Apple (AAPL 0.87%) just entered the smartwatch market last spring, but already rumors are swirling about what the next iteration of the Apple Watch will bring.

But whichever new features Apple ends up bringing to the device, the company is expected to maintain its smartwatch lead until at least 2019, according to IDC.
