While the Apple Watch relies heavily on the iPhone for much of its functionality. We already covered the things that the Apple Watch can do without the iPhone. One of the coolest things that was not covered was the fact that you can listen to music on the Apple Watch without an iPhone. The Apple Watch can become a stand alone iPod. The Apple Watch comes with 8GB of internal storage. That’s not a lot of space and what’s more you will only get at most 2GB of that storage space. That is enough to carry at least 250 music. Here’s how to create a playlist and transfer music to your Apple Watch.


How to transfer to music to your Apple Watch

  1. Place your Apple Watch on its charger. Make sure it’s in range of your iPhone.
  2. Open the Apple Watch companion app on your iPhone and tap on My Watch.
  3. Scroll down and select Music.
  4. Tap on Synced Playlist and select a playlist. Note: You can only select a single playlist to sync with Apple Watch.
  5. The app will note the transfer as Sync Pending.
