My Question or Issue
After finally navigating how to download a playlist to my Apple Watch, I am now unsure of how to add tracks to this downloaded playlist beyond deleting the entire playlist, adding tracks, then re-downloading the entire playlist with added tracks.
When I add a new track to this playlist on my phone, it does not automatically download the new track to the downloaded playlist on my Apple Watch. And there is obviously no option to add individual tracks to the Apple Watch in any way.
So, am I correct that the only solution to updating downloaded playlists on the Apple Watch is to un-download the playlist from the Apple Watch, add/remove tracks from the playlist on the iPhone and then re-download the playlist onto the Apple Watch?

Hey there @spotzz,
Welcome to the Community! We're happy to shed some light into this.
We've tested the Apple Watch on our end, and can confirm that in order to synchronize new songs with a playlist, it's necessary to remove it, add the songs and then download it again on the watch.
If this is something you'd like to see implemented in the future, we'd recommend adding your vote and feedback to support this idea.
We always take new ideas and feedback into consideration to improve the app. Here you can read more on how ideas work.
Hope this helps.
