GARMIN ENDURO: OUTSTANDING NOVELS.
The Enduro features Garmin’s Power Glass solar charging lens. The system works as we saw with the pioneer GARMIN FENIX 6 PRO SOLAR that we presented to you from Chamonix: A special photosensitive crystal that allows the sun’s energy to charge the watch as you move. A full charge of the watch will give an athlete 70 hours in GPS mode, this extends to 80 hours when used outdoors.
Unfortunately, Garmin has removed the native built-in mapping features of the Fenix 6 Pro to deliver this extended battery life. In return, it still maintains a navigation path element.
As for easy to use, the watch remains noticeably light and barely larger than the other solar watches in the Garmin collection. It is available, as explained above with and without titanium bezel. The fit is completed with a new Garmin UltraFit nylon strap, lightweight and comfortable for the skin. There is also the option to switch to a silicone or leather strap if you prefer.
GARMIN ENDURO: NEW TRAINING AND RECOVERY TOOLS
With Enduro, Garmin has launched several training and recovery tools to help runners on an ultra adventure. In addition to traditional smartwatch features, with Enduro, Garmin has added, among others:
- VO2 max. Trail: runners who travel the trails regularly will notice that their VO2 max. It’s different in the toughest race conditions. The new VO2 max trail run option automatically adjusts based on performance, environment, heat and acclimatization at altitude.
- ClimbPro Trail Enhancements: taken from Garmin cyclocomputers, this gives runners real-time information about current and future climbs, including slope, distance, and elevation gain. Runners will be able to see how far away they are from a climb, allowing them to adjust their pace and effort accordingly.
- Sleep timer: when running in the ‘ultrarun’ configuration, runners will be able to start and stop a rest timer to record the time spent at each relief post.
- Mountain Bike: With the addition of mountain bike metrics plus specialized sand and flow measurements, you’ll now get a trail difficulty rating.
- Recovery: after each workout, the watch provides runners with recovery data and tells them how long they should rest based on sleep and wellness data
