How do I turn on music on my TomTom watch?

There's nothing better than working out to the beat of your own, motivating music. That's also the reason why you've bought a TomTom sports watch that lets you store music. You have about 3GB of storage for music, which is about 500 songs. It can be a bit tricky to add music yourself, which is why we'll guide you through it step by step in this article.

In short

  1. Create a playlist on your computer and connect the watch to your computer. 2 Click the music note button in the TomTom MySports Connect program.
  2. Add the playlist to your watch.
  3. Select which song you want to listen to on your watch.

Step 1: Create a playlist on your computer and connect the watch to your computer.

First, you need to create a playlist on your computer. You can do this with help of several programs, like Windows MediaPlayer or iTunes. You can only transfer music onto your watch with help of a computer. This isn't possible via the app on your smartphone. Now, connect the sports watch to the computer. The TomTom MySports Connect program will automatically open. You'll now see the start menu of the program.

Step 2: Click on the music note button in the TomTom MySports Connect program
