    say your at the gym and outside bluetooth distance can you enable a tether to get the phone to connect to the phone to use to stream music?

    The watch has both bluetooth and wifi. If your phone and watch are on the same wifi network, the watch will utilize that (when bluetooth isn't available due to range limitations) for communications.

    There is no way to directly connect to a wifi network on the watch, it seems to just share credentials with your iPhone. So my guess would be that this won't work.
