Fitbit's latest tracker, the Blaze, seems directly aimed at the smartwatch lovers. The Blaze will be available in March for $200. (International prices aren't available yet, but this roughly converts to about £135 or AU$280.) This wearable device leans on style, with a dash of extra watch-style smarts. You can change its design, too; the center part of Blaze pops out and can be swapped into other bands and accessories.

The DIR-879 is the first in D-Link's new EXO line of Wi-Fi routers that strike a balance between performance and cost. This is an AC1900 router (1,300Mbps on the 5GHz band and 600Mbps on the 2.4GHz band). The router features Gigabit Ethernet (for fast wired connections), a high power amplifier (for better Wi-Fi range), SmartConnect (blending two Wi-Fi bands into a single network) and Intelligent QoS (traffic optimization for Internet applications). It will be available soon after CES and will cost $150.
You've heard of Apple's iPad Pro and Microsoft's Surface Pro, but what about the Samsung Galaxy TabPro S? It's a razor-thin, stylish 12-inch tablet like the latest iPad, but with a full Windows 10 operating system to run all your traditional programs. You'll be able to get your hands on one come February. Don't get too excited just yet, however, since the pricing is not availble at this time.

The D-Link Unified Home Wi-Fi Network Kit is an interesting concept that consists of a Wi-Fi router and a range extender -- specifically the AC4200 Tri-Band MU-MIMO Wi-Fi Router (model DIR-891L) and the AC1300 Gigabit Wi-Fi Extender (DAP-1655). The kit will be available in the second quarter of 2016 with an estimated price of $400.
Here are the two new versions of stainless-steel Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch plated in platinum and 18-karat rose gold. Pricing is not clear, though it's expected to be higher than the $300 or AU$499 or £299 original. The new watch options should land sometime in March.
The SR20 Smart Home Router is the first AC1900 router from TP-Link that can also work as a hub for home automation by supporting ZigBee and Z-Wave wireless standards. This means the router can connect not only to networking devices, but also Internet of Things (LoT)-ready appliances. The SR20 also features a large touchscreen and includes a mobile app. It's going to be available in the second quarter of the year.
The Dish Hopper 3 DVR will be available to Dish subscribers in the next few months. Not only does it have 16 tuners and Netflix integration in its universal search results, but there's a new proprietary "Sports Bar Mode" that allows you to play four live HD channels simultaneously on one 4K screen.
The new Intel Compute Stick has similar look and feel to the previous model though it does add a little bit of length to the chassis. That's because rather than the single USB port on the first Stick, this new model has two ports (one USB 3.0, one USB 2.0), which is handy if you want to plug in wireless dongles for a keyboard and mouse, or any other peripherals. It's shipping now for a suggested retail price of $159 in the US.

This new super-compact portable drive from Samsung is the first of its kind features a USB-C connector. This means apart from existing computers, it will also work with the latest Android mobile devices. Available in March from 250GB to 2TB, this is the portable storage device that you should look forward to.
Samsung's new Family Hub Refrigerator sports a 21.5-inch screen on the door and cameras inside to snap photos of your food.
It's expected to start selling this spring. At $5,000 (about £3,370, or AU$6,860), it's about as expensive a fridge as you'll find from a major manufacturer. But it's also the first smart appliance that feels legitimately futuristic.

The Array is the first smart lock from the reputed security firm Brinks. It looks industrial, but along with solar power, it packs plenty of friendly features. With built-in Wi-Fi, the Brinks Array connects directly to your router so you can use the iOS or Android app to lock and unlock your door from anywhere. It will be available in a few months.
Due out early this year, LG's Smart Security Solution doesn't do any one thing that's shocking, but it does do a whole lot of the things you'd want from a home security device. And it could be the perfect cornerstone to the new ADT Canopy system. Pricing is not yet available.
Available in March, the new D5 is not cheap, costing $6,500 (UK or Australian pricing not available yet but that's £4,430 or AU$9,100 converted). Though the price tag is hefty, Nikon has addressed a lot of the needs of sports and low-light photographers.
If you have to need to turn on (and especially off) your oven while you're out and about, Samsung has that covered with the addition of Wi-Fi to four of its newest ranges. These Wi-Fi ovens will be available in March. The four ovens include three of the company's Flex Duo models in gas, induction and electric and will cost somewhere between $2,799-$3,299.
It incorporates the same new autofocus and metering systems that debuted in the D5, and a new 20.9-megapixel CMOS sensor that delivers a maximum sensitivity of ISO 1,680,000 -- highest in its price range, the D500 is quite impressive. In addition to body-only, Nikon plans to offer a kit with the relatively new 16-80mm f2.8-4 lens for $3,070 (directly converted, £2,095, AU$4,300). The camera starts shipping in March.
The Android Wear-powered Casio WSD-F10 is built for those that love to be outdoors. Its display features a dual-layer that includes both a monochrome LCD and color LCD, and the whole watch meets military standards for rugged durability. The new smartwatch is available in April for $500 (about £340 or AU$700.)
The watch is powered by Android Wear, which means it can display notifications from your iPhone or Android device and provide personalized Google Now cards on the weather, your favorite sports team and more.
