Here's a gentle reminder regarding the exciting new Apple Watch pre-order kick-off at the end of this week. We wanted to reiterate the details for pre-ordering and in-store purchases. First, let's share the skinny on Apple's Reserve and Pickup service. Here's a quote with the info,
On top of this, the most expensive version of the watch, the Apple Watch Edition, will only be offered at a select few Apple Stores (the details of which have not been revealed), and in very limited supply.
If you were planning on pre-ordering online, fret not. The Apple Watch online pre-order does not have the same limitations as the Reserve and Pickup service, although there is a possibility that Apple will restrict the Apple Watch online pre-orders to 2 per online customer order. For those who pre-order online, the date and time is 12:01am PTD (which is 2:01am CTD) on Friday morning (Thursday night). The online pre-orders will start shipping out to customers on April 24th.
Retail sales of all versions of the Apple Watch will start on April 24 in the United States, Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan and United Kingdom.
