Many Apple Watch 4 models are selling out for release day delivery through Apple, but if you know where to look you can still find the Apple Watch 4 in stock for delivery next week.
If you order the Apple Watch 4 from Apple you may need to wait until the middle of October to get your new watch, but if you look at retailers like Best Buy and Target you can find multiple Apple Watch Series 4 models in stock for release date pickup.
If you don’t want to go line up for the Apple Watch 4 release date at an Apple Store, this is the best way to make sure you get one of the new models on your wrist in September.
The Apple Watch Series 4 release date is Friday September 21st. Pre-orders are available today through many retailers, but you will not find many Apple Watch 4 deals right now.
How to Find an Apple Watch 4 In Stock
Forget calling stores and pestering employees to ask about the Apple Watch being in stock at Apple Stores or other retailers. You can check to see if anyone local or online has the Apple Watch 4 in stock, and then you can order one and possibly pick it up within an hour.
Check Apple Store Apple Watch 4 Stock
Apple typically has more stock, and gets shipments in each morning after the release date arrives. Your best bet is to look on the Apple Store app each morning and then reserve for in store pickup if they have a model you want.
In Stock Now at Best Buy, Target & B&H
Best Buy and Target both sell the Apple Watch Series 4 and most models are in stock for delivery on Friday September 21st, or shortly after.
Not all models are shipping by September 21st, but many are available and now it is faster than you will get the Apple Watch 4 from an Apple Store. You can still buy AppleCare+, go to Apple Stores for support and even get LTE models.
If you order from B&H Photo and some other online retailers you won’t need to pay sales tax if you are outside of NY or NJ.
In Stock Now at Most Carriers
If you want one of the Apple Watch 4 GPS + LTE models, you can go directly to your carrier and get one for release date delivery.
You may also find some Apple Watch 4 deals at carriers including free service for a few months and $50 off when you also buy an iPhone.
You can only buy the LTE models here, so if you want the GPS only option, you can’t go to a carrier. The LTE models are more expensive, but you can do payment plans at most carriers to break the cost out over 6 – 24 months.
