Apple Watch Ultra Available for Pickup Today Without Pre-Order

Apple Watch Ultra orders are beginning to arrive to customers around the world. For customers who forgot to pre-order an Apple Watch Ultra or simply decided to wait, many configurations are now estimated for delivery in 3-4 weeks, but the good news is that same-day or next-day pickup is now available at select Apple Store locations.

A quick spot check of Apple's online store reveals that many Apple Watch Ultra models with the Alpine Loop or Ocean Band are available for in-store pickup today in countries such as the U.S., Canada, and the U.K., but Trail Loop models are much harder to find. In-store availability will likely deplete quickly as the day goes on.

To order a product with Apple Store pickup, add the product to your bag on Apple.com or in the Apple Store app, proceed to checkout, select the "I'll pick it up" option, enter your ZIP or postal code, choose an available Apple Store location, select a pickup date, and select a 15-minute check-in window. Payment is completed online, and a valid government-issued photo ID and the order number may be required upon pickup.

A few Apple Watch Ultra models may also be available for walk-in customers at Apple Store locations with enough inventory, but your mileage may vary. Walk-in customers may be placed into a separate queue with lower priority upon arrival to the store.

The second-generation AirPods Pro are also available for Apple Store pickup starting today.

I wouldn't have it even if Apple sent me one for free. It's by far one of the ugliest Apple products ever.
This watch is far from ugly. Looks great IMHO.

Bought one at 7am in the app and biked to pick it up at 9:30. Awesome weather, store wasn’t crowded, and I love the build and finish in person much more than I was expecting to. For grins, I put on my “vintage” Apple Saddle Leather band while I get used to it. Makes it look like a dad watch.

Looks awesome to me, now if I can find a spare $800 sitting around… LOL
Thanks. Yeah, paying $800 (plus local tax) for something that won’t last forever gets more difficult as one gets older, especially since my SS Series 4 was still a good watch. But at least my had-to have-it-back-then $450 link bracelet looks good to me on the Ultra because of the brushed steel.

I just wish there were more band choices.
All 42mm and up bands fit it
