    I had thought that the watch, once you copy music over from your iPhone, can pair with bluetooth wireless headphones, so that you can then play music from the watch to the headphone? I paired the QC35 with my iPhone 6s+, iPad Pro, and even my iMac, but, cannot pair my watch.

    Does the watch just not work with wireless headphones?

    I had the same issue. For the life of me I can't remember what I did to finally get mine to work, but they do.


    I believe I ended up being able to get them to be recognized by selecting the watch as the source, and putting the BT headphones into discovery..... It finally linked up.

    That's exactly what I did and paired to my new Bose QC35's

    Best headphones I have ever used.

    I will agree. I got these new Bose headphones last week and they retired the Beats Studio Wireless headphones for sure. Absolutely the best headphones I have worn. The noise cancellation is far superior to the beats. I have a large diesel Toro mower and a good bit of lawn to mow and the new Bose Q35 reduce the noise down to just a pure.

    I use my Watch with my Plantronics Backbeat Fits when I run. They work great because they allow me to hear my music while still being aware of my surroundings.

    The volume on the Watch is not loud enough to listen to music without a headset, so wireless is your only option. Take a look in the accessory forum for many posts on using BT headsets with your Watch.
