Garmin has just launched a new addition to its fitness-watch range in the shape of the Enduro, a super-charged wearable aimed at the ultra-athletes of the world.
Designed as an upgrade to the Fenix series, the Enduro has a tonne of features to help you track long-distance running, hiking and endurance exercises.
Starting at £699.99, the Enduro is among the more expensive watches from the fitness-tech company, though it is a similar price to its predecessor the Fenix 6. Many baulked when Apple released fitness trackers that cost upwards of £300, but Garmin has built a rugged, durable and advanced watch that can go with you to literally any terrain.
The solar-charging features return for the Enduro, extending the battery to up to 80 hours of GPS should you want to use it.
A full charge will give you 70 hours of normal battery if you don't use the solar-powered feature. It achieves this longer-lasting battery life by removing the in-built mapping features of previous Garmin watches – but it's good to know you only really need to charge this fitness watch once or twice a week.
The Enduro is also supposedly one of Garmin’s lightest watches, with an UltraFit nylon strap and optional DLC-coated titanium bezel to make it ultra durable, though it still looks sturdy enough to survive a tumble or two down a mountain, in typical Garmin fashion.
There are three new features on the new Enduro:
Trail Run VO2 Max – VO2 Max with trail runners in mind, this feature adjusts your VO2 Max to take into account the impact of terrain and altitude on heart rate and pace
Enhancements to ClimbPro – ClimbPro helps you pace your current and upcoming ascents and descents, meaning you can pace more effectively and approach descents more safely
Rest timer – In ultrarun activity, the rest timer allows for quick checking of time spend in aid stations and allows athletes to more accurately monitoring break times post-race
Garmin Enduro starts at £699.99, and is available to buy in the UK now.
