Gear S3 frontier/classic owners--music and navigation?


Senior member

Recently replaced my ancient Forerunner 205 with a Gear S3, primarily for marathon training. Two questions for folks that have/know about the Gear S3:

1) Anyone have an easier way to save music to the watch for a run without using spotify premium? Currently I'm using airdroid to push mp3 files to my phone, then sending to my watch. This is cumbersome as fuck when it comes to adding new tracks.

2) Are there any solutions for sending a route (either via a general navigation map or mapmyrun) from your computer/phone to your watch, and then executing that route without your phone? Doesn't seem like there are any offline map capabilities with the gear S3? Want to be able to program a long run and then leave the phone at home.
