Apple Watch in-store previews are starting on April 10, and that's the first day you'll be able to make a reservation to try one on too.
Pre-orders for the Apple Watch are scheduled to begin on April 10. So are in-store previews and try-ons so you can get a feel for what it's like before you plop down $349 to $17,000 for an Apple Watch. Taking of reservations for those try-on appointments? Also starting on April 10.
It's a slightly frustrating approach — not taking reservations until the day that appointments start, though it's worth noting that there will be two weeks worth of in-store previews before the April 24 launch. If you're not sure which Apple Watch model you want, you might just want to make an appointment. We don't have an exact time for when appointment reservations will open up, but it's safe to assume it'll be at the same 12:01 Pacific time as pre-orders… and it's safe to assume that Apple.com will be hammered in the process.
