We get all the info on the Enduro, Garmin's new watch designed with ultra runners in mind

While stats don’t make or break a run, there is nothing quite as annoying as realising that your watch has conked out on a long run, especially if you are tracking your training for a race. So we were very excited to hear about Garmin’s Enduro: their new ultra-performance GPS watch made with ultra-runners in mind.

It boasts an  impressive 80-hour battery life, powered by Garmin’s solar technology – perfect for back-to-back long-distance runs (especially if, like us, you regularly forget to charge your tech), as well as ultra events and multi-day races.

Enduro also features a whole set of smart tech to help us along as we run. ClimbPro helps us to pace current and upcoming ascents and descents, while Trail Run VO2 Max continuously adjusts our VO2 Max to suit the terrain and altitude. And it keeps going even after we’ve stopped – its built-in recovery advisor tells you how long you need to rest after running, tracking sleep and other wellness metrics to improve performance and help avoid injury.

Its lightweight and durable design is ideal for longer runs, as it won’t weigh you down, and wherever you run it will be able to track effectively, thanks to its navigation features that can access multiple global satellite systems.

Retailing at around £699, it’s definitely an investment piece, but if you’re an ultra runner or keen to take your training long-distance its features could well be worth the extra spend – leaving you to focus on your run, rather than your watch.
