Garmin strives to maintain Bluetooth compatibility with the most popular brands of headphones on the market. When paired with your compatible Garmin watch, these headphones allow for wireless listening of audio such as music, podcasts, and audio prompts on compatible products.

Are There Certain Models of Headphones That Garmin Recommends?

Your Garmin watch has been designed to work with most Bluetooth-compliant headphones. Not all headphone features will work with Garmin watches such as volume control, pause, or skip, for example. Audio performance and Bluetooth range will vary across brands and models.

Garmin recommends the following headphones based on their Bluetooth performance with your watch:

SonyWF-SP700N
SonyWH-1000XM3
SonyWI-C300
JBLT110BT
