    Apple is delivering earlier than expected. When I ordered on 9/9, delivery date was Sep 26 - Sep 28. Now it is being delivered middle of next week. Got tracking number - just waiting for package to be handed off to UPS and start its journey from China.

    This is what happened to me when the first Watch launched 18 months ago. I missed the launch date by seconds (in seconds!) and got an ETA of about two months away. A week or so later (don't really remember) I got an email with a much closer ETA.

    For many years now, Apple has tried to under promise and over deliver, because in earlier days it was the other way around. Congratulations on your new ETA!

    I should have order my watch right after ordering my phone. Regardless, I literally just ordered mine. Expected delivery 18th - 31st Oct. Yeah, virtually weeping here...

    So far so good. The s2 is significantly faster. Great upgrade from the s0.

    For some weird reason, on order day, I didn't order a watch, just an iPhone 7 Plus, 128GB, Black. Then on 18th Sep, I decided to order an Apple Watch 2, Stainless Steel, Space Black.

    Delivery date 18th - 31st October.

    Woke up this morning, received an email with tracking info from Apple. Delivery 22nd September!
    Well, well, what a start to hump day

    PS: I have a Series 1, brand new in the box. I bought it from Best Buy on Saturday, and still haven't opened it. I did so, hoping my S2 would be delivered early. Time to return it

    On my way to the AppleStore see if they have the Apple Watch Sports series 2 in silver on stock.
    According to the AppleStore app they don't but I'm not sure if that's accurate or not.
    It's only 2 miles from my house so there is no shame in checking it out myself .

    I ordered the Apple Watch Series 2, 42mm Space Gray Aluminum Case with Black Sport Band on September 10 and they have me listed delivering between Oct 11-24.
    I wanted to wait to get to the store to see how the different sizes looked on my wrist. While I hate to wait, I'm glad I did as I was pretty sure I'd be ordering the 38mm, but after seeing them in person, they were smaller than I expected.

    It's the second best way, but still a great way. I've been saying that the Apple ship dates are subject to change as Apple likes to under promise and over deliver on them. Years ago they were pretty horrible and did just the opposite.


    Time to return it
    Well done, resisting the temptation to open the box! Makes the return super easy. Clean getaway.

    I ordered my Au Sport from B&H. Today I got an We're So Sorry email that it's on a slow boat from China. Ok, they just said it's on backorder.

    There's no ETA, no shipping date. So when it does ship it will be a complete surprise. Yippee. I guess.

    If I'd ordered from Best Buy or Targt, at least I'd have received a gift card for the inconvenience. Oh well.

    Congrats!! Mine just went from 3-5 weeks to 3-4 weeks. Not feeling excited quite yet. There used to be a website we could use to track the shipments as they flew over here to the states. Does anyone recall that site?
