Samsung Galaxy TabPro S

Tablet

The Surface Pro 4 is the Windows 10 device to copy and although the Galaxy TabPro S isn't a clone, it's certainly a rival. This device comes with the magnetic keyboard dock which uses metal contacts instead of Bluetooth. There's a 12.5in screen, 10 and a half hour battery life and an Intel Core M processor meaning a fan-less design.

Smartwatch

Well-known watch maker Casio has gone down the smartwatch route with the oddly named WSD-F10. This is a circular screen device running Android Wear with a robust design aimed at those who love the outdoors. It doesn't have GPS but it is waterproof to 50m and can measure atmospheric pressure.

LG gram 15

Laptop

Looking for a Windows alternative to the latest MacBook? Well say hello to the gram 15, LG's latest laptop. It's gold like Apple's stunner but the gram 15 is the world's lightest 15in laptop at just 980g thanks to its magnesium alloy body. Inside is a Core i5 or i7 processor and up to 512GB SSD.

Withings Go

Activity tracker

The Go is Withings smallest and cheapest activity tracker to date. It's a not much bigger than a two pound coin and can be worn in different ways including a watch and inside a clip. The always on e-ink screen gives basic information on your progress, works as a clock and means battery life is a healthy eight months.

£49 inc VAT

Acer Liquid Jade Primo

Smartphone

Phones are few and far between at CES but Acer is back on the Windows Phone bandwagon with the Jade Primo. Unlike a lot of Acer phones we've seen, the Primo has some serious specs including a 5.5in SuperAMOLED screen, 21Mp camera and a Snapdragon 808 processor. Windows Phone is no more so it comes with Windows 10 Mobile.

Huawei MediaPad M2

Tablet

The amount of new tablets coming out has dropped a lot recently but Huawei has something new to catch your eye. The 10.1in Android tablet has a premium metal and glass design with a Kirin 930 octa-core processor hidden beneath. It also has not two, but four speakers placed on the edged for above average sound performance.

From $349

Dell UltraSharp InfinityEdge

Monitor

If you've been dreaming of having the screen of Dell's XPS latest laptop in monitor form then we have great news. The InfinityEdge monitors come with tiny 5.3- or 7.3mm borders respectively, 99 percent sRGB accuracy and four USB 3.0 ports. You can get a 23.8in model with a Full HD resolution or jump to 27in with QHD.

27in from $719
23in from $349

Parrot Disco

Drone

The most interesting drone at CES 2016 is the Disco from Parrot. It's the first fixed-wing drone and is driven by a single propeller at the rear instead of using four like most on the market. That's not all as it features automatic take-off and landing. Simply throw it in the air and it will do the rest.

HP EliteBook Folio

Laptop

At 12.4mm, the EliteBook Folio is touted as the world's thinnest and lightest business class notebook. Similar to the LG gram, it weighs less than a kilogram and offers a battery life up to 10 hours. There's also USB-C and a 12.5in 4K display on board which can flip 180 degrees.

From $999

Fitbit Blaze

Activity tracker

Although it looks like it, Fitbit maintains that the new Blaze is a tracker like its other products. However, it can connect to your phone over Bluetooth to provide notifications for things like calls and text messages. Either way, the Blaze is customisable with a range of straps and features a ‘PurePulse’ heart rate sensor but no built-in GPS.

£159 inc VAT

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Tablet

Tablet

Lenovo going all suit and tie with its tablet doesn't sound exciting but the ThinkPad Z1 Tablet offers a modular design. You can bump the battery life to 15 hours, clip on a pico projector and HDMI port or add an Intel RealSense camera. It's a rival to the Surface with a keyboard dock, Core-M processor, up to 1TB of storage and a 2560x 1440 IPS touchscreen.

Sony Bravia XD93

TV

TVs are always a large part of CES and HDR (High Dynamic Range) is the big thing for this year. The XD93 range is the first to feature Sony's Slim Backlight Drive, a new grid-array backlighting system to create brighter peak highlights and deeper blacks with up to three times the brightness range of conventional TVs. Sony also wants to tempt you with the virtually bezel-free design, X1 processor and Android TV.
