Garmin's most advanced multisport performance watch has been launched, with its special focus being on giving hi-tech endurance data for the ultra-runners. The Garmin Enduro Ultra Performance Multisport GPS Watch is all sing and all dancing. Read on to find out what the Garmin Enduro GPS Watch has to offer.
The Garmin Enduro features the Power Glass solar charging lens, which uses the power of the sun in order to charge the watch when you're outside. A full charge of the watch will get an athlete 70 hours in GPS mode, and this is increased to 80 hours when used outside.
Garmin has removed the native in-built mapping traits of the Fenix 6 Pro in order to offer this lengthened battery life, although there is still a breadcrumb trail element on the watch for you to use.
Garmin Enduro is a smartwatch comparable to devices in the Garmin Fenix 6 Solar series. The watch has a very lightweight design that is, at the same time, quite rugged to defend against the elements.
As far as design, Enduro comes with an always-on 1.4" display. This is matched with a steel or DLC-coated titanium bezel, buttons found on the rear case. The face is attached to a lightweight elastic nylon hook and loop strap.
The exact dimensions of the GOS watch are 5.1 x 5.1 x 1.49cm, and the weight is only 72 grams for the steel version and just 58 grams for the titanium model. The Gramin 6X comes with those same dimensions. I don't really consider the weight of a GPS watch as a big deal; we are talking just a few grams. But I know it's important for some, so I have included the information for you to assess.
The Enduro GPS watch inherits most of what you got with the Fenix 6 watch range. The high-level training features also introduce something named Trail Run Vo2Max and Climb Pro. The latter gives data on climbs, descents and flats, which I think is a great feature and very useful data.
This is a watch specially created for multi-day ultra-marathoners. They will enjoy the battery life but not some of the omissions, such as the lack of maps and music. The former is a bit of a mystery considering many ultrarunners run on trails and sometimes use maps to navigate their routes, especially when exploring in an unfamiliar environment.
I guess Garmin assume this watch is more for race day when the course will be signed. However, it is not really affordable to buy one watch for racing and one watch for training - not for me anyway.
The Enduro watch has some new training and recovery tools. Many traditional multisport smartwatch features have been expanded specifically to the demanding requirements of endurance athletes:
