    I currently have an Apple Watch but have 2GB of music stored locally on it. I don't have Apple Music and have no intention of getting it. I've been running with my Airpods and Watch while playing music through bluetooth. Before I upgrade my OS, will this functionality still work?

    You will not be able to select your iPhone as a music source with watchOS 4, your music and playlists have to be stored locally on your watch. You can manage the songs and playlists you want using the Watch app, as usual.

    Think you can store more than 2 GB. now. Not sure is it limited to S3 or not.

    > 2 GB only on S3 LTE because it has more internal storage (16 GB vs 8 GB).

    That was a bug. iOS 11.0.1 allows more than 2GB of stored music on the S3 LTE Watch now.
