    How much RAM does the Apple Watch have?

    We know it has 8GB SSD space but how much RAM? Or is it some kind of flash that is used as both drive space and memory at the same time?

    Oh no, please not this. We'll have throngs of posters whining about it for no reason and claiming that they're not buying until it has 2GB. :(

    Lol I was thinking the same thing after reading this. Let's all get the watches first and give it a chance lol.

    You're kidding :) - not buying one until they throw in 4GB or make it user upgradable. I want something future proof for the next 5 years (yes, I will buy the new model in a year's time - but what about resell value?).

    Not this, the last thing we want to hear about is 'ramgate'.

    Sigh. Yeah. I do have to say, I doubt it really runs/multitasks to more than one app, so, it's not like the issue with the iPhone 6 and large web pages where more would be useful. (Which has been somewhat fixed in 8.3 with code changes, it appears...)

    If OP created this thread "tongue-in-cheek," then major props.

    If not, then dear lord do most of us need better things to do.

    I'm not worrying about "not enough". My iPhone 5 has 1GB ram I believe and it's just fine by me. I was just curious as to how much it has, compared to say the iPhone.

    This is not about winging the watch does not have though Ram as people are saying is my intention. These people are totally wrong. I just wanted to know if anyone knows how much RAM the watch has. Tough day on MR when you get blasted for asking simple questions out of curiosity.

    [edit]I read the ifixit teardown and it says 8GB flash but it does not say anything about how much RAM. Very odd I thought they would omit something as major as that. So I am asking here.
