    All,

    I'm pretty familiar with SS Watch ordering because I've been following those, having ordered them for me, my husband, and our eldest son.

    My daughter is 14 and is interested now that she's seen ours and had a chance to play around with them.

    Which Sport models are currently moving fastest?

    She has no interest in SG, and there are a million threads warning people not to buy those anyway due to demand.

    So, which of the others? Looks like pink is also slow, but moving now.

    Your thoughts?

    According to an earlier post today, looks like the green 38mm model ships pretty quickly.

    Thanks. I think I read that someplace. I'm half tempted to order them all and see which come fastest at this point. All the early adopters have ordered. I'll just cancel the slow ones.

    I agree the green sport is probably shipping pretty quick. My 12 year old daughter bought this one (I ordered for her on launch day at 2:04) and she was the first to get hers in the family! If you haven't seen them, it is a pretty green color. Fits her personality. :) It's bright and youthful without being overwhelming.

    I like Blue the most, but if I order Green too, and it moves first, I'll want to exchange for a Blue, then I'd pay for it and wait, right?

    gah what to do ?!

    the 38mm Green are moving faster from what I see. looks like the Blue's are not as fast anymore. think a lot of people jumped on the bandwagon, but l was a little late

    Ordered a blue 38mm for the wife Thursday night and its arriving today in Seattle, she previously had a 38mm white on order since 10th and hadn't moved, so we tried for the blue and arrived very quickly.

    Order the green and then do a band swap for blue??? Can that be done?

    ----------

    I almost want to for experimental reasons. LOL.

    That's what they all say on the order page, but a lot of people are reporting that they are getting shipped shortly after being ordered.

    Well I just placed a order for the green 38MM. After looking at the 2 sizes I'm almost thinking the 38MM will fit my wrist better. I'm coming from the original Pebble.

    I've seen you can by calling customer support, and buy a Blue band, then wait maybe 2-3 weeks (maybe faster?). once you receive the blue, then you Mail back the green, and they'll give you a refund (for the green)

    ----------

    can you update us later, please? :)

    This is probably the best way to handle it. Order the one that ships fastest and just do the band swap.

    The watch is the same. Only the band is different.

    I just placed an order for a 38mm green sport, too. Let's see which one moves up in the queue fastest.

    Hmm I hope green sport is the fastest as that is actually the combo my wife wants after seeing mine. Just ordered it tonight with apple care hoping to see movement by the end of the week.

    White bands (38mm) may be shipping quickly now. My moms order went from June to May 21-jun 4 to coming tomorrow, all changing today.
