It came, it saw, it conquered! Well not exactly, but Apple Watch is already sold out, just a few hours into the launch. This of course does not mean you can’t order the watch, it just means that you would have to really wait it out now to get your hands on one of the most sought-after gadgets of 2015. Head over the jump for further details on this matter.
It’s no surprise that the watch has been sold out in the short hours, given Apple’s statement that the watch will be available in limited stock on launch day, coupled with the massive interest it has garnered across the globe. So what does this mean for those who have yet to place their orders? Simply put, you can say goodbye to expecting a delivery date of 24th April for your watch, and instead could be looking at shipping times of somewhere in May to June to even August, depending on the model you want to buy and the region you are buying it from.
If you head over to the Apple Watch pre-orders page, you would see that there is just no Apple Watch model that the company will be shipping out before at least 4 to 6 weeks after you place your order, while most of the models can be expected to be delivered to customers in June. All Apple Watch Sport models have been given the June treatment, while most of the Apple Watch (steel version) models, baring the ones with the Link Bracelet and Milanese Loop which will also ship in June, will be delivered in 4 to 6 weeks’ time.
Meanwhile all gold plated Apple Watch Edition models will now be shipped in August at the earliest.
So did you pre-order the Apple Watch? If you did, which model and what shipping time did you get? Given the whole cost v.s. practicality issue, there are quite a few fans who believe in just testing the waters first with the Apple Watch Sport, and I personally happen to be one of those.
