    I'm just curious of what pre-ordering on the 10th does for you.? The watch still won't ship until the 24th but on the 24th I can just walk into a store and buy one so what advantage is it?

    If there is a demand for it, you'll get it before a lot of ppl do.

    In the case of the  Watch which is a wearable device it really doesn't make sense. I want to try on both sizes and gauge the fit before I buy

    You should be able to do so on April 10th.

    I plan to visit the store on April 10th to check out the watches/bands, make my decision, and preorder on my iPhone before I leave the store, so I won't have to wait in line on the 24th. Of course, I may revisit the store on the 24th wearing my watch just to smile at the people in line!

    Quick question. Does a pre order mean I will have to still pick it up at a store or will they ship it to my house?

    You MIGHT be able to walk in to a store and buy one. Depending on the supply/demand.

    Usually either/or. Not sure how this will work, but for most previous releases, you could choose to have it delivered or to pick it up in an Apple store.

    Is it safe to assume that shipments will arrive on the 24th for those who preorder, like iOS devices have been?

    More than likely.

    the risk of doing that is not being able to get the watch on the 24th if you order a model that is in high demand, I will order as soon as pre orders hit and then walk into a store later that week to check them out

    You read my mind. I've decided to preorder at midnight to assure my preferred configuration shipment gets in the queue. Then, I'll visit the store to confirm my pre-choice is ok. If it's not, I'll then cancel my preorder and try again.

    I just read that walk-ins (no pre-orders) will most likely not be able to buy an apple watch on April 24th. Only those who pre-order will be able to "reserve" to buy an apple watch if the demand is high. Apple is also keeping the inventory purposely low in order to better gauge the true demand of the watch on release date.

    I read that no walk-ins was for the stainless and gold watches but not for the Sport one.

    SAN FRANCISCO (MarketWatch)Unlike other Apple product launches, there will be no long lines snaking around the block on April 24 when Apple Watch becomes available to consumers.

    That is because Apple Inc. will only sell them through reservations, according to CNET.

    You need to pre order to buy one. You can't just walk into the store and pick one up.

    Seems they won't have many in store, so better chance of getting one if you preorder. And won't have to deal with the chaos and madness of an apple store on a product launch day.

    I would rather pre order so that I can get the version I want, and not have to stand in line. It might be in stores but the stock might be limited
