So Jack, what's your order status? Has it been updated to "Preparing For Dispatch" yet?

Mine's not

Nope, not yet, still 24th to the 8th. I might be going away on the 24th so half hope it gets pushed out a bit.

When someone gets one could they do a HONEST review on it please

Not the usual 'oh it's the best thing since.......' , just a quick truthful write up
My daughter is now asking for one for her birthday , the rest of her cloud must be banging on about them

Being one of the greatest the purveyors of conspicuous consumption, Apple gave Beyoncé hers already, gold too, how inspiring.

Oh please if you want to berate a company for outrageous sponsorship take a look at Samsung.



Giving a fashion icon - like it or not - a Watch is fairly standard stuff.

It's a Watch, a watch has been a fashion item since before the victorians, why do you think Apple employed fashion experts? Do you think it was so they'd get a selfie? Your earlier posts shows what a watch without an eye for fashion looks like, bloody awful.

I'm still not confident, but it was 8:02 when I'd finished my order so chances are high.

I think you'll find the victorians used them for telling the time

Had a play with some of these the other day in the Apple store.

Some nice touches - the strap/band change is super easy as is the adjustment on the metal bracelets. They are a very simple and elegant design, although on the steel bracelet quite dated in a 1970's digital watch kind of way.

Have to say though, overall Mrs DD and I were not that impressed, certainly not enought to burn a few hundered £££ on them, and I do wonder if the novelty value would wear off quite quickly.

If apple produce one with a sim and therefore doesn't need to be tethered to an Iphone, then i'm in 100%. Until then we're going to pass.

I think full autonomy will be a good while yet, but you never know.

Made an epic fail, kept thinking the pre-order started on the Saturday, realised about 1pm on the Friday. By then it already said June...

Decided to go do a try-on to ensure the 42mm was the right move for my puny wrist, so only actually ordered around this time last Thurs, still said June. The guy in the store seemed to think dates were unlikely to slip after placing the order and may come forward but I won't hold my breath. At least I can cancel if the first receivers report horrendous problems that can't be fixed with a software update.

I've already been offered outrageous money for my Sport version, enough for the Black Stainless model, if I want to wait, I can't imagine how much people would be prepared to pay for Gold.
