With millions of devices shipped to customers with each Apple launch, sometimes someone is lucky and gets a new product sooner than expected. This time around, Redditor playalisticadillac received an Apple Watch Ultra from AT&T two days before the official debut, sharing some footage on the social media site.


The images include unboxing and comparisons to the previous generation Apple Watch 45mm, and while we’ve seen the device in reviews, it’s still great to hear from an actual consumer. Responding to questions on Reddit, playalisticadillac says the watch isn’t as big as expected on a smaller wrist and pairs well with the Milanese Loop strap.
