Downloading tunes to your wrist is the best and only way to listen without your paired smartphone nearby, with Huawei's App Gallery offering no support for third-party apps like Spotify, Apple Music, or others.
Below, we'll cover how to add music from the Huawei Health app to your watch, as well as the requirements for doing so.
Requirements for adding music
The process is pretty straightforward, but you will have to ensure that your paired phone has downloaded music ready to transfer across before beginning.
This doesn't include the music you have downloaded on streaming apps like Spotify - it's limited to saved MP3 files on the phone itself.
This feature is also exclusive to Huawei Watch GT 4 devices paired to an Android phone - the music player is not available when connected to an iPhone.
And though not technically a requirement, it's also worth noting how you can actually listen once you follow the steps below.
The Huawei Watch GT 4 has a built-in speaker, which means you'll be able to listen out loud, though it can also play through headphones if you pair them up with the watch.
How to add music to Huawei Watch GT 4
1. Open the Huawei Health app on Android and select 'Devices' from the bottom row.
2. From the 'Huawei Watch GT 4' tab, scroll down to 'Music'.
3. Next, tap the 'Manage music' option and then 'Add songs'.
4. The MP3 files available on your phone will then appear, at which point you can select the songs you wish to add by tapping on them.
5. When you're done, tap the tick icon in the top right corner and wait for the songs to transfer.
6. Move over to your Huawei Watch GT and open the watch's music app.
7. Tap the 'Songs' tab and choose one from the list of options.
8. The song should begin playing through the built-in speaker or any connected headphones.
Top tip: When the music app is open, control the volume with the Huawei Watch GT 4's crown.
