    It's taken me over 2 hours to sync just 47 songs and it's still going.... says "Sync Pending...." Not sure why.

    And it started from the beginning when I knocked the power adapter.

    Does it tell you to stand up each time it syncs 24 songs? :confused:

    Nope. I'm 50 stone and turned that off as I don't want to overuse my bed crane. #

    So I have 10,000 songs on my phone. There's no way my watch will hold all that...what is it syncing? Playlists? I don't want music on my watch.

    If you were really old school, you'd be using this - (the hipsters will be all over this)

    You can skip it. I have no music or photos and at the moment do not plan to have any. My music is Spotify and I have verified you can control the songs (skip, pause, volume) with the now playing glance so I'm good.

    Are you on wifi? I'm guessing that would make it faster it's a little nuts if they force it all through Bluetooth

    Check your Wi-Fi strength in the house where your WATCH is, along with your iPhone. Mine took about 10 minutes to do about 1GB or 125 songs.
