Spotify Premium subscribers can travel with their favorite music offline and away from their iPhones. The Apple Watch can download up to 100 songs per playlist for offline listening directly from the Apple Watch. AirPods or Bluetooth headphones can be connected directly to Apple Watch, taking the paired iPhone out of the loop completely.
The Spotify app on Apple Watch has a long list of features. While the app can be used to remote control playback on iPhone, it can also stream music directly and play downloaded tracks offline.
Apple Watch can play audio directly to Bluetooth headphones, including AirPods. Once connected, any sounds played on Apple Watch such as streaming audio or phone calls are sent directly to the headphones. This means the Apple Watch can be used with AirPods or other Bluetooth devices independently of its paired iPhone.

For those who like to calculate a gratuity before they drop cash at a restaurant or bar, there are plenty of app options including the stock Calculator app. Even simpler is the built-in Apple Watch tip calculator.
