Garmin’s 80-Hour Solar ‘Enduro’ GPS Watch Was Made For Ultramarathons

Feb 18, 2021

For most runners, a long weekend effort will max out around two to three hours tops — short enough that almost any GPS watch will do. However, ultramarathoners are a decidedly different breed, for their runs can span days at a time, with little to no support along the way. It’s as much a test of fitness and will as it is a proving ground for gear.

With the launch of its ‘Enduro’ GPS watch, Garmin is taking aim at precisely these such endurance junkies. For instance, it features an UltraFit nylon strap and a steel (or titanium) bezel, a combination that’s comfortable, lightweight, and — most importantly — hard-wearing. What’s more, it’s been given the longest-lasting battery life of any Garmin on the market, with up to 80 hours in GPS mode, 300 hours in max battery mode, and as many as 65 days when used as a smartwatch. But the best part is that in addition to Garmin’s standard fare — including heart rate monitoring, GPS route tracking, and daily workout suggestions — it’s also been fitted with all-new ultra-specific functionality like trail run VO2 max, ClimbPro, and even a Rest Timer to log time elapsed at aid stations. It’s available now for $800 and up.
