Spotty, the app that takes Spotify to your wrist through the Apple Watch
Spotty is an amazing app that works with all models of Apple Watch , both first - generation and current Series 1 and Series 2. In the following video you can see a small demonstration of Spotty.
Obviously the first thing you have to do is download Spotty on your iPhone through the App Store. Once done and matching the Apple Watch with the smartphone you should open Spotty and give him permission to use his Premium account of Spotify.

Now you must decide what you want to display on the Apple Watch, and you can choose which lists and albums your Spotify want to synchronize in Spotty to listen offline later from the watch.
Synchronization is a two-part process. On the one hand, once you move the switch to activate the sync songs from the album or playlist are cached and processed by Spotty . Subsequently, after a song is processed, it is transferred through the Bluetooth connection to Apple Watch.
Once the synchronization process is complete you will be prompted to launch the Spotty application on Apple Watch to confirm that all songs have been successfully transferred.Spotty not need many requirements beyond a login to Spotify Premium valid for at least 30 days to keep synchronized playlists on the Apple Watch.
Another feature of Spotty is that it offers the ability to sync music to normal, high or extreme quality . Of course, depending on the quality you will have to wait more or less at the time of transferring the music to your Apple Watch through Bluetooth.
Once the synchronization of the lists and albums of Spotify is finished you can put your Apple Watch in offline mode through a switch within the Spotty app. So you can listen to all your music offline and synchronized without having the iPhone near you , so it is perfect to go out and do sports, for example.

Finally there is the offline mode workout , a mode for offline which handles audio Spotty training, gestures are enabled and training is tracked automatically . This mode promises up to 3 hours of battery life at full charge.
The Spotty app on iPhone has a configuration button located in the upper right corner of the screen where you can modify several things to your liking. In addition, you can select the type of training in which you will work and this will be recorded correctly on your Health app .
