    For those that have pre-ordered the Apple watch, how was your experience, in comparison to previous Apple launches (iPhone, iPad, etc)?

    Near as I can tell, things were similar to the last phone launches...

    I was smarter about ordering, this time.

    Same thing as before for me, though -- hesitation over shipping times led to a near-loss of opportunity.

    But it went quite smoothly -- got my app working as of 3:03 AM, ordered by 3:05 AM. Forgot about AppleCare+. Considering getting it, given the replacement costs.

    Seems to be worse than phone launches. Don't think they really had much of any stock, because those who ordered minutes after they opened still have to wait 4 weeks to months. Think apple kept stock low because they didn't know how it would sell and going to be awhile before shipping times come to reasonable times. Not sure why apple didn't have more stock on hand.
    ladyc0524 and dpham00 like this.

    That doesn't seem to make much sense that they would intentionally keep stock low. Now, if they didn't have the time to make them, then that would make more sense, imo.

    Yes it makes perfect sense. Creates that false sense of demand and the "I need it now" mentality.

    Has the reverse effect on me. The long shipping dates turns me off. Oh well I'll just have to be patient until mid May

    Interesting point. Not sure that I agree with that tactic though.

    In my opinion, the pre-order launch of the  Watch went as expected -- Selling out within a matter of minutes....
