How to sync music to your Apple watch
When the Apple watch 2 was announced, one of the biggest thing that stood out to me was the built in GPS. Well what does it mean in terms of practicality? Lets just say that now with the Apple watch 2 , you wont have to carry your phone around with you when you go out for a run or a workout.
However if you don’t have your phone while you’re on your run, then you may miss that specific playlist you built for your workout. BUT, that was before the Apple watch 2. A lot of people don’t realize this but you can store up to 2 gigs of music on your Apple watch. It may not seem like a lot but its plenty to last you a few miles or through your workout without having to repeat a song.
So in order to sync music to your watch, you first have to create a playlist. However i should mention that you are limited to syncing only 1 playlist on your watch so pick your songs carefully. Once you have your playlist setup open up the Apple watch app on your iPhone and select ‘music’. Then select ‘synced music’ and find the playlist you want to sync. The next time you set your Apple watch on its charger, that playlist will automatically sync with the watch. However note that the syncing process will take some time so you should do this ahead of time and not just before a workout.
After you the syncing process has completed , you may not see the playlist immediately on your watch but once you’re out of range from your iPhone you will get a message that your music library cannot be found. If this happens then firmly press on the screen to reveal the option to select a source. Choose ‘watch’ and your playlist should now be visible and you should be good to go. You can now enjoy music right from your watch!
