Customer Question

Hi Philip,Tap the back of your Galaxy phone to the back of the Gear charging cradle to pair the two together.Your music should then sync automatically.

I think you misunderstood my question. The problem is not getting music to the watch itself. I have transferred music to the watch. However, I have new music that I would like to add. After I add it to either the phones files or to my google music manager it does not show up in the Gear Manager app which is what is responsible for syncing the music to the watch.

If the new music is on your phone and you sync it with the watch again using the method I described, then it should automatically transfer.If it does not, then check that the watch is still paired with the phone.

the playlist first has to show up in the Samsung gear app in order to transfer. That's where my problem lies, I do not have an issue transferring what is in the app to the watch. My issue is getting music to show up in the Samsung gear app itself.Where do I have to upload the new playlist, in order for the Samsung gear app to recognize it?
