Smartwatch rumours 2016

The smartwatch had a bit of a slow start, but now more and more wrists are being adorned with the miniature computers. They started life a little garish and bulky, but recent releases from Samsung, Motorola and Apple, to name a few, have proved it was just a matter of time.

This is what we’re looking forward to before the end of 2016 from the smartwatch world.

Samsung Gear


Expected: September

As you can see from this article’s headline image, Samsung is gearing up to release its next smartwatch. We’ll be on the ground at Berlin’s IFA to bring you all the latest information as it happens, so make sure you keep it with The Lowdown.

Not too much is known about the next timepiece from Samsung, but we’ll put money on it running the Tizen OS and featuring a similarly circular face to the Gear S2.

Apple Watch

Expected: September

It’s been over a year since we saw the launch of the Apple Watch, and we can’t wait to see what’s going to be coming next. As the year’s most anticipated smartphone launch looms closer, could we be seeing a dual product announcement?

Pebble Time

Expected: November

Pebble’s smartwatches are all about practicality, and the Pebble Time 2 is no different. Aimed at the ‘active professional’, the slick wearable features a built in mic, 1.5-inch rectangular display and heart rate monitor. It’ll work with both Android and iOS devices, expected to be on the shelves by November.

Blocks


Expected: ???

Blocks is an exciting concept, not too dissimilar to Google’s Project Ara. The smartwatch lets you customise is with modules that make up the strap, including a GPS tracking, LED torch and hear rate monitor.

A release date is still uncertain, but we look forward to telling you more soon.
