[Partnership] Support for Garmin running watches

I love music when I'm running, but I do not always want to carry my phone.

Garmin introduced a new running watch that let's you download music for on the go, if Spotify whould support this that whould make a ideal combination.

 

UPDATE:

Thank you Spotify for adding Garmin watches to your platform. Hopefully you will soon add the Forerunner 645 and Vivoactive 3 as well. It's going to be great, listening to your motivating playlists without having to take my phone with me.

I am switching to Deezer if they dont add Spotify soon. Garmin just launch FENIX 5 PLUS with music so there will be bunch like me.

Deezer already has that partnership.

I give Spotify 2 months to offer that feature before I move my family premium account. Def a dealbreaker for me.

If Spotify supports Garmin watches, that would make me going back to your paid service from Deezer!

Can I vote twice? This is a no brainer and an absolute game changer. Will for sure be the defining factor on the next watch I buy.

This would be great. Otherwise I’ll have to cancel my premium account and use one of the other streaming services that’s available for my Garmin. Don’t want to but refuse to carry my phone around while working out when I no longer need to.
