Garmin Singapore has announced integration with popular Swedish-based music streaming app Spotify on Garmin music-enabled watches. Presently, the latest Garmin Fenix 5 Plus watch is also able to store audio, allowing users to concentrate on their outdoors distraction-free without lugging your smartphone along. Other compatible models should be added in due course – the Garmin Forerunner 645 Music has already been Spotify-enabled in some markets.

With the Spotify application downloadable from the Garmin Connect IQ, Spotify Premium account holders are able to create multiple playlists for different activities, and then sync them to their compatible Garmin music watch when connected to Wi-Fi.

This is a significant update since Spotify is the world’s largest music streaming service. Bringing music to such a compact form, Garmin makes it even more enticing to leave your mobile devices behind on your workouts to fully focus on your wellbeing.

Though the Fenix 5 Plus is currently the only model available, speculation remains that the Forerunner 645 Music, followed by the Vivoactive 3 is next in line to receive this monumental update.
