First Apple Watch Preorders in Canada Shipping as UPS Tracking Sent Out

Better check your email because the first Apple Watch preorders in Canada have shipped via UPS. Apple has notified some of its first customers, such as iPhoneinCanada reader @ClaudeYJL (Surrey, BC) who received his UPS tracking number for his 42mm Sport model:

Apple watch shipped canada ups

Shipping is via UPS Express Saver, which has guaranteed next-day service by noon to “most metropolitan areas.”

Apple watch canada shipping

If your delivery dates are showing 24/4 – 8/5, we can probably go by Apple’s iPhone 6 launch and conclude those in Zone 1 areas of Canada will likely receive their Apple Watch on Friday, April 24, if history repeats itself.

For those in Zone 2, this page on Apple’s website (active but unlisted?) seems to indicate your “Delivers 24/4 – 28/4” quote could come later.

Earlier this evening Apple emailed customers to emphasize their preorder delivery windows and to note “we’re working on your order” to reassure customers their watches will arrive shortly, with some sooner than expected.

You can also login to your My Support Profile to see if your Apple Watch is listed under My Products, a sign it could be coming soon (or in progress) if it’s there.

Has your Apple Watch preorder shipped yet? When did you order and what model?

    k I’m sorry I don’t know what I just said, that was pure excitement talking

    Also I’m in Richmond BC so close to Vancouver, they’re prob doing the metro areas first as confirmed in your post

  • Mr. Speedy

    Confirmed shipment of two Appke Watch, 42mm SS with Milanese loop and 38mm Sport with white sport band, for Terrebonne, Qc, a suburb of Montreal. I will also receive my extra charging cables today the 23rd.

  • kabsalsa

    I ordered two 38 mm white (ss and sport) as I couldn’t decide. The sport I ordered 3:02 am and the stainless at 5:30 am. Both have shipped.

  • Guest

    Mine’s coming tomorrow! Can’t wait!

  • wuju

    Ordered at 3:02am on launch date – 42mm stainless steel with classic leather strap. Newmarket, Ontario.

    Status Shipped on April 22, so very excited.

  • CoachK

    Ordered at 3:02am on April 10th. 42mm Space Grey sport shipped to Sudbury. Can’t wait…

  • Gord

    Seeing this I’m not too happy. I ordered a stainless with a black plastic strap at 3:02 am and nothing has changed. I’m in Ottawa and I’m seeing people who bought at 5 am and they’re getting their shipping notice. I registered for a Saturday am watch session at the Apple Store. I may have to cancel the class. And I might just cancel my order unless things change. I expect better from Apple considering my spend rate with them.

  • CapitainHarlock

    I ordored at 3:07 on april 10th. 1X 42mm space grey sport & 1X pink sport. “Processing Items Available to ship: 4-6 weeks Delivers: 15 May – 28 May by Expédition standard”. Im disappointed 🙁

  • Kirk

    Got my confirmation email for SS with black sport band at 3:02am. I am completely disappointed. Clearly they seem to have low stock for this particular combination. Unless some magical pixie dust changes my status at some point today to shipping I seriously doubt I’ll see it tomorrow. Who knows.. Still processing.. Has anyone’s stainless steel with black sports band even shipped? From Toronto. Man this sucks. 🙁

  • FerrariF1

    would you like to sell it?

  • Present forever

    My order shipped from Burlington, ON
    42 stainless with black classic buckle
    I wish if My home were in Burlington now 🙂

  • Spiridus

    Received my shipping notification at 5:00am EST to Ontario to be delivered April 24th. My order time stamp was 3:02 EST for 42mm Space Grey Sport. Funny though, the extra cable I ordered is out for delivery this morning.

  • Rox

    yup, 42mm Sport Space gray on it’s way for tomorrow (Granby, Quebec). Got email and text messages. Ordered at 3:02am. I should get the extra charger today.

  • Appletroll

    ordered on April 15,yes 5 days after Apple Store opened,but getting my watch tomorrow.

  • Bailey

    Hey Ferrari, I have that exact watch coming tomorrow, but I changed my mind and I want the Sport model instead. I am willing to sell it to you if you want. Please email me if you’re still interested. dj_dmc@hotmail.com

  • will

    42mm SG sport for delivery to Toronto…ordered 3:02am. Still processing. 🙁

  • Anz13

    Ordered at 3:02 and got my shipping notification this morning to arrive tomorrow in Laval!

