    Agreed. I ordered a Gold Aluminum Series 4 GPS to replace my Gold Aluminum Series 2, and I would have had a hard time deciding between the GPS and GPS+LTE if the GPS had still had 8 GB storage.

    Memory usually means RAM. I think you mean storage.

    Actually that is how much storage it has.:D The memory is not known but probably around 512MB to 1GB.:eek:

    EDIT: Eriamjh1138@DAN beat me to it.;)

    OG watch up to GPS S3 had 512MB RAM. LTE S3 allegedly has 768MB. S4, nobody knows until they do a teardown of it and a chemical dissolve of the polymer covering the SIP module.

    Anyone know the actual RAM in the S4? I know that's not what OP meant

    No you're good, just trying to see if I can get a quick fact :p . Many people think of storage as memory.

    This happens a lot, OP failed to distinguish the difference between Ram and memory in their opening post. The S4, however, Friday should have a confirmation once the Hardware releases and a teardown is complete.

    That's true, but I'd hate to see everything else updated but a bottle neck in memory. Speaks for longevity. Not everyone wants to upgrade every year.

    Tell that to my series zero. Apple ruined it with ****** iOS updates after 2.x. It’s nearly unusable, now.

    From the "old days". RAM = Random Access Memory", ie. Memory that can be read, and written to. ROM = "Read Only Memory", that is the memory that houses the OS, firmware, etc.

    I remember back when I was in Tech Support, people (mostly people calling in) used the term "Memory" to reference the Hard Drive in their systems. Just a little history..

    The god only version has 8gb of storage. The god + cellular version has 16tb of storage

    How much ram they both have has never been disclosed by Apple as far as I know

    No, both models of the series 4 have 16GB storage (it's also answered earlier in the thread.) https://support.apple.com/kb/SP778

    Pretty sure he means he wishes Geekbench would run on watchOS. And I agree – would be super interesting to see how fast Apples S1 – S4 SiPs actually are.

    Got it. Thanks. I was confused by that member when they used the word ‘make’. But as far as an actual breakdown of specs’, I’d imagine the Series 4 faster dual core processor (64 but) would run circles around the S1 chip in the first Gen watch, but the Series 3 uses a the dual core processor, And I would like to see a table comparison as well.

    Yeah, that's the one thing I hate about smartwatches – getting any performance metrics of the chips used is pretty much impossible. Also, I really hope Apple can double CPU speed again this year – at the rate they're adding features to watchOS, we're gonna need that speed sooner rather than later.
