Apple Watch try-on appointments notice

9to5Mac has learned from several Apple employees that try-on appointments for the Apple Watch will begin on April 10, the same day the pre-ordering process is scheduled to kick off. You’ll be able to book an appointment through Apple’s website or via the company’s free of charge shopping app for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.

Although it will not be required to make an appointment to try on the Apple Watch at Apple’s retail stores come April 10, doing so will ensure that you’ll get your fifteen minutes of hands-on time with the device using one of the try-on stations in Apple’s brick-and-mortar stores.

“Try-on appointments give every customer an equal opportunity to get hands on with Apple Watch,” reads Apple’s communiqué sent to retail employees.


“Starting April 10, appointments can be made online or through the Apple Store app — they’re recommend, but not necessary,” reads the message.

Again, people who waltz into one of Apple’s retail stores on or after April 10 will be able to go hands-on with the device, provided try-on stations have not been booked in advance at the time.

Will you be making a Watch appointment?

      People wait in lines for high demand products such as video games, shoes, etc. I’m sure if they had appointments they would make one. Congrats to Apple for knowing how to organize a huge launch.

        I really think you are an IDB employee/whatever under a pseudo account. Just saying.

  • Stand in line for 15 minutes to stand in line for 15 minutes. Classic Apple.

      I know people love to comment without ever reading the articles, but you took it to a whole new level by not even reading the headline? Appointments buddy. It’s called making an appointment….

      • What I am getting at is the fact you will be standing at a counter for “15 minutes” playing with this watch in order to, in turn, wait to actually buy it.
        Not to mention how “shocking” it is this got leaked because now stores will, perhaps, be overbooked and people will wait in a line outside to get their 15 minutes.
        But hey, hopefully I’m wrong.

        I understood you buddy…..this Fanboy is just IDB trying to play both sides under the radar.

    I’ll probably make an appointment immediately after pre-ordering my watch, if only to get my hands on it ahead of time. ;D
