Is there an easy way to change the song during a workout?

    I feel like a simple swipe and tap should do it, but I'm having to exit the workout app and go to glances. Is there a better way?

    Do your headphones have a control to skip to the next song? That's still the easiest way, BT with watch or wired with iPhone, because you can do it without looking at anything.

    Any way you can set your playlist on shuffle?

    It's still a bit involved but you can do this:

    At the beginning of your workout start the Music app
    Go to the workout app and start your workout
    When you want to switch tracks, double click the crown, click next track, double click the crown to go back to the workout app

    Actually that's workable. Not perfect, but way better than my method. Unfortunately it won't work with spotify, but I'll be giving apple music a try next week anyway.

    Hope Apple gives us something similar to the iPhone at some point where you can just swipe up for music controls from any screen.
