    I called apple yesterday, and told him I had a 3:03 time. He said that it should be one of the next batch of charges. Also that it should arrive between Friday - early next week.
    I guess im in this batch but I Hate to hear early next week! I want my hands on it FRIDAY to enjoy the entire weekend with it!

    I ordered a SG sport with black band in Toronto.. Still no joy on the order status front. Haven't been charged for it yet either. This is giving me anxiety.

    I ordered an extra charger the other day and it just went to prepared for shipment this morning. Maybe they are getting to the east coast people today!

    How many east coasters ordered accessories and when did the status change for those. You could be right.

    I haven't heard of a single Space Gray aluminum watch switching to Preparing for Shipment yet.

    My extra charger switched to preparing to ship on Monday and shipped yesterday. I'm in he Boston area. Expecting the watch to switch from prepping to shipping today. Still waiting on the extra band to move from processing though.
    On another note, stopped by my local Apple Store yesterday and one of the employees said they should have most of the bands and chargers available for sale on Friday. Hoping that's true

    Exactly! Mine is being delivered today as well but no word on my 42mm SS black sports band. At least I'll be ready to charge the thing if/when it comes in!

    I think its pretty funny (and somewhat sad) that some of the peeps here are actually angry!

    We're ALL eager to get our watches, but in all reality the only thing wrong here is your own personal expectations.

    Nobody was ever promised delivery prior to the 4/24-5/8 window. Today is 4/22. If you do not have your watch in hand by 5/8, then Apple has not met the expectations they set. ANYTHING other than that is on you.

    At this point, plan on your watch being delivered on 5/8.

    That way, if it comes earlier than that, it will be a happy surprise.

    Well, I think the frustration is due to expectations Apple set about being able to have the watch in hand on launch day. A 2 week delivery window is not reasonable when they set expectations for the 24th. Apple pretty much admitted they screwed up so at this point it is what it is, but it's still annoying to not know when you'll be receiving the watch if you ordered in the initial batch.
    Having said that no one has anything to be angry about yet since deliveries won't start in most cases until the end of today.

    Hi Suggs, no disrespect indented, but Apple did not set the expectation to the specific date of 4/24. Everyone in the first wave (myself included) has a range of 4/24-5/8.

    Sure, this is different from Apple's usually way of ordering, but the fact that they gave a range of dates this time means they specifically set the expectation to not be one specific date.

    That being said, I took Friday off and I'm still checking my bank every few hours; but I'm hopeful, not angry :-)

    I understand where you are coming from. With this watch launch, Apple has not done what I consider to be a fantastic job, and I'm not just referring to delivery dates.

    Well, my charging cable shipped last night and FedEx says it will deliver today. So obviously they are shipping from very close so still plenty of time for my watch to ship for Friday.

    So Ill just speak for myself. If I wake up at 3am in the east (actually 2:45) to order a product so that I will have it on launch day- I really expect to have it on launch day- Apple has previously set this expectation for past launches. I understand being bummed and disappointed- Would I be angry- probably not but I am a firm believer in not telling people how to feel... Again just my opinion

    Now that is what I call a positive attitude.

    Well, I, too, was up on April 10th at 2:45 A.M., awaiting the Apple online store to go live. That didn't happen until around 3:10 or later, and so I was already behind the 8-ball. When I put my 38mm SS with Milanese loop in my cart, it said it would deliver April 24-May 8. When I got my order confirmation email at 3:19, it said it would deliver May 13-27. Sigh. I also ordered a small black sports band, and that has a delivery date of April 29-May 8. Both are still in the "processing" status. Just an overall disappointing ordering experience. Should have used the app to order. Live and learn! I am hoping that the watch will deliver earlier than promised.
