Workout playlist not an option for original Watch?

Asked: Oct 03 2017 | 8:09 am EDT 959 Views 1 Answers View Best Answer

There is supposed to be an option in the watch app on the iPhone to start a specific playlist automatically when you start a workout. I have an original Watch and the option does not show. I see the option for others that have newer Series 2 or 3 watches. Anyone else out there with a pre-Series 1 original Watch that has the same thing? I can’t imagine this would be a feature not available on older hardware.

This playlist automatically plays when you start a workout, unless you're already listening to something else. Workout playlists are available on Apple Watch Series 1 or later.
