Garmin is no stranger to endurance athletes, with countless products for runners, cyclists, and outdoor enthusiasts. Today Garmin expanded its lineup by introducing the Enduro 2. A follow-up to last year’s Enduro, the newly launched GPS multisport watch aims to keep up with even the longest performances.

A set of Garmin Enduro 2 watches display a variety of device screens including race day and training tools.

Garmin’s Enduro 2 features a lightweight titanium build, a touchscreen housed under a Power Sapphire lens, and a nylon band. Thanks to solar charging and SatIQ technology, users can stretch the watch’s battery life to up to 150 hours in GPS mode. In smartwatch mode it can last up to 46 days.

But harnessing sunlight and sipping on the battery isn’t the Enduro 2’s only bright spot. It also offers a built-in LED flashlight, similar to that of the Fenix 7 series but twice as bright. If you’re still out on the road after dark, you can change the flashlight to a red safety light setting or a cadence matching strobe mode.

For the big race day, the Garmin Enduro 2 features preloaded TopoActive maps, plus tools such as NextFork, a visual race predictor, and a grade-adjusted pace feature to help athletes adapt to different routes. It will even automatically record rest station breaks so you don’t have to pause your run mid-race. These tools are in addition to Garmin’s full suite of health and fitness features including heart rate, stress, SpO2, and sleep monitoring, plus Health Snapshot, Body Battery, and Fitness Age. On the smartwatch front, the Enduro 2 still offers Garmin Pay and incident detection but now also adds music storage.

The Garmin Enduro 2 is not cheap. To strap the above features onto your wrist will cost about $1,100. If that’s in the budget, shop for one today at Garmin.com.
