In addition to its size, there are a few other features that the company says make Lily a “feminine” device, like a “T-Lug Bar”. There is also a “subtitled pattern lens” that sits just below the watch face to add some texture. The design depends on which model of Lily you choose, and are available in six different styles in two categories: Classic or Sport. The unit I received had a wavy design, while our commercial editor Valentina Palladino received a version that featured a plaid pattern of sorts. Because Lily’s touchscreen does not always turn on and falls asleep at idle, you are left with a lens pattern to see.
The markings are subtle enough not to get in the way of words and graphics on Lily’s monochrome LCD touchscreen. In addition to tapping and swiping on the display, so to speak, you can use the capacitive key at the bottom of the face to work the clock. There are no physical buttons here.
Functionally, Lily offers a mix of features found on Garmin’s other watches such as the Venu class and Vivomov style. They both have a full-color screen (and Vivomov uses an AMOLED), but otherwise offer the same 5 ATM water-resistance rating and monitoring of heart rate, stress, hydration, respiratory rate, and blood oxygen. Of course, since their displays are different, battery life also varies. Garmin says that Lily will do 14 days of activity tracking (7 time sessions), similar to the Vivomov style, while the Vinoo SK only does activity tracking for 200 hours.
