    Seriously?
    Most popular SKU, have seen very very few ship.

    What's the theory?
    What happened?
    Where are they?

    Space grey sports model anyone?

    Does anyone have the SG sports model?

    I preordered on the 10th and no change in status (June delivery).

    I cannot see anyone reporting that they have this model, and also people who have preordered other models way after have had them shipped.

    I was in 2 minds between black and silver anyway, so have now preordered silver sports with white band. Let's see which comes first...

    Tons of people still waiting and very few shipping.

    Underestimation?
    Delayed manufacturing?

    Why are there no watches to ship?

    When the AUS group posted no one was getting space grey I knew it was bad news.

    I hope Apple calls a press conference where they'll show a live stream of helicopters dropping pallets of Space Gray watches into the Chilean volcano while Tim Cook laughs maniacally.

    A large quantity of 42mm Space Gray watches shipped yesterday. Mine is out for delivery as we speak and I should have it by this evening.

    Not relative to the other watches that have shipped, and/or the estimated preorders...

    Those threats are for tracking orders, etc.
    The point of this was to speculate or sort out what the problem or bottle neck might be.

    Sorry ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    There are many theories as to the whereabouts of the space gray sport Apple watches but until Apple comments, they'll remain just that: theories. No one here can give a definitive answer.

    I ordered at 3:04 AM EST, 42mm space gray sport with black bands. No charge on my AMEX; no shipping notice; no tracking number; still "processing"; got the infamous email two nights ago.

    Apple should be ashamed at their lack of communication during this launch. I say should be because no one at Apple probably is. It's been two weeks without so much as an email updating us on the status -- maybe something a little more than "we didn't forget you, but here's your vague delivery date again in case you forgot."

    I didn't stay up until 3 AM to put my preorders in because I wanted to receive my watch at the end of that delivery window. There is no excuse as to why I shouldn't get my watch today. And if I don't (which despite my optimism seems highly likely that I won't receive it today) I'm going to call Apple and work my way up the chain of command until I hit someone that can explain to me why my SS Apple Watch and Apple Watch Sport aren't on my doorstep.

    I ordered a 38 mm SG sport with black band at 3:01AM EST...May 13-27
    and 2 42mm at noon on the 10th...June.

    Apparently, Apple doesn't know how to make gray or black. :(

    What they should do is contact us with information on what is available and allow us to change our orders. I wouldn't be surprised if some of us would just upgrade to stainless steel just so that we can get the watch sooner.

    IDK why but i laughed at this. I pictured him doing the dance in front of copters dropping the pallets in to the volcano.

    Yeah, actually, I was charged as soon as I ordered, something that the Chinese Apple Store does I guess.
