The outlook: Fitbit has confirmed it is working on a fitness smartwatch that will be released later this year. Little is known about the product, but it will likely include features from recently acquired companies like Pebble, Vector and Coin.
The outlook: The Apple Watch Series 2 is a worthy successor to the original. We love the addition of GPS and its swim-proof design. Battery life has also improved, although it could be better. That's why we're excited for the next model. The latest rumors suggest the Apple Watch Series 3 will focus on improving battery life and overall performance. It may also include LTE connectivity, which would allow it to function independent of your iPhone.
The outlook: Misfit's upcoming Android Wear smartwatch looks to have it all. The watch features a bright and circular display, and it's equipped with GPS and an optical heart-rate sensor. It can also be worn in the shower or while swimming. Other features include Wi-Fi and the ability to store music right on the watch.
The outlook: Garmin has been on a roll lately. Not only was it one of the few companies to see shipments increase in 2016, but it continues to crank out some of our favorite sports watches.
What could be next for Garmin? The company announced the multisport Forerunner 935 in late March, but we expect to see another new watch sometime this year. The Forerunner 235, our favorite running watch, will be two years old in October and is prime for a refresh.
The outlook: Movado Connect will be the company's first Android Wear smartwatch. It will come with five unique and customizable watch faces based on designs of traditional Movado watches. While details are slim, the company did say the watch would include NFC for mobile payments.
