The Apple Watch accounted for half of global smartwatch sales in the fourth quarter of 2018, according to Strategy Analytics.

But the watch still lags behind other devices when it comes to a few key areas.

Here are the features we'd like to see on the next Apple Watch.

Apple has maintained its leading position when it comes to the smartwatch market, as a recent report from Strategy Analytics indicates. The iPhone maker accounted for 50.7% of the global smartwatch market in the fourth quarter of 2018, while Samsung owned 13.2% of the market and Fitbit was responsible for 12.7%. Global smartwatch sales hit a record 18 million units during that quarter, an annual increase of 56%. Apple may be the leader in the space, but there are still a few areas where the Apple Watch falls behind its rivals. Although Apple has added several improvements to the watch in recent year that make it a top-notch fitness tracker, it's still not quite as comprehensive as Fitbit's wearables, for example. If history is any indication of what's in store for 2019, we can expect to see a new and improved version of Apple's smartwatch debut during its annual iPhone event in September. Apple has introduced a new Apple Watch every September since 2016 after unveiling its first Apple Watch during that month in 2014, which it released the following spring. Little has been reported about what Apple may be planning for upcoming watch models, but a recent report from Bloomberg suggests that sleep tracking could arrive in 2020. The usually reliable Ming-Chi Kuo of TF International Securities also suggests a new ceramic casing for Apple's watch could come in 2019. Here's a look at some of the features we'd like to see Apple add to the Apple Watch in 2019 and beyond.
