    I've read that the gear s2 can play milk music without a connection to a phone. I've read mixed stories of spotify.

    Spotify is my primary music source. I would like to go to the gym or out for a run without my phone and stream spotify with the gear s2 to a set of paired Bluetooth earbuds. Is this possible? I am a premium spotify subscriber and have the ability to save playlists for offline listening, in case that helps.

    Nope, don't know why but Spotify doesn't support Android Wear offline files. Google Play and Milk do, but not Spotify. The feature request in their forums has been up for over a year and it's still marked by Spotify as 'not right now'.

    Are you sure Google Play supports offline listening (streaming) on the S2 3G? I have not seen anything that indicates that it does. I have the non-3G version, but would buy the 3G version if I could leave my phone at home while exercising, but I need music and usually just download for offline listening rather than buying songs. I use Spotify, but if Google Play works I would try it.

    Not sure for the S2 as it's not Android Wear (it's Tizen). At least from AC's post on the S2 9 months ago, nope, GPM doesn't support offline listening to an S2.

    The only streaming service on the S2 in stand alone mode is Samsung Milk music for now.
    SpookDroid and Gdwheel like this.
