Apple formally announces Apple Watch Series 7 preorders starting this Friday


Apple today announced Apple Watch Series 7, featuring the largest and most advanced Apple Watch display ever — and a reengineered Always-On Retina display with significantly more screen area and thinner borders — will be available to order beginning Friday, October 8, at 5 a.m. PDT and available in stores starting Friday, October 15.

Given the steadily slipping shipping dates of the iPhone Pro (as of this writing, the iPhone I ordered shows a delivery date of November 4-11), and the fact that Series 7 pre-orders have already been pushed back more than 3 weeks (the announcement was September 14th), if you want a Series 7, I’d get on it as soon as the doors open.

From the footnotes:

Customers can buy Apple Watch (GPS + Cellular) directly from or at an Apple Store and get $100 back when they activate it with T-Mobile/Sprint or Verizon.

Good to know.
