    Not sure if I'm going to pre-order myself (I have a Series 2), but for all of those that are going to pre-order a Series 3, consider this your waiting room!!!

    What are you most excited about? Which model did you order??

    Initially, cellular on the Watch was a non-starter for me. (Apple didn't say 'LTE' though.) I doubt I'll ever find myself on a paddle board and need to make or take a phone call. Sure, it could happen.

    But having a fully-functional GPS on the Watch has it's appeal, especially since I can pair it to my motorcycle helmet headset. So I got Keynote Fever® and am considering getting a 42mm Silver Al Cellular S3.

    I'm still not sold on the monthly charge, supposedly $10/mo at att. There also the issue of the electronic SIM. If I leave att (phone is already unlocked) how easy is it to take the Watch with me? Will it have to be unlocked or is it considered unlocked from the jump.

    I'm tempted to pre-order and then try getting one at a Store.



    Just checked Apple's site and the S3 does have LTE.

    I would love to get the Space Black SS in 42mm.
    I don’t think I can afford it and I might opt out for the 42mm Space Gray Aluminum instead. We shall see

    Jeff Williams said it had both LTE and UMTS. (Watch the Keynote at 35:00 or so, when he mentions that the display is the antenna for both LTE and UMTS.) No mention of CDMA, but I doubt it, which means that Verizon customers will only get service where there is LTE - that may be important, because I know there are some areas that I go to that get only CDMA/EVDO service.

    I'm still on the fence about AW3...I dunno. Nice Keynote presentation though.

    Love that Apple is enhancing functionality with AW3 but for now I'm very happy with my Series 2 stainless steel version.

    I will be preordering 2am central time on the 15th. I'm pretty excited. Still rocking my Series 0. This will hold me over until I can order my iPhone X.

    Will preorder upgrading from AW0 stainless. Wish I could just order the watch with no bands. I have a few already.

    LTE version
    Great choice! It’s going to be very useful.
    Have you decided on which material (aluminum, stainless, ceramic)?

    I had the Series 2, sold it 2 weeks ago. I'll be financing the LTE S3 when I pre-order my 8 Plus. Hopefully they have financing on the SS again over at T-Mo. I got my S0 SS with them, and then they pulled all Watches.

    So, this will be the first time ordering an Apple Watch. If I preorder on launch day (like right at midnight pacific), would I be able to request to pick up at an Apple store on a day of my choosing?

    It depends. What Watch do you currently own?

    The S2
    If you have extra cash, why not?
    It’s 70% faster and has LTE. If you don’t use the cellular feature, the speed bump itself is nice.

    I'm guessing that you can preorder and specify pick up at your local Apple store. I have done that with many iPhone purchases, but this will be my first time preordering the Apple watch.

    I'm preordering the S3 with GPS and LTE...going with the 42 mm aluminum with the fog band.

    Need to go to bed soon so I can get up and order at 3:00 am eastern time.

    Good luck all!
