  1. I’ve heard that it won’t work with just the watch. You’ll have to have your phone nearby, as the Shazam app on the watch will use the microphone on the iPhone, not the watch.

      Yes and No. Certainly all third party apps depend on the iPhone nearby with a connection. But Shazam will use the microphone on the watch. I tested it out many times with my phone in the pocket and it can recognize the song correctly. You can give it a try
