Amazon Music listeners now have a new way to listen to music while they run. On Wednesday Garmin announced that it has teamed up with the retail giant to bring Amazon's music services to Garmin's smartwatches. It's a first for Amazon Music. 

Amazon Music subscribers with a compatible Garmin smartwatch will be able to download tracks for listening even without their phones. This includes Prime Music, which is bundled with Amazon's Prime offering and has over 2 million available songs, as well as Amazon's premium Music Unlimited service, which is a more traditional Spotify or Apple Music alternative with over 50 million songs. 

The Amazon Music app is available now in Garmin's Connect IQ store. You will need to have a Forerunner 245 Music, Forerunner 645 Music, Forerunner 945, Fenix 5 Plus series, Vivoactive 3 Music or MARQ series device to be able to download the free app.

Amazon is not the first service to be available on Garmin watches, however. The company already offers a Spotify app in its store that works with subscribers to Spotify Premium as well as Deezer for those with a Deezer Premium subscription.
