The Garmin vivoactive 3 Music has storage for 500 songs

Garmin is following up on the Forerunner 645 Music (a $450 watch) with the vivoactive 3 Music a $300 watch. Both earn their name thanks to the built-in storage for 500 songs that you can take with you on a run, no phone needed.

You can transfer the music files from your computer or download them from iHeartRadio (Deezer support is coming soon). Then you need to pair some sweat-proof headphones and head out.

You can also check AccuWeather before you leave and track when your Lyft and Uber ride arrives.
