Where to buy Apple Watch

Forum
watchOS & Apple Watch Apps

Hi guys,

I am so worried because I can not find the way how to get an Apple Watch. My sister is in the U.S. in California and she is unable to purchase it via their website, because there is july delivery and she is going home 6. june. Can please somebody recommend how to get an Apple Watch 42mm sport ? Many thank you. I am from Slovakia.

The Apple Watch is currently only available online. At some point they will become available in Apple Stores for walk-in purchase, but Apple have yet to give any indication of when this is likely to be. Considering the current shipping times, I sincerely doubt that it’s going to happen before your June deadline.

I don't know because I haven't given serious thought to getting one, but could you either just call and ask what they can do to work with your situation, or have your sister go in and try to place an order for you? If for some reason you can't call yourself, let me know and I'll call and give them the general details of your situation, then post back here to let you know. :)

There were a few higher end boutiques across the world that had them on launch day. The only one in the states appears to be the Maxfield store in west Hollywood, and I don't know if they still have them or would have the one you want. Might be time for some judicious googling and to have your sister make some phone calls if she's in that area. Otherwise online is your best bet. Best of luck, and I hope you can get one. I love mine!

Sorry, but no phone call to Apple is going to result in your sister being able to walk into an Apple Store in the next few weeks and find an Apple Watch sat waiting for her. Well, not unless you have a certain Tim Cook in your family.

Is there a reason why you can't order the watch online? As the above poster said... there's just no way you're going to be able to buy one from an Apple Store direct. <a href=http://www.quora.com/San-Francisco-CA/At-what-stores-in-San-Francisco-c…; From a post regarding brick and mortar locations selling the watch </a>...
"Apple's new Senior Vice President of Retail and Online Stores, Angela Ahrendts, took a new direction with the launch of the Apple Watch. Instead of stocking all 454 brick and mortar Apple Stores with as many Watches as possible, it was decided that the Watch would be offered exclusively through Apple's website. This change is partially due to the fact that there are so many combinations of Apple Watches and Bands, as it would be a mess to stock all of them.

That having been said, the only way to buy an Apple Watch in person right now is to go through a third party. Currently, the Apple Watch is offered at Dover Street Market in Ginza and London, Maxfield in Los Angeles, Colette in Paris or Corner in Berlin."
Your best bet is to either order the watch online or see if your sister can get to L.A.

I wouldn't even call apple to see about buying it. As others have pointed, your best/only option is to order online. The stores have models to try/look at, but not buy directly. Have your sister go thru the apple online store, or if she has an iOS device, she could probably purchase from the apple store app itself.

Yep, the soonest you'd be able to geet it is July, no matter what. That's simply how Apple is doing things with the watch.

It is unable to place an order from my country. And my sister lefts U.S. at 6. june. So I am not possible to get one piece...

The only way I can think of, if you can't order one from Slovakia, is to get a friend in another country to let you send it to them and ship it on or see if your sister can road trip to Los Angeles. Sorry I can't be of more help! I hope you're still able to get one!
