At CES 2024, Garmin announced two new hybrid smartwatches targeted towards women — the Garmin Lily 2 and Lily 2 Classic — and a new heart rate monitor designed to clip onto sports bras. 

Nearly three years after the original Garmin Lily brought sleek style to a bulky Garmin watch lineup, the Garmin Lily 2 mostly keeps to the same formula. It has a 5-day battery life, monochromatic touchscreen, Body Battery scores, women’s health monitoring,  tracked heart rate, calories, and intensity minutes. 

Also like the Garmin Lily, the Lily 2 series has distinct patterns etched into the lens glass that add a stylish backdrop to your health data. Each color option has its own distinct pattern, from leaves to flowing waves.
