It seems the Apple Watch launch day has been scrubbed. Apparently they were worried that people would see "launch day" and line up outside the stores and there would be no stock for them.

I'm sorry I don't actually have one to try.  The thing that surprised me about the Dell 5K inclusion is that Apple says it's supported on the Mac Pro *and* the Retina iMac (but no other Macs).
