The smartwatch went up for pre-order today with a shipping date of April 28 to May 8 for most of the models. However, within a few minutes, the estimated shipping time of the Apple Watch Sport slipped to 4-6 weeks. This was followed by the shipping estimate of the stainless steel Apple Watch increasing to 4-6 weeks before reaching June.
As for the Apple Watch Edition, the estimated shipping time of the 18-karat gold watch slipped almost immediately to June once the pre-orders went live.
Apple had already confirmed in a press release issued yesterday that the Apple Watch will be in short supply because of the overwhelming demand for it. The company had also mentioned in its announcement that the Watch will only be available to exclusively order online initially.
