Garmin Enduro 2: A watch crammed with features for the endurance athlete

In between endurance races, you can also use standard Garmin features such as contactless payments


Garmin has a new multisports watch, aimed at the endurance athlete. The ultraperformance watch comes with an incredible battery — 150 hours in GPS mode and 46 in watch mode — and includes solar charging, an LED flashlight, and more precise positioning. The materials have also been carefully chose, from the lightweight titanium bezel and rear case to the Ultrafit nylon band. TopoActive and ski maps are preloaded on the watch, while the NextFork map guide shows trail information. It also comes with the usual health features, from heart rate monitoring to body battery and fitness age. In between endurance races, you can also use the standard Garmin features, including contactless payments (bank dependent).
