When you’re sweating on the treadmill or taking a long walk in the park, you can listen to music without having to rely on the paired iPhone. Follow us to learn how to add your favorite playlists and albums to Apple Watch.

Interestingly, watchOS also lets you sync workout playlists. Just in case you like to listen to specific songs while you work out, you will really appreciate this nifty feature.
