Garmin introduces fitness wearable, pregnancy tracking application
By Digital News Asia February 16, 2021
- Comes in two variations: Lily Classic and Lily Sports
- Features include menstrual cycle tracking, pregnancy tracking
GARMIN Malaysia has formally introduced the Lily, a smartwatch targeted at women. Available in two variants, Classic and Sport, the Garmin Lily features a 34mm watch case, T-bar lug style, subtly patterned lens, and elegant color options ideal for those who “seek a fashion-forward alternative to what is currently available on the smartwatch market,” the company said in a statement.
It’s not all in the aesthetics though – the Lily comes features that include menstrual cycle tracking, which the company claimed is the first fitness wearable to come equipped with a pregnancy tracking app.
“The Lily is truly a first-of-its-kind smartwatch: highly feminine, sophisticated and rooted in fashion with essential health and fitness features,” said Garmin Asia director Scoppen Lin. “Garmin remains committed to creating products that will fit the needs of our female customers. In this case, it’s a small, trendy smartwatch with features designed for female health monitoring.”
Garmin said the Lily is “designed by women, for women,” which culminates in a petite size inspired by classic, jewelry-akin timepieces designed for smaller wrists. The Lily’s 34mm watch case is said to be Garmin’s smallest yet.
The Garmin Lily features a unique metallic patterned lens that reveals a bright liquid crystal monochromatic touchscreen display that disappears when not in use. Each of the six different Lily styles has its own lens design.
Both variations – Classic and Sport – differ aesthetically. Classic features an Italian leather band, stainless steel bezel and hardware and comes in three colourways. The Sport version, on the other hand, comes with a silicone band, aluminum bezel and hardware and is available in three athleisure-inspired colorways.
The Lily comes with the expected health tracking features as with other Garmin releases. Garmin claimed the features are able to monitor respiration, pulse oxygen (ox), stress, hydration, advanced sleep and heart rate. It also touts a 'Body Battery' energy monitoring feature that can show the body’s current energy level. This helps with scheduling workouts, rest times and sleep (on top of making your life very much like The Sims), the company said.
Other features include Breathwork (activity guides to help users relax) and sports apps for yoga, Pilates, cardio, treadmill and others. What’s unique to Lily is the Women’s Health Feature, beginning with menstrual cycle tracking and the newly-launched pregnancy tracking.
With these, users can log pregnancy-related symptoms, track baby movement, blood glucose levels, create customisable reminders, and receive exercise and nutrition tips, Garmin claimed. Active moms-to-be can also adjust heart rate alerts and pause training status completely during their pregnancy, it added.
Garmin’s Lily Classic and Lily Sport are available at a suggested retail price of US$283.43 (RM1,150) and US$226.74 (RM920) respectively on Lazada, Shopee, AECO e-store and all authorised retailers.
