The ultra-performance multi-sport GPS watch Garmin Enduro has finally been introduced

Garmin has released information about their upcoming sports watch today. The Garmin Enduro is a “ultra-performance multisport GPS watch” with solar charging, according to Garmin. Those who place a pre-order today should expect it to arrive in 5-8 weeks.

The Garmin Enduro is now official, following numerous leaks and rumors. However, because a number of merchants leaked device details and promotional movies of the device were obtained on Vimeo and Youtube, almost everything was already known.

In 2021, Garmin already introduced one smartwatch. It’s named Lily, and it’s the company’s first watch designed specifically for women. We know that the 955 and potentially the 955 LTE will be released later this year, as well as the next Fenix watch. But first, let’s take a look at another Garmin.

Technical specifications for the Garmin Enduro

The Garmin Enduro is a smartwatch that looks similar to the Garmin Fenix 6 Solar. The clock is made of a lightweight material that is yet extremely tough to protect it from the weather. Enduro is short for endurance, which is why it’s called that.

Enduro features an always-on 1.4” display in terms of design. The bezel, buttons, and back case are all made of steel or DLC-coated titanium. All of this is held together by a flexible nylon hook and loop strap.

The actual dimensions are 5.1 x 5.1 x 1.49cm, with the steel version weighing 72 grams and the titanium version weighing 58 grams. 6X has the same dimensions as 6X.

Enduro includes the majority of the features found in the Fenix 6 lineup. Trail Run Vo2Max and Climb Pro are also included in the advanced training options. Climbs, descents, and flats are all detailed in the later.

The Trail Run VO2 max is a significantly modified version of the Garmin VO2 max. It keeps track of your cardiovascular fitness and adapts to changing trail conditions.

There’s also a timer for ultra-running rest. This allows you to keep track of how much time you spend at aid stations.

Aside from that, it’s business as usual. The improved recuperation timer and training recommendations have returned to a Garmin watch. There are also workout recommendations based on your sleep and wellness data. Multi-GNSS support, as well as a barometric altimeter and compass, are all mentioned in the listing.

The battery life is excellent.

On the Fenix line, Garmin’s solar charging technology made its premiere. Some people think of it as a gimmick rather than a great selling factor. Enduro, on the other hand, has the same Power Glass solar charging lens. This absorbs the sun’s rays to extend your running time.

With GPS turned on, you should expect to get roughly 70 hours of use between charges. When you turn on the solar panels, the time increases to 80 hours. To expand this number, there are adjustable power management modes that allow you to toggle sensors on and off. In Max Battery GPS Mode, you can get up to 300 hours of battery life.

In smartwatch mode, you may expect up to 65 days of battery life. There’s also a Battery Saver Watch Mode that lasts up to a year without needing to be charged. This is with all-day wear in 50,000 lux conditions for 3 hours each day.

Garmin, on the other hand, has made certain compromises.

Enduro is essentially a stripped-down Fenix 6X with improved battery life. There is no sapphire screen, no built-in audio storage, no GPS, no internet, and no preset golf courses, among other things.

Which is better: the Fitbit Ionic or the Garmin Vivoactive 3?

Furthermore, the storage space is only 64MB, far less than the 32GB of the 6X. That’s a significant difference. There’s also no mention of an enhanced optical heart rate sensor or a more precise GPS chip.

This is an ultra-marathon watch designed exclusively for multi-day ultra-marathoners. They’ll appreciate the battery life, but they’ll be disappointed by some of the foregoing shortcomings, such as the lack of maps and music. Given that many ultrarunners go on trails and occasionally use maps to navigate, the former is a bit of a riddle.

Price and release date for the Garmin Enduro

Garmin Enduro starts at $899.99 for the titanium variant. The stainless steel version of the watch costs $100 less. Both are available for purchase on Amazon and will arrive in 5-8 weeks.
