How to play Apple Music on Garmin Smartwatch?
A total of four music streaming services are compatible with Garmin watches: Spotify, Amazon Music, Deezer, and iHeartRadio. However, Apple Music is not on the list. Although Garmin watches allows you to upload you own local music files for listening on the go, the Apple Music songs you downloaded are not supported since they are DRM protected. However, if you can download Apple Music songs to mp3, you can then upload them to Garmin watches.
What Audio File Types Do Garmin Music Watches Support?
Music compatible fitness watches support several common media file types, such as mp3 (standard music format), m4a, wav and m4b (audiobooks), and can store up to 500 files if memory allows.
NOTE: Protected AAC audio files cannot be transferred to a watch without removing the DRM (Digital Rights Management) designation from the file.
Apple Music songs are DRM protected. If you want to transfer them to Garmin Watches, you need to remove DRM first.
