No Apple Watches in store until June, Ahrendts tells staff as April 24th date removed from website | 9to5Mac

Angela Ahrendts has told Apple Store staff that the Apple Watch is unlikely to be available for in-store purchases before June – but they should expect the usual ‘blockbuster launches’ in retail stores for future products.

I’m becoming more and more content in my decision to wake up at 2am last Friday to get my pre-order in. Inventory looks to be incredibly low for the Watch, and a two month delay in having them in-store is pretty shocking.

Based on the early reviews and extremely constrained inventory, it seems clear that Apple is just barely getting this thing done in the nick of time. I would expect to see a lot of small updates pushed to the Watch in its first few months as Apple get everything nailed down. By the holiday season, Apple Watch will hopefully be faster, more capable, and more available to purchase than it is right now.
