With so many Apple Watch configurations to choose from, making your preorder before Apple’s initial stock sells out next month could be difficult if you leave it until the last minute.

But you can choose and save your favorite Watch configuration now for instant preordering later through the Apple’s online store.

We’ve all endured Apple preorder days, and while they may be exciting, they can also be incredibly frustrating.

You either have to stay up late or wake up early, you can guarantee the Apple online wtore will be down more than it’s up, and if you don’t preorder what you want quickly, it will almost certainly sell out — and you’ll be waiting weeks for Apple to get more stock.

To avoid that with Apple Watch when preorders begin April 10, you can pick your favorite configuration in advance.

Simply visit the Apple online store at any time, and select the Watch you want to order. Ensure you pick the right face size and strap, and then click on the heart icon just above the Watch’s name.

You’ll need to sign in with your Apple ID, and the Watch configuration you’ve chosen will then be saved to your account. When it’s time to preorder next month, all you need to do is sign in, confirm the size of the strap you want using Apple’s sizing guide, and check out. Then your Watch should ship April 24.
