How do I sync an audiobook to my Apple Watch so that I can listen without my iPhone?

To sync an audiobook to your Apple Watch:

  • Open the app on your iPhone
  • Find the book you want to sync
  • Tap “Sync to Watch”

Due to the varying lengths of each audiobook, it may take 30 minutes or more for an audiobook to fully sync to your Apple Watch. Here are our team’s recommendations to ensure the sync happens as efficiently as possible:

  • Disconnect from BlueTooth on iPhone and Apple Watch in order to use WiFi to complete the sync
  • Keep your Apple Watch app on its charger during syncing.
  • Keep your iPhone awake, with the app in the foreground, during the sync
