    I hope Apple lifts the 2gb limit for storing music on the watch. The LTE models have 16 GB so they should at least bump it to 8 for music. Id like to have more then 5 playlists when I go running wo the phone etc since streaming when available will drain the battery.

    I noticed this too! I tried to sync two playlists (one about 500MB, and one 1.7GB), and I got an out-of-space error.

    I looked in the Watch app on my phone under "General --> About", and it says that I my watch has a capacity of 13GB, and that I am currently using 11.7GB (I think my playlists are still synching).

    According to 9to5 Mac’s review you’ll be able to sync 8GB of music to the watch

    Maybe they messed up and this limit change is part of the update in a month for Apple Music?

    I'm also seeing Capacity = 13.0 GB. Isn't it supposed to be 16.0 GB? Is the missing 3 GB allocated to the Watch OS?
