    How soon after your order changes to "preparing to ship" are the UPS labels showing up in the system? My order moved to "preparing to ship" around 10:30AM today, but I'm not finding anything in the UPS system. I'm thinking its too soon for me to see anything yet.

    I've tried this every which way possible, but no luck. Maybe UPS isn't delivering for me?
    I had a lot of trouble so I would assume it's not you. It's just some mysterious piece missing. If you're in the first wave I bet you have it Friday.

    I find it incredibly strange that SG orders are all sort of lagging behind. Weird.

    My order changed to "preparing" on Monday. I wasn't able to get the UPS thing to work until today. Not sure whether there is a time delay or not. It appears everything is going Next Day Air so we should see official shipping notifications go out tomorrow afternoon. The way we are doing it on the UPS website is somewhat "cheating".

    Weird thing to suggest, but maybe it's confirmation bias? To my it seems that SS Black Sport 42s are delayed, but I think that's primarily because I ordered that one and it hasn't been switched.

    I'm in the same boat with the SS black sports band. Ordered at 3:07 on 4/10 and my order is still "processing". Hoping for things to move very fast tomorrow so I can receive it Friday, but, I'm losing hope the closer it gets. I'll be a little miffed if some orders that came in much later (with June dates) are shipped and received before some of the early SS orders.

    I have a hard time believing the band type/color would hold up the shipping... Especially the sports band as this is essentially the entry level and most basic band.

    I ordered the stainless steel Apple Watch with link bracelet right when the store opened. I got my confirmation email at 3:01 am EDT and the shipping date was May 13-27.

    Apple charged my card about 20 minutes ago. ������

    Now to just have Apple take my money for my stainless steel space black link!��

    Nothing else has changed - the order is still listed as processing and the shipping date is still May 13-27, but I at least have hope!

    Good luck fellow mid-Mayers!

    Should we be trying the ups thing on PC or have you guys done it through mobile? I really have tried the copy and past and everything and it just won't show up. I have to be getting it Friday I was literally probably the first pre order lol. Plus I've been on preparing to ship for a couple days. I just am worried as I have it to ship to my parents house and I need to track it in order to sign for it.

    I ordered the 42 Sport with white band at 3:06. My card was charged last night, but my delivery shows June. I called Apple support to ask why my card was charged if my ship date was June. I was told the charge was just a "placeholder " it shows as pending with the site saying it would not affect my balance. So I guess it means I won't be getting it till June. I am in NJ.

    That sounds like a BS answer. No way they would put a placeholder on your card that far in advance. I bet you will be getting a shipping notice soon.

    An Apple rep told me the same thing but another apple rep told me that if you got charged, it's shipping soon. I'm inclined to believe that if you are charged, it's coming soon.

    They are saying anything to get us off the phone at this point. They can't answer our questions- they don't know and don't want to over promise.

    I agree, I understand the whole 4/24 - 5/8 thing but people that ordered way afterwards getting shipped now doesn't seem fair to all that place the order within minutes...
