    Just wondering if anyone preordered from Best Buy. It is Thursday and it still has not processed to ship. Don’t know how it would ever get to me for release date unless they over night !

    I preordered on the 14th and mine still says waiting to process. It also says it will be shipped by the 21st so my guess is Best Buy hasnt gotten their stock yet and when they do, they will start shipping them out.

    My guess is we get our watches on Monday. At the earliest.

    As a side note, I went on the site again and tried ordered another watch, it said their current stock was all accounted for and they could email me when they will get more.

    I set mine up for shipping . When I preordered I did not see the option for pick up. From what you said, looks like none of the preorders have moved out of processing.

    You should be fine. They can’t change the status yet until release day, if it’s shipping that’s different.

    I pick mine up tomorrow as well. Ordered this morning (44 silver sport)

    I preordered yesterday 9/19 on the Best Buy app. 44mm silver aluminum and they had it for pick up on launch day at my local Best Buy. Apple had delivery dates ranging from Oct 15-24

    Yea, that’s what I don’t understand...why does BestBuy have more than Apple? I’m guessing because Apple is available throughout the world

    As of 6am release day it still has not moved to ship. I find it very weird that there are no updates or emails explaining when to expect. They did charge my card as soon as I made my order last week.

    Not more but more people ordering at Apple than Best Buy.

    I did not pre-order the Watch, but did order the Xs-Max, coming today (on Truck) and I regretted not ordering the watch. I checked everywhere online.. Not a single Space Gray GPS/Cellular 44mm anywhere within 50 miles of me. But I am leaving town on biz to Eastern WA next week.. and checked there.. and oddly enough found 1 Apple - Apple Watch Series 4 (GPS + Cellular), 44mm Space Gray Aluminum Case with Black Sport Band - Space Gray Aluminum... plus I am tax exempt at BB and had a $5 credit... so for $524 I have a 44mm I can pick up when I drive by on Tuesday!

    I guess I can wait 4 more days! (albeit hard)

    Big fail at BestBuy. Preorder was supposed to be there today. Report in the store is that it didn’t even ship from Apple. Next time I buy from the Apple Store and have it shipped.

    I ordered my watch on 9-19, it said it would be ready for pick up at my local Best Buy today. Nothing yet. Still in process. I don’t think I’m getting it today. Fail.

    I preorder mine 9/18 and selected to pick up at store. Was notified it was ready about 3 this afternoon and picked it up a little while ago. Worked well in my case.

    If you look at the fine print they say preorders can be shipped at anytime ..... not guaranteed for launch day.....never doing a pre order from them again!

    I preordered on the 14th as soon as they went live for the 44mm SS s4. I got the shipping info on the 21st saying I would have it on Monday.

    I was in my local Best Buy tonight and they said they won't even be seeing any Apple Watch Series 4 models until sometime later next week. Yikes! I'm glad my AW S4 44mm (GPS + Cellular) in gold will be here on Monday.
