Part 1. Can You Use Audible on Galaxy Watch?
Unfortunately, no. But there is good news. At the Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 launch event in July 2023, Samsung and Google announced that Audible would be coming to Wear OS. You should then be able to access your Audible audiobook library and control playback during your jog without having to take out your phone. However, since the Audible Samsung Watch app doesn't have an exact release date yet, you'll still need to use other ways to listen to Audible books on your Samsung Watch.
You can try transferring Audible downloads to your Samsung Watch. But there is one thing you need to pay attention to. As you may already know, audiobooks downloaded from Audible are encoded in AA/AAX format and you cannot move them to other unauthorized devices.

Then, you can easily transfer the converted audiobooks to Samsung Watch and listen to them with other music players. During this process, we recommend you use the DRmare Audible Converter. The following are the audio formats supported by Galaxy Watch and DRmare Audible Converter.
