY watch is out there somewhere and will get to me in it's own time.

    Hopefully next week! ;)

    Agree 100% to the first part of this. But I think it's bc I got to "play" with hers and quickly learned it's really something you play with, like an iPhone or iPad.
