Apple Watch Series 2 Now Available for Pre-Order Through Apple's Online Store

Alongside the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus, the second-generation Apple Watch, Apple Watch Series 2, is now available for pre-order from Apple's online storefront and through the Apple Store app.

Supplies of the Apple Watch Series 2 could be limited, so customers interested in launch-day delivery should order as soon as possible.

Apple Watch Series 2 features a second-generation chip that's up to 50 percent faster with 2x better graphics performance. It also has a second-generation display that's much brighter for more vivid colors outdoors, and it has built-in GPS for better fitness and location tracking.


Alongside the standard aluminum and stainless steel models, Apple Watch Series 2 is also available in a new pearl-white ceramic material that's four times stronger than stainless steel. Apple has also created new Hermès models and there's a new Apple Watch Nike Plus that's been developed in collaboration with Nike, featuring an aluminum body and a custom perforated Nike band.

Apple Watch pricing begins at $369 for the entry-level aluminum Sport model, $549 for the stainless steel Apple Watch, and $1,249 for the ceramic Apple Watch Edition. All three models can be ordered from the online store beginning now. Apple is also accepting pre-orders for Hermès and Nike models, but those won't ship out until late September and late October, respectively.

Upgraded Apple Watch Series 1 models, which feature the new S2 processor, are also available for pre-order at this time. Series 1 models start at $269.

The Apple Watch Series 2 will officially launch on September 16, which is the same date that some customers will begin receiving their devices at their homes.

We don't do auto posts for this kind of thing, just FYI. Store was up for some people at the time that I posted.

Order in at 2:11AM (Central), stupid wrong billing address slowed me down :( It seems it was up around 2:09.

Lets hope they have more watch supply this year than last. It does say Delivers: Sep 16th on both iPhone and watch on my confirmation.

got my Apple Watch Edition reserved - but will arrive on October 4th only. Couldn't get in store Pickup in Berlin.
For the iPhone Plus with 256GB situation is hopeless - specially with Vodafone (the worst mobile operator with regards to iPhone support - don't ask why I am bound to them)
Hopefully it is worth it. I was tempted, but went with an updated Apple Watch Hermes. 9/30 for me! :)
