Quickly Changing Music Source on Apple Watch

IMG_6038.PNG

I often go for a run with just my Apple Watch and use Bluetooth headphones. The default on Apple Watch is for music to be played from your iPhone. But if you are going for a run without your iPhone and want music you need to play that music with your Apple Watch being the source. Up until recently I would have to force touch the Apple Watch screen and that would bring up the option to change sources. I'm not sure if my slower series zero Apple Watch is just sluggish or if I'm ham-fisted but more often than not my attempt to force touch would instead result in selecting something on the screen instead. But the other day I stumbled on to a more elegant option...

Select the music app on your Apple Watch and navigate to the top menu

Then swipe down from the top of the screen and it reveals the option to select the music source. Pretty much impossible to screw up...

Gattaca Soundtrack Music in iTunes

If you read my blog and have read my very first blog post, then you already know that I am a huge fan of the movie "Gattaca." Seriously, if you haven't seen this movie go rent or purchase it through iTunes or Amazon (you can thank me later). Not only is it an amazing movie but it also has an incredible soundtrack. Unfortunately, the soundtrack is not easy to find. If you are patient you can order it on Amazon (at the time I wrote this post the CD was on back order). But there is another option...some songs from the soundtrack are avaialble on iTunes. I did some digging and was able to find a few individual tracks on iTunes from the soundtrack. Some are piano solos of the original score and some are the actual full score from Michael Nyman (the original composer). If you have an Apple Music subscription then you will simply be able to listen to the songs below, otherwise you can purchase them individually. Enjoy...
