    Default Anyone get/getting their Watches today (16th) from third-parties?

    Frankly, I'm surprised that anybody would, but I guess that depends on the whole supply/demand thing.

    Some people already got a $50 So Sorry notice from Best Buy saying that today won't be their day. For $50, I could live with that. It's another band or something.

    Apple is sold out of the Jet Black iPhone as of yesterday or earlier. I don't expect the demand for the Watches to be nearly as great.

    So, who (in the US) got theirs already?

    I guess not.

    If those people are like me, I'm not getting an Watch Series 2 because my current Watch fits my smart watch needs perfectly.

    I didn't expect anyone to get one by the 16th, but I'm a little surprised no one is reporting having received one 10 days later.

    I wonder what BB and Target have paid out in gift cards for phones and Watches that they promised for the 16th.

    There's been a mention of a financially troubled shipping firm having ships stalled, and are now finally moving. Recently the Port of San Francisco has gone to (I believe) 24/7 operation, ostensibly to eliminate long waits in line. Coincidence? You be the judge. Other conjecture is Apple just having far too little product available.

    Good question. Like you, I'm thinking the smart move would have been to order from Best Buy and get $50 for waiting an extra week or two. Maybe I should let Apple know I'm willing to wait on my Nike+ for $50 per week.
