Garmin has announced integration with Spotify, the world’s largest music streaming service, on compatible Garmin music watches. Garmin customers and Spotify Premium users with a fēnix 5 Plus series watch can now store audio, enabling users to download and listen to music offline without having to take a phone along.
This announcement is being made in conjunction with an exclusive media event this week in New York City on Wednesday 3rd October.
“Spotify is the most popular music streaming service in the world, and we are excited to collaborate with them to provide our customers with even more ways to listen to their songs whilst on the go,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin Vice President of Global Consumer Sales. “Whether you’re a rock, pop, classical or country music fan, with access to millions of tracks on Spotify, we know Garmin users will be able to find something that suits their mood.”
Spotify Premium account holders can create playlists including all their favourite tracks and then sync the playlists to their compatible Garmin music watch via WiFi. Users can then access their playlists through the Spotify app on their watch to start listening. New users can try out Premium at no cost at spoti.fi./offer (limited eligibility; terms & conditions apply).
The Spotify app is available now in the Connect IQ store for Garmin customers with a fēnix 5 Plus series watch, ‘Garmin’s popular multisport GPS smartwatch that’s built for athletes and adventures of all sizes.’
