    Can the new Apple Watch 3 with LTE stream music with any programs except Apple Music? Is it possible to download Pandora or Spotify onto the watch and stream from those to bluetooth headphones? That would be free and I already use Pandora, as opposed to paying monthly for Apple Music and not already using it.
    Thanks!

    There's a Pandora Watch app, or more correctly a Pandora app with Watch app. Whether or not it will stream from cellular like it does from the phone remains to be seen. Or heard.

    From what Apple has said, I would say no -- they stress that Apple Music will work with the Series 3 LTE watches. The question is if they are saying that to push Apple Music or because only Apple Music can stream through LTE on the watch.

    OTOH, they've also stated that all your apps are supposed to be available on the watch to use. I'm skeptical of this claim, I suspect it is only those apps that are made for the watch will actually end up working. In that case, it would, as someone else suggested, depend on if Pandora has the streaming capability on their Watch app.

    I'll be interested on what the actual answer ends up being.

    Remember its a closed product community so Apple wants users to buy into the music service and will not likely allow others to use it. This is why I am going back to the Music Match and storing my 300GB of music in the cloud so I can free up space on my 16TB NAS and have my music stream on my iphone, ipad, or watch if I want.

    Someone on Reddit claims that they asked Pandora and they responded saying it is a feature that is coming.
