Apple-Watch-with-musicThe Apple Watch has eight gigabytes of onboard storage, of which up to two gigabytes can be used to keep music files on the device. You can sync a playlist to your Apple Watch to listen to music when the iPhone is out of range, remove songs from the device at any time and more.

In this post, I’m going to teach you how to make a dedicated Apple Watch playlist and sync it to the wearable device through the companion app on your iPhone, find the playlist on your wrist and enjoy your synced track through wireless headphones or speakers.

You can stream any song residing in your iPhone’s library to the Apple Watch, or play it directly on the phone. But in order to listen to music when the iPhone is out of range, you must first sync some music to your Apple Watch.

The Apple Watch companion app won’t let you just select a few songs to transfer to the Apple Watch — you must first create a dedicated playlist.

You can keep one playlist on your Apple Watch at a time. Storage limitations apply, which we’ll discuss at the end of this article.

How to create a new music playlist on iPhone

In the following example, I’m going to show you how to create a sample playlist titled ‘Apple Watch Music’ in the iOS Music app on your iPhone.

Then, we’ll add some songs to it and sync the playlist to our wearable device.

Step 2: In the Music app, tap the Playlists icon at the bottom. If you can’t see it, tap More and then hit Playlists. A new screen showing all your playlists will pop up. Tap New Playlist at the top to create a new playlist.

Tip: If you can’t see New Playlist, that’s because it’s hidden at the top. Just pull down slightly on the interface to reveal the option.

Step 3: Name your playlist and tap Save. For the sake of simplicity, we shall name our playlist ‘Apple Watch Music’. In the next step, we’re going to add some music to it.

Step 4: Tap either the Songs or Artists icon at the bottom (or tap More, then Songs or Artists) in order to search for music on your iPhone to add to the newly created playlist. Tap the plus sign next to each song you wish to add to the playlist.

Tip: To quickly add all album/artist songs at once, tap Add All Songs at the top.

Step 5: When you’re finished, tap Done in the upper right corner. You will return to the Playlists screen, which should now list your newly created playlist.

To remove songs from your Apple Watch playlist, or add new ones to it, use the following steps. The process applies to any playlist in the iOS Music app, not just the custom one you’ve created specifically for syncing songs to your Apple Watch.

Step 1: Tap the Music icon on your iPhone’s Home screen to open the app, or use Spotlight to search for it.

Step 2: Tap Playlists icon at the bottom, or navigate to More > Playlists.

Step 3: Pick a playlist by tapping it. We’re going to edit the Apple Watch Music playlist we’ve just created so let’s tap on it. Now hit Edit at the top of the screen to start editing your playlist.

Step 4: To delete songs from the playlist, tap the minus sign next to a song. To add more songs, tap the plus sign in the upper right corner.

Tip: You can also remove all songs from the playlist by tapping Clear, or delete the whole playlist entirely by tapping Delete.

Step 5: When adding songs to the playlist, first navigate to Songs, Artists or Albums. Next, tap the plus sign next to a song to add it to your playlist. Hit Done in the upper right corner when you’re finished.

How to sync your playlist to Apple Watch

Now that we have created a custom playlist with some music in it, it’s syncing time! Like many other things, it’s done through the Apple Watch companion app on your iPhone.

Step 1: Open the Apple Watch app on your iPhone by tapping its icon on the Home screen, or use Spotlight to search for “Apple Watch”.

Step 2: Go to Music > Synced Playlist on the Apple Watch app. You should see a screen listing all the playlists available in the iOS Music app.

Step 3: Now tap the playlist you want to synchronize to your Apple Watch. When a Sync Pending message appears, your playlist will begin syncing from the iPhone to your Apple Watch. If it reads “Syncing…”, your music has just begun transferring to the Apple Watch.

Tip: After the playlist has been synced to the Apple Watch, its name should appear next to Music > Synced Playlist in the Apple Watch companion app.

Step 4: You’re advised to wait until the sync is finished before using your Apple Watch. To see the sync progress, open the Apple Watch app on your iPhone and tap Music.
