Garmin has unveiled the Enduro, a new smartwatch with up to 65 days of battery life. The Enduro has such long runtimes thanks to solar charging technology. Still, it is more than capable in other areas, including GPS tracking, NFC contactless payments and all the fitness functionality one could expect from a Garmin.

The Enduro is Garmin's latest high-end smartwatch, and one that starts at US$799.99. That price gets you a smartwatch with a steel chassis, with Garmin charging another US$100 for a titanium model. Both models come with a nylon strap, for reference.

Unsurprisingly, Garmin has packed the Enduro with loads of technology, including a solar charger that can keep the smartwatch running for up to 65 days between charges. While this battery life is commendable, Garmin's estimates drop to 80 hours with GPS activated. 

Both models have a 1.4-inch display with a 280 x 280-pixel native resolution, which corresponds to a 35.56 mm diameter watch face. Garmin has used a transflective memory-in-pixel (MIP) display, which it has paired with 64 MB of memory, a heart rate monitor, a VO2 monitor, a sleep tracker and an NFC chip for making contactless payments using Garmin Pay. The Enduro can pull notifications from your smartphone and support Garmin's Connect IQ store for downloading custom watch faces and third-party apps.

Additionally, the Enduro supports every kind of activity mode imaginable and is 10 ATM water-resistant. The Enduro can advise on recovery times too, and can suggest daily workouts, among other features. The Garmin Enduro is already shipping in the US and other markets, including Europe. The Enduro will not be available in the UK until mid-March or mid-April, though.
