Today is a huge day for anyone who was lucky or fast enough to order their Apple Watch two weeks ago. Apple begins shipping Watch orders today and those new users will be greeted with over 3,000 Watch specific apps in the device's built-in store. Apple Watch is still not available for in-store purchases and if you preorder today, it will likely ship in in June (depending on model availability). So the grey market demand for this thing will be insane.
It seems that Apple's gambit of showing the Watch SDK to developers early has paid of with tremendous response from existing and new developers who are looking to make their services accessible from the new wearable. Journalists have been deluged with releases from app manufacturers promoting their new applications. For a good idea of what it is like for Canadians to use Apple Watch check out Mike Yawney's post on 25 days with the Apple Watch and what I used it for - Hit jump for some of the Watch apps available in Canada today.
