Last week, Apple opened – with a little delay – pre-orders for its new connected watch. The Apple Watch Series 7 adopts a design substantially similar to the previous model but with a larger screen, for a starting price set at 429 euros for the aluminum case. A price which can however exceed 1000 euros with for example titanium instead.
If now delivery times can reach November in some cases, the very first buyers to have chosen the device should nevertheless receive it this Friday. This is what seems to confirm recent information according to which Apple has started to indicate preparing shipments to its customers. Most of the time, it is then effectively only a matter of days before the parcel arrives on its porch.
Pictures from this week?
It is possible, however, that a select few could receive Series 7 before October 15. We could then discover quick grips in advance. If so, most of the tests should end up on YouTube. We will of course stay informed in order to share the videos in question with you as soon as they are released, perhaps in a foreign language.
However, as consumers have seen in the past, Apple products rarely arrive before the date communicated by the manufacturer. What is more, as Tim Cook has already assured in the past, the firm is currently struggling against excessively high transport rates. It is also common to see items arrive with a little delay, generally due to miscalculations on the part of subcontractors such as UPS.
Stock at resellers
The best solution to avoid potential delays therefore seems to go through specialized shops, which usually order in bulk. What’s more, some of them have their own delivery service: a simple way to avoid intermediaries right up to the end customer.
