Garmin launches Enduro 2 multisport GPS watch with 150-hour battery life
Garmin has announced the Garmin Enduro 2, a sequel to the excellent Garmin Enduro multisport GPS watch.
Among the improvements is an increase in the Enduro’s already epic battery life. Garmin claims an impressive 40% increase, with the Enduro 2 capable of lasting up to 46 days in smartwatch mode and 150 hours in GPS mode thanks to the addition of solar charging.
Despite this improvement in endurance, Garmin’s new endurance watch features a lightweight design with a titanium bezel and rear case combined with a nylon strap.
It is preceded by another 1.4-inch screen, covered with a Power Sapphire lens. This time, however, Garmin has wisely added touch controls to go along with the usual physical buttons.
Garmin has also added a new dimmable LED flashlight, which is the company’s brightest yet, so endurance runners can keep going when the sun goes down. This includes an optional strobe mode that matches the rider’s cadence, as well as a red running light mode.
New preloaded TopoActive Europe maps, multi-band GNSS and a NextFork map guide promise to combine to provide greater awareness of your current location. The Enduro 2 also implements an automatic rest timer, so you don’t have to worry about pausing your run at pit stations.
All that, and the Garmin Enduro 2 has all the usual smartwatch features, including all the expected health and fitness tracking, Garmin Pay, and smart notifications for all your calls, texts, and reminders. It is compatible with Android and iOS.
Such a complete endurance watch does not come cheap. The Garmin Enduro 2 is available now for £929.99.
