You've left your phone in the office but your Apple Watch is firmly strapped to your arm. Luckily you've downloaded the Shazam app and you'll never not know what that song is. Ever again.

Three things that will impress musos about the Apple Watch
- It'll help you stay in tune. Who needs a guitar tuner when you have your Apple Watch? The AMPLIFi Remote app acts as a remote app for your iPhone. Just plug your phone into your amp and you can tune your guitar using your Apple Watch. Are you sharp? Flat? Or is the note you're hitting in tune? Your Apple Watch will tell you.
- You can create your own music. The possibilities for music fans extend to creating their own music. The Pacemaker DJ works with your iPad app using the autopilot feature. You can skip tracks or use the app to help you choose your music. It's the ultimate companion for an up and coming DJ.
- It'll help you discover new music. Shazam has long been a staple amongst music fans. Hear a song you like? Tap your watch and your phone will listen to what's playing. Discover new music with your watch displaying the name of the song, the artist and the lyrics.
Why you will want to download the Shazam app
The Shazam app is one of the furthest developed music apps for the Apple Watch. It acts as a remote control for your iPhone, which does the listening, but you can still use your watch to enjoy the features of the app. Sing along to the lyrics once your phone recognises the song and have that 'ah' moment when you realise who the singer is. For the music-obsessed, it doesn't get much better than that.
For music enthusiasts, the Apple Watch is your new favourite listening buddy. Let it help you find new music or make your own.
