Breitling unveils Endurance Pro sports watch

Words by Rob Chilton

When you want to make a sports performance watch, ask a German triathlete.

The Endurance Pro watch from Breitling is the result of a conversation between elite German triathlete Jan Frodeno and the company’s CEO. Georges Kern, a keen cyclist, asked Frodeno what he wanted from a watch and then implemented his ideas in the Endurance Pro – a fitting name for a watch inspired by a guy who won gold at the 2008 Beijing Olympics and has three Ironman World Championships.

Described by Breitling as an ‘athleisure watch’ the sports chronograph is colourful and lightweight thanks to its case that’s made from Breitlight, a material three times lighter than titanium and almost six times lighter than stainless steel.

Inspired by the Breitling Sprint watch from the 1970s that came with a pulsometer to measure heart rate, the Endurance Pro also has a heart monitor and comes in five colours: white, blue, red, orange and yellow. It’s priced at a rather attractive AED 11,770.

Matching the strap is a coloured crown that is easy to grip, while the second hand has an easily legible red tip – both handy features for an athlete striving for a personal best. Fitted with a durable rubber strap, the 44mm water-resistant watch has a movement made from SuperQuartz that is ten times more accurate than conventional quartz.

Kern adds, “The Breitlight case is so light that it won’t interfere with anyone’s training routine or sporting activity.”