  • Geoffrey Spencer

    Ordered at 3 AM on the dot and still in the processing stage. 42mm Apple Watch Stainless Steel SG with stainless steel SG strap. 🙁

  • Duff

    its amazing how only a couple minutes makes all the difference on your delivery date. i ordered at 12:05am and got a 24/4-8/5, but no preparing for shipment yet and got a email from apple last night to emphasize i would receive it by the 8th of May. Im just gonna assume I’m not getting it till then, and i will still be getting mine before my friends and family which have June for there delivery dates.

  • Salinger

    From reading some of the various forums, that model seems to be the one with the least movement on shipping of all of them. Good luck, hope it goes soon!

  • Guest

    My order says it’s currently in Burlington which is like a 30 minute drive away. I wish they gave us the option to pick it up ourselves.

  • OliChabot

    Altough I had the shipping notice (ordered Friday @3h45 AM), I know how you feel. If I was in your position, I would feel pretty upset about having woke up in the middle of the night to order this product and get bypass by others.

  • hub2

    Love that you used the bad map Apple used at the time, which included inaccurate city locations like Toronto and Ottawa 🙂

  • Spiridus

    At around 9:45 am EST, my extra charging cable was delivered.

  • ericzchu

    I chose standard free shipping option when I ordered the Stainless Steel watch with white band. Got the shipping email this morning from Apple and it says that the delivery date will be April 27th. The UPS tracking number shows that the watch is shipped by UPS Express Saver. Anyone else have the delivery date for April 27th? I’m in Calgary BTW.

  • wuju

    Are all shipping through UPS? Wondering if Apple uses other shipper like FedEx, etc.

  • faythebest

    Did you get the email from Apple last night saying that they are working on your order? I think we are not going to get our 42mm SS BSB tomorrow. It would probably be next week. By the way where do you live in Toronto? I am in East York.

  • Kirk

    I didn’t get that email. Which is more of a slap in the face. I’m so mad with this whole process

  • faythebest

    Same here! Not even excited to get my watch anymore! Biggest failure from Apple! They can’t even produce enough Black sport bands. That’s what the issue is I think!

  • Nilay

    Ditto….

  • moose24ca

    I ordered same model as you guys at 3:03am, and I did get the email last night. My status is still “processing”, but my extra cable has shipped! I’m in the Toronto area.

  • faythebest

    I hope some magic happens tonight for Toronto people! Fingers crossed

  • moose24ca

    I find it amazing how upset everyone gets. We’re all excited enough to get up (or stay up) for a 3am EDT pre-order time, but when we don’t have a shipping notice 24 hours out, we lose our minds. “Apple is the worst”, “I’m cancelling”, etc. Calm down. You might still get it tomorrow. Or you might get it next week. How do we go from excited to furious so fast?

    I ordered 42mm Stainless with Black Sport Band just after 3am. I’m still “processing”, but I’m keeping it together…haha.

  • GC

    +1 🙂

  • winner winner chicken dinner!

  • Haven’t seen anything via FedEx yet, looks like it’s all UPS so far.

  • Gord

    Same here. I’m in Ottawa. Just got off chat with Apple. Not a good experience. Apple chat person told me the orders were being filled on a first come first served basis. Which is not the case. I have a time stamped email showing 3:03. I ponted that out. Then the rep typed – that I’m lucky her shipping date is in June and used the term you are “fashion forward”. This is reflecting poorly on Apple. If i don’t see this Monday I’m cancelling.

  • El Cockblock

    Because people are idiots and expect everything to be hand-fed and silver-platter delivered to them.

    I call this the “DB” generation. As in douchebags.

  • El Cockblock

    No, they don’t. What difference would it make?

  • George Nico

    When you’re paying this much money for something, It better damn well be hand-fed and on a silver platter for me.

  • Bob Langevin

    Ordered at 12:10 am. 42mm sport, blue band. Shipped on 22nd, delivery on the 24th

  • Kam

    Gary, I’m trying to find out if stores might have brands in stock tomorrow. Have you heard of anything, im getting conflicting answers for the stores.

