With such a robust battery life, the Enduro is a godsend for almost any athlete. However, it is really aimed at ultra-endurance runners: those who run not just for hours but days in training sessions and long races. Plus, with the addition of solar charging capabilities, you don’t have to worry about the watch dying in the race. But the Enduro offers more than just great battery life.
In the plain old Smartwatch mode, the watch will last up to 50 days, or 65 days with solar charging (which assumes three hours a day outside in 50,000 lux conditions). In Max Battery GPS mode, you can expect up to 200 hours, or 300 with solar energy. Expedition GPS activity mode offers up to 65 days and 95 days of solar power. Most impressively, the Battery Saver Watch mode can allow the watch to last up to 130 days on battery or up to a full year on solar power.
The Enduro also has some other new features that round it out and make it a really good choice. With Trail Run VO2Max you can now get more accurate VO2Max estimates specifically for trail running. With the Ultra Run Rest Timer, you can now record the time spent at the rescue stations and view those post-race analyzes. There are also improvements for ClimbPro, namely ClimbPro 2.0 Descents and Alerts; With them, the watch can track and display descents and warn you before a climb begins.
Garmin enthusiasts will also notice the watch’s similarities to the Fenix 6. Apart from the addition of the great battery life and the solar charging, they are almost the same in terms of features and software. The overall familiar feel of the watch interface is great for those who are already used to it and don’t want to bother with spending time figuring out a new interface.
Of course, it also has some of the standard stats you’d expect from a Garmin device, such as multi-mode GPS, a pulse oximeter, and the Garmin Connect smartphone app. The Enduro is available in two finishes. The stainless steel base model with a gray UltraFit lightweight nylon strap for $ 799.99 and the titanium coated carbon gray bezel for $ 899.99.
