    Hi everyone,

    First time poster so please be gentle!

    I finally succumbed and purchased the Apple watch today. The set up has been straight forward and was very intuitive. However, I am trying to sync a playlist to the watch (there is plenty of room as the Playlist is 200 songs and watch tells me i can have 250 so that isn't the issue). I go into the watch app on the phone and go on to music and select the playlist i want to sync, but all it is doing is saying that 'Sync Pending'.

    I wasn't sure if it was due to the watch not being sync'd with the itunes account, which i have now done but that hasnt helped.

    Anyone got any idea where I am going wrong.

    Thanks

    Put your watch on the charger while its syncing. I believe that's what you have to do. Same thing happened to me.

    Here are few steps to sync your music from iPhone to your apple watch:-


    1. Connect your Watch to its Magnetic Charging Cable.
    2. Go to Settings on your iPhone and then turn on Bluetooth.
    3. Launch the Apple Watch app on your iPhone.
    4. Tap on Music.
    5. Tap on Synced Playlist.
    6. Now, you need to tap on the playlist which you want to sync with your Apple Watch.
    7. You will see a message reading –Sync Pending. It means music is being synced.

    Now, you have to wait until the music is synced successfully.

    Is the benefit of having music directly on your watch, that you can (i) sync your BT headphones to pair with the watch (as opposed to pairing with the phone) and (ii) go out without your phone and listen to the music directly off of your watch?

    (I know that seems obvious, but I guess I never really thought about putting music directly on the watch because my BT headphones connect to my phone and while I have used the watch to control the music, I guess I never focussed on putting the music on the watch and connecting the headphones right to the watch)

    Yes, it is a benefit.

    (I know that seems obvious, but I guess I never really thought about putting music directly on the watch because my BT headphones connect to my phone and while I have used the watch to control the music, I guess I never focussed on putting the music on the watch and connecting the headphones right to the watch)
    That's okay. I put music on my Watch when I first got it and paired it with my Motorola Buds just to test it out, but I've long since removed that music from it. When I go on runs or speed walks, I zone out and focus on the task at hand and therefore, listening to music in that regard is not that important to me.

    Am i able to sync a playlist i saved off of apple music and is locally stored? i followed all of the other steps and have the watch connected to power and tried to sync overnight but it never took. Am i just not able to do this with apple music library or do i just need to keep fussing with it?

    and on a random side note as a person who buys a lot of music i love the playlists it creates for me for discovering new songs but i wish apple would allow me to bulk purchase the entire playlist and not go song by song.
