If you’re going to order Apple’s new Apple Watch Ultra 2, be prepared to face a lengthy wait for delivery if you order certain configurations. The new $799 wearable is available to order in the U.S. and more than 40 other countries.
The high-end Apple Watch will launch in stores and begin arriving to customers on September 22, but some configurations are already facing lengthy shipping delays as of late Wednesday.
MacRumors reports that they did a quick spot check of Apple’s online store in the U.S. and saw that models with an Alpine band in Blue in Medium/Large sizes already face 2-3 week shipping estimates for orders placed on late Wednesday. Meanwhile, Apple Watch Ultra 2 models with the Trail Loop in Orange and Beige for both S/M and M/L sizes face an even longer delay of 6-7 weeks.
There are still at least a half-dozen band options available for a September 22 launch day delivery.
Apple on Tuesday unveiled its new Apple Watch Ultra 2, which brings new features to Apple’s rugged smartwatch. The Ultra 2 boasts a new S9 PiP, a new double tap gesture, the brightest display ever, on-device Siri, and much more.
The S9’s boasts a new 4-core Neural Engine that can process machine learning tasks up to twice as fast as the Apple Watch Series 8. The Apple Watch Ultra 2 has the same 36-hour battery life with regular use and up to 72 hours in Low Power Mode.
