Is there a way to use the Pandora app on the watch to listen through bluetooth headphones without your phone? I know you can do it with the Apple music app but I don't see any options in Pandora.

When I turn off BT and WiFi on my phone, using the Music app, I can only play music stored on my Watch, from a synced playlist. I can't stream any music to the Watch from my iCloud. I haven't used Pandora, but since it needs an internet connection, I'd assume (dangerous) that it won't play without your phone connected.

I was hoping that since the Watch can connect to iCloud over a trusted network (pull up Control Center and you'd see the iCloud icon in place of the iPhone icon) I could stream music directly to the Watch. But it doesn't look possible at this time.
