Looking for a trail-running smartwatch with a monster battery? This deal on the Garmin Enduro is worth a look.
We’ve regularly featured Garmin’s products on our best fitness trackers list, and there’s a good reason for this. When we tested the Garmin Enduro, we especially appreciated the battery life on it. It can last up to 50 days in smartwatch mode, and up to a year in battery-saving mode.
Similar to other best Garmin watches, this one is extremely durable. There are tons of health metrics too, including stress tracking and sleep tracking. The GPS functions are stellar—you can check your positioning at any point in your workout, and even retrace your steps during trail runs. It even comes with an in-built compass and gyroscope.
So, if you’re looking for a steal, the Garmin Enduro is over $400 off at Amazon, for a limited time only. Hurry and get one before it sells out!

Reviews consensus: The Garmin Enduro is a phenomenal watch tailor-made for trail-runners and ultra-marathons, with Garmin’s full suite of advanced GPS features and its long solar battery life ensuring you’ll never get lost, even if you’re out for a full week of adventuring. It’s got a great design and more endurance tools than you’ll be able to get your head around in a month, never mind the week we tried the watch.
Buy it if: You’re searching for a lightweight smartwatch that has an incredible battery life. It can last up to 50 days in smartwatch mode, and up to a year in 'battery saver' mode with solar top-up. It’s extremely durable, and there are a bunch of GPS functions included. For example, the display offers positioning at any point in your workout, along with a feature that allows you to retrace your steps.
Don't buy it if: We would have loved to have seen in-built stored music capability with the Garmin Enduro, but sadly, it isn’t available. This means you may need to take your smartphone with you when using the smartwatch. It can feel chunky for those with small wrists, and in some cases, the multisport capabilities were not intuitive during testing.
