Extremely difficult to set up, then doesn’t even work

What a long drawn out affair ! I started using my Garmin 645 music on 5th March, brand new out of the box. A gift for the main purpose of playing Spotify whilst exercising. After realising this is one of the worst tech setup processes known to man, I went in for help, searched and found a useful 'how to' site for installing Spotify (top response is from wareable . com). It took a while, after figuring out the brand new phone needed to be updated with current firmware for Spotify. The best way to do this is on a laptop by downloading Garmin Express to your laptop, then plugging the watch in and pressing 'Sync' but then disconnect the watch from the laptop - so it actually updates the watch (!). I then installed Spotify to the Garmin App. You need to log into your account and then you see your playlists come up in the watch. After this is done you need to ensure your watch is linked to WiFi so you can Sync your playlists from your Spotify premium to the phone. It's totally confusing, close to jacking it in completely - but it does work, I have sync'd 2 of my running playlists to the watch and tested them. Keep persevering , I can only imagine if I had an Apple i Watch it would be 10 times easier.

Works great, love being able to listen to music while I run without phone.

March 5, 2021

This is totally misleading & frustrating.Advertising it is the best. It will not sync,only to be outlined afterwards 'only Spotify premium'. Watch looks great but hoped it would play music from my Spotify. Fix this urgently!! obviously your customers are also jinxed too. One star for quick delivery.

Only for spotify premium

March 4, 2021

Disappointed. Got the watch with music to play Spotify premium. Cannot download any of the playlists or songs. Please fix the problem.

Bought this watch specifically for the Spotify music feature but was completely let down by the useless app. It’s alway either “failed to connect to internet” or “unable to download certificates”

March 4, 2021

Also got the "Unable to download certificates" when trying to sync (spotify and amazon music) @ firmware 6.20 for forerunner 245M. What now helped was a downgrade to firmeware 5.50 which I found an the garmin homepage in the 6.04beta file (follow the instructions on the homepage). Then turned on auto update software on the watch rightaway and before downgrading allready in the connect app. Still just one stat for now.

I had the same problem with "not finding certificate" - it worked after reinstalling the ap.

I am not able to install Spotify into my garmin fenix 6s pro, what is strange because everything was working till yesterday. Is there any issue to be solved or?

March 4, 2021

I think that it is very good.

Au moment de télécharger la playlist, la montre ne parvient pas a se connecter au wifi. L'utilisation de spotify est l'une des raison qui ma fait choisir cette montre, je suis déçu. Vite une mise à jour.

March 4, 2021

When going to add music just get the message 'searching for WiFi networks' then nothing happens. Was the main reason i bought this watch and doesn't even work correctly

March 4, 2021

Like everyone below I can’t sync my Spotify! So annoying

One of the main reasons I bought this expensive model watch was to listen to music without my phone. I cannot sync. "Unable to download certificates" is the error I am getting.

March 4, 2021

I cannot sync, an error appears saying "Can't download certificates". I do manage to connect and see my play lists but when I try to add them it s trying to connect to wifi for ages and then throws the error described above. How can I listen to my Spotify play lists on my Garmin watch?

Bought a VA4 today, tried to sync, around 1 minute on wifi connecting screen and then says the certificates can't be downloaded. Shame, bought it for this reason.

March 4, 2021

I don't have any synchronisation issues. It works very well. I would like to have better podcast support such as automatic download of new episodes. So far each new episode has to be downloaded manually. Also I don't see why download is only allowed with battery above 50 percent. I want to be able to download podcasts on a daily basis even with battery below 50 percent.

I can't seem to sync the music. Please help!

1 star is overrated. Not syncing. Tried everything. Embarrassing for such an expensive watch.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
