It's great to see so many cool ideas, but sometimes those things take a while to actually transform into something you can buy.

Everything we've gathered here is a new announcement for CES 2022 that's either available now or will be later this year. We'll be updating this article as more products become available.

Garmin has stepped up from the Venu 2 and 2S by adding a speaker and microphone, meaning you can now take calls and send a quick text right from your wrist. It maintains all the great trackers it had before and adds an AMOLED display that's clear in daylight. Plus, unlike the competitors, this watch has a battery that lasts up to nine days on a single charge. You should note, though, that the new watch only comes in one size: 43mm.

The display can go up to a 4K OLED screen and 28-watt Intel processors. It's expected to drop this spring starting at $1,199.

According to LG, this is the company's first five-channel system with an upfiring center channel. This new flagship soundbar for 2022 will allow the voices from whatever you are watching to come out of the center so it feels like you're watching at the theater. With IMAX Enhanced support, DTS:X support and Dolby Atmos support it's bound to offer some of the best at-home audio you can get this year. 

LG has not yet announced pricing or availability, but the previous version ran close to $1,700 and was available in spring.

Coway took to CES 2022 promising the first smart air purifier with a wireless charging station.

And on the top of this air purifier, you'll find a platter for charging your phone. 

Coway says this air purifier will be available in April.
