    Can you use the music app to listen to music via your bluetooth headphones and use the workout app at the same time?

    And if so then are there any issues with the workout app accuracy or general buggyness?

    I have done this several times without any problems. Much better than having the iPhone in the gym with me.:)

    I've done it, it works.

    Headphone cutout for 100s of milliseconds at a time about twice a minute, which never happens with armband and phone.

    I rarely do it as I rely Audible and Overcast too much.

    It works great with one caveat. There's a Bluetooth bug where if you are paired to the watch and leave the iPhone range, your headphones will cut out. The workaround is to turn off Bluetooth on your phone.

    When they fix that, it will be awesome because you could leave range and when you come back into it, all your notifications would come through [in theory].

    I have a problem. I have a Playlist on my AW and connected to my Sony MBR10BTs. It works fine but when i raise my wrist and activate the watch it automatically pauses the music...

    Is this a design fault? How am i meant to get onto the watch to look at stuff if it auto pauses the music when i raise my wrist!?
