Apple Watch Sells Out Almost Instantly

We all knew how much demand there would be for the long awaited Apple Watch, and most were not surprised at the short time involved to have a complete sellout of on-hand stock. The rapid sell out time is attributed to both consumer demand and a predicted shortfall of inventory. Pre-order deliveries now stretch all the way into late June or early July.

Apple Watch orders are being taken only online, another unprecedented move by the company. Customers who want to actually try on a Watch -- not just look at them under glass -- must make appointments at an Apple retail store. As reported earlier, those appointments are in 15-min. increments, the time allowed by Apple for a fitting and a quick explanation of the device's features and functions.
