Apple Watch 6 Cellular
Watch OS 7.3.3
Spotify Premium UK
I bought an Apple Watch back in Sept 2020 to stream Spotify to my bluetooth headphone without my phone while at the gym. I started going to the gym on 12th April and the watch and Powerbeats Pro worked kind of ok. I would put my phone in my locker and walk to the gym, when out of Bluetooth range the headphone would cutout but I found if I changed the device to play from on my Spotify Apple Watch from phone and back again to watch or/and turned it on and off it would start playing without my phone present. I tried to fix this by unpairing watch and fresh install of iOS on phone and reload Spotify app. It now does not work at all without my phone in range. I cannot set the device to Apple Watch from Spotify on watch. It either freezes on ‘Connecting…’ or returns error ‘something went wrong’.
I only bought a cellular Apple Watch so I could stream Spotify to my headphones without my phone present so this is really frustrating especially when everybody (Apple & Spotify Info) said this would work before I bought the watch.
Spotify when are you going to sort this problem out or will you force me to switch to Apple Music?

I have just seen that Spotify have launched the ability to download music to the watch app so you do not need to stream on cellular to have your phone with you but I have updated my app and cannot find ‘Download to Apple Watch’ Please help Spotify!
