Hi, 
I finally managed to sync iPhone app with Apple Watch. 
I have a question: the message “logs sent” appeared on my Apple Watch while I was touching the screen near volume and available time. 
Why my watch should send any logs? Who are the logs sent to? 
Thanks

Agreed, all remedies mentioned below have been tried and failed,
after the process the download disappears….

Hi,
Today was the first time I attempted to user the RP watch app. I am seeing the "No Playlist" message on the watch app. I have tried a few steps to troubleshoot the problem. Since I have never used it before then I don't really know how it is supposed to work. Usually I just stream from my phone but today I wanted to leave my phone indoors.
I cleared the downloaded caches on the iPhone app and created a new one of 1 hour, medium quality. I think that it is about 500M and the watch has about 5G available.
I turned off Bluetooth on the phone and both devices are on my WiFi.
As far as I can tell everything is up to date.
As long as there is a cached playlist in the phone app then should it automatically show up when I start the app on the watch?
Is it currently working for anyone else?
Thanks,
Tim




I followed the same steps as you and can't get a playlist to transfer to the apple watch no matter how small. It's a 32GB apple watch and most of that memory is unused. Disabled BT so wifi would be used. Not sure what else to do. I have unlimited data so it'd be nice if we could stream the main mix but I guess that's not an option.

I got a new apple watch 8 with cellular and have tried multiple times to get a playlist to transfer to the watch from my iPhone XR all on iOS 16.5. I have 26GB available memory on the watch and a small playlist won't transfer. I disabled bluetooth so it would use wifi as well. I have a strong network on a 200mbs connection. Not sure why it doesn't work.

I'm using the cached download to the apple watch.  In the last week, I've had several occasions where two RP tracks would play at the same time, skipping to the next song fixes it.

This has always been a bit finicky and is handled by the phone in a very low priority manner.

But there are some things you can try.

- start by trying to sync smaller blocks,  of a lower bitrate
- make sure both devices are fully charged
- if they are close enough to use bluetooth they will,  which can be very slow.   If you keep them far enough apart they'll use wifi to sync which can be a lot faster.

Hi, I have an Apple Watch 8. I’ve been using it since early September. RP’s app was on the watch since the beginning, but caching has never worked. I’ve tried to download different quality/duration playlists with the app on the smartphone, but the app on the watch simply doesn’t sync. All the OS and apps are updated. Any idea? 
Anyway, RP is the best radio ever

Thanks for posting this.  I'm having the same issue the past week or so and was going to drop a message on it.  I use the watch cache quite often when running and have been missing it.

This is an understatement. Watch app does nothing, at least on the latest os on latest watch.   But why would I want to play music from my watch, what we REALLY REALLY want and need is to control music on a phone from our wrist. tunein pro does this so it must be possible.  One can play RP on Tunein but not on lossless and with no skip.  RP control on watch would let us plug our phone direct to hifi system and control from the couch, or run with the phone tucked deep in our pants, which we Canadians need to do when the temperature dips to minus 100.  Big wish list item here!

The watch is temperamental... the actual song transfer can take anything from 5 minutes to 3 days in my tests. Unfortunately there is nothing I can do, the API are limited to “send data to watch” on phone and “got data from phone” on the watch. Whatever happens between is a black box. It works better/faster if the batteries are full and, once in a while, the phone needs a reset (like you did).
