    Pros: 

    Can select a different playlist from the watch.

    Cons: 

    Can't play offline or store any information offline.

    If Apple wasn't preventing Spotify from launching an app, why has this taken so long?!?!? If I could download a playlist for use offline or over LTE/Wifi that would make this the killer app.

  • Pros: 

    None

    Cons: 

    No LTE or offline playback on the watch

    You still need to run with your iPhone or have Apple Music on your Apple Watch if you want tunes while you run. This app does nothing more than Spotify Connect.

I switched to Apple Music a while back so I could listen to music while running and not need my phone. Apple Watch + Apple Music + AirPods = 🎉 I've been itching for a Spotify Apple Watch app so I could switch back, but alas, this doesn't seem to be more than a glorified remote ("future release will include support for listening to music and podcasts while offline"). 😞

@shpigford exactly, same here. Until the app will not support offline playing, need to use Apple music.

“Hit play from your Apple Watch without having to wrangle your phone out of its running case.” So the iPhone still needs to be carried... 😕 Edit: just saw this on PH, gonna try! https://www.producthunt.com/post...

@elado Apollo (linked in Elad's comment) is the offline playback and LTE streaming app everyone is looking for.
