Think about your average smartwatch. What type of autonomy does he have? If you’re an Apple Watch user, you’ll probably need to plug in your watch when you go to bed at night – or at the very least, every other night. The new Garmin Enduro GPS watch is designed to blow all other batteries out of the water with its 65-day capacity.
The Enduro GPS watch is designed for ultra-endurance and high performance even in the most extreme conditions, but it is specially designed for endurance athletes. Ultra-runners and long-distance cyclists can go there several days at a time knowing their watch will follow them. The Enduro doesn’t do this through massive battery capacity, but using a Power Glass solar charging lens to extend battery life up to two months using the power of the sun.
Enduro is also tailor-made for athletes. It can track VO2 max levels and automatically adjust for trail conditions, such as heat level and elevation. It provides an accurate reading of cardiovascular fitness levels and can help athletes know when they are short of breath. A built-in climb planner called ClimbPro helps you plan different hikes in advance, including distance, elevation, and incline.
Another feature called the Rest Timer helps you measure the time you spend at rescue and rest stations during marathons. This gives runners a better idea of their total time and areas where they could increase their overall time.
A built-in recovery timer will automatically suggest how long your body needs to rest after a strenuous workout. The timer measures energy expended and training intensity and provides users with information to help them heal properly before pushing their limits. If you’re a mountain biker, the Garmin Enduro can provide you with information like specialized grain and flow measurements, rate the trail’s difficulty, and track the total time of your descent. It tracks your record for you so you know what time to beat on the next ride.
Even if you aren’t into extreme sports, the Garmin Enduro has advanced sensors that can benefit the everyday person. It tracks your heart rate and other important vital things like sleep quality and includes Garmin’s Body Battery feature. In theory, this helps measure your body’s overall energy levels to help you plan workouts.
The most impressive feature of the Enduro is the inReach Mini satellite communicator. This allows users to stay connected and send messages to friends and family via satellite, even when they are outside of cellular service areas. GPS makes it possible to find the wearer at any time, even when he is far from civilization. It’s a watch that combines utility and safety when it’s needed most.
The Garmin Enduro is expected to cost $ 800 to $ 900 and is available for purchase now.
