    I really think Apple did this entire thing based on a "made to order" scenario. Think about how many different options there are between case, case sizes and bands. Also what better way to gauge what you need to send to stores than to look at your pre orders as a guide. I don't think this was a product shortage at all I think this is just another well orchestrated sales plan by Apple. I think orders are being filled based on what combos they can put together with the products they have on hand. *end of two cents*

    Looks like we have nothing to worry about for now. I see that it was already posted so consider this a re-itteration.

    Gotta believe if our dates say April 24 - May 8 and NO ONE has a date later than the 24th, that we will all soon get our status updated and confirmation email soon. I am sure its because they are going by model and the black on black model is the most popular. At least that is the story I am sticking with

    All right, so there's at least one Canadian with a status change.

    Good.

    (I'm in Toronto, have a 42mm Stainless Steel with Milanese Loop on pre-order. 24/4-8/5 ship date. No changes yet.)

    I'll put my expectations at next week, and let Apple try to beat them.

    I doubt you were the one individual on planet earth that got this email. Had it been legit I'm sure in this forum is not the only place we would have seen it. If I'm wrong, then shame on me for being a hater and enjoy your early shipment.

    I ordered the SS 42mm with Milanese Loop at 2:05am on 4/10 and got delivery dates of 4/24-5/8. As of right now mine is still Processing! If it is like that tomorrow, I won't plan on being a prisoner in my own home to sign for something that's not coming Friday! Lol from Texas

    Same here, also in Texas. My sport watch is prepping for shipment, my charger shipped, but my steel with Milanese loop is still processing, as is my extra blue sport band. I even requested vacation time on Friday to be home and sign for it.

    I've never ordered online from Apple before, always in-store. Does anyone know if these should ship with am or pm delivery, typically? I know we'll find out soon enough, just wondering what Apple has done in the past. Hoping am or at least early afternoon and not end of day.

    I always do my iPhone as online preorder from apple. My experience is that the delivery time is based on your delivery location. Businesses usually get it before homes, and the delivery person will show at about the same time he/she always arrives in your neighborhood. For me, it's afternoon/evening.

    I'm the same. Ordered two stainless steel sports bands (42mm and 38mm) and a pending transaction on American Express on the 42mm but nothing on the 38mm. Still marked as being processed. Hoping that changes tomorrow!
