Garmin just announced the Enduro ultra performance GPS-smartwatch. This new watch has a focus on endurance sports and has built in solar cells which can stretch the battery life up to 65 days. There are also a couple of new features specifically for (ultra) endurance and trail running.
The Endure watch is already dubbed the Fenix 6.5 by some. To see the differences between the Fenix 6 series and the Enduro check out my comparison here.
There are two versions. A steel and titanium version. Weighing 61g and 71g respectively.
First a bunch of photos (with high res after click). More text below.
Enduro is designed for all race circumstances and has a bunch of new training and recovery features. So, what’s new?
- Trailrun VO2 max: This is new. The first watch that calculates your VO2 max on trailrunning.
- ClimbPro Trail: A feature we’ve seen on Edge cycling computers, now also on a watch. With grade, distance and altitude monitoring.
- break timer: In the ultrarun-activity you can set a break timer at the aid stations during the race, so you leave on time for your goal.
- Mountainbiking: grit & flow measurement as seen on the Edge computers as well.
- Recovery: The new recovery indicator takes dynamic data (good and bad) from your sleep and wellness. Think about stress and body-battery, etc.)
- Recommended workouts: For training guidance you can get daily run and cycling suggestions based on your current training load and status.
