I couldnt say I didnt see this coming, but for something like the apple watch, not a new iPhone or iPad. I am a little dissapointed in not being able to goto my local apple store the night before and having the famous "camp out". I remember for the iPhone 6/6 plus i was like 5-10 min late tring to preoder and the shipping had already been pushed back 2 weeks. So i did like many time in the past just planned on going to the store and getting one on release day. 1st gen iPad, 1st iPad mini, iPhone 4, iPhone 5, iPhone 6 plus were all purchsed on the release day after hours of sitting outside with many other anxious people waiting to do the same. I plan to be extremly on time on the 10th to pre order the apple watch and hope I can schedule and reservation for the 24th to pick one up in store as well.
