Just like many of you, our team members stayed up late to order their own Apple Watch. The demand for these smartwatches seem to be very high though (or the supply is very low). The cheapest Apple Watch models have already been backordered. You are going to have to wait till May to get your hands on one. I managed to order my Apple Watch almost the same minute the store came back online. But Apple won’t be shipping it till May:
The more you wait, the tougher it will get for you to get an Apple Watch in the next month or so. Can’t wait that long to get an Apple Watch? As Aleator777 has shown, you can build your own “Apple Watch” using a Teensy 3.1, a 1.8″ TFT LCD, a 800 mAh battery, and a few other things. It won’t be as smart as the real Apple Watch though.
