LISTEN TO MUSIC OFFLINE (EVEN WHEN YOUR PHONE ISN’T IN RANGE)
The latest Android Wear update enabled offline music playback via Google’s Play Music app - that means you can store audio tracks on your watch and listen to them even when your phone is out of range.
Start by opening Play Music on your phone, then head to the Settings screen and scroll down to the Download to Android Wear option – enable this to start syncing songs over to your smartwatch. Songs, albums and playlists can be marked for offline listening, just note that most smartwatches don’t have a huge amount of storage space, so you’ll have to be selective with what you transfer.
Once you’ve synced your music, go to the Play Music app on your watch. You’ll see a list of songs you’ve synced. You can swipe down to display different playlists, or swipe left on the chosen playlist to start playing it on shuffle. Swipe left again and you’ll get to the track listing, which will let you pick a specific track to play.
Note that very few smartwatches have their own speakers, so you’ll have to pair a set of Bluetooth headphones with your watch to listen to music.
