Garmin Enduro 2 ultraperformance smartwatch adds mapping, touchscreen and its longest-ever battery life

Olathe, United States. 09 August, 2022 – Garmin International, Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd., announced the Enduro-2 ultraperformance multisport GPS smartwatch. Purpose built for endurance athletes, the rugged yet lightweight Enduro 2 includes built-in TopoActive maps with multicontinent coverage, a superbright LED flashlight and Garmin’s exclusive SatIQ technology to help optimise battery performance. What’s more, enhanced solar harvesting provides up to 46 days in smartwatch mode and up to 150 hours in GPS mode to outlast the longest ultra race or greatest adventure.

“Ultraperformance athletes know what commitment means, and Enduro 2 is a trusted tool that can aid and enhance the training and recovery process,” says Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of global consumer sales. “Now with built-in mapping, music, Garmin best-in-class battery life and growing list of performance features, Enduro 2 is a must-have for any endurance athlete.”

Built for the extremes

Crafted with premium materials for ultimate durability and comfort, Enduro 2 includes a lightweight and sophisticated titanium bezel and rear case, 1.4” Power Sapphire lens, Ultrafit nylon band for a secure and comfortable fit, and a new touchscreen interface that complements Garmin’s traditional button controls. During the day, Enduro 2 harnesses the sun’s energy to provide battery life of up to 150 hours in GPS mode and up to 46 days in smartwatch mode. Endurance athletes can keep trailblazing with confidence long after the sun sets thanks to a new dimmable LED flashlight. Enduro 2 contains Garmin’s brightest flashlight to date. Twice as bright as fenix 7X’s flashlight, it provides an optional strobe mode to match a runner’s cadence or a red safety light mode that allows users to see and be seen.

Enduring features

With enhanced solar charging capabilities, Enduro 2’s battery life lasts up to 40% longer than its predecessor. Built to outlast the longest ultra race, Enduro 2 includes Garmin’s renowned navigation capability, preloaded TopoActive and ski maps, and Multi-band GNSS with SatIQ technology secures superior positioning accuracy in any environment while optimising battery life. Enduro 2’s built-in Wi-Fi connectivity makes it easy for users to load software and update maps without using a computer.

Training features

  • NextFork map guide shows the distance to the next trail intersection, as well as the name of the upcoming trail, so users have increased awareness of their current location.
  • Grade-adjusted pace helps runners pace themselves over varying terrain by displaying what an equivalent running pace would be on flat ground, allowing users to adjust their pace and maintain stamina throughout a race.
  • Visual race predictor provides a pacing estimate for upcoming runs based on running history and overall fitness level. This trend data shows how training is having an impact over time so users can close in on that next PR.
  • Automatic rest timer logs breaks during ultrarunning races to keep track of the time spent moving or at aid stations, so users don’t need to worry about pausing their run.
  • ARWS-approved adventure racing activity profile tracks heart rate, elevation, segment times and other metrics when the race is on and saves the data for post-race viewing in accordance with adventure race rules. A summary screen even helps verify a user’s finish time with the race committee.

Know your body better

The new Health Snapshot feature will record and generate a report of key stats, including heart rate, heart rate variability, Pulse Ox, respiration and stress. Advanced features include body battery, fitness age and sleep monitoring with sleep score – plus a variety of built-in indoor and GPS sports apps such as mountain biking, swimming, hiking, running, golf, yoga and surfing. Enduro 2 leverages these health metrics in performance features like recovery advisor and daily suggested workouts to provide users with the tools to help them perform their best.  

Stay Connected

While in between activities, users can take advantage of Garmin Pay contactless payments and receive smart notifications for calls, texts, calendar reminders, social media updates, breaking news stories and more when paired with a compatible Android or Apple smartphone. When paired with a smartphone, Enduro 2 can send a message with a user’s live location to their contacts manually – or automatically during select outdoor activities – with built-in incident detection.
