Apple Watch is very suitable for people like outdoor sports. Listening to some music is an absolute dream when you're exercising. As the most popular music service, Spotify might be the music service of choice for many sports enthusiasts. In this post, we will share with you two approaches to enjoy Spotify Music on Apple Watch easily and effectively.

Method 1: Use Spotify App for Apple Watch

Spotify is available as a free download on the App Store. So Spotify users are able to use an Apple Watch Spotify app to play Spotify tracks from the wrist. You'll need to have an iPhone or later running iOS 10 and above, as well as an Apple Watch with watchOS 4 and above. These steps will work for both free and premium Spotify users. Let's begin.

1.Launch the Apple Watch app on your smartphone.

2.In the My Watch tab, under the heading Installed on Apple Watch, check that Spotify appears in the list. If it isn't, scroll down to the section titled Available Apps and tap the INSTALL button next to Spotify.

Method 2: Play Spotify on Apple Watch without Phone

Spotify's Apple Watch has its limitations: It is just a controller for your iPhone, meaning you can not play the music from the Watch, but on your iPhone. Furthermore, you can't use the Apple Watch app to select individual songs to play, but choose recent items. Another major oversight is the inability to store music on your Apple Watch and listen offline.

Don't worry, here we will come up with an alternative way to help you. With large capacity storage, you can sync and play tracks to Apple Watch. However, when putting Spotify music on the Apple Watch, you may encountered something of an issue: we couldn't get anything from Spotify. That's because Spotify music are encoded in DRM-ed OGG Vorbis format which is not supported by Apple Watch.

So if you want to sync Spotify Music to Apple Watch, first you need to remove DRM and convert Spotify music to audio formats supported by Apple Watch. TunePat Spotify Converter is a multi-functional software for you. With it, you can completely get rid of the DRM from Spotify and convert the DRM-free Spotify songs to Apple Watch.
