Apple Watch Reservation
After it was launch a few weeks ago, Apple Watch was one of the most sough-after gadget in the first half of 2015. The period between the launch until one can order one, only strengthened consumer's resolve to purchase it the first chance they got. Now, that opportunity has arrived.

Anyone can now go into an Apple store and purchase an Apple Watch. The only problem is that they need to make an appointment first, assuming they don't mind jumping through a few hoops. The company opened up online reservations for Watch customers, which lets them pick a store near for pickup.

The four-step process starts with the user signing in to the dedicated page on Apple's site with their Apple ID. Then they will be asked to text a code to a number. The public will receive a text back with a registration code, which they then can input into the website, along with their phone number, to complete their reservation. They will be given a choice of the next available times.

Currently the watch is available in 23 states in the U.S., an indication that the company’s manufacturing capacity has caught up with demand. The US$ 599 Sport edition appears to be the most popular. It comes with a stainless steel body and a white band.

"We’re also making great progress with the backlog of Apple Watch orders, and we thank our customers for their patience," Jeff Williams, Apple’s senior vice president of operations, said in a statement announcing the watch’s retail availability.

Reservation times begin at 8:00 A.M. each day, and Apple says that some inventory could become unavailable during the reservation process due to high demand. In other words, reserve your time ASAP if you hope to get the Apple Watch you want.
