As is the case with almost every new product Apple launches, pre-sales of the Apple Watch have lead to an anticipated sell out. So, unless you got in early last Friday when pre-orders opened, you can expect to wait at least a couple of weeks after April 24 when the Apple Watch officially goes on sale.
According to a report by Slice Intelligence close to a million watches were ordered in the US alone with many people ordering more than one unit and the Apple Watch Sport, the least expensive model, most popular.
Although the 38mm screen models are less expensive than the 42mm units, it’s the larger display that has dominated sales with close to three-quarters opting for the bigger screen.
Slice’s data is based on sales projections using e-receipt data from 9,080 online shoppers who have opted to have their inboxes tracked for receipts.
A quick scan of the Australian Apple Online Store reveals shipping for some units has already slipped back to June 2015.
