Every single Apple Watch will be shipping with 8GB of on-board storage, regardless if you buy Apple Watch, Apple Watch Sport, or Apple Watch Edition. The wearable device will be able to store up to 2GB of music and 75MBs of photos. The operating system also takes a portion of the storage, according to 9to5Mac.
Users will be able to store data on the Watch through the Apple Watch companion app found on iOS 8.2, which was released yesterday. For example, you can control music that’s playing from your iPhone, but you can also sync certain playlists and songs to your Apple Watch and play them by way of Bluetooth headphones.
This way, users can go out for a run without being paranoid that your iPhone may slip out of your pocket. The watch will also sync photos previously favorited from your iPhone on your iCloud Photo Library.
Both music and photos are stored locally on the device. So, if your iPhone dies you’ll still be able to view and listen to content on your Apple Watch. On average, 2GB of music is 200 songs depending on song quality and compression.
The Apple Watch pre-orders begin on April 10th. On the same day, you’ll be able to walk into a store and try an Apple Watch on for yourself. On April 24th, the wearable device will be available to ship in the United States, Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan and United Kingdom.
