Apple Watch Pre-order starts 12:01am PDT on April 10

Apple just added a fine detail on the Apple Watch page. The pre-order start time on April 10 is midnight.

Sorry East Coast! You will have to suffer and get up at 3am ET to pre-order an Apple Watch on April 10. Apple has updated today the Apple Watch page on with a specific time for the pre-order start. Apple stats 12:01am PDT as pre-order start.

For Europeans this is great. It is not too early. Brits can order at 8.01am and the French and Germans can order with their second coffee at 9:01am. For New Yorkers the pre-order will be tough. 3am is an ungodly time to get up. If you then have to deal with a slow unresponsive website it will be hell.

A good tip has been in the past to use the Apple Store App to order new products. It might also be the better way this time around. Apple is for sure taking down the Apple Store ahead of the pre-order launch. Depending on waiting traffic hitting the site the pre-order launch might be delayed on the site, but not on the app.

I already have put the Apple Watch I want in my favorites. So I just have to hit the buy button when it becomes available. As most of the tech oriented crowd, I go with the lower cost Apple Watch Sport. Electronics get old quick there is just now way of denying it and there is likely an Apple Watch 2 in 2016.

The Apple Watch starts at $349 for the small case (38mm) Sport Edition. The Apple Watch Pre-order starts on April 10 in 9 countries (Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, the UK and the US) and the Apple Watch ships on April 24.

Apple Watch introduces a new design and iOS-based user interface created specifically for a smaller device. Apple Watch features the Digital Crown, a new way to scroll, zoom and navigate fluidly, without obstructing the display. The Digital Crown also serves as the Home button and a quick way to access Siri. The Retina display on Apple Watch features Force Touch, a technology that senses the difference between a tap and a press, providing a new way to access controls within Apple Watch apps.

The Apple Watch introduces the Taptic Engine and a built-in speaker that together discreetly enable an entirely new vocabulary of alerts and notifications you can both hear and feel. Apple custom-designed its own S1 SiP (System in Package) to miniaturize an entire computer architecture onto a single chip. Apple Watch also features Wi-Fi 802.11b/g and Bluetooth 4.0 to pair seamlessly with your iPhone. Besides the smart watch features the Apple Watch keeps time to within 50 milliseconds of UTC, the universal time standard when synching regularly with the iPhone.
