    First we get to buy brand new Apple Watches, and then we get to binge on a TV show about the least likely superhero in the world to use one!

    That's where we are clashing. You are worried about what's going to happen in the future. I'm worried about what happening right now. When the future comes, I will act accordingly if need be.
    This right here. I'm fully aware that Apple will introduce a 2nd gen in the future. Key word being future. Not today, not next week. This is the only AppleWatch available and that's what I want to get.

    Woke up this morning expecting to spend $800. Went to get an oil change and ended up replacing my breaks for $800... BUT I will not be deterred. This. Watch. Is. Happening.

    iPhone 1 was released on June 29 2007 and the iPhone 3G was released on July 11 2008 that's 13 months
    My bad. Was looking at the discontinued dates. Still 13 months (iPhone) and 11 months (iPad) is hardly "shortly after".

    I think we can safely say that the servers will start melting about 5 min before pre-orders start.

    For the iPhone 6, they stopped working minutes before launch. I wasn't able to preorder until like 15 after from what I remember.

    You must've been pretty lucky. I remember refreshing for about 40 minutes before I could even get the Apple Store App to connect.

    My hope is that although demand will outstrip supply, overall demand will be significantly (like very significantly) lower than on iPhone launches and thus the servers won't choke so bad...

    so how many devices are you guys going to use to try to complete a preorder? I think I'm going to prep both the web store and the Apple Store app on my 6 plus....debating on firing up the iPad Mini as well.

    Imagine if the relatively mixed reviews were meant to control demand in a "so dumb, it's brilliant" kind of way.

    So I'm a lowly shift manager at a coffee shop...not exactly raking in the $...
    I'm also a total Apple fanboy, Buy a new MacBook Pro every few years, Have an Apple TV, and have stood in line and bought every single iPhone on day one since the very first one in 2007.
    Anyway, I'm wondering on the details of the ordering process.
    My dilemma is that I will not have the $ to purchase one until next week at the soonest, but by launch date at the latest.
    They haven't specifically stated that the watch will have no in-store availability on launch day. They've only said that at the time being orders are only taken online (until further notice I suppose) and that is the preferred method.
    I've always been a "have to have it on day one" kind of guy and kinda bummed out if the store won't have one for which I can wait in line for on the 24th.
    I would pre-order one if I could wait to pay for it on the launch day, but I'm pretty sure that's not how it's going to work.
    Just wondering if anyone has any more concrete info as it is still fairly ambiguous.
    Kinda coming to terms with the fact that I may be waiting a few weeks after launch to get one due to my lack of funds tonight

    I'm wanting a silver sport with white band, against the husband's wishes. I'm suffering through nursing school, and need to get active again, with all the stress weight I've unfortunately gained 😜. Plus, I have to be up early for clinical tomorrow, and was gonna sleep, but I'm kind of unsure, since I'm so excited

    They don't usually charge until they ship your stuff, from what I recall. Hopefully you should be set!

    Did you change your mind? Thought you weren't getting one.
    I tired of resisting. Someone with a Pebble said they grow on you. He destroyed his first Pebble working on a lawn mower. Then bought another. I learnt all this today. It sort of had an impact.
