Here's everything you need to know and in-depth review of the new Garmin Enduro 2 adventure multisport watch, which brings with it larger battery life and a smattering of new features. I've put it to the test over the summer, testing out every component to see how it handles. Dive in for this complete review. With the the Enduro 2 GPS watch, Garmin has what is essentially a Fenix 7X Plus. It’s got every single feature of the Fenix 7X series, but adds more, both in hardware and software. The new Enduro 2 has the longest battery life of any Garmin watch, and depending on how you tally the solar figures – any watch in the endurance sports market. It’s got a built-in flashlight that’s twice as bright as the Fenix 7X, and it’s got new trail-focused features to automatically identify trail junctions before you go down the wrong path (even if a course isn’t loaded). I’ve been testing the Enduro 2 over the course of the summer, putting it through its paces. Both day-to-day workouts and regular 24×7 activity tracking, but also the epic 170KM Tour du Mont Blanc, with the aim of trying to complete it on a single battery charge (while still using all the features at full-tilt). Which, is a great way to get this review cooking!

There is a another slight hardware difference, the Garmin logo is now bigger and fits the cutout.
Love your reviews!
I have a Garmin Instinct (1st edition) and it is all I need right now. Plenty of battery power an functions.
What I dont get is how to handle Multi Sport activitis like "Bike&Hike" or "Bike&Climb2 for example.
We often bike to a basement and hike to the peak and bike home again. Is ist possible to make such a profile?
Can i switch manualy to an other profile, without ending the session?
That would be a big bonus?
thx a lot
You and Des really know how to make the best comparison videos! Hats off guys, keep it up
Excellent review! Also, some of the battery usage could also be effected by lack of solar deep in the canyon and very shaded areas, not just challenging gps areas. Or some combination of lack of solar and also higher gps drain. Just a thought.
Do u think this watch is worth the price tag would u buy it I like it but idk if I should buy it I always like the best lol
do you need a screen protector for this?
To me the screen is just ok. Only the Epix has superb screen tmho
Great video!! I didn't even know there was an Enduro :) Looks awesome! Hopefully, Garmin fixes those bugs soon that you found.
I got the Enduro 2 and was worried it would be too big. I was coming from the samsung galaxy 4 watch. I don't hardly notice it and am having no trouble sleeping with it. I do notice it a bit when running. Love the watch. Yes the flashlight is amazing.
Thanks for your great reviews.
Hi.. Greetings from India. I was planning to buy enduro 2 for navigation purpose but i have doubts if the navigation would work. The thing is that there's a national park near my home and there are some hidden routes where no one goes. Its not a route technically. Just wild trees and 5 feet long grass. At times the path i take, i sometimes deviate because of rain and other weather condition and growing plants, grass as long as 5 -7 feet. Since nobody uses the path, do you think the enduro 2 navigation will be accurate in following the route if once i save the hike trail? There are leopards in the national park which usually dont attack so i dont want to get lost deep in the jungle. Your feedback would help.
The battery life is ridiculous and this review is amazing. The ultimate use case scenario for such a watch. Great job!
The Apple Watch Ultra will destroy this thing - back to the drawing board Garmin 🤣
Can somebody tell me why should I buy this if I already have a Tactix Delta? Genuine question.
Any recommendations on the best Garmin for heart rate monitoring and solid battery life? They are the main things I need.
Great review, Ray. Do you know if GAP and Next Fork will be available for the Fenix 7 in future software updates? I'm now with the 9.33 firmware and they are not. I have HRV and training readiness but neither GAP nor arrows guidance and next fork signalization.
this is your best review so far! brilliant job! thanks
Great great review mate
@ qdjnuaGGSpE&t=4m30s 4:30 "adding power to the GPS in dense vegetation" doesn't make sense. this is not a two way communicator, it's only listening for the GPS signals (timestamps) and using trilateration to find your location.
if it's reducing the frequency of the calculations, sure, but it's not ramping up/down the wattage used to"listen" for signals.
this basically sounds like this Garmin has a very poor algorithm , and didn't think about multipath interference (same timestamped Signal bounced off large flat surfaces) during the firmware design.
Have you ever reviewed the Whoop 4.0 device? I was searching your videos and couldn't find this company/device reviewed. I would love for this device to be reviewed. I've been looking for an unbiased, in-depth review similar to videos on your channel. Thanks!
