Apple Watch Series 7

Anybody ordered one?

I’ve gone for the green aluminium one with green sports band. The checkout process was a pain, though - card verification kept timing out then saying that payment had been rejected. It would then say it was texting me an OTP, which never arrived.

Finally got it ordered after 15 minutes with a claimed delivery date of next Friday, but we’ll see.

I have, can’t wait. ordered the starlight aluminium to go with my deep cherry braided band. Got it for next Friday too.

I haven’t, and I normally wouldn’t be interested although I saw it claims to track swimming distances accurately and if it does, I might be! As nothing else I’ve tried had managed that yet.

Do let me know if you take it swimming outdoors :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:

Delivery pushed back a month and half now

Glad I placed the order on Friday now!

I did. At 1pm. Came up as a week in the order confirmation but since checking it’s now changed

That’s interesting. Hopefully it’s just a bug and not further supply chain shortages as that wouldn’t look good on Apple (although understandable)

My order didn’t get confirmed until around 1:15pm but it’s still showing this Friday for delivery.

Status has changed to “Preparing to ship”.

Oh really, that’s not good.

I also ordered at 1pm Friday, delivery still scheduled for the 15th. Fingers crossed for you.

Ah well, thanks for the heads up.

You can try John Lewis on Fri for a quicker delivery, or keep trying with Apple for store pickup and you might be able to get one sooner.

I didn’t know you can do that - change from post to collection after you’ve ordered.

I don’t think you can - you’d have to cancel the original order if you managed to get one in store. I did that with my current S5.

Yes, you just cancel the outstanding order when you manage to get one sooner.

Well blow me down. That worked. Pick up this Friday. Cancelled the original one. Thanks for your help :slightly_smiling_face:
