    Has anyone had any movement on the  Watch, Stainless Steel with Link Bracelet? The wait is killing me!!!!

    I ordered 4 minutes after it went live, the 42mm, SS w/Link Bracelet, through the web. My card has not been charged and my delivery window says May 13th - May 27th. I ordered the sport with white sports band for my mom and of course that one came on the 24th which is making my wait only worse.

    I actually work as a technician in my local store and you'd think I'd know the logic of the shipping but nope, just as clueless here. LOL

    Absolutely none here. Ordered at 3:01am eastern. Still processing. No charge. No progress. Nada. Very frustrating.

    Yea, it looks like we picked the band that takes the most work to produce. Here's a link for Cult of Mac that talks about Apple's patent on the bands and the amount of work that needs to go into each band.

    Patents for magical Apple Watch bands just in time

    Here's a spreadsheet that lists all the shipping movement on the different models which explains that ALL of us that ordered the link bracelet will be waiting for awhile.

    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...tmlview?pli=1#

    If you scroll down to where those that ordered the link bracelet, you'll that May 13th - May 27th is the norm.

    I know this doesn't make it go faster but it does give us a better understanding at least.

    I don't think ANYONE has had movement on either of the link bracelet colors. I've just sort of resigned myself to getting it in the delivery window I was sent, May 13 - 27. Of course, I'm hoping that it's earlier or at least on the 13th. It makes it worse since I actually work as a technician in the retail store and I'm supposed to know everything about it lol. I borrowed my mom's for a day so I could get comfortable with using it which helped but it makes me want it even more.

    I'm trying to be patient but if it makes you feel any better, everyone of my co-workers is chomping at the bit waiting for their watches too. A few of them have gotten them but not many.

    My 42mm SS w/link bracelet was ordered at 00:07 AM on April 10th, at the same time my spouse's 42mm SS w/Black Sport Band. Both received a delivery range of May 13-27, but my spouse's watch is being delivered today. So, the link bracelet is clearly the hold up.

    I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a next week delivery, but no real expectation at this point. It's still in Processing mode.

    One person on Macrumours has received notification that his link band only (no watch) has shipped. He is in Germany.

    Thanks for responding. That's at least slightly encouraging but I'm pretty sure that we'll receiver ours in the window that Apple stated. For me, it's May 13-27 but I'm looking forward to hearing when others receive theirs as a sign they are on their way.

    I love that we are all like little kids waiting for christmas to unwrap the gifts!

    While I realize that we will most likely be getting them in our windows that were promised, I HOPE that someone gets theirs early even if it's not me

    Nothin here

    If it comes in it's delivery window (13-27), that will be one week from today which means we will see credit card charges either over the weekend or Monday.

    Of course, I'm hoping it's earlier but at least the front part of the window is only a week away now. Lord help us all if it's the back part of our delivery window LOL.

    Lord help us if they miss the window entirely. If so- I'm changing my order. That's my limit. I'm pretty sure we'll get them on...May 26 or 27, because I will be on vacation out of state. So that's the most logical time to ship.

    So, Apple has just notified you that your Black Stainless Steel Watch with Black Link Bracelet will be shipped within 2-3 weeks? That's awesome! First I've heard anything about any link bracelet watches!

    Yea, that doesn't really help to know that a spare band (link bracelet) has been charged to your card but those with the link bracelet as part of their watch are still waiting for news of movement.

    On a positive note, congrats though LOL

    While I'm happy to hear some individual link bracelets are starting to move, which is encouraging since production is clearly ramping up, I want to hear of some movement on actual SS Watch/link bracelet combos.

    It's cool watching my spouse play with his, but a bit painful too. I'm ready for my closeup with the watch!

    Yesterday I told you guys my about the email I received 5-7-15 at 10:07am EST. it was regarding my Apple Watch, Black Face with Black SS link bracelet. Unfortunately, my card was not charged last night and my order status has remained the same. However, I do look at the email as a good thing because my original ship date was for June I'm still not going to be touching it this weekend. I tried to post snips of my order and confirm email but the site won't let me. Below is the email I received yesterday, confirm and status

    I hope this makes people feel better, I don't, with the exception of having received the email at all.

    Seems odd to me that people are reporting that their separate link bracelets are shipping/being delivered now (can't post links yet, but see the Band Order updates thread in this same forum) and yet no one is reporting that for people who ordered link bracelet watches are reporting shipment yet.

    Right? Kind of starting to frusturate me. If I don't see movement on my watch by next week..... I'm gonna...... still wait some more.

    Yup. So the lesson here, I suppose, is just relax. Agitation in this case achieves nothing but higher blood pressure.
