Garmin launches new ultra-performance watch, the Enduro
Garmin launch their newest multisport watch, designed for the ultra-endurance athlete, which comes with a whole host of performance stats.
Garmin’s latest multisport performance watch has been launched today, with its specific focus being on providing hi-tech endurance data for the ultra-runners.
Along with the classic Garmin features, the Enduro comes with the ability to calculate a trail running VO2 Max which takes into account terrain and elevation, enhanced ClimbPro software that works to pace you on your hill climbs and descending, and a rest timer to calculate the total time spend in aid stations for endurance racing events.
Despite being primed for the ultra endurance runner, this watch is a GPS multisport watch and equally compatible for the multisport athlete. Ideal for multisport events and endurance brick training, the impressive 80hr battery (even in GPS mode) will take you far; the watch is powered with the help of advanced PowerGlass solar technology, with which Garmin claims the battery can last for up to 65 days. The watch also has specific MTB features which can rate trail difficulty with grit and flow measurements, and it has a host of recommended workouts and training guidance based on your current training and fitness. Other general health metrics include a HR sensor and Pulse Ox meter for altitude acclimatisation and sleep health tracking.
As an adventure companion the Enduro is lightweight and durable, fitted with a titanium bezel casing. Pro ultra runner and Garmin athlete, Tom Evans says: “Enduro has proved to be perfect for ultra-running. It’s light but hard-wearing and includes some amazing new features that make it something special for endurance runners. I particularly love the updates to ClimbPro, which make elevation pacing a breeze. But what’s incredible is the battery life – it would be a real challenge to outlast 80 hours of battery on one run!”
Available now, the Enduro models range in suggested retail price from £699.99 to £799.99. To learn more, visit garmin.com/enduro.
