Using Spotify with Android Smartwatch

I am getting a smartwatch and I am mostly going to be using it for working out. I would very much like to use spotify on the watch connected with a bluetooth headset so I do not need to carry my phone around everywhere at the gym. Is there a way to use spotify on my smartwatch in offline mode so my playlist is downloaded directly on to the smartwatch without me having to carry my phone around?

 

Thank you,

Adam

Hi all,

  please remove this solution to the first question.

  This application doesn't  provide a feature to store music on a smartwatch, it's "just" a remote control.

  The issue doesn't concerns if it's possible to have a remote control with a smartwatch but if  it's possible to play some music from spotify without a smartphone phone and without a internet connexion. This feature is already provided by Google Play Music (in the offline setting, the user can choose where to store the music: in the smartphone or in the smartwatch)... Currently I use spotify and I wait this feature ..

Thank you for the response!

 

It looks to me that the link you shared with me talks about using offline mode with an android smartphone. I know how to do this and have been doing this already at the gym. However, it is very annoying to carry my phone around the gym which is why I got a smartwatch so I can just play music off of that more conviently since it will be attached to my wrist. It is my understanding that a smart watch does not use the conventinal google play apps and that instead it uses Andriod Wear apps. Will I be able to use offline mode on my smartwatch is my question, so that I dont need to carry my phone around at the gym (which is very annoying).

Ahhhh Okay, so with this app I should be able to access my offline playlists and play them directly from my smartwatch? That is exactly what I was looking to do. Now I can leave my phone in my locker and use my smartwatch at the gym instead! Perfect. Thank you so much for the help Bittencourt :)

Hi Rodrigo, do I need any special smartwatch to be able to listen offline to my Spotify playlists?

 

can you suggest me any features it must have, consider that I know nothing about smartwatch since I have never been interested in the subject, but to be able to go out and running with Spotify and without my smartphone or  big expensive IPod is a good reason to buy one!

 

thanks a lot in advance

Rosario

Hi @moro70,

 

Please read this article to see if you find the one that best fits your needs.

 

Regarding the offline listening, I might be wrong but I guess that currently this is the only one with this feature:

I've actually gone and bought myself a Sony Smart watch 3 on the basis of this answer "confirming" what Adam was asking - which now actually turns out to be wrong?
