This also means that when you start using your Apple Watch more and more, you will essentially run out of that storage space, and it’s best to keep everything in check before you burn out completely in a short period of time.

For those who don’t know, regardless of which Apple Watch model you buy, the wearable comes with 8GB of internal storage space as standard. That might sound like a lot for a lot of people, but the story gets a little brisk when you realize that less than 6GB of that available storage can be used by you if you are currently on the latest version of watchOS. What’s more important to know is that the Apple Watch allows you to store a limited amount of songs and photos on your device, so you have to picky in certain cases what goes on and what doesn’t.

Nonetheless, here’s how you can check the available and remaining storage on your Apple Watch.
