Overcast app lets you send podcasts to Apple Watch

Superior iOS podcast app Overcast has issued a new 3.1 update, allowing users to send individual podcasts to their Apple Watch to listen to when they’re not in the immediate vicinity of their iPhone.

This is something that can’t be done with Apple’s official Podcasts app, even though users can send audio files from the iOS Music app.

If you’re someone who enjoys listening to podcasts, and who goes out jogging or does some other form of exercise that isn’t necessarily convenient to carry your iPhone, it’s an important update that’s going to be warmly received by users.

How to transfer podcasts to Apple Watch with Overcast

To access the feature, go to the Queue Menu on the iOS app, and then choose the “Send to Watch” option. Any pending transfers will appear on the Downloads screen. There’s the option to transfer several podcasts at once.

Overcast is available to download for free, although you can pay to remove ads and add additional minor features for a $9.99 subscription. (In the latest update, that subscription also adds an extra dark theme icon — if that’s something that’s likely to be important to you!)

Perfect gift for mom

Mom loves it. That’s all that matters!

Excellent quality, nicely made

As I said, excellent quality, very happy with the finish albeit just fits my wrist on the last hole. Obviously made for Asian wrists not big boofy Aussies!!!

Great band

As advertised

Old school

Gives the Apple Watch an “Old School” look, like I remember from some of my old watches. Good quality, easy to swap out.

Great band

I bought two of these, one for me and the other for my wife. It’s very high quality and comfortable. I’ve already gotten several compliments on it and told folks where they could get one. Terrific band at a terrific price!
