Launched in 2021, the Garmin Lily is a stylish smartwatch that offers modern features and high-tech fitness sensors.
This is a trendy model from the wearable tech giant, filling a gap in the market for fashion and on-wrist technology fans. Garmin Lily owners boast competitive smartwatch features with a one-of-a-kind design.
Standard smartwatch release cycles tend to be from 12 to 18 months long. Since this model was released approximately 14 months ago, the second generation of this watch is likely on the way.
We’ve investigated possible features for this popular smartwatch; keep reading to see our predictions.
What Is The Garmin Lily?
Before we jump into future features, we’ll quickly give a rundown of the key Garmin Lily elements. Explore our full Garmin Lily review here.
This smartwatch is sleek and stylish, moving away from Garmin’s typical masculine and rugged design. Some say this smartwatch is designed with women in mind; however, all genders can use it.
With a mixture of health features, sleep tracking, fitness models, incident detection, and women’s health features, this watch has everything needed to thrive in modern life.
The smartwatch is available in two editions – Classic and Sport. These give users the options between an Italian leather band or a silicone strap. You can also find this smartwatch in Rose Gold, Cream Gold, Midnight Orchid, Light Gold, or Dark Bronze.
What Features Will The Garmin Lily 2 Have?
While the first watch already offers an extensive range of tools and features, there are some areas for improvement. Here are the top updates we want to see on the next watch.
A key complaint about the Garmin Lily is the lack of GPS features. If the second model contains on-wrist GPS features, it will be able to compete against top sports watches. Unfortunately, many sports fans might opt for different models without this crucial feature.
Of course, a key reason the watch may not include GPS is that GPS could bulk up the design. Garmin needs to find a way to balance sleek design and on-wrist GPS for the potential second generation.
Garmin Lily users have commented on the slight inaccuracy of the Garmin Lily watch. When you use health and fitness features, you want accurate results! However, some users noted that the Garmin Lily often shows different readings from other smartwatches. This may only be an issue with select watches, but hopefully, it’s removed for the next launch.
Battery Life Improvements
Other users have noted that the Garmin Lily battery tends to drain faster after a few uses. Though this watch is marketed to have five days of whole battery life, some watches are empty after two days. Hopefully, the next model will have stronger battery life and faster charging.
Though there’s no official launch for the next watch, it’s an exciting possibility. We’re big fans of this smartwatch, so the second generation of this watch would be at the top of our list to see. What do you think? Would you be interested in a Garmin Lily 2? Let us know in the comments!
