Garmin has unveiled a new connected watch, the Lily. This one, available in two versions, is primarily aimed at women, taking inspiration from feminine watch watches.
In the field of connected watches, many manufacturers offer a very sport-oriented approach with angular designs and particularly large cases. Rare are indeed the brands to adopt the style of watches for women, with much thinner straps and smaller watches.
Yet this is what Garmin offers with its latest model of connected watch, unveiled this Thursday, the Garmin Lily. This connected watch is indeed intended particularly for women with a small size adapted to the thinnest wrists. It thus takes up the aesthetic codes of women’s watches from traditional watch manufacturers, with a 34.5 x 34.5 x 10.15 mm case and a strap adapted to wrists with a circumference of 110 to 175 mm.
On the technical side, the watch offers an LCD screen of 1 inch in diameter by 0.84 inch. It is therefore not a perfectly round screen, but oval, with a definition of 240 x 201 pixels. This touch screen is integrated in a stainless steel or aluminum case depending on the version (Sport or Classic), while the strap is available in leather or silicone, depending on the model.
Full health tracking, but no built-in GPS
Regarding the features, the Garmin Lily allows heart rate monitoring with detection in case of irregular frequency, but also monitoring of blood oxygen saturation, stress and sleep monitoring, reminders for hydration and even monitoring of the menstrual cycle. However, the watch does not offer integrated GPS, although Garmin is historically a specialist in this technology. It also does not include 4G connectivity or NFC for contactless payment.
On the autonomy side, Garmin announces that its connected watch Lily can last up to five days.
The Garmin Lily watch is already available. It is offered in a sport version – aluminum case and silicone strap – at 199.99 euros and in a classic version – stainless steel case and leather strap – at 249.99 euros.
