Word of the Day – for Garmin Watches

Get the word of the day, right on your wrist!

Powered by Wordnik, when your smartphone is connected to your watch, view the Word of the Day widget daily on your Garmin watch to learn a new word and refresh your vocabulary daily.


  • Open the Word of the Day widget to get today’s word of the day from Wordnik
  • The widget remembers when the daily word has already been loaded – open the widget successive times that day and it will not reload the word from the site again
  • Some words have multiple definitions – scroll through these on the watch by tapping on the screen (if your device has a touchscreen) or pressing the Enter key (Start/Stop, Play, etc. depending on your device)
  • Want to view more information about the word? Hold on the screen (if your device has a touchscreen) or use the menu option to open the word page on Wordnik in your phone’s web browser
