Apple Watch Now Available For Pre-Order

Last updated:

Apple has now opened up pre-orders for the Apple Watch, letting customers purchase their device in advance via the Apple Store website and the Store app for iPhone and iPad. Previously, customers could “favorite” their preferred selection, picking from the three Watch collections and the various bands available for each, but now they can actually order a device, with in-store pickup and home delivery starting April 24.

The Apple Watch is available to try on, but not to take home, at Apple Stores and a few authorized ressellers in launch countries Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany Hong Kong, Japan, the UK and the US.

Prospective buyers can book an appointment to go check out the device in person beginning now, to get a personal guided tour of the Watch from an Apple specialist.

It’s advisable that you book an appointment to go get a first-hand look at the Apple Watch before placing a pre-order, unless you’re dead set on getting one regardless of what it’s like to use one.

Apple is gearing this retail launch towards offering ample time to try out the device, too, given the longer than usual window between pre-orders and availability.
