Bought my Apple Watch to control my audiobooks in work and they have moved them from the music player! Is there any way to control iBooks with the watch?

I don't listen to audio books but wonder if this works like all other currently playing sources. Like Spotify, I start the music on the phone then have the option to control the playback on the watch. The music glance changes as the play source changes.

Got it working by unpairing the watch. Sorted.

I can control play / pause / volume using an apple watch but no longer have the skip / rewind 15s buttons or info on what's playing - title / time elapsed. Definitely liked the old system better.
