You Can Now Download Spotify Playlists on Your Garmin Smartwatch

Offline running has never been more appealing.

When you can download music onto your smartwatch, it makes it easy to grab a pair of Bluetooth headphones and go out. No phone needed. But when your streaming service doesn’t match up to what the tracker can carry, it can be a bit of a boon to your everyday run. Garmin wants to change that with its Spotify integration. As the most popular music streaming service in the world, it’s a step in the right direction for Garmin users.

Before you break out in celebration, the caveat is that for now it only works on the Fenix 5 Plus series, and you’ll need a Spotify premium account. With both, you can download and access your favorite playlists on the watch offline. So if you have a Fenix 5 Plus or Fenix 5X Plus, you’re in luck. If not, you’ll have to stay tuned to see if Garmin rolls it out to more of its top-performing watches (like the Forerunner series which is extremely popular among runners). To get started, download the app in the Garmin IQ store.
