apple watch pre-order

Heads up everyone, the Apple Watch is now available for pre-order. You can grab yours from either Apple’s online store or the Apple Store app on your iPhone or iPad. Some of us are able to get through, while others aren’t, so be patient. As usual, it seems the Apple Store app is your best bet.

As a quick reminder, the Apple Watch comes in three models: Sport, Apple Watch and Edition; two sizes: 38mm and 42mm; and with various bands. The Sport is aluminum and starts at $349, the Apple Watch is stainless steel and starts at $549, and the 18K gold Edition starts at $10,000.

For those still on the fence about pre-ordering the Apple Watch, the following links may prove useful:

If you do order an Apple Watch tonight, be sure to let us know what model, size and band you decided to go with down in the comments section below!

Update: as many have noted in the comments, pre-order inventory for many models went very quickly. The 42mm Space Gray Sport model, for example, is showing ‘June’ shipping estimates at just the 30-minute mark. There’s talk that these dates may be a bit off, but I wouldn’t hold my breath.

    I woke up on time and then fell asleep for another hour because I hit snooze. My shipping date is in June for the 42mm Sport with white band. I’m not particularly happy.

  • Rowan09

    I think that’s the most popular, that’s what I got. I was going to get the stainless steel, but then I thought to myself that I usually sell the old devices and purchase the new so I couldn’t justify the price.

  • Shami

    Omg i couldnt get through on the UK apple store app so maybe after ten mins (08.17am)after trying i tried online and for the space gray sport 42mm was showing JUNE lol crazy man.

  • Nathan Smith

    Fell alseep unfortunately, ordering two hours late rather than the stainless steel wit black sports band. I opted for the 38 mm with the classic leather buckle to still get the 4/24-5/8 ship date. Also ordered a black sports band which I may cancel and just pick up in store.

  • Matt Campbell

    Hey I got a 42mm apple arch in the stainless steel with the leather band with the classic buckle. I also got the Milanese loop and sports band also! Can’t wait!!!

  • Tobiatch

    I preordered my Stainless Steel and just went in Store to check it out. All I can say is that this is the most impressiv piece of technique & design I saw since my first iPhone. Absolutely Amazing!

  • Alain

    That moment when you’re so hyped for April 24 and you end up seeing JUNE as a shipping date on the US Store and you remember that there is no official Apple Store or anything in Lebanon!!

  • Jordan Agaran Riley

    Got mine right at 12:01, says 4/24-5/8. Ordered off the Apple Store app. Plus with my touch ID set up, it took like 5 seconds. So happy lol. Got the silver aluminum with the white band


    so i have to upgrade to ios 8.3 to get the watch app. any chance a version for jailbroken phones will be available in cydia?

    • iPhoneWINS

    42mm Space Gray Aluminum Case with Black Sport Band – JUNE!!!

    You guys are now getting into make-to-order system now? What gives Apple???

  • M L

    Now we just need a jailbreak to be able to use the iwatch. Only runs on 8.2 or higher. Hope it happens soon.

  • Andres

    Yea I’m sure that by July there will be a jailbreak for 8.2, my watch seems to be shipping in July

    • M L

      Well as long as it’s ready by June for you 😛

  • Josh

    Nice strategy Apple!
    It’s all about the business, who cares about the customers? Shipping until June? That’s a total joke haha. But it’s strategy. People instantly think that a lot of people is getting it when in reality, it’s Apple manipulating dates. If the shipping date was still 4/28-5/4 people will not really get excited about it and therefore say that the Apple Watch was a failure.
    We as humans, want what others have, that’s a fact, so if you think everyone else is getting it you instantly want it.
    When will the Apple Watch 2 launch? October-December? Money, money.

    • iPhoneWINS

      it better be half as thick as this ugly bubble watch

  • Nathan

    So overpriced…

    • iPhoneWINS

      yeah not nearly worth it at all.. and i could accept the weak tech if the design was perfect but this watch looks feminine and not techy enough..

  • I ordered mine while Djing at the club last night lol I hop on the app
    right at 2am Chicago time and was given a 4-6 week ship date (May
    13-May27th) for the 38mm Space gray Black sport band. Funny thing was when I was on the app I forgot that I had my left thumb registered for touch ID and while I was re looking over my order the purchase went thru lol. The Apple store on the iPhone is on it

  • I don’t want apples stupid watch.. I’m happy with my Microsoft band..

  • I thought it was extremely easy, order the 42mm SG Sport and then went back in and purchased the Loop. Dates show 4/24-5/4 and for the loop 4/29-5/12, not bad at all. Probably going to take longer for accessories to show up like my bumper and stand.

  • liorgr

    When I started the process it said “4/24 – 5/5”, But by the time i place my order, shipping estimate was 4-6 weeks. Any chance Apple will change those date? if for example people cancel, etc.?
