    Can someone also check their AW3 with cellular and tell me what your AW3 says? Mine says 13 GB. I know we don't get the whole 16 GB, but "missing" 3 GB is excessive, I think.

    It’s just size of the software.

    16GB when formatted is around 14.4GB so Watch OS and the default apps must be around 1.4GB leaving you with 13.

    In About > Capacity, but there’s also About > Available, that means to me Capacity is max storage size after formatting, and Available is what’s left over for watchOS and apps and other data. That’s not correct? Right now, Available for me is 11.3 and Capacity is 13.0, so apps, photos, and watchOS took up 1.7 GB? I have got 72 apps, 120 photos, and 0 songs. It’s that reasonable, would watchOS + 72 apps + 120 photos = 1.7 GB? Or should it be much bigger?

    Would watchOS be like 1.4 GB? 14.4 GB - 13.0 = 1.4 GB. And 72 apps + 120 photos = 1.7 GB is more realistic??
