What's an LTE enabled watch?

If you need to ask then you don't need it.

Go for a walk, have a coffee, read a book (or do something that doesn't need wi-fi for a day).
I missed it on the front page:

That's pretty cool to be honest.

otherwise I'd buy one like a shot. On the other hand, the new watch looks like it might finally be worth buying - as a keen cyclist, if it allows me to run a cycling app and has built-in GPS, then I'm sold!

That is, of course, depending on the price.

The Apple Watch 2 had a GPS, so I should think the Apple Watch 3 has.
I saw this dual Sim yesterday on a Samsung - looked interesting.

The 6 is so much better. Also got the maximum memory on it, so all my music is there now. Don't bother with other digital sources any more, they sound no better.

Not keen on Samsung, the day I left the computer industry I went with Apple for computers, tablets and phones, and have never looked back.

Storage...
I don't think they're interchangeable. They're 2 distinct entities. Memory is RAM while storage is the hard drive.

They are. They're exactly the same thing - RAM, ROM, SD cards, even CD-ROM. ALL memory is storage, even our own.

As per the link I posted:

A Lot of Confusion
What has caused the most confusion with these terms is that several common storage devices use "flash memory" chips (see below). Consequently, people think storage and memory are the same. To avoid all confusion, refer to "storage" and "RAM" rather than storage and memory.

This can be checked across different sources.
