How to Play Tidal on Garmin Watch

Nowadays, more and more wearables have sprung up. Among them, the Garmin watch is the one you can not ignore. It is a sophisticated smartwatch that provides insightful data and analysis of your fitness and health conditions. If you are an audiophile and want to play Tidal on a Garmin watch, this post is prepared for you.
There are some smartwatches that allow you to play Tidal music directly on them. But it is a pity that Garmin does not have an official integration with Tidal. Luckily, the AudBite Tidal Music Converter can smartly remove the DRM protection of the song you like and download it as a normal audio file in diverse formats, like MP3. After that, you can upload the music files to your Garmin Watch.

Step 1. Add music from Tidal to AudBite software

Double-click the icon of AudBite software on your desktop to open it. At the same time, the Tidal app will be opened automatically. Then, you can log in to your Tidal account and go to My Collection . Find the song you want to get locally and drag it to the interface of the AudBite software. The alternative method is to copy its link and paste it into the search bar. Then, click the add icon. Both these 2 methods can add this song to AudBite software successfully.

Step 2. Change the output settings for playing on the Garmin watch

To make the downloaded music files compatible with your Garmin watch, you’d better reset the output settings. Just click the menu icon, then enter the Preferences > Convert section. Here you should set one output format that is supported by Garmin. The AudBite software also allows you to change other parameters like channel, bit rate, and sample rate to enhance your music experience.

Step 3. Download Tidal music for Garmin watch

Now everything is ready. You can click the Convert button to initiate the downloading and conversion process. Just wait for a while patiently, and then click the Converted icon to get all the downloaded music files on your computer. All the files can be saved on your computer for a lifelong time. What’s more, whenever you want, you can transfer them to other devices and apps for offline listening.

Step 4. Transfer music to the Garmin watch

  1. Download the Garmin Express app on your desktop and launch it.

  2. Then, use one suitable USB cable to connect your Garmin watch and the computer.

  3. Go back to the Garmin Express app and click Add a Device . So, the app can detect and link your watch.

  4. Next, select the Music tab and you can see all the music files on your computer.

  5. Choose the playlists or songs you want to listen to on your Garmin watch. Then, you should click the Send to Device button.

  6. Once finished, you are able to go to the My Music section on your watch and enjoy the downloaded Tidal music via headphones.
