The Apple Watch is one of the best fitness trackers out there. Even if you’re not interested in Heath-related features, this wearable can still do a lot more than that. For example, if your iPhone runs out of battery, you can still use your Apple Watch independently to listen to Spotify or Apple Music. This makes the watch a perfect companion when you want to go out for jogging without having to carry your phone with you. You can use it to track your outdoor workouts and listen to music on the go. Now you might be thinking: How do I connect my earphones to this small screen? Well, whether you want to pair smaller Bluetooth earphones or larger speakers to your Apple Watch, the process is the same. Here are the steps you need to follow to turn Apple Watch into your personal DJ.
How to Pair Bluetooth Earphones to Apple Watch
- launch Adjustment app on your Apple Watch.
- Scroll down.
- click on Bluetooth section.
- Make sure bluetooth is actually on, obviously.
- Make sure your Bluetooth earphones or speakers are next to your Apple Watch and in pairing mode.
- The name of the Bluetooth earphone/speaker should appear in the list of available devices.
- Click on its name.
- Voila! Now you can launch the audio app of your choice on Apple Watch. It will then use the bluetooth device as the audio output.
The Apple Watch Series 7 enhances the winning formula with a bigger screen, faster charging, and better durability.
Personally, I always use this feature when my iPhone is running out of charge and I am on the go. This allows me to conserve my phone’s battery for tasks that the Apple Watch cannot perform. It’s also worth noting, that if you have AirPods, pairing them to your iPhone will automatically link them to your Apple Watch as well. So this method is only for pairing non-Apple Bluetooth earphones with Apple Watch. This also comes in handy if you want to leave your iPhone behind because your Apple Watch can handle both your music and fitness tracking needs without needing to carry it in your pocket.
