With millions of devices shipped to customers with every Apple launch, sometimes someone is lucky and gets a new product ahead of schedule. This time, Redditor playalisticadillac received the Apple Watch Ultra from AT&T two days before the official appearance, sharing some photos on the social networking site.


The images include unboxing and comparisons to the previous generation 45mm Apple Watch, and while we’ve seen the device in review, it’s always good to hear from the actual consumer. In response to questions on Reddit, the playalisticadillac says the watch isn’t as large as one would expect on a smaller wrist, and it fits nicely on the Milanese Loop band.
