You can use Spotify on a Galaxy Watch without a phone, but only if you have a premium account and Bluetooth headphones. Since the Spotify app isn’t designed to stream music through the watch’s built-in speaker, you must have paired Bluetooth earbuds to listen to music without your phone.

Select the device icon in the lower right corner.

Select your watch from the list of devices.

Your watch may not appear in the list of available devices. If not, close the player and try again.

Once the playlist or radio station is playing, you can skip songs and pause using the controls on your watch.

You can also swipe left and select a new radio station, playlist or song to play, and it will play on your watch.
