Being an Amazon Prime member isn’t just about the expedited shipping. Those on-board also have access to millions of songs and thousands of playlists and stations.

If you’re a subscriber to Amazon Music and own a music-enabled Garmin watch, from today you can download an app from the Garmin Connect IQ store that will connect the two. This will enable you to access streaming services and transfer songs to your watch for offline listening.

There’s a long list of Garmin devices that are compatible with the service. This includes the D2 Delta series, Forerunner 245 Music, Forerunner 645 Music, Forerunner 945, Fenix 5 Plus range, MARQ watches and the Vivoactive 3 Music.

Since the launch of the Forerunner 645 Music, Garmin has been steadily expanding it’s music service compatibility. Amazon Music has been slapped on to Deezer, Spotify and IheartRadio as services that work on music-enabled Garmin watches.

This makes Garmin the first wearable manufacturer to offer connectivity to Amazon Music, which comes with unlimited access to over 50 million songs and no ads. If you’re not already a member, the subscription will set you back $9.99 per month. The first month is free and if you don’t like it simply cancel before the 30 days are up and you won’t be charged.

We are expecting this list of compatible devices to lengthen in the coming days. Garmin has a whole bunch of wearables in the pipeline including the Vivoactive 4, Vivomove 3, a new smartwatch called Venu and the much anticipated Fenix 6.
