Playing Audio Prompts During Your Activity

You can enable your Forerunner® 245 Music device to play motivational status announcements during a run or other activity. Audio prompts play on your connected headphones using Bluetooth® technology, if available. Otherwise, audio prompts play on your smartphone paired through the Garmin Connect™ app. During an audio prompt, the device or smartphone mutes the primary audio to play the announcement.
