In the previous quarter, Garmin has increased its shares in the wearable market. It is the result of the company’s new functions and the wide support for third-party apps. Like recently, Garmin smartwatches have received Amazon Music streaming service. Amazon Music is one of the largest music streaming services like Spotify & Apple Music. Along with good battery backup, health tracking sensors, and exciting badges, the Garmin Fenix series smartwatches get app notifications. Also, the Fenix 5 & Fenix 6 series can get WhatsApp messages on the main display to stay updated in your friend circle or in your work.
It is not the first device to get this treatment as the previous watches are also rich in receiving app messages. WhatsApp is one of the essential apps for many customers on smartphones as well as smartwatches. With the over 2 billion users, it is the most downloaded apps in Apple App Store & Google Play Store. The Garmin Fenix series watches are so advanced that you can receive all the messages. We are not saying you can use the WhatsApp app on the wearables, but you can receive the messages, control them, or delete them. For the new users, here is a guide to use WhatsApp on Garmin Fenix watches.
