Apple Watch Series 3 with cellular grabs 80% of model's pre-orders, topping 30% forecast
But judging from the data collected since pre-orders began on September 15th, it appears that this time the highly regarded analyst has had to change his estimate. Kuo now says that 80% to 90% of pre-orders will reserve a unit with cellular capabilities. Initial shipments arrive on September 22nd. Orders placed today for the cellular model will be delivered in 3 to 4 weeks, October 2nd for the non-cellular version.
Pricing for the Apple Watch Series 3 with cellular starts at $399 and $429 for the 38mm and 42mm size respectively. The non cellular timepieces are priced from $329 for 38mm, and $359 for 42mm. For those who are happy with the older Series 1 Apple Watch, prices begin at $249. Apple Watch Series 2 has been discontinued.
