Some Apple Watch Band Pre-Orders Start Shipping in Canada


Pre-ordered extra Apple Watch bands made on April 10 have started to ship in Canada, including the Milanese Loop band, like the one below shared by our Apple Watch tutorial expert Kris Meador:

Milanese loop band shipping

Right now, the 42mm Milanese Loop is ‘available to ship’ in June, while the 38mm is available to ship in May.

Sport bands in both sizes are listed as ‘available to ship’ in 2-4 weeks, which is the same for the Classic Buckle (which we are not a fan of) and Leather Loop (which feels very nice).

The Modern Buckle says “currently unavailable” and the Link Bracelet in 38mm is listed as 2-4 weeks, while the 42mm says it will ship in May.

While this may be good news for those with Apple Watches already, many are still waiting for their April 10 preorders to ship. Has your Apple Watch band preorder shipped yet?

    Still have to wait 2-3 weeks for my sport band to be shipped 🙁
    It seems that patience is an essential trait to qualify

    I received mine April 24 before noon ????, though when I ordered April 17 it was marked as June availability! I ordered the 38 mm Apple Watch Sport with white band.

    Still waiting for my extra sport band to ship along with my 42mm Space Black w/Black S/S Link Bracelet. This wait is excruciating! Albeit not quite as bad as waiting for my Mac Pro for 2 1/2 months last year 🙂

    I ordered my 38mm watch sport on April 15th, and it came via ups on May 6th. It arrived earlier than expected 🙂
