Use the Apple Store App
If you haven't figured it out yet, the Apple Store App is the best place to go to get your pre-order in. This is more reliable than using the Apple website and you are way more likely to get the model you want quickly and get back to bed.
Download the Apple Store app to your iPhone or iPad now, and login with your Apple ID and password ahead of time so that you don't need to waste time later logging in and re-entering a password when you need to checkout and secure your Apple Watch 4 model.
If you don't use automatic updates on your iPhone or iPad apps, you should make sure this app is up to date, so that you don't run into issues there.
Yes, you can still run into issues when using the Apple Store app, but it's less likely than when using the website.
