    The S0 to S2 and the S3 non cellular all have 2GB out of 8GB for downloading music. What's the deal on the LTE which has a total of 16GB? I'm hoping that extra 8GB is specifically for music, taking the total to 10GB Music? Who's got one and checked? I hate that on my S0 I have 5.6GB available, but most of it is reserved for apps that I don't need, and there really aren't that many anyway.

    I think that a review of the S3 on 9to5Mac mentions that 8gb can now cater for music

    I just noticed that with watchOS 4 it no longer says in the music section on the iPhone watch app how many songs you are able to store on the phone or how many gigabytes of music you're able to store on your phone.

    Is there a section that I am not finding where it says what the limit is on how many songs you can have on your phone?

    How do you know is 2gb? And do you have the LTE version?

    This restriction is really stupid Apple.

    Nippyjun the specs on Apples store have always said 8gb, 2gb for music. They say nothing about the LTE watch. But it's crazy because nobody has 6gb of watch apps. They don't exist. And we definitely don't have 14gb of apps. I hope they change it when they launch streaming music. I can't even use LTE with my network, but I can use more music storage.

    Well. Just to confirm from personal experience. My S3 LTE just arrived. My 2.5gb playlist still doesn't fit.

    You get an error message stating that the watch can’t hold more than two gigs, but if add the music it still syncs. Check my screenshot, LTE version here

    Must be a bug. I only chose the Auto options, Heavy Rotation, New..., Fav..., and Chil... and I show I'm using 4gb. I didn't get a warning, but I didn't add any other playlists or albums. On my series 2 I wasn't able to have the Heavy Rotation checked because of the warning. I bet this will get patched soon.
