Brett’s iTip: Normally I play all my music from my iPhone and use my Apple Watch to simply control the music, but I recently stumbled on this clever tip that lets me load music locally on to my Apple Watch and play it directly from there! I originally had “Recent Music” toggled on and the storage space on my Apple Watch was full - but then just added the albums I really wanted. This seems to only work with Apple Music (although I don’t believe you have to be a subscriber, just have the music stored in the Music app). Also note that the music won’t actually be transferred until the Apple Watch is being charged.   

Jeff’s iTip: Turn on Sounds on the Apple Watch. I usually have my Apple Watch muted throughout the day just because I don’t want to annoy people around me with extra noises and alerts. But recently I tried the new WatchTube app for my Apple Watch and couldn’t hear the audio until I swiped up on Watch to reveal the Control Center and turned un-muted the audio.
