How to listen to the radio on Apple Watch


You may not know that we have the option of listening to the radio in our Apple Watch Series 3 or later This is not really a function that most users use, but it is one of the many possibilities that we find on the device.

The radio that we can listen to on our watch or rather from our watch is Beats 1. Yes, we can listen to the stations of this Beats radio with the best radio programs in the world, the latest musical news and exclusive interviews (yes, in english).

The million dollar question, do you need a subscription?

Yes and no. When we want to enjoy all the content on Beats Radio, we are going to need an Apple Music plan since most of the stations specialized in this Radio are included in the subscription program. But we have the possibility to listen to the Beats radio without having to pay anything, This is done directly from Beats 1. The downside of this option is that we have to listen to what they put on this radio without the option to choose style, but this is something that usually happens in all radios so if you want you can. Logically all this in correct English.

Well, now that we know that we can listen to the radio from our watch as we do. For this we have to follow a few simple connection steps that we share right here:

  • We open the Radio app on the Apple Watch
  • We connect our AirPods or Bluetooth headphones
  • We turn the Digital Crown to move to the top of the screen and locate Beats 1 or the station we want
  • We will click on Stations and then on the Beats 1 program that broadcasts live and that's it

And if you are a user of an Apple Watch with a data connection, you can do without the iPhone to listen to the station live. To do this you simply have to have your data plan on the Apple Watch, go to the iPhone Settings> Music and press "Mobile data" to activate Transmission. In this way you can enjoy your favorite station without having an iPhone connected.

    Good David,

    no, the app is the Apple Watch's own, you don't have to download any app
