I love music when I'm running, but I do not always want to carry my phone.
Garmin introduced a new running watch that lets you download music for on the go, if Spotify would support this that would make an ideal combination.
Garmin makes some of the best fitness trackers and running watches, but it lagged behind competitors such as Fitbit and TomTom in one key area: Music.

This watch has storage with enough room for syncing over up to 500 songs from a computer or downloaded offline playlists from streaming music services like iHeart Radio and Deezer.
