Garmin has introduced its latest multi-sport watch called the Enduro, which features customizable power management modes and a Power Glass solar charging lens that harvests the power of the sun to extend battery life up to 65 days. The new watch also gets advanced training features and key performance monitoring tools tailored to help endurance athletes better train and perform at their peak.
“Built to last during any training session or ultra-event, Enduro gives ultrarunners and cyclists the confidence that their watch has as much energy as they do, plus the unique insights they need to monitor their performance,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of worldwide sales. “And with Enduro on their wrist, ultraperformance athletes can focus on the competition instead of their battery life.”
Created with endurance athletes in mind, the Enduro’s lightweight and durable design features a new UltraFit nylon strap and optional DLC coated titanium bezel. Moreover, cyclists can quickly adjust settings to disable certain features in order to get the longest battery life of 70 hours in GPS mode, which can be extended to 80 hours thanks to its solar capabilities.
Designed for demanding race conditions, the Enduro has several new training and recovery tools such as:
Everyday wellness tracking
Additionally, the Enduro offers innovative health and wellness features that include wrist-based heart rate and a Pulse Ox sensor for altitude acclimation and advanced sleep tracking. It also includes Garmin’s exclusive Body Battery feature that monitors data to gauge energy levels, which can help with scheduling workouts and rest times.
Staying connected, even off-grid
No matter where the route may lead, staying connected is critical. The Enduro is packed with navigation and connectivity features including access to multiple global navigation satellite systems to track in more challenging environments than GPS alone, as well as built-in ABC sensors such as an altimeter for elevation data, barometer to monitor weather and a 3-axis electronic compass.
When paired with a Garmin inReach Mini satellite communicator, users can send and receive messages quickly from the wrist and share their location so friends and family can follow along, even during the longest of races or extended training sessions that go beyond reliable cellular connectivity.
The inReach Mini is lightweight and compact and can easily be clipped to a hydration pack or vest. In addition to two-way text messaging and location sharing, inReach Mini includes interactive SOS. When the SOS is activated, a response coordinator will track the device location, notify emergency responders in the area, and stay in communication with preset emergency contacts throughout the incident.
Available now, the Enduro models range in price from $799.99 to $899.99.
