Deezer is now available on a bunch of Garmin watches

Onboard music support rolls out to six models

Garmin’s been promising Deezer music support on its wearables for a long while now. Finally, it’s here.

The streaming service is now live and working with six Garmin wearables: The Vivoactive 3 Music, Forerunner 645 Music, Fenix 5 Plus series and D2 Delta series.

If you’re a Deezer subscriber you’ll be able to store more than 100 tracks on your watch for playing offline, as well as sync playlists and make use of Deezer’s Flow service.

Everything is synced to the watch so you can head out for a run without your phone and still have your music with you. You’ll just need to pair some Bluetooth headphones to the watch.

Up until now, users in the US have only been able to use iHeartRadio as a music provider, while those in the UK have been left without any options beyond the built-in music storage on some of these devices. With Deezer here, Brits finally have another option. In an ideal world we'd have Spotify, but Samsung has that relationship on lockdown.

Deezer is also offered as a service on the Fitbit Ionic and Versa, where users can similarly download their music to the smartwatch.

Deezer is available for both UK and US users for $9.99 a month, but if you’re in the States there’s a three-month free trial to take advantage of. You can find Deezer by heading to the Garmin IQ store on the smartphone app and searching for it.
