You’ll be able to pre-order the new Apple Watch in just over a week, according to Hermès, one of Apple’s official partners.
In multiple emails from Hermès, one of Apple's official partners for the Apple Watch, its customer service stated that the “Apple Watch Series 7 will be available for preorder beginning October 8. 2021. Please let us know if you have any further questions!”
A source at Hermès has privately confirmed the validity of these emails without confirming the date specifically. This ties in with what had been announced by leakers who claimed that the Apple Watch was due to be released sometime around October.
