Apple Watch OS does support A2DP, and I can listen to both earbuds. However, whenever the headphones first connect it only works in the right earbud. I have to run through the steps outlined in my original post to get the second earbud to function.

I have a third generation Apple Watch and an iPhone XS, and I'm having isses with my SoundSport Free when connecting to the apple watch. When I first connect to the watch directly and try to listen to music, the music only comes out of the right earpiece. I've tried placing the headphones back in the dock and then removing them to restart, which drops the connection and then reconnects. But I run into the same issue. I've even tried restarting the watch, but that does not work either. After much trial and error, I've found the only way to get sound to come out of both earpieces is to the follow these steps: 1. Turn on the SoundSport Free headphones and automatically connect to Apple Watch, since that was the last device they connected to. 2. Tap the left earphone button to toggle the connection to my iPhone. 3. The headphones say they are connected to the iPhone, but the iPhone is not connected. 4. Toggle Bluetooth off and on again on the iPhone to connect to the headphones. 5. Play music on the iPhone, which seems to turn on the left earpiece, so now music is playing on both. 6. Tap the left earphone button to toggle the connection to my Apple Watch. 7. Start music playing on the Apple Watch, which now plays on both earpieces. I have to go through this every single time I want to listen to music directly from my Apple Watch, which is pretty ridiculous. I have made sure the headphones firmware is up to date, as is the OS on both of my Apple devices. Has anyone else encountered these issues? Any suggestions as to how to fix this issue?
