    Interesting! Mine was saying the same as yours (27 May - 10 June), but now it's blown out to 29 May - 12 June. It must be the black sports band!😀

    Ordered a black 42mm Sports watch and black band - 5 to 7 weeks....
    Couldn't justify the cost for a stainless steel version - especially on a V1 product.

    I pre-ordered the 38mm sports with blue band which arrived on launch day. I then ordered the black sports band on 3 May and it was delivered on 12 May, so if you want your watch quickly and don't mind waiting a bit for the black band, this might be the way to go.

    Mine says "Available to ship: 4-6 weeks. Delivers: 27/05/2015 - 10/06/2015 by Standard Shipping".

    Starting to lose faith in Apple's arithmetic.

    There's not much to say. the watch works, a minor bug with iMessages not going through via iPhone but the latest OS update for the watch may have fixed it. There was an update overnight. I'm waiting for my 3rd party band and adaptor to arrive. Can't wait for latest versions of the watch to come.

    Loving it!



    Sorry for the hairy arm lol

    It's awesomely made and brilliantly easy to adjust the size and very comfortable. Def not worth the pricetag though!

    I bought the link bracelet.

    What do I think about it? It's a nice bracelet, there are things I like and don't like about it.

    Likes
    - The bracelet is very easy to adjust (but realistically you should not need to adjust the links very often).
    - You can tell that the bracelet is well designed

    Dislikes
    - The bracelet does not allow you to make micro adjustments. My ideal size is between link sizes (i.e. on one setting it is a bit too tight and on another setting it's a bit too loose). If the Apple Watch is too loose, I find that the heart rate and activity monitoring is a bit off (and on occasion my Apple Watch locks itself as it has lost connection with my writs). On my old watch, the link bracelet allowed micro adjustments via the clasp (so you could make half link adjustments).
    - The butterfly clasp employed can be a bit fiddly. I would have preferred a more traditional clasp
    - The bracelet maintains it's loop when off the wrist. I prefer a link bracelet which collapses onto itself so your watch can lie flat when off the wrist.

    So overall the link bracelet is nice and the best band Apple sells (IMHO), but it could have been better.

    Thanks for that Changa. I think I will buy it because I really do like link bracelets. My fear was exactly what you said about the fit and how it could be loose or too tight due to my wrist size but we will see what happens

    I got the Click. Because the campaign was so successful, I got 3 adaptors for the price of 1, and 2 free bands - a silver metal one and a black leather one. Great! ETA is June.

    Apple Store Chadstone has sports bands (I didn't see any black) in store for sale and Milanese loop bands out the back for sale but not yet on display.
