    Hey guys. New to iMore. I'm super stoked. Ordered my Watch Sport (blue) this past Friday May 29th with an expected ship time of 2-3 weeks and delivery dates between June 22-26. First thing Monday morning it changed to preparing to ship. Later Monday it shipped out via next day air! It's already out for delivery and I should have it sometime this afternoon. This was my first ever order though Apple and I must say I was surprised how quick they were. Overnight delivery when I only went with the standard shipping option. Is that normal? I'll post pictures when it arrives!

    It depends on the contents of your order. I ordered on April 13th and received a June shipping estimate (no specific dates). Well, I actually received my Watch on May 4th. Welcome to iMore, by the way...

    That's what I figured. Apple probably had more blue sports in stock. I was relialistically expecting it to be shipped in 1-2 weeks especially with Apple soon to offer all models in the stores. I'll take a 3 day ship time over a weekend all day long. Thanks for the welcome

    Today will be my first full day with the Watch. I am just using it as I would any of the other fitness smart watches I own. So far so good.

    I am not going to charge it during the day even though I have a car charger already. I want to get an accurate estimate of battery usage.

    Congrats to everyone have gotten their watches and or their PFS/Shipped notices!

    Same here. My battery usage seems very minimal. I've had mine on for an hour now and it's only dropped 1%. But I don't think my notifications are working. Mostly because I haven't seen any yet. I know Facebook notifications are not working. I set everything up to mirror my phone and double checked the settings. Should be working. I might need to re-pair...

    Waiting for my extra charging cables to show up today. I plan on having one at home, one at work and an additional one for traveling or just to keep in my living room.

    Make sure the iPhone is locked to test the notifications... That is one of the things i love most about the Watch/iPhone intergration. If you get the notification on the iPhone when its unlocked it does not also go to the Watch. It made me crazy with all of the other smart watches I had that everything would go off at once!

    Thanks bmaf. I did read that last night and thought that might be the issue but I received several Facebook notifications this morning while my phone was locked and none displayed on the watch. Looks like I've got some fiddling to do...

    Also, make sure your iPhone (not just the watch) notifications for all the apps that you want to show on your watch are on and that the sounds are enabled, if you want haptic taps. I wasn't getting taps until I turned all of my notification sounds on. I get all my desired notifications now (Facebook, untapped, etc.) even if there's no watch equivalent. Also, turning off and restarting the watch after making all of the settings could help.

    I can't get Facebook to show up on my watch or get notifications.. It's there on the list of watch apps but not the layout. I'm I missing something?

    Facebook will not be in the layout because there is no Facebook watch app. Notifications will come from your iPhone. Here are my iPhone notification settings for Facebook:

    just took a walk over to the Apple Store and they sucked me in with their shinny goodness!!! I think I am going to order a Millinese Loop and Leather Loop!!

    SOOOOOO glad they only had the sport bands in store right now or it would have been a $400 trip for sure (the two bands, plus the extra charger and iPhone mount I bought)
