The battery is one of the strengths of this pair of smart watches, the Garmin Enduro being much better. Here it is worth noting that both have solar charging , as we said at the beginning, and that the battery life depends on the use, the mode with which the smartwatch is had, the music and if the GPS is activated.

And it is that in smart watch mode, with the solar charging function activated, the Enduro can last up to 65 days in operation , while the Fenix ​​6 Pro Solar, only for up to 16 days. Below, in the technical sheets of both watches, you can see how good the autonomy of these watches is in all cases.

Something that the Enduro does not have, but the Fenix ​​6 Pro Solar does, is storage for music , so if you like to do exercises or any other activity while listening to your favorite songs without having to carry your smartphone, the second is your option. to choose, with its 32 GB available.
