Same issue in Australia - the latest version of Spotify on Samsung gear seems to be buggy. 

 

The previous version worked fine however with the latest update I am no longer able to open my playlists or download songs offline without the app crashing and forcing me back to the 'your music' directory. 

 

Playlists have been removed to the minimum on my account as they were not all loading, watch has been reset to factory settings and latest version of firmware installed. Nothing has helped. 

 

On a side note the cover images for the playlists on the latest version makes the playlists hard to navigate. It was easier and simpler with plain text.

  1. Peter,

 

This is an issue limited to the latest version of the spotify app on the Samsung gear platform. 

 

2.4.1.1 was installed and was/is buggy. Whether this is due to the reduced ram on older watches or incompatibilities I am unsure. The work around's in your post do not really apply in this situation. 

 

The only thing I can confirm is that the previous version worked and the lastest does not and crashes constantly, particularly when saving playlists for offline use.  The app has been uninstalled and reinstalled, watch reset and is still unusable.

Not just Samsung Gear, I have the same problem with an Active 2. The app has ALWAYS prefered streaming over offline. Even though the tracks are saved on the watch, it streams the music if it has the possibility being connected to either WiFi, LTE or Bluetooth. You noticed this as everytime the watch lost WiFi or BT-connection, the music paused for a couple of seconds before the app realized that the music is also available offline and continued to play.

Now on the latest update of the app it just forgets about having the music offline altogether. The app just says "Unable to play. Please check your connection"
