While most Apple Watch owners will be anxiously awaiting their deliveries this morning, some stores around the world are actually selling the new smartwatches without the need to order online. That might sound surprising given Apple’s continued warnings of online-only orders, and a rather unusual launch experience for its latest gadget, but there’s limited supply in some locations.
That doesn’t mean you can’t go out and buy one in a few places around the world, though; I bought one in London a couple of hours ago, and it was easy enough to find one in Tokyo as well. I’m not entirely sure why I’ve bought an Apple Watch, but I have and it’s sitting on my wrist as I type these words.
I cover Microsoft at The Verge, and the software company has been rather active in supporting the Apple Watch recently, so that’s my excuse for owning one, I think. I ventured out to Dover Street Market in London to buy an Apple Watch.
