    How does Apple ship watch bands, overnight or ground?

    Thanks

    Sounds like two-day. My sport band shipped on Wednesday and it says will be here tomorrow (currently on track for that).

    Mine was shipped UPS Ground, expected to be delivered today (still on the truck). It was probably shipped Ground because the distribution center where it shipped out of is about a 4.5 hour drive from where I live.

    No clue...both my bands say preparing for shipment (Since yesterday)...I've been charged...but no movement.

    Actually...it's weirder than that.

    I ordered a black leather loop May 12...I had a charge on my account...it went to PFS for a few hours. Then went back to Processing and the hold fell off my account a couple days later.

    I ordered a Link Silver Band around May 15...got a charge on my account (hold) last night...now BOTH bands are PFS.

    We'll see if anything ships.

    I'm in the UK and ordered a 42mm sports band in green last Saturday (23rd May).

    It showed at the time 5-7 days shipping, but actually shipped on Tuesday (26th May), but it's still showing a delivery date of June 4th-8th... :eek:

    There may be hope after all, just received a text that it should arrive tomorrow. It's shipping fedex so hopefully they didn't use the residential shipping department as this is coming to my work address.

    it appears apple just created the shipping label instead of shipping my watch, no idea when it's going to actually ship. they did it right at the end of the ship estimate window, they have now missed their shipping dates.

    Mine all shipped UPS Ground and received the next day but I'm about 30 minutes from their Harrisburg, PA DC... Kinda wish they could offer pickup there #...

    Also just had my Link Band delivered Friday and wasn't required to sign for it which I thought was strange...
