Garmin’s partnership with Spotify was announced back in October, with the popular music app available on two of its higher-end models, and runners celebrated being able to enjoy their music on the go without having to strap their phone to their arms. The inclusion of the Vivoactive 3 Music makes the music interface that much more accessible.

The partnership allows users to download and store playlists, sync their Garmin with their smartphone using Wifi, and listen to music via the Spotify app on the same gadget they use to track their mileage and pace. 

Vivoactive 3 users can download the Spotify app via the Connect IQ store in the Garmin Connects app.

Battery life in GPS mode with music is up to five hours, which should get you comfortably through your longer runs and races.

The Garmin Vivoactive 3 Music retails for $389.99 CDN.
