Exactly the same reason I bought mine. 😕

 

I do believe I might have found a workaround... What I do is:

 

- Turn of Bluetooth on my phone, so that is not interfering with the watch (just in case).

- Turn on Wifi on my watch to get a data connection (I normally keep this disabled to save power).

- Turn the offline mode OFF in the Spotify app (to go online).

- Start playing a playlist or album in the Spotify app (this adds the playlist or album to the Recently played list in the app).

- Go to the Recently played list in the Spotify app.

- Go into the playlist or album in the Recently played list.

- Tap on the Download button/switch.

 

This succesfully downloads the playlist or album on my watch and after downloading I am able to turn off Wifi again, turn Offline mode ON in the Spotify app and still play my downloaded albums and playlists.

Hope this helps while we all wait for Spotify to some day fix their buggy app.

Thanks for the tip! I'll definitely try that and really hope it'll do wonders.

Adding that I have the same issue and that the workaround I have to use is the same one suggested by Rolighed

 

Also the change to having the pictures in the playlist menu is horrible and makes it extremely hard to find the playlist you want.  The simple list in text was a far far better solution.

So this has worked for me also the first time of trying. It's a shame as the first time I used the app it all worked fine. then the second time I go for a run with it it completley stopped working!

Hopefully this will work going forwards! Thanks for sharing

One question I have is, have you had to do this every time you want to go for a run, (it's fine if it is, just a shame really as it's a bit time consuming!) or will the app know the playlist is downloaded on there going forward?

I just bought a galaxy watch as a stand alone running device. First day the navigation in the Tizen app is horrible but at least it worked. Second day I went running I try to start offline saved music but nothing just error messages. Immediately after the run I packed the watch and sent it back. I hope Google will soon start releasing a Wear OS app for Youtube Music with offline option, because what spotify developed for Tizen is a huge joke of an app.
