    I tested the Watch 2 days ago. Was not impressed. Couldn't figure out to load music onto the internal memory.

    Unwieldy.

    Uhmmm it's a watch, not an MP3 player. But to answer your question, the latest iOS update includes the Apple Watch app that will serve as a gateway to sync apps and music

    Pretty sure you can't load music onto it. It only controls the music you have on your phone.

    not sure about that, this is listed on apples website in the apple watch built in apps section:


    Play
    Music

    Control the music on your iPhone. Or leave your iPhone at home and listen to your favourite synced playlist right from Apple Watch using wireless Bluetooth headphones.

    The demo model is not connected to a phone so it's impossible to load music onto it.

    Forgive me, but why? Why post this here?

    I mean, tell you friends, and loved ones all about it.

    But we are waiting here and don't need this, thank you very much :D

    Huh thats pretty cool then. Then again, it will prob all be controlled from the Apple Watch app on the phone, so I'm assuming thats where you can sync your playlist

    This is something you would say to a friend and possibly you can both sort it out, kind of pointless here

    The lack of a 3.5mm jack doesn't help the Watch either for portable music listening :(.

    Looks like the iPod shuffle will have to live a lot longer now.

    you really want a cord running to your wrist to listen to music? That would be the most annoying thing I can think of.

    You apparently never tried the 6th gen nano with a wrist band. It's unweildly trying to keep a cable running to your wrist for ear buds.

    I totally understand why they didn't even bother with that.

    You can put 2gb of music on it the same way you put music on your phone , using iTunes & your computer

    Edit :

    I'm not sure how you connect the Apple watch to the computer ?

    the iwatch has 8GB of flash memory and 2GB is user enabled for music. You can easily load up a 1000 songs on the watch. Or 500 songs at better quality.

    It is - I tried with the 6th gen nano and a Lunatik Lynk band. It's a PITA. Cool concept, execution only was feasible in winter with the cord running up your sleeve.

    Or for me, with everything in  lossless, 10 songs lol

    Bluetooth headphones do not deliver the same music/sound quality as my Grado or Sennheiser headphones. For audiophiles, not very useful :(.

    ----------

    No Lightning connector. Songs are loaded via an iPhone!?!

    Not very fun :( or convenient.

    watch not intended to be an iPod. If that's your only gripe then I agree it is misplaced. I'm unimpressed also but for reasons that have to do with the device's intended uses.

    I find it absolutely astonishing that anyone with the right mind would even dream of having a wire from his wrist to his ears while doing daily stuff, like working, running, carrying shopping and millions of other stuff people do with their hands!!!

    Did anyone really think you'd really have to plug into iTunes? It's not even possible.

    You will be able to add and remove songs on the  Watch no matter where you are using your iPhone. You will not have to be sat in front of your computer.

    Sounds much more convenient to me.

    75% of the reason I'm getting this watch is to load music on it and use my Bluetooth headphones in the gym so I can leave my phone in the car. By far the number one feature for me.

    Or you could just use the beats app?

    ----------

    That is a top feature for me as well. I have parot Zik headphones.

    As long as your phone is not out of range.
