    Going to pick up some bluetooth headphones for jogging (without phone) & curious about music experience on the apple watch.

    Has anyone loaded songs on the actual watch? How much space / songs ?

    Thanks!

    I have loaded 117 songs and 1GB onto the Watch. More for the heck of it, than anything else. Didn't sync until I got home on WiFi, and it says it will sync over WiFi only. So there's at least one use of the WiFi radio in the Watch. It loaded 256kbps songs in their original format - I wish I could downsample, like I do in iTunes for my iPhone and iPad, to fit more. Quantity over quality for me there, I'm no audiophile.

    Sounds fine - range isn't an issue since I'm wearing both the watch and the headphones. Paired with my LG BT headphones.

    One note: Currently, you can only sync one playlist at a time, so it's best to create a special playlist just for the watch.

    I can confirm, that's what I did and it worked beautifully. Downloaded the songs to the iPhone that were in iTunes Match for me first, then synced it overnight when the Watch was on a charger.
