Smartwatches were finally worth our time this year

The growing popularity of smarter timepieces helps explain why smartwatches are co-opting features previously associated with fitness trackers and GPS sports watches, says Parks Associates analyst Kristen Hanich, who notes that the different categories have overlapping features.

"Basic activity tracking is highly popular, but it's a fairly standard feature," Hanich says. "Consumers want more -- which in many cases means a smartwatch."
