Apple Watch offers music on the go with 8GB of storage

Storage confirmed by Cupertino company, but there are limitations

The Apple Watch packs 8GB of on-board storage, with wearers able to add up to 2GB of music directly to the much anticipated smartwatch.

One of the biggest additions in the first Android Wear update was the option of storing and playing music without needing to be tethered to a smartphone and it's great the Apple's wearable will have this function right from the off.

9to5Mac have confirmed with the Cupertino company that independent music playing is on board, as well as 75MB of photo storage space.
