Yes! I'm ordering a 42mm Stainless Steel with Black Sport Band. I am also going to order a blue Sport Band, I think they look fantastic!

Just curious.

My son will be ordering a 42mm Stainless Steel with a Milanese loop.

He's already played with & programmed on one (Invited to Apple) so it is a bit anticlimatic. But he's excited in any case.

Me, I'll be sleeping.. Meh smiling smiley

What company is he an app developer for (or is that information part of his NDA)?

I have big wrists, the slightly increased battery life was a minor factor.

He's an independent developer now - still a college student. Though he's had corporate summer internships as an iOS dev for a few years.

I'm going for the Stainless with the black sport band.

I'm assuming (yes, I know) that Apple will be offering more bands as time goes on. The link band is nice, but I'm hoping for something with a *little* more detail, similar to my Sub. Otherwise, I'll get the link band.

<sigh> I did *not* do my homework and so didn't see the clicky-heart thing to save my choice and streamline the order process.

Here's hoping.

I'm kinda bummed that it's 12:01 PDT. I'm too tired now. I hope they will still have April 24 delivery in the a.m.

LOL!

The 42mm is smaller than the Plastic Fantastic Pebble.

The 38mm has only one size (Small) for some bands, so unless your wrist is small one may *need* the larger Watch.

I got the Stainless Steel with the black Sport band.

What's your SDE (ship date estimate)?

From what little I've seen here and at AppleInsider, maybe one guy got an April 24 SDE.
