DISPLAY AND DESIGN
The Garmin Enduro has a circular display with a diameter of 1.4” and a resolution of 280 x 280 pixels. In this case, Garmin used a backlit display Memory-in-Pixel panel. Stainless steel and diamond-like carbon-coated titanium bezels are available for users to choose from. Fiber-reinforced polymer is used to build the shell, which has a metal cover on the back.
Similarly, Garmin’s UltraFit strap is made of nylon. It has a two-hook and-loop closure. The stainless steel version weighs about 72g, while the Titanium with DLC coating weighs just 58g. The watch has a water resistance value of 10 ATM.
Garmin Enduro also includes enhanced Trail Run VO2 Max, ClimbPro Trial, and Ultrarun Activity. The Trail Run VO2 Max is a tool that estimates trail runners’ cardiovascular fitness levels. ClimbPro will help you better prepare your climbs. It displays data such as descents, flats, gradient, distance, and height gain. MTB Dynamics can also show mountain bike metrics.
The ABC sensor device on the watch keeps track of all your trails. An altimeter, a barometer, and a tri-axis electronic compass are all included. Multi-GNSS is also assisted by the watch.
Garmin Enduro’s optical sensor not only monitors the pulse but also detects heart rate variability. HRV can also be used to measure the stress level. A Pulse Ox sensor, for example, measures oxygen saturation. It can also monitor your sleep and altitude acclimation.
Your sleep score, respiration data, and information about the three stages of sleep are all provided by the watch. Body energy control, hydration tracking, and respiration tracking are among the other useful features.
Moving on, it has a solar charging lens built in, which Garmin refers to as Power Glass. When exposed to sunlight, it will continue to charge the battery. With the solar in smartwatch mode, the watch will last up to 65 days (55 days without it). Similarly, GPS sessions can be extended from 70 to 80 hours. Similarly, turning on the power saver mode will give you even more battery life.
