Apple Watch & iPhone Dock/Stand:

In this video I’m going to show you how to play music directly from your Apple Watch so you can listen to it on your AirPods without the presence of your iPhone!

I’ve talked to a lot of people who are having problems using their AirPods, bluetooth headphones or even a bluetooth speaker with their Apple Watch and found I was having an issue as well whenever I tried.

I would recommend pairing your AirPods with your iPhone through the usual process, if you’d like to see that in action please check out my video “Apple AirPod User Guide and Tutorial!”. Once you setup or pair your AirPods to your iPhone then they are automatically available to all of your other apple devices that you are logged into through the same iCloud login.

Then on your Apple Watch, you would just swipe up on the main watch face to access your apple watch control centre and change the airplay audio output by pressing the airplay button.

Once you are in the airplay output menu you should see your AirPods there already as an option since they were setup with your iPhone. You would just press the AirPods button and it you’d think it would work. And if it does, then right on!! But a lot of us usually end up with an error message saying “Connection Failed make sure your AirPods are turned on and in range”. I was getting this error message every time no matter what I did. You just need to essentially reset the bluetooth transmitter, which is really easy. before changing the airplay audio output to the AirPods put your watch in airplane mode for a short time.

To do this you first swipe up to access Control Centre on the watch and choose airplane mode. Make sure you wait until you get the status message at the top that says your “disconnected”. then you can turn off airplane mode and now go change the airplay output to your AirPods, now it works! You can now play music that you loaded to your watch, directly from your Apple Watch to your AirPods without your iPhone.

Now I know what many of you are probably asking, how do I get music on my watch and play it?

First on your iPhone open the watch app, from the main “my watch” tab scroll down to and press music. This will take you to the music menu where you can choose to sync any playlist from your iPhone to your Apple Watch. In my case you can see I chose my “music mix 2017” playlist. As you can see on this screen the Apple Watch has a maximum storage limit of 2 gb for music, but you can adjust this option to decrease the storage space or specify a song limit instead if you prefer. Personally, I just left it at 2 gb, but it’s nice to know you can control the space allocation if necessary.

Now that you’ve specified the music you just need to sync it over to your apple watch, this is the part that takes a while. As the description on this screen says “Music syncs when Apple Watch is on its charger. Once it’s synced music will be available on Apple Watch even when it’s out of range of your iPhone.” I usually charge my apple watch and iPhone overnight while I’m sleeping, I synced about 738mb worth of music over to my watch and if I recall that took 2 or 3 nights to copy over to my watch. so like I said, it’s takes a while. As a side note, if you like the Apple Watch and iPhone stand I use it’s available on amazon and isn’t overly expensive, I’ll leave a link in the description below if you’d like to check it out!

To play the music from your Apple Watch you just launch the music app. I usually just use the music complication to access it, as I find it faster and more convenient. Once in the app just scroll all the way to the top and choose the music source to play from, in this case the apple watch and then you can explore the music through either my music or playlists, I like using the playlists option because then it only shows what’s actually on my watch. I can then enter the playlist and select what I want to hear, it’s pretty easy. At any time you can switch back to your iPhone by either changing the source in the music app or changing the airplay output on your iPhone.

So now you know how to pair your AirPods with your Apple Watch and play music without your iPhone!! I find this really comes in handy when I go for an outdoor jog around the neighbourhood and don’t want to bring my phone with me!
