    Relax!!! lol
    It depends on where you live. So it'll be there when the UPS truck is usually there.
    For example, I work in a hotel in a commercial area, the UPS truck is always here between 1.30pm and 4pm. My AW came at 4pm of course! Lol.
    Should I had it shipped to my house it'd have been around 7pm, because I know that's the time that the UPS trucks hits my neighborhood.
    It's just common sense (?)

    My mother's came at 5:45 pm. It was delivered by the business delivery guy (not the residential guy) and he did it after businesses closed for the day. He said it was his first watch delivery (this was Tuesday).

    That's probably why they have such a late window - because they are using non-regular route drivers sometimes.

    UPS Next Day Air: by 10:30 AM
    UPS Next Day Air Saver : by 3:00 PM

    I initially got confused as well when my watch didn't arrive until later in the afternoon. My iPhone deliveries always arrived at 10:30AM, until I realized those where being shipped by Next Day Air. My watch was sent by Next Day Air Saver, which was why it arrived at 3:00PM.

    Btw, these times were for commercial delivery (I had it shipped to my business). Residential address have a larger time window I think.

    I had mine held at the UPS Customer Center for pickup, and it was ready for me at 8:15 am. I drove over and picked it up during lunch. If you can do it, it's much better than waiting at home, missing the delivery because you're in the restroom, and the driver didn't leave the package on your porch even though you've left the signature authorization on the door, and you wind up having to drive to the Customer Center anyway to pick it up at the end of the day because you can't take another day off from work. :)

    The 10:45 time might have been for commercial/businesses but home delivery can be as lat as 8pm or even later.

    I had mine held at the UPS CC which is about 15 minutes from my house. Easy Peasy.

    Yeah, I think it really depends on where it's shipped to. UPS comes to our house anytime from 9AM to ~5PM, but I got it delivered to my work and it arrived around 10AM (as that's when UPS usually shows up here).

    Nice that you got it at last. Mine came at 5:19 PM Eastern on April 24.

    I really do think UPS follows a general route -- 2 days earlier I received a package at 5:19 PM.

    Maybe just a coincidence.

    According to UPS tracking:
    Personally, I was out of the building and a coworker signed for it. I got back and opened it up around 11:45.

    Correct. I got mine at 6:30 PM. Driver said he had a lot. I'm sure the signature thing slowed them down. Most UPS deliveries are drop & run since they are on such a tight schedule.
