    42mm SS with white sports band in the UK changed to preparing for shipment around 10am UK time. Should hopefully mean I get it for Friday if watches are already in the country.

    Is it possible Apple Care adds time?

    I mean, I didn't order the black one, but I did get AppleCare, and I got my status change on Monday. I think it's more the style/color that's holding it up rather than the AppleCare IMO

    Interesting note I have apple care also and they charged it last week then refunded it. It cost $69. I figure they're gonna take it all at once

    I ordered one sport 42mm with black band and one sport 38mm with white band. Mine changed to preparing for shipment on Monday afternoon and my card was charged and I live in Michigan. Still waiting for shipment and tracking number.

    I think I saw a 38mm go through earlier today but I have yet to see one 42mm SS with black sport band go through.

    What makes you say that?

    As far as we all know, everyone who has orders with the first delivery window (4/24-5/8) could have their watches shipped overnight as long as it goes out by tomorrow afternoon. There is nothing preventing Apple from doing so. Given that the model that seems to be outstanding for most (SS black sport band) is likely one of the most popular, I have to believe Apple would have been smart enough to forecast that too and have enough to deliver at the beginning of the window - otherwise, they would have sold out sooner. I'm as annoyed about the delay in status change as any, but I still think that chances are good we see it by Friday.

    I don't think that tracking trick works for the UK?

    Thanks for commenting.. I really needed that positive messaging! I was close to giving up on my 42 SS Black Sports Band (ordered 4/24-5/8) showing up on Friday.

    I am officially giving up. No charge and no change in status. Guess it will be between now and may 8. I am in NY and ordered black sport. So disappointed.

    UPS My Choice also doesn't work if you have a commercial address. I've been using UPS My Choice for a few months now, but I opted to send my Apple Watch to work to ensure delivery.

    I ordered 42mm SS with blue leather loop band on 4/10 at 12:12 PDT. It shows delivery as 5/13-5/27. No CC charged and no change in status, so far.

    My son ordered a 42mm SS with brown leather loop band and a 38mm sport with blue band on the afternoon of 4/10. They both show June delivery. No changes on the SS watch, but his credit card was charged today for the 38mm sport. 38mm sport seems to be in low demand.

    We're both in Utah.

    Certainly sounds like it. Lots of speculation but don't think anyone's gotten that update yet. Mine's been on prepping to ship since Monday. Patiently (not) waiting for it to change to shipped.

    Well grab the popcorn guys because tomorrow will be the day should something happen. They are leaving this quite late though, especially when the apple adverts tell that the device is released on the 24th!
