My Question or Issue
I have the Spotify app downloaded on my phone and watch, I can control my music from my watch pretty easily so far. My issue comes when trying to stream spotify through my watch at the gym and leave my phone in my locker. I can't figure it out! as soon as I'm out of range from my phone my speakers cut out so my headphones obviously aren't connected through my watch. I was trying to adjust the playback from remote to wifi but when i choose wifi, it makes me log into my spotify account, i choose log in with Facebook like i do on any device but when i enter my credentials it says log in failed, invalid username/password. I've tried removing offline devices, uninstalling the app, restarting my phone/watch...nothing is working PLEASE HELP!!!
Solved! Go to Solution.
Leave it to the trusty users at Reddit to solve my problem. I had to log in with Spotify instead of Facebook for whatever reason (even though my spotify account is linked to facebook) I had to go to spotify.com_Log in_forgot password_reset pasword and then log in on my watch with my Spotify username and new password.
I'm not sure how or why i had this much trouble connecting my watch to wifi but i can now stream music through my watch without having my phone nearby as long as my watch is connected to WiFi.
