How To Listen To Audible On Garmin Watch?

If you want to listen to Audible on a Garmin watch then you need the following things:

  • Audible Membership: First of all you need a membership to Audible so that you can download audiobooks for yourself. I am guessing you already have this.
  • Audible Download Manager: The second thing that you need is the Audible Download Manager to download the audiobooks on your laptop/desktop. Go right ahead and install the Audible Download Manager on your PC.
  • Audio Converter: Next thing that you need is the audio converter app on your laptop or desktop. Because the format in which audiobook gets downloaded can’t be played by a smartwatch and you will need to convert it into MP3 format. There are plenty of audio converter apps available in the market, you can use anyone.
  • Garmin Express: The last thing that you need is the Garmin Express app installed on your laptop or PC.

Once you have all the four things mentioned above then follow the below steps:

Tom's love for watches started when his grandfather gifted him his Rolex watch when he turned 18! Being a teenager it was a big deal for him. Later when he got his first job he bought Fossil Palm Pilot back in 2003 which was a smartwatch. Since then smartwatches have come a long way and so is Tom's love for them. His experience with watches inspired him to start Wearholic and share his knowledge of wearables including watches, smartwatches, smart glasses, & smart clothing.
