Apple Watch Series 8 and the second-generation Apple Watch SE hit stores last Friday. However, when it comes to the Apple Watch Ultra, the launch is scheduled for September 23. Yet one lucky buyer got their new Apple Watch Ultra delivered before its official launch.
As shared on Reddit, the customer purchased the Apple Watch Ultra with the Orange Alpine Loop watch band on pre-order through AT&T. Usually, Apple and its partners hold back shipments until launch day. But this time AT&T went ahead and started shipping the Apple Watch Ultra two days early.
As we’ve already seen in the reviews, the Apple Watch Ultra comes in a different box than other Apple Watch models – a much larger box than the original, by the way. Apple has also included a printed user guide with images and quick tips on setting up the device.
Interestingly, alongside the classic “Designed by Apple in California” slogan printed inside the box, there is also the coordinates “37°20’05.6 “N 122°00’32.3″W”, which are the exact coordinates of Apple Park in Cupertino.
The lucky customer shared a few photos showing the Apple Watch Ultra alongside a 45mm Apple Watch and even what the Ultra looks like with the traditional Milanese band. The buyer also mentioned a few things about the Apple Watch Ultra, such as the fact that the Alpine Loop band is more difficult to put on and take off the wrist.
