There are tons of smartwatches available under Rs 5000 in India. Most of them have features like AMOLED, Bluetooth calling, and even voice assistants. But, very few smartwatches can play phone music on the watch itself. Interestingly, we have found a feature in the Boat Watch Primia that can play any songs and sounds running on your phone. Here’s how to use the Boat Watch Primia as a Bluetooth speaker to play music.

Use Boat Watch Primia As Bluetooth Speaker
While not an official feature, we have figured out a way to play any song on the Boat Watch Primia. Follow the steps mentioned in the article below to use it as a Bluetooth speaker.
Make Boat Watch Primia a Bluetooth Speaker
To make the Boat Watch Primia usable as a Bluetooth speaker, follow the things mentioned below:
Step 1: Set up and enable Bluetooth calling on the Boat Watch Primia using this article.
Step 2: Keep the watch connected to your phone via Bluetooth.
Now, you have to enable phone linking on the watch to share all the audio from your phone to the watch, as shown below:
Step 1: Swipe down on the home screen of the watch.
Step 2: Click on the phone linking icon at the top left corner and enable it.
The Boat Watch Primia is now connected to your phone as a Bluetooth speaker.
Play Music on Boat Watch Primia
After doing the above steps, you can select any music on your phone from any app, and the watch will play it. We have tried it using Gaana, JioSaavn, Spotify, and YouTube. Yes, you can play YouTube videos on your phone, and the sound will come out on the watch.
It is quite interesting to see that your watch actually turned into a Bluetooth speaker. But you might be wondering how it is possible and how it is working? Well, let me explain to you the working of this thing.
How Does it Work?
As mentioned above, it is not an official feature and hence, not advertised or marketed by the brand. But since the Boat Watch Primia comes with Bluetooth calling, it has a built-in speaker and microphone. The Bluetooth calling works only when you turn on the phone linking to the watch. And once enabled, it not only sends the call sound but instead passes the whole system sound of your phone to the watch.
Any sound from your phone, be it the lock sound, tap sound, music playing on the phone, or any video sound, gets passed on to the watch and plays out from its speaker. And this is how you can use the Boat Watch Primia as a Bluetooth speaker.
As of today, this trick is working fine on Boat Watch Primia, but the brand may roll out an update to fix the bug, which can break the music playback. Also, note that playing music from the watch’s speaker will cause increased battery drain.
This was all about how you can use Boat Watch Primia as a Bluetooth speaker for your smartphone. However, it seems more of a bug for now.
