01/12/18 @ 03:54 PM


Connect IQ 2.4.2 is here, with support for the Forerunner® 645 and Forerunner 645M. The Forerunner 645 is the most advanced running watch Garmin has made, featuring advanced running dynamics, Garmin Pay™, and an attractive slim form factor. The Forerunner 645M is our first wearable that lets you download music to the watch, and connects with Bluetooth® headphones (sold separately) for phone-free listening. Leave the phone at home!

In addition to letting you listen to your own music, the Forerunner 645M introduces the fifth Connect IQ app type: the audio content provider. Audio content providers act as plug-ins to the media player, and are allowed to download content to the device over Wi-Fi, serve content to the media playback system, as well as present user interface controls on the wearable for configuration and control. This represents a giant leap for Connect IQ .

Our music SDK is still under development, and is not included with Connect IQ 2.4.2. If you are interested in creating a Connect IQ media apps, please contact the Connect IQ developer program and let us know, or register for the Connect IQ Summit in April.
