I'm not suggesting anybody penalize the "decisive". Quite the contrary. When the pre-orders start it's everyone for themselves.But this is a watch. It's personal. It needs to be fit to the wearer. It's not a one-size-fit all iPhone or iPad. It's an expensive purchase for many, and very expensive for others. Pictures and stats aren't enough for something you wear.Who would it have penalized to offer the watches in the store a week before anybody could have ordered them? If...
No. People have been reporting different delays on different models.They really should have previewed "Apple's most personal product yet" in stores a week before pre-orders went live.Judging by these delays, I'm more inclined to believe that Apple has chosen a more build to order model, than massive sales. No doubt the preorders are going to be massive, but I think the inventory is minimal, and they will be assembling to meet demand. Think of it as the actual launch day is...
I hope you're right.Again it's not the online pre-order process that bothers me, that's no different than it's ever been, in fact it may be running smoother than most.But still, considering this is Apple's most personal product ever, and I've never met anybody who didn't try on a watch before they bought it, you'd think giving the eager public a chance to try the watch on and know which one they wanted before they throw everyone into a lottery skewed to the dedicated...
I'm not complaining about the pre-orders themselves. This is all business as usual. Nothing you can do about supply and demand on launch day.What I'm upset about is the people who said Apple should have offered a week of previews/fittings, by appointment before the pre-order day. By doing it this week, customers who needed to see it in person to chose were shut out on day one. For a product that's meant to be worn, this is ridiculous.Instead you have people ordering...
That seems reasonable that Apple is being conservative about how quickly they can produce new models. However, with all the people here saying they ordered two and will cancel one after they see them in the stores, I would expect a sudden surpluss available in about a week.
Wow I'm surprised they switched the bands, everything I've read prior to this suggested that you would not be able to switch bands. Was this the Edition? Did you get a good look at the watch itself? Any diagnostic ports?
No. To the contrary.But this is a mess. I was optimistic and supportive of Apples plan thinking they really had this worked out, but they didn't. I feel like an idiot now suggesting to people that Apple would not have offered online ordering and previews on the same day knowing that this is a device many customers need to see first, so there would be adequate time to pre-order witin at least the first several days.Nope. So to all of those who suggested Apple should have...
It's always been at the end of the stainless steel models, right next to the silver steel link model, it just looks nothing like this in the pictures. For my money it looks way too glossy, like it's been spray painted or something. But the pictures of these watches have been painfully inconsistent. Really looking forward to seeing them in person finally.
I do like that combo. I wonder if the black link bracelet can be purchased separately? The picture AI just posted of the all black watch just doesn't work for me. But to each his own.
