Apple Watch going on sale at Best Buy U.S. starting August 7

That'll greatly expand the retail options for people who don't live close enough to an Apple Store to make a trip convenient or even practical.
It also shows that the Apple Watch is being produced in sufficient quantiles, and Apple is seeing sufficient demand, to increase availability in such a significant way.
Given customer satisfaction levels—in one survey reaching 97%—and Tim Cook's comments about June sales being the company's best ever, none of that should come as any surprise.
