Apple Watch UK pre-orders will begin at 8am on April 10

Apple fans champing at the bit to get a hold of the new Apple Watch will be able to hammer that pre-order button at 8:01AM on April 10.

In an update to the company’s Apple Watch website (via MacRumors), the firm finally revealed when users will be able to reserve their model ahead of the April 24 release date.

For Apple-obsessed Brits the timing is good news as it means most folks will be able to put down their money for the Apple Watch, Sport and Edition devices before leaving for work on the Friday morning.

Apple is accepting orders for the device through its website as well as the Apple Store app for iOS, where users will be able to customise their chosen model and strap.

Users hoping to try before they buy will reportedly be able to make an appointment to go wrist-on with the Apple Watch at their local Apple Store from April 10.

The 8am pre-order time in the UK vibes with midnight availability in Apple’s Pacific coast homeland. On the east coast of the U.S. it’ll become available at 3am, while those in Western Europe will be able to checkout from 9am on April 10.
