Apple watches are great for listening to music, whether you are working out, sitting at home, or riding on the train. Here are the steps to follow so you can listen to your music or podcasts anywhere on the go.

  1. If you’ve already paired your Bluetooth headphones to your iPhone, then they will already be paired with your Apple Watch. All you need to do is press play!

If that is not the case, please use the following steps:

  1. The first thing you need to do is put your Bluetooth headset, headphones, or earphones in pairing mode. There are many ways to do this, depending on which brand or model you own. But for most of them, including AirPods, you are required to hold down the power button for five to twelve seconds until the front of the case starts to flash. If this does not work for your headset, please refer to the instruction manual of your Bluetooth device for details.
