Garmin has announced the Garmin Enduro 2, a follow-up to the excellent Garmin Enduro multisport GPS watch.

Improvements include increasing the Enduro’s already epic battery life. Garmin claims an impressive 40% increase, with the Enduro 2 able to last up to 46 days in smartwatch mode and 150 hours in GPS mode by adding solar charging.

Despite this increase in durability, Garmin’s new endurance watch features a lightweight design with a titanium bezel and case back paired with a nylon band.

It is fronted by another 1.4-inch display covered by a Power Sapphire lens. This time, however, Garmin has wisely added touchscreen controls to accompany the usual physical buttons.

Garmin also added a new dimmable LED flashlight, the company’s brightest yet, so endurance runners can keep going when the sun goes down. This includes an additional light mode that matches the runner’s cadence, as well as a red light mode for safety.

New preloaded TopoActive Europe maps, multi-band GNSS and NextFork map guidance promise to combine to provide increased awareness of your current location. The Enduro 2 also features an automatic rest timer, so you don’t have to worry about stopping your run at aid stations.

All this and the Garmin Enduro 2 has all the usual smartwatch features, including all the expected health and fitness tracking, Garmin Pay and smart notifications for all your calls, texts and reminders. It is compatible with Android and iOS.

A full-featured endurance watch like this doesn’t come cheap. Garmin Enduro 2 is available now for £929.99.
