Only 75MB of storage for photos

Don't expect to store a ton of music on your Apple Watch. According to 9to5Mac, it has confirmed with Apple that the Apple Watch only has 8GB of storage, and only 2GB of that can be used to store your songs. That breaks down to roughly 200 songs, which is more than enough to get through a workout without your iPhone. You'll also be able to store photos on the Apple Watch, with 75MB of storage reserved for the Photos app. That's not much, but photos are downsized when downloaded from iCloud Photo Library, which will let you keep something around 100 photos on your wrist, according to 9to5Mac. The rest of the storage will be taken up by the OS and resources from other apps. And if you're thinking about spending more for the $10,000 Edition to get extra storage, that won't work; it comes with 8GB too.
