Smartwatches that can stream Spotify

I want to purchase a smartwatche with Spotify streaming support, any suggestions? It’s a little bit annoying having to download all of your music and podcasts.

Spotify is a music streaming service, but its integration with smartwatches is (for now) not quite the same. On most smartwatches, you need to download music and podcasts to your watch. This means adding and removing new playlists every time you want to "refresh". It's a very simple process, but it takes time.

Luckily, now there are many smartwatches support Spotify streaming.

Apple Watch

With support for standalone streaming, users can listen to Spotify music or podcasts via a Wi-Fi connection or over cellular, without needing to be tethered to their iPhone. Once Spotify is installed on your watch, you can launch it at any time by tapping the app's icon on your Apple Watch's home screen. In addition, playing music from the Spotify app on your iPhone will usually auto-launch it on your Watch.

Samsung Galaxy Watch and Samsung Gear S3 Frontier

The Galaxy Watch is the perfect choice for fitness activities as well as listening to your music throughout the day. Spotify on a Galaxy watch can be easily downloaded and is simple to access so that you don’t have to fuss around to find it. Samsung Galaxy Watch SIM card enabled version allows you to stream Spotify music using 3G and 4G data.

The Samsung Galaxy Watch is the smartwatch to choose if you want to stream music. It’s an awesome watch in general and much more than just a fitness tracker that plays music.

Smartwatches Running Wear OS

Spotify's updated Wear OS app will let you stream and download music straight to your watch, so you can listen to it without the need for a smartphone or even a connection.

Spotify announced on AUGUST 11, 2021 that in the coming weeks, Spotify users will be able to play their favorite playlists, albums, and podcasts with their smartwatches that run Wear OS 2.0 or higher . With this new feature, Premium users will be able to download their favorite albums, playlists, and podcasts to listen offline. Free users will be able to stream their tunes in Shuffle Mode using a WiFi or cellular connection, as well as download any of their favorite podcasts directly to the watch. Look out for Spotify on smartwatches running offline Wear OS from the likes of Fossil, Mobvoi, and Suunto rolling out over the coming weeks.

Once you have the latest app on your Wear OS watch, you'll need to have headphones paired directly to your watch. From there, you can stream music, playlists and podcasts directly with no need for a phone. You can also choose content to download directly to your watch, and once that's done, you'll see a green arrow next to the items.

While Spotify streaming on smartwatch sounds really cool, it does significantly drain the battery when you are using 3G and 4G data. Until smartwatch battery life improves, I prefer the offline playback. There are some smartwatches support Spotify offline playback, check the list.

Whether your smartwatch is compatible with Spotify app or not, as long as it has music storage, you can offline play Spotify songs on your smartwatch with below method.
