Last Updated on February 27, 2021 by Jude Simeone

Garmin Enduro is the latest addition to the rich list of Garmin GPS smartwatches, it’s a rugged and fine smartwatch with just about the same features as the Fenix 6 Series, but however, lacks a map feature for Trendline Popularity routing, music storage, and WiFi in exchange for a whopping 1-year battery life with solar mode.

The Enduro is fitness-focused and comes with a fiber-reinforced polymer case that is paired with a stainless steel bezel or a more premium titanium bezel(Priced higher). It’s quite bulky at 51mm and has a display size of 1.4 inches powered by transflective memory-in-pixel (MIP). It lacks touchscreen support but comes with 5 physical buttons for easy navigation.

As per fitness tracking, the Enduro is equipped with a heart rate sensor, GPS, accelerometer, gyroscope, and other sensors that enable it to track activities such as sleep, heart rate, calories, floors climbed, steps, and many more.

The monster battery life of the Enduro is its main highlight which according to Garmin can go up to 50 days or more with solar. And with continuous GPS tracking, it’s up to 70 hours or more with solar.

Furthermore, the Enduro also allows you to manage notifications with the ability to respond to notifications with preset quick replies (Android).

What’s New on Garmin Enduro?

New features have been introduced to the Enduro which will also be available on Fenix 6, Forerunner 945, Forerunner 745, and 245 in the future.

  • VO2 Max. for Trail Running: VO2 Max. for trail running has been improved which will now give you more accurate figures compared to before now.
