How to Sync Playlists from iPhone to Apple Watch

Agreed, Apple Watch can’t store tons of music as it has only 2GB of storage allotted for it. However, it’s just good enough to hold some of your all-time chartbusters. You can sync albums and playlists from iPhone to Apple Watch if you wish to give the smartwatch freedom to entertain you without the help of the paired iPhone. Let’s see how you can sync iPhone playlists to Apple Watch.
