Before going any further, make sure that you are a Spotify Premium member as the functionality is limited to Premium subscription members only. Users of the free version will still see the download button, but it won’t do anything.
Step 1: Open the Spotify app on your smartwatch. Make sure your watch and the app are already paired with your phone.
2nd step: When the Spotify app opens, swipe left on your smartwatch screen to access the menu page.
Step 3: Now from the list choose a playlist or album that you want to download.

That’s it. Once the process begins, it shouldn’t take a long time and the songs should be downloaded in a matter of minutes. But while the process is in progress, make sure you do not disconnect your watch from the smartphone or the internet, otherwise the song downloading process will stop.
Also, it should be noted that at present, Spotify does not allow users to play the downloaded songs through the speaker of the smart watch. Songs downloaded for offline use on your watch should be played through connected headphones.
