“In our report last week, we reported that internal models of the Apple Watch included 8 GB of storage,” Benjamin Mayo reports for 9to5Mac. “We have now confirmed with the company that the shipping units [all models] do indeed ship with an 8 GB storage capacity.”
“As a user, you are only allowed to use a subsection of that total space for certain types of data,” Mayo reports. “As confirmed with Apple, users are only allowed to store up to 2 GB of music on the Watch and up to 75 MB of photos for the Photos app.”
“2 GB of music equates to approximately 200 decent quality music tracks,” Mayo reports. “A very rough estimate indicates that you will be able to hold over 100 photos in the 75 MB of allocated local storage.”
