Is this enough for you ?
Would you like to see more storage on the next Apple watch ?

And do you already know what albums/songs your going to put on the 2gb Apple watch

I'm guessing you have to sync the Apple watch to iTunes to add the music ?
If so how

All syncing is done through the Companion App. :apple:Watch doesn't connect to iTunes.

2GB will be enough whilst Apple offers 2GB, it's the correct amount.

When this is changed to 4GB, this new amount will be exactly right and all you need. 2GB was limited

Following on from this, 8GB will be the next change, at which point, this new level will be the amount it should of been all along, 4G was too small, and 2GB was just silly.

In years to come we will find 16GB is the ideal size. 8 was not enough for most people, 4 was never enough, and OMG you remember the 1st model only had 2!

:D

I heard on the last vergecast the lady who did the review with the camera in her head was talking about using iTunes to put music on the watch
She went running with just the watch and Bluetooth headphones & left her iphone at home

Yes, that's more than enough. That's ~2000 minutes of decent quality audio. It will outlast the watch battery.

Exactly, and who is going to listen to more than 2000 hours of music on a single/run/bike ride? The whole point of the internal storage isn't to replace your iPhone/iPod; it's to be used in situations where it is inconvenient to carry a phone/media player, such as a run.

Exactly. This is the number one reason I'm getting the :apple: Watch. Carrying around my 6+ at the gym is becoming a bore. 2 gigs is plenty.

Given the battery issues of the watch, and the large storage of the iphoen , I'd just play some headphones into the phone

I don't understand why there isn't just internal memory you can use. I would rather have 2GB of photos than music.

Why keep a bunch of pictures on the watch?

It'd make more sense to keep them on your phone. Much higher quality with a bigger screen (so I see why they limited that more -- it's kinda pointless). Music is something that more people will use with bluetooth headphones while jogging or working out.

Well I guess I'll always have 2GB of free storage on my apple watch I'd rather have some important photos on my watch than music. I have no Bluetooth headphones.

The real question, if I work out with watch and iPhone, can I access iTunes Match and choose from my entire library?

More GB is just convenience to keep our electronic file junkyard on the watch and never have to prune any of it.

And whatever GB or feature Apple did not include would be a selling point for the next version - whether it's needed or not - most are nice haves

A lot of people refer to the music app as iTunes.

2,000 minutes, not 2,000 hours. However, I think even 2,000 minutes is overstating things by quite a bit. I made a smart playlist in iTunes that randomly selected songs downloaded from the iTunes store, up to a limit of 2GB. It contains 288 songs, or 1,016 minutes. Depending on song length and bit rate, I would say 2GB is probably going to be between 200 and 300 songs.

I think that's a fine amount, mind you. I have my doubts that I will ever even use this feature because I have no bluetooth headphones and never go anywhere without my phone. But we need to know what the actual situation is before we can discuss the issue.

As per my posted pic, all syncing is done through the Companion App. You will not see or mount the :apple:Watch in iTunes. It will all be through you iPhone.
