The experience of pre-ordering the Apple Watch wasn’t the “best experience” Apple had promised, at least if you were trying to pre-order the device on Apple’s website. The Apple Store website was available after a few minutes delay, which meant that I couldn’t get the Apple Watch of my choice. I was planning to pre-order the Apple Watch Sport with space gray aluminum case and black sport band. But by the time I tried to add it to the chart the shipping dates had already slipped to 4-6 weeks.
Fortunately, I had the presence of mind to check if any other models were available with an earlier shipping estimate. I finally settled for an Apple Watch Sport with the Green Sport band with a shipping estimate of 24/4 – 8/5. I’m hoping that it will be delivered on April 24th.
As you might have read, Apple Watch was completely sold out for launch day delivery in less than six hours, and the shipping estimates have slipped to 4-6 weeks for almost all the models.
Please take the poll below to tell us which Apple Watch you pre-ordered. And if it wasn’t your first choice like me, then please share your experience, and let us know know what is the delivery estimate for your Apple Watch. I haven’t included the option for folks who couldn’t buy or didn’t plan to buy the Apple Watch because the delivery estimates were too long, but feel free to tell us the reason in the comments below.
