Apple Watch pre-orders are only a few hours away. That was the good news. Now the bad news is you can only pre-order the Apple Watch online. However, you can still make an appointment to try one on. Nine countries, including the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, China and Hong Kong can pre-order starting in just a few hours. The demand and interest in the Apple Watch like all Apple releases is very high. That means the demand will outstrip supply at launch. So, if you are not ready to pre-order you are not on your computer ready to order the watch at 11:58pm EST,  you might as well forget getting it on launch day.  Apple Watch will be available at boutiques in major cities including colette in Paris, Dover Street Market in London and Tokyo, Maxfield in Los Angeles and The Corner in Berlin from April 24. The device will also be available for preview at Galeries Lafayette in Paris, Isetan in Tokyo, Selfridges in London. Keep in mind that you will be required to book a try-on appointment. You will not be able to walk-in to a store and experience the watch.

“We are excited to welcome customers tomorrow and introduce them to Apple Watch, our most personal device yet. Based on the tremendous interest from people visiting our stores, as well as the number of customers who have gone to the Apple Online Store to mark their favorite Apple Watch ahead of availability, we expect that strong customer demand will exceed our supply at launch. To provide the best experience and selection to as many customers as we can, we will be taking orders for Apple Watch exclusively online during the initial launch period.”~ Angela Ahrendts, Apple’s senior vice president of Retail and Online Stores
