Garmin Enduro 2 New Features
So, what can potential users find on this premium sports wearable?
One of the notable features of the Garmin Enduro 2 is updated solar power capabilities. When in solar mode, the Enduro 2 offers an impressive 46 days of battery life in smartwatch mode. The watch also offers 150 hours in GPS mode, ensuring your watch never loses power mid-exercise.
The Enduro 2’s battery life lasts 40% longer than the first edition.
Endurance athletes need reliable maps, especially when taking on new terrain. The Garmin Enduro 2 comes with built-in TopoActive maps, and these include multi-continent coverage.
Alongside these maps, the wearable offers a NextFork map guide for trail running. This feature is optimized for on-the-go distance and location tracking. Never stray from your path again.
As seen on the Fenix 7, the Enduro 2 now has a LED flashlight. This is a handy on-wrist feature to help users get active at night. This flashlight is dimmable to provide visibility in the evenings. Strobe settings and a red mode are also available.
Another essential training feature is the new ‘Health Snapshot’. This metric records all vital health statistics to give you a snapshot of your health.
Metrics included are:
- Pulse Ox
- Heart Rate
Alongside health snapshots, the Enduro 2 also provides Garmin’s popular Body Battery tool, sleep monitoring, and your unique Fitness Age. This is a wearable built to guide your training so you can reach your personal best.
What additional features can you find on the Garmin Enduro 2?
- Built-in music
- Durable design
- Titanium bezel and Power Sapphire lens
- Ski maps
- Grade-adjusted pace
- Visual race predictors
- Sports modes – including biking, running, yoga, golf, surfing, and hiking

This wearable is complete with all modern features, allowing you to thrive in any sport. However, we suggest new smartwatch users opt for a simplified model first, as the Garmin Enduro 2 is designed for experienced endurance athletes.
What do you think of the Garmin Enduro 2? This smartwatch has arrived sooner than expected, and it hasn’t disappointed. But, with an abundance of premium features comes a hefty price tag. This watch retails for $1099.99, so keep this in mind while shopping.
