We’ve hand-picked some of the models that we believe will be popular and have embedded them below. They offer a good look at what these watches will look like on a wrist and may help you make your final decision. All images from Instagram are showing Apple Watch in 42mm, as far as we know.

What Apple Watch model are you pre-ordering tonight?


  • Nilay

    Wow the Apple Watch – Space Black Link Bracelet looks stunning….

  • Yes, it’s very lust-worthy. Only $1389 CAD…for $170 more, you can get the new 12-inch Retina MacBook. Food for thought!

  • CanucksGoals

    But but but you can’t carry the MacBook on your hand. 😛
    $1389?! This is just too expensive for anyone with common sense to buy.

  • You make a good point. Space Black link bracelet it is tonight!!

  • techGuy4Life

    Apple Watch 42mm Stainless Steel with Black Sports Band!

  • Eric

    I can’t decide between the 38 and 42.. I’m a skinnier guy (135 pounds and 5’10) and I want the 42… but what if its too big .. but what if the 38 is too small 🙁

  • Tough call. Worst case scenario you could return it. Order both?!

  • I’m pre-ordering the white sport Aluminum and white sport Steel. Can’t decide!

  • Jonathan

    Maximum 1 per client

  • Ron Miller

    42mm w/Milanese loop, and probably the blue sport band to go with it for working out.

    Gary, do you think the Space Black is a bit too dark? Seems like the case based on the picture above. What’s your opinion?

    less than an hour to go!!

  • duff

    yup only 1 per pre-order. so you could always try logging into another apple id but has to be a different credit card apparently.
