CES 2016 officially kicks off for everyone on January 6, but Fitbit will get the ball rolling on Tuesday with an early morning keynote during press day (January 5). The fitness tracking company plans to capitalize on its successful holiday sales by holding the first press conference of the week at 7:30 a.m.. It is unknown exactly what Fitbit plans to announce during the event, but analysts expect new slimmer devices with more capabilities and sensors. It will be interesting to see if Fitbit can continue holding off the Apple Watch and remain the leading fitness device manufacturer. The company's free iOS app recently led Apple App Store downloads in December suggesting it had strong sales throughout the 2015 holidays.
Wearable devices are expected to have a big presence at this year event along with virtual reality devices and drones.
LG has already made a splash by announcing a "futuristic 18-inch rollable display that can be rolled-up like a newspaper." The display maker will also be showcasing a new 55-inch double-sided display that shows of video on both sides. LG will be holding its first press conference of the year on January 5 at 8 a.m..
