If you happen to own a Garmin Vivoactive 3 Music, you’re in luck — Spotify support is rolling out today!

Up until now, Vivoactive 3 Music owners have only been able to locally load up music, or download playlists through iHeartRadio or Deezer. Now one of the world’s most popular music services is coming to the smartwatch.

Vivoactive 3 Music owners who also subscribe to Spotify Premium can now download audio from Spotify to their watches for offline listening on the go. The process is pretty simple — just create a Spotify playlist of your choice and sync it with your Vivoactive 3 Music over Wi-Fi. Then, simply navigate to Spotify on your watch and start listening.

The Spotify app for the Vivoactive 3 Music should be live on the Connect IQ store now. Again, you’ll have to be a Spotify Premium subscriber to use this feature. You can try Spotify Premium at this link.

Last year, the Garmin Forerunner 645 Music and Fenix 5 Plus series gained Spotify support. This is an important update for the Vivoactive 3 Music. Non-Wear OS and Apple Watch devices are notoriously lacking in third-party app support, and the addition of Spotify is certainly a welcome one.
