    They said the sizes are 40 and 44. Is that just with the bigger edge to edge screen, or is the body actually bigger too?
    No, the body is almost the same. Only the screen is larger.

    That’s what I had thought.

    The body is a little larger, but the old watch bands still fit.

    The GPS version works with everything from the 5s to the new XS and XR series, while the cellular version works with everything iPhone 6 and newer.

    So, yes.

    One thing had me confused, and forgive if this sounds stupid. Reading the fine print off to the side it says, something on the order of "compatible with iphone 5 (something) and above with IOS 12. 12 ? My phone is on 11.4.1 and is "up to date". What am I missing? I tried to go back to copy/paste this but the store is being updated

    iOS 12 is coming out next Monday Sept 17. You will have to update your phone to iOS 12 in order to pair with a Series 4 watch, which will come with watchOS 5, but the iPhone 8+ will get the iOS 12 update anytime on Monday or later, whenever you install it.

    Rumors suggest pre-orders are very strong, with delivery dates well into October unless you ordered day one.

    Yes, you can use it with the 8Plus, 7/7Plus, haven't tried pairing with models so I can't speak to that.

    I ordered day one and my anticipated delivery is mid October. Maybe I was a bit late on day one....Or in the wrong spot on the planet.

    I ordered on Monday morning from BestBuy and it said ready for pickup on the 21st

    Sadly Best Buy does not carry the Hermes edition, so I have to stick with my pre-order shipping end of next week. Unless by the off chance I can get one in my local Apple Store and cancel my pre-order.

    Picked up my 44mm silver aluminum GPS & LTE yesterday at the local Apple store. I preorderd it and the pick up process was quick and painless...and very nice and helpful associates.

    What a BEAUTIFUL display! The increase in size is in height, not width. And I cannot not believe what a difference 2mm and "edge to edge" display makes!

    I am very happy that I upgraded to the series 4.

    I am interested in everyone's comments.

    Mine says that now also. I went to the UPS site and put in the tracking number. It indicated it is in the process of being cleared for export from China.

    All mine said as of two days ago was "processing". I didn't have a tracking number yet.

    Ooof. Sorry to hear that. Mine was just updated to delivery on Tuesday, the 25. We'll see. This is my first Apple Watch and I'm trying not to be anxious.
