"I just bought my new TomTom Runner 3 and I decided to buy it with music as well as cardio information. Once I realized the bad news, that my Spotify was not allowed to be sync with my watch I was devastated. That is why I ask all runners of the world to vote for this idea and make the running a better world with Spotify and watches together. Because music is the most important partner as you run alone." – From Spotify Community
