Want to get your hands on an Apple Watch today? Apple has opened up an in-store reservations system to make that possible, at least in some countries.
To get a sense of your options, head over to the Apple Store web site, then click the Shop Watch icon at the top of the page.
On the watch page, pick the watch you want, click the Select button. If in-store reservations are an option where you live, you should see something like this (just below the Add AppleCare+ section):
Click the Check reservation availability link and you’ll be on the Reserve and Pick Up page. Fill out the form to select an Apple Store and you’ll find out if that store has stock of your selected model. If so, sign in with your Apple ID and make your reservation. Easy peasy.
