Apple Watch models sell out quickly, shipping estimates now 4-6 weeks or later

Apple Watch models sold out very quickly after the device’s launch at 12:01 a.m. Pacific time this morning. Some models were showing shipping estimates of 4-6 weeks almost immediately after the Apple Online Store opened to accept pre-orders. The earliest shipping time available was a two-week estimate — the official April 24 launch date to May 8. As of this writing, only one Watch model in the entire lineup — the 38mm stainless steel Watch with Black Classic Buckle — has that same early shipping estimate. Sport models are now showing June for a shipping estimate, stainless steel models with Sport bands are getting 4-6 week estimates, while some other stainless steel models are showing June or July as an estimated shipping time. All Edition models are showing a June shipping estimate as of this time.

Apple Stores are also currently accepting Apple Watch try-on appointments. As of this writing, there are plenty of available appointments today and this weekend at many stores.
