The Paris-based company gives its 14 million users access to over 53 million tracks, making its music library one of the most extensive on the globe.
From this week, owners of the Garmin Vivoactive 3 Music, Forerunner 645 Music, Fenix 5 Plus series and the D2 Delta series will be able to stream their favorite tunes using Deezer. Up to now, the only subscription service available on Garmin watches was iHeart Radio.
Users will need to download the app to their watch via Garmin Connect, launch the app, select Deezer in the Music Providers section, connect via WiFi, create and log into their account. Once installed, the service will allow them to store more than 100 tracks on their watch, sync playlists, get a daily refresh of songs with Deezer Flow and choose from a variety of customized playlists.
Those in the US will also have the option of getting a free three month subscription to the Premium version of the service. This provides more songs and playlists, ad-free listening and more. After the three months are up they will be billed $9.99 per month, unless they unsubscribe.
“Music can be a big motivator during any workout or activity, and we’re excited to give our customers the ability to ditch their phones and listen to their favorite songs right from their wrist,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of global consumer sales.
Garmin users can download the Deezer app in the Garmin Connect IQ store.
