Loading podcast on Spark 3

How do I load a podcast, in mp3 format, to my spark 3? I can load a playlist from iTunes easy enough, but cannot figure out how to load a podcast. Thank you.

    It is done the same way. Put the podcast into a playlist and load it. I downloaded them through iTunes and add them to a playlist and they load no problem.

    I hope this helped answer your question. If so, please mark it as a solution so others can look for it if they have the same question.

    Thanks. When i plug my watch into my computer and it finishes syncing, i click on the music icon where it then lists available playlists to download and indicates how much storage is left on my watch. The playlist with the podcast is not listed as one available to download to my watch. The only playlists that it shows as available to download to my watch are music playlists. I also downloaded the podcast to the music playlist in iTunes that i had on my tomtom and reloaded it to my watch with the podcast, and the watch would not recognize the podcast, but did recognize the music. Any thoughts? Thank you.

    This is the list i get that is available to download...


    These are the playlists that i have in itunes. Notice the bottom one I called tomtom pc (podcasts) It doesn't show up in the list above as being available to download to my watch.

    Are the files in the playlist DRM protected and are they physically on your hard drive? From iTunes you can add items to a playlist but they are set to stream. You need to download them and they cannot be DRM protected.

    They are on my hard drive as all of them are music i downloaded into iTunes from CDs. With the exception of the podcast. Reading about DRM, i would think they would be DRM protected; however, they all play on my watch as part of the playlist i created in iTunes.

    Same problem. I see all my playlists show as available to add to watch. My podcast playlist does not appear as available to add to watch.

    You can remove the playlists from the watch and drag and drop the podcast on the watch itself ( as a USB stick) without using MySport. Then Play all the music on the watch. It should work this "tricky" way.