  • wuju

    just wondering if the speed of delivery is any different.

  • UPS is Apple’s Only Shipper in Canada, in the United States they use both

  • Mine has shipped; but tracking number is not yet active

  • Nafizur

    Just got a email with shipping notification. It says i’ll receive it on the 27th 🙁

  • Shawn99

    Edmonton 42mm sport black space grey. Originally it showed to ship May 19th but I got a shipped email for it to show up April 27th baby!

  • Kirk

    You and me both, but at this point I don’t even care about tomorrow I just want to know WHEN. Booked the day off work too… What a waste (all my fault I know)

  • Rick

    My 42mm stainless with milanese band is due to arrive before noon tomorrow!

  • Bjay O

    Ordered at 3:20am on April 20th 42mm Watch with Milanese, delivering on Monday 27th

  • Oliver

  • Sean Matthew

    Ok one is the sports blue the other is the green anywonw has any idea why there is a 1 pound difference i know the diff colors weight different but not one pound more but if they did a mistake and shipped 2 i ll be happy to keep both

  • I’m downtown too in Mtl… and still destination scan in Lachine… 6:27am

  • wuju

    Mine says On Vehicle for Delivery”. I’m in Newmarket, a town north of Toronto bit. So expecting delivery around 3-5 this afternoon. Could be later to 6 or 7 🙁

  • My Apple Watch is out for delivery (Sidney, BC).

    Sent from my iPhone while sitting by the door like a dog waiting for its UPS master to come home

  • Let us know what’s inside with that extra pound!

  • HOW IS IT?!

  • Sean Matthew

    To take an appointment with a genius in apple canada for the i watch they have an applepay section does it means what i think it means

  • Sean Matthew

    Alright btw if you check on apple canada to get help with a genius on the watch in the category of proplems they added apple pay in it hope it s for real this time

  • Oliver

    Let me know when yours updates! Mine is still in transit…

  • Yes me too 🙁 So close and still far LOL
    I have the feeling we will be in the Afternoon batch… in the truck by 1:30/2 and delivery before 5

  • Just got it 🙂 YEAH

  • Oliver

    Awesome… still waiting here.

  • Rob433

    What happens if no one is home to receive delivery. Do they keep coming back? Local Apple Store? Mail office? Or ups?

  • They will leave a slip and try a second attempt the next business day. You can call UPS if you missed your delivery and ask it be redirected to a UPS store for pick up the next time.

  • Ryan Peterson

    Anyone in Edmonton get their delivery yet? Mine still says ‘Arrival Scan’ @ 3:29am…

  • matt

    Anyone else in Vancouver with “a day delay” on their ups tracking? Do they deliver Saturdays? What is this nonsense?

  • Present forever

    :))))
    Well
    Im laying on the ground like dead with my tongue out like children sock
    Waiting for my next apple product to give me
    a reson for this life 🙂

  • Nate

    Just received my Apple Watch at 12pm today. Very happy with it so far.

  • Present forever

    Got it!!!
    Oh yeah 🙂

  • Nate

    SS with Classic Leather buckle!

  • Jiffy Minor

    yes, very dissapointed. called Apple and UPS and apparently Apple messed up the label info so they couldnt process it. my watches are stuck in Toronto and I am in Vancouver. UPS tracking info says “sender tendered the shipment info to UPS after the latest pickup time”.

  • Josh

    Shot in the dark here, anyone in Calgary want to get rid of a 42mm space grey sport?

  • Sean Matthew

    Only one eatch per box huge box

  • Sean Matthew

    Huge box one foot long and heavy

  • Sean Matthew

    Yeah

  • wuju

    Still waiting for mine. 6:20pm EST and end of day for UPS delivery is like 7pm.

    🙁

  • Ryan Peterson

    Did you get it?

  • matt

    Mine just updated to in transit for Monday….I’m beyond pissed off right now

  • Still waiting…

  • wuju

    Gone mine finally 🙂

  • Oliver

    Me too!

  • Yeah

  • kabsalsa

    Got mine…ss white sports band. I struggled whether it was worth the extra price but now I know it definitely is. Beautiful looking! Got to figure out the set up now

  • wuju

    anyone figured out how to see incoming messages on the Apple Watch without going into the message app? Can’t seem to able to set it up so messages comes in like a notification alert….

