    My series 2 ships with 5.2GB. What about your model?

    Why does series 4 come with more storage?

    The newer Series 4 has double the storage (16GB) of the Series 2 (8GB), so it would naturally have more free space.
    The WatchOS would be a different configuration between those 2 models, and S2 architecture is 32-bit, where the S4 is 64-bit. That would account for the difference of a system space used (in your example) with 2.8GB on the S2, and 3.5GB on the S4.

    It's not that complicated. Your question is already answered. wOS itself uses roughly 1/3 of your 8GB. I never run into storage problems with my S0 which also does have 8GB.

    Okay. Sometimes watch is sluggish on os 5 but most of the time it works great.

    Maybe try a fresh install, i.e. setup as New, versus from a restore...
