Sep 15, 2017 12:00 am PDT by Juli Clover
Alongside the iPhone 8 and the iPhone 8 Plus, the Apple Watch Series 3 and the Apple TV 4K are now available for pre-order from Apple's online storefront and through the Apple Store app.

First wave launch countries for the Apple Watch Series 3 include Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, China, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, the UK, the US and US Virgin Islands.


The LTE Apple Watch Series 3 models are only available for purchase in Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Japan, Puerto Rico, Switzerland, the UK and the US, as those are the only countries where Apple Watch cellular service is supported at this time.

The new Apple Watch Hermès models are available for pre-order in Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Japan, Switzerland, the UK and the US, while Apple Watch Nike+ pre-orders are being accepted in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, China, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Guam, Hong Kong, Hungary, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Kuwait, Luxembourg, Macau, Monaco, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Qatar, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, UAE, the UK and the US.

Supplies of the Apple Watch Series 3 could potentially be limited, so customers interested in launch-day delivery should order as soon as possible. In addition to a new LTE option, the Apple Watch Series 3 features a faster processor, a new W2 wireless chip, and better battery life.

The earliest pre-orders placed today for the Apple Watch Series 3 LTE and non-LTE models and the Apple Watch Series 3 Hermès models will deliver on Friday, September 22, while Nike+ models will be available starting on October 5.

As for the new Apple TV 4K, which offers 4K HDR connectivity for the first time, Apple has not provided a specific list of countries where it will be available for pre-order so presumably it will be available in all countries where the fourth-generation Apple TV is sold. Apple TV 4K orders placed today will ship out on Friday, September 22.


Apple Watch Series 3 pricing starts at $329 for the non-LTE model and $399 for the LTE model, with prices going up based on case material, size, and band. Apple TV 4K pricing starts at $179 for the 32GB model.

Ceramic White 42mm Apple Watch Series 3 and Apple TV 4k 64GB ordered through the Apple App at 3:02AM EST. If I can't order my damn phone until 10.27 I figured I might as well treat myself right? 9/22 delivery date on both watch and Apple TV :D

Done and Done.
2 - S3 Stainless. 1 - 38mm with Aubergine leather band and 1- 42mm
Completed that order and then went back for the aTV 4K.



Out of the country this time around so pre-order is at 9am instead of my usually 2 in the morning at home. This was a much better pre-order experience.

Darn it! Shoulda used the app. Site wouldn't load for me but then again I'm about as far away from California as you can get at the moment :)


You've gotta use the app every year, it's consistently on time and has never failed me.

MR did you guys just post this at 12:01 AM, or did you confirm the store was actually up?


I personally confirmed with the Apple Store app. App generally comes up before the online store.

I got the app to come up a few minutes past 2am central time, the website came up a minute or so later.

My wife wanted the 38mm SS Black Watch. I got the ATV 4K. Excited to start getting 4K, have previously been using my TV's own Netflix app to get 4K. Can't wait to get 4K out of Apple and will be nice when they bring the Amazon Prime app online.

Oh and shipping times are promising Friday 22nd with standard shipping.

Depends on version. 32gb still shows 22nd. Lucky I bought 2 64gb for 22nd delivery:D


I got mine at 14 past the hour. Glad I didn't wait, I thought I would have plenty of time, apparently I had less than 6 minutes to get The 64GB AppleTV 4K next Friday, Sept 22.

32GB version? I see that the 64GB version has a estimated delivery date of 2-3 weeks.


Nope, 64gb.
