Apple Watch comes with 8GB internal storage, 2GB for music and 75MB for photos

 The Apple Watch has 8GB internal storage space, but you can only use up to 2GB for music and 75MB for photos.

Planning to get the Apple Watch and use it as a portable music player? You may want to reconsider this after reading this article.

According to 9to5Mac, Apple told the publication that all three collections - Watch, Sport and Edition - will ship with 8GB internal storage space. On paper, the Apple Watch boasts more internal storage space than its Android counterparts which generally have half the storage capacity, users can only store up to 2GB of music and 75MB of photos on the Apple Watch.

To put that into numbers, 2GB of storage space allows you to load approximately 200 music files of decent quality while 75MB gives you about 100 photos. The remaining storage space is likely reserved for the operating system and preloaded apps. 

At the moment, apps are mainly stored on the iPhone where the interface will be projected on the Apple Watch. True native apps will only be available later this year with the arrival of the SDK. The Apple Watch will go on sale in 9 countries on April 24 with pre-orders starting on April 10.
