Fitbit has been in the news quite a bit in anticipation of its upcoming smartwatch. The device is due out this fall and it will have built-in GPS, a high-res colour display, activity, sleep and heart-rate monitoring, contactless payments and on-board storage for music. It will also be water resistant down to 50 metres and have its very own app store. We’ve even caught a glimpse last week of the first images of the yet unnamed device.
