Apple shares Apple Watch pre-order timing; when can you reserve yours?
In just one more week, the Apple Watch hits retail. It won’t be available for outright sale straight away, but on April 10 the smartwatch comes to Apple’s stores, where you’ll be able to interact with the wearable yourself for the very first time. You’ll have to wait until April 24 to take an Apple Watch home with you, but pre-orders will start on April 10, giving you a two-week head start on securing your own. And considering how desirable surveys have suggested consumers find the smartwatch, and just how high initial sales could be, it might be a very smart idea to make sure you stake your claim early. Today Apple shares some important details concerning just when you’ll be able to get a pre-order in its system.
Apple is getting Apple Watch pre-orders started as soon as possible, and once April 10 rolls around, you can submit yours starting just after midnight, Pacific. That spells 3am for you East-Coasters out there. So if you want to be among the first to get your order in, plan on either staying up late or getting a stupid-early start to the day.
Of course, there’s a lot to be said for waiting to pre-order the smartwatch until after going to see it in person, but we know that quite a number of you are all ready to jump on this opportunity the second it becomes available, having already heard so much about what to expect.
So, who’s going to be camping-out at their keyboard next Friday morning?
