Headphones for garmin

I’ve just got a Garmin 645 and I was wondering if anyone here has some good recommendations for headphones for it? Thanks 😁

We just bought fairly cheap ones from amazon they linked quick and easy and sound good, amazon.co.uk/Mpow-Bluetooth...

That’s the make although model slightly different

I haven’t got a watch that plays music but it it links with Bluetooth, the same as with a phone, then I can recommend aftershokz titanium bone conduction earphones as they allow you to hear other runners or bikes around you. Some races only allow these. They aren’t cheap but Santa brought mine, and I would never go back to in ear plugs.

I’ve got that! I’ve got aftershokz bone conductor headphones. These type are the only that are allowed in some races as you can still hear everything around you. You can answer the phone in them too 😍

I never answer my phone when I’m running and I switch the ringer off. If I forget and it rings, I tell it to get lost 😁.

It’s just for my son who I leave home alone. Just in case.

My sister would ring me for absolutely no reason so I turned her off 😁. My husband doesn’t ring me as he knows it drives me mad 😁

Very handy for ringing up your spouse to meet you for coffee, with a hoodie, post run though.

Hi Hillrunner. Just to add another option for you, I have a pair of Anker Soundbud Flows which I bought to replace my Soundcore Spirits which I lost (then found!). They’re both Bluetooth and very very comfy. I only wear one ear when running for safety purposes, but the sound is still fantastic. 😀

I tried Aftershokz but I didn’t find them comfortable to wear and I’m a picky soul!

Enjoy your new watch and good luck choosing headphones.

I never spend much on anything, let alone earphones My cheapest - but couldn’t fault them - were from Lidl The 30 quid apple ones are poor so never buying those again

My best ones are Bluetooth Muzili from Amazon which were a gift. Not dear though.

Thanks for the replies everyone! I normally enjoy choosing gadgets but for some reason didn’t know where to start with the headphones! Anyway I have ordered some aftershokz titanium.

Not sure if you are male or female, but you’ll probably need mini version if you’re a woman. Or a smaller man.

Mine aren't the mini, I was worried about the band bit hanging off but actually it's not even noticeable.

I'm using mine at work now too, so fed up of news updates on the radio I just listen to my own music 🤣👍🏻

Mine arrived today and they’re not the mini but they seem to be fine. Actually I’m pretty impressed with them overall but will test them properly on a run this weekend. I know what you mean about the news 😆
