There was confusion after Apple said that before the Apple Watch is released people can go over to its retail stores to “try on by appointment.” This led many to believe that perhaps they will have to mandatorily obtain an appointment before they can go to a store and check out Apple’s first smartwatch. A report published today says that appointments are not required to try on the Apple Watch.

The company’s latest memo to retail employees reveals that walk-in customers that want to try the Apple Watch will be accommodated, reports 9to5mac, adding that while an appointment can be made to check out the wearable device they are not necessary at all.

Apple is going to start taking pre-orders for the Apple Watch on April 10th. That’s also the day the smartwatch arrives in the company’s retail stores for “preview.” The memo states that “…appointments can be made online or through the Apple Store app— they’re recommended, but not necessary. Customers who come to your store without one will be taken care of…”

Even if Apple isn’t making appointments mandatory walk-in customers will presumably still have to wait for an available employee to help them out. If all of them are busy with folks who made an appointment previously then walk-in customers will have to wait for their turn, which sounds absolutely fair to me.
