I have an Apple Watch 3. But that is how long Spotify has to give me an app that lets me stream to the new watch without my iPhone. I love Spotify, but I can’t wait indefinitely to stream to the watch.

Apple Watch is capable of playing music with the remote control of iPhone, or syncing 250 songs for playback without iPhone, which is super useful for outdoor workouts. Before starts, the music (from Apple Music, purchased from iTunes, or added from other sources) needs to be in Apple Music app on iPhone before synced to Apple Watch.

Fortunately, the good news is that Spotify is finally released on Apple Watch, thus Apple Watch owners who use Spotify are able to control and play Spotify music on their wrist directly. Because the features like offline listening and Cellular stream are still missing, here we would like to share with you an alternative way to sync Spotify music or playlists to Apple Watch for offline playback without iPhone.
