It's hard for Apple's new releases not to sell out quickly because so many people queue up to buy at the first opportunity. That said, this release is a bit different with different models and bands available. Apple basically had to guess how many of which ones to produce for the rollout. If you selected the same model/configuration Apple anticipated, you'll probably get yours this month. If not, you'll have to wait for the next properly configured batch to ship.

That's true, there are a lot of options.

Not really. I had to wait over an hour until they opened up the " store" for IPhone 6/6+. I tried to order the watch at 3:30am est and delivery was 4-6 weeks for the steel June ??? for the aluminum. The Apple Store near me was not that busy. Was there at 2pm and no lines. I think initial supply is very thin. When I got the IPhone last year that I pre-ordered lines were long outside the store a couple of days later.

Ordered mine at 4:30 AM Eastern time (that is when I workout), and had zero problems or internet issues. Ordered the steel with a delivery in mid May.

I came 23 minutes late to the party and couldn't get an early delivery date for my first choice SS with modern pink buckle. However I was able to get a 24/4-8/5 delivery date for the silver sports watch with white band 23 minutes after pre-orders went live.
