4 things you didn't know you could do with a Garmin smartwatch

By Moira Dollard

A watch that is a heck of a lot smarter than me

Today on the UNiDAYS app we are giving away 3, yes 3, Garmin smartwatches. If you don't think you need a smartwatch, sorry to tell you, but you're wrong. These are 6 things that your smartwatch will do for you (that you didn't even realize you wanted).

1. Play music

The more places to play music, the better, amiright? With the Garmin ForeRunner 245, you can play your music right from Spotify to your watch! Now you won't need to worry about carrying around your phone with you just for some tunes. An image gif source

2. Track your location

Not in a creepy way, though. Have you ever gone on a run and then a mile in you realize you have no idea where you're going? Yeah, me too. With the Garmin smartwatch, GPS is built in so it can help you find your way back home, no matter how far away you run. An image gif source

3. Get notified

If you're like me and don't keep your phone in your back pocket 24/7, you can miss a lot of notifications, sometimes important ones. With Garmin smartwatches, you will get notified when you have an incoming call or receive a text. Never miss an important text or call (or inside joke in the group chat) again! An image gif source

4. Last up to 7 days

I am always forgetting to charge my devices. I'm lucky that anyone can reach me on my phone because the chance of it having more than 50% battery is less than 50%. Thankfully, my Garmin smartwatch can last up to 7 days on one charge, so while you still have to charge it, you don't have to remember to do it every night! An image gif source
