You won’t be able to buy the actual Apple Watch in your nearby Apple Store location any time in the immediate future.
But you’ll be able to start picking up the Apple Watch bands starting this week.
Apple has recently sent a message to its retail locations informing them that the Apple Watch bands will be available in “limited” quantities. The bands will apparently be intended for customer who want to swap out their pre-bundled band with a new band. Secondary to this, these early band shipments for stores will be available as replacements for worn-out bands from the various store Apple Watch try-on stations.
Finally, the remaining inventory will be sold to customers seeking an additional Apple Watch band. Apple is said to be about to begin advertising the availability of the Sports Band in its retail locations. The stores are also rumored to be receiving Apple Watch stock beginning in June, albeit no definitive timeline has been released on this.
You can’t buy the Apple Watch ya want, but you can at least buy the custom band that’ll adhere it to your wrist…
