Music and Your Watch

Select tracks on your phone to play on your watch

It's time to experience the freedom of a wireless, phoneless, and practically weightless workout! All you need to do is transfer music to your watch and then play it right from your wrist. You can also stream music from Spotify. Free yourself from your phone bouncing around in your pocket as you jog.

Available screens and settings may vary by provider, phone, or watch.

Control the Music Player

Get pumped up at the gym by playing music straight from your watch. You can control the music that's playing directly through your watch or through your phone.

Here are the different controls of the music player: 

  • Volume Control: Set the volume level.

  • Previous Track or Restart: Go back to the previous track or restart the current song.

  • Play or Pause: Start or pause the track that is playing.

  • Switch Device: Alternate between your phone or watch's playlist.

  • Next Track: Skip to the next track.

  • Open app: Open the Music app.

Use Gear Music Manager on iOS Devices

If you have an iOS device, you can still enjoy tunes on your watch. As long as you have at least an iPhone® 6 with iOS version 12, you can use the Gear Music manager on your Galaxy Watch or Gear Sport, S3, S2, and Fit2 Pro when connected to iOS.

First, make sure your computer and watch are connected to the same Wi-Fi network. On the watch, open the Music app. If you see a phone icon, touch it to change the music source to the watch. Swipe up on the Now playing screen, touch Music Manager at the bottom of the Library, and then touch START on the watch. Next, open a web browser on your computer, and navigate to the IP address shown on your watch. Confirm the connection to your watch, and then you'll be able to manage your watch's music library from the browser. You'll also see instructions on how to transfer music from your iOS device to the watch, so you can have all your favorite songs right where you want them.

Note: Although the watch must be connected to a phone, the Music Manager app is available on the computer.