  • Arrived!

  • wuju

    Basically, I don’t get that message notification on my apple watch when I get a new message on the iPhone like the Apple Message video… 🙁

  • Kirk

    Credit was charged just now. Ain’t that a shocker lol.

  • Kirk

    Credit was charged just now. Ain’t that a shocker lol. There’s actual movement :O

  • faythebest

    Wow are you serious?? Congrats. I am going to check mine too!

  • Kirk

    Good luck! I’ll tell you if I see anything else

  • faythebest

    Thanks, same here!

  • faythebest

    Oh yeah got charged too! Let’s hope to see status changes in few minutes! Will let you know!

  • duff

    Finally my credit card has been charged and Preparing For Shipment. 42mm SS with Black Sport Band. ????…. That’s my excited face.

  • faythebest

    Finally, preparing for shipment!!!

  • Yeah!

  • Kirk

    Yeah mine too. God damnit! Lol.

  • Gord

    My config exactly. Ordered at 12:03 and I’m still in purgatory. I noticed that not many SS BSB were shipped yesterday via a number of tracking sites. What time did you order?

  • Kirk

    Just got an email saying my item has shipped. Complete with tracking number and everything. Hopefully they are over shooting the delivery date. Says Wednesday but I kinda don’t believe that. We will see. UPS will have the final decision on the tracking number.

  • faythebest

    Just received the email as well and same delivery date. But that’s Apple estimates, we will get the accurate date once UPS picks up the parcel. We can probably get it on Monday! Finally going to relax after this great news, lol!

  • Kirk

    You and me both! Yeah once it posts on UPS site the actual date should show. Fingers crossed!

  • Kirk

    Hope there’s been movement for you. My watch was processed and I now have the tracking number! Also in Toronto area!

  • moose24ca

    Yep! Me too. I just got my shipment notification this morning. Looks like I’ll be getting mine on Monday. I’m okay with that. Although, I did receive my extra charging cable yesterday. That’s a little backwards.

  • Kirk

    Does yours show a shipping date from apple as Wednesday? Or does it actually say Monday? Just curious. I think they are over promising. Which is fine ether way. I could wait. Just curious.

  • Duff

    I ordered around 12:05am, confirmation email was at 12:08am. Mine has shipped as of this morning and expected delivery is April 30th.

  • Gord

    My Credit hasn’t been charged but I just received my shipping notice! Content with that. Delivery is April 29, Wednesday.

  • moose24ca

    It’s showing as shipped today, April 25th. There isn’t any tracking info available from UPS yet, but I’m assuming Monday delivery. When my cable was shipped on Thursday, it delivered next day. I’m pretty sure our watches are at the UPS depot in Concord.

  • Kirk

    Oh sorry mine shows shipped today was well. Apple’s website is saying delivery by Wednesday. But yes you are right. Apple products always come from concord.

  • Buddy of mine had his 42mm White Sport model ship today–and he preordered the day after on April 11. His given delivery date was June!

    So have hope people, watches are shipping sooner than expected.

  • Andre

    My 42mm SS/Black band status has just changed to “Preparing for Shipment”. Con firmation email was at 3.08am and delivery was scheduled for 14th-28 May. No cc charge yet.

  • Canadan

    42mm white sport ordered April 13, shipped today

  • Kirk

    Finally! The watch is in my possession! 😀 Did you get yours today?

  • Nice! How do you like it so far? Share some pics 🙂

  • Kirk

    Finally! The watch is in my possession! 😀 Did you get yours today?

  • faythebest

    haha I was just going to ask you the same thing. Yes just got it, it was worth the wait!!! Let’s explore it now! Enjoy

  • Kirk

    Finishing up at work! I will when j get home! The box is crisp lol

  • Kirk

    Got mine today! 42 SS Sports Band!

  • faythebest

    Yes finally!!! The UPS guy came around 3pm and I jumped right away to open the door, haha! This thing is amazing, it was worth the wait! Enjoy

  • Kirk

    Same to you! Yes you are right! It’s so slick! Glad I went with steel. Can’t wait to see third party bands roll out!

  • moose24ca

    Yep! Mine delivered at about 9:30am Wednesday. Sweet!!
