2 Simple Ways to Download Spotify Music to Apple Watch

Here are the two best ways you can use to download Spotify music to your Apple Watch.

The Apple Watch is a highly popular smartwatch that's adored by individuals who want to stay connected to their favorite music, podcasts, and audiobooks while on the go without having to carry their phones. Meanwhile, Spotify is among the most popular music streaming services, and it offers an app that can be installed on the Apple Watch. However, it's important to note that streaming music on the Apple Watch requires a stable internet connection, which may not always be available. Hence, downloading Spotify music to the Apple Watch is a useful solution to this problem. In this article, we will discuss the two best ways to download Spotify music to the Apple Watch – one with a Premium account and the other without a Premium account.

Part 1: Download Spotify Music to Apple Watch with Premium

Downloading music to the Apple Watch allows you to enjoy music without an internet connection. This also means you can leave your phone at home and go out with just your Apple Watch. With a Premium subscription, you can easily download Spotify music on the Apple Watch.

To download Spotify music to Apple Watch for offline listening, you will need the following:

  1. Install Spotify on your Apple Watch; have a Spotify Premium account.
  2. An Apple Watch Series 3 or later
  3. A stable internet connection (a Wi-Fi or cellular connection)
  4. Sufficient storage space on your Apple Watch

Here are simple steps to download Spotify music to Apple Watch:

Find the playlist or podcast you want to download on your Apple Watch.

Press the three dots (…) button located next to the playlist, or podcast.

Select "Download to Apple Watch."

Check the download progress by heading to the Downloads section on your watch.

Once the download is complete, you'll see a green arrow next to the names of the playlists, albums, or podcasts in your library.

Finally, connect your headphones to your Apple Watch and enjoy listening to your downloaded music or podcast, even without your phone or internet connection.

Note: #1: You can't download individual songs from Spotify (to download individual songs, you have to put them in a playlist and download the playlist); #2: The download limit for each playlist is up to 50 songs.

Part 2: Download Spotify Music to Apple Watch without Premium

If you don't have a Premium subscription to Spotify or want to get rid of Spotify download limits, you can still download Spotify music to your Apple Watch by turning to the help of the AudiFab Spotify Music Converter.

Moreover, the AudiFab program also supports keeping the original audio quality and keeps all the ID3 tags, including the title, artist, album, artwork, track number, disc number, and year.
