Just downloaded latest update and streaming music without phone. Hitting the gym tomorrow so that will be the test of stability but sounding good so far. Of course just paid for a year of Apple Music to stream but great to have a choice.

I have the free account. Read somewhere that said it had to be premium but playing now on ad version. If it works in the gym I’ll buy premium but pretty impressive if you can stream the ad version gratis.

First time at the gym and it worked great. Put phone on airplane mode, started pandora on watch and as soon as cellular connected in the gym, I had music and station choices. Interestingly battery life better with Pandora vs. apple music. Typically 1 hour workout took 20% religiously. I was at 15% today and did a little longer, so that's encouraging. Also odd is that it's a free account and no ads played over an hours' time.

I do like the song selections better on Pandora v. Apple Music so really happy to have this option. Now if spotify would get off their behinds and do the same that would be amazing but not holding breath on that one.

Used it again tonight and it was perfect. Station I wanted, didn’t hesitate once cell connected and battery use again lower than Apple Music for an hour. Weird but no ads again but get them often when streaming on my laptop. No complaints with that.
