The all new Apple Watch 4 features a bigger screen, all new features and several great reasons to place your Apple Watch 4 pre-order this week. Before you pull out your wallet, make sure you check out these reasons to skip the Apple Watch 4 this week.

Apple finally unveiled the new Apple Watch Series 4 at an event this week alongside the new iPhone XS, iPad Pro and a whole host of other cool tech. It’s going on sale on September 21st in stores, but you can pre-order the Apple Watch 4 this week and get it delivered on the release date.

Apple Watch Series 4 pre-orders start at 12:01 AM Pacific on September 14th, that’s 3:01 AM Eastern. You can order from Apple directly, from retailers like Best Buy and from carriers if you want the model with LTE.

The Apple Watch 4 now comes in 40mm and 44mm sizes with a biggers screen, epic new heart features, better battery life with GPS tracking and other important upgrades like the ability to take an ECG, which might just save your life.

Spending a few hundred bucks on the new Apple Watch isn’t a small commitment, especially when you factor in the cost of an LTE model which comes with a monthly charge to keep it connected. The Apple Watch 4 is $399 and $499 with GPS as starting prices. .

You can walk into stores on September 21st and buy the Apple Watch 4 without a pre-order, but if you want a specific model or size you may end up out of luck. Stock moves very fast on the first day, and some stores will have more models than others.

This guide will help you decide if you want to pre-order the Apple Watch 4 so you get it on day one, or if it is a better idea to hold off and see how this first major change to the Apple Watch design handles in the real world.

If you want the new Apple Watch 4 on your wrist as soon as they are on sale, you should place a pre-order. 

There is a good chance that Apple will sell out of some models of the Apple Watch Series 4 this week, and into next. 

Many users have held onto older Apple Watch models, and this represents a massive change to the device that could convince users to upgrade. Couple this with the fact that watchOS 5 is the first update not coming to all Apple Watch models, and there are going to be more people looking to buy the new Apple Watch this fall. 

If you decide not to pre-order the Apple Watch 4, you will likely need to line up early or you may end up waiting for one to get delivered later this month or into October.
