Garmin is hoping its new line of smartwatches will strike a chord with the kind of thrill seekers you might find flying planes and racing cars -- and we might assume they're expensive planes and cars, given the high asking prices. The new MARQ collection , as it's called, is geared toward pilots, ship captains, explorers and athletes. The smartwatches range from $1,500 to $2,500 and can supposedly do everything from calculate your performance vehicle's average speed to send email notifications while you zip around a racetrack.
Somewhere out there is a person willing to pay $2,500 for a smartwatch. Surprisingly, that individual has several high-end options from which to choose. And while the Garmin name doesn’t exactly scream luxury, the company does know how to build a solid smartwatch — and these look pretty decent, to boot.

Preloaded with Garmin’s latest and most detail-rich cartography—both LakeVü g3 maps and BlueChart® g3 charts with integrated Navionics® data and Auto Guidance1 technology— the ECHOMAP Ultra series has the power and functionality to meet the demands of today’s anglers.
The history of GoPro (NASDAQ:GPRO) stock has become one of excitement, but it is not the kind of activity that a GoPro action camera can capture. Competition from device makers took GoPro stock from almost $100 per share into penny stock status.The release of a new action camera and a move to profitability have helped to take GPRO back above $6 per share. While a continued recovery for GoPro remains possible, investors will find it difficult to profit from GoPro stock under either of the two most likely scenarios for a rebound.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsSmartphones initially could not replicate the quality and functionality of an action camera. For this reason, GoPro enjoyed initial success. However, as smartphones improved over time, consumers lost interest in standalone cameras, and GoPro's sales numbers dropped. Consequently, GoPro stock fell from a high of over $98 per share in 2014 to a low of $4 per share in a timespan of just over four years. * 15 Stocks Sitting on Huge Piles of Cash Today, GoPro stands as an $875 million company competing with the biggest names in tech. Despite this disadvantage, they have managed to turn profitable and produce what many see as the best action camera available. However, this leaves only two likely outcomes for GPRO, and both will make it difficult for investors to profit from GPRO stock. Is GPRO the Next Garmin?One option involves a hope that GPRO will become the Garmin (NASDAQ:GRMN) of the action camera space. In many respects, GoPro has followed in Garmin's footsteps. Garmin saw its stock plunge after the features of its GPS device found their way into smartphones.To stay in business, Garmin turned to niche GPS products. Often used for sporting purposes, these devices did not attract the interest of smartphone companies. In time, this turned GRMN stock around. Now, GoPro has begun to pursue a similar strategy.Those who see GPRO as the next Garmin have a reason for hope. In the action camera market, the new Hero7 stands out above its rivals. Moreover, the company's moves into video editing and content creation have also attracted attention. The Buyout CaseOn the financial front, the recent turn to profitability also appears impressive. Profits take the forward price-to-earnings (PE) ratio to about 20. Over the next five years, Wall Street forecast average profit increases of 10% per year for the next five years. Some might buy GoPro stock on these metrics alone.However, these multiples also open up the possibility of a different scenario--a buyout. Current valuations price the stock at a level where a firm such as Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOGL, NASDAQ:GOOG) or Xiaomi (OTCMKTS:XIACF) could purchase the company.Products such as GoPro cameras tend to fare better with an ecosystem to facilitate device functionality and the sharing of media. All three of these companies can provide such an ecosystem. Risks for GoPro StockStill, despite these scenarios, the future for GPRO remains uncertain, and buying GoPro in hopes of either situation panning out is a questionable strategy.For one, the company's attempts to stay relevant have not always led to successes. For example, the company tried to add action cameras to drones, but the idea failed to take off. Such failures reduce the likelihood that GoPro stock will see a recovery like the one Garmin experienced.Moreover, buying a company in hopes of a buyout remains a tricky situation. Sure, they could announce a buyout tomorrow. However, prospective buyers could also hold out for more stock price declines in hopes that they could buy at a lowered price. Given that possibility, a further drop in the stock price is not out of the question. The Bottom LineWhile I expect GoPro products will stay on the market for the foreseeable future, it may not necessarily lead to a surge in GPRO. Given the benefits of an ecosystem, I see a buyout as the more likely scenario to occur.The more technology improves, the greater the need for product research funding and the need for an ecosystem. Although GoPro retains a product edge for now, larger and better-funded peers could catch up or surpass them in time.Garmin continues to deal with this issue as mega-cap competitors take an increasing interest in their product niches. For this reason, one has to assume the competitive threat would remain for GoPro as well. A buyout eliminates that worry. It would also provide funding for product improvements and an ecosystem for camera output.In either case, action photography enthusiasts will continue to benefit from GoPro products. Just don't expect that to pay off for holders of GPRO stock.As of this writing, Will Healy did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned stocks.

Shares of Fitbit (NYSE:FIT) started 2019 out with a bang on optimism regarding Versa smartwatch sales during the holiday season. Fitbit stock rallied from a sub-$5 low in late 2018, to nearly $7 by mid-February.Source: Shutterstock But, around that time, I warned that the rally in Fitbit stock was on its last legs, and that the "next big move in the stock will likely be lower." Fast forward three weeks. The next big move in Fitbit stock has happened, and it was a big move lower.Fitbit reported disappointing holiday quarter numbers in late February that included flat revenue growth, tepid device growth, continued gross margin erosion, and a weak guide which implied that the big turnaround everyone was hoping for, will progress a lot more slowly than expected. Fitbit dropped big in response. It now trades under $6, or about 15% off its pre-earnings highs.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 7 Top Stocks to Buy From Goldman Sachs' Secret Portfolio Unfortunately, this drop is only the beginning. The company's fourth quarter numbers and guide illustrate a dour reality for Fitbit. Simply, the wearables market has largely moved on without it and growth going forward will be tepid at best.When it was up at $7, Fitbit stock was priced for big growth. Down at $6, the stock isn't priced for big growth anymore. But, it still isn't priced for tepid growth, either.Instead, tepid growth isn't appropriately priced in until around a $5 price tag. Thus, until Fitbit stock drops to $5, it's best to stay on the sidelines. The Numbers Aren't GoodThere were murmurs that a Versa smartwatch boom was going to drive really strong holiday numbers, which would pave the path for a potential 2019 turnaround through a strategic smartwatch pivot.None of that is happening. Instead, revenue growth was flat in the fourth quarter, with all growth coming from the still nascent Asia-Pacific market (all other developed markets saw revenues drop year-over-year). Device sold growth was 3%. Average selling prices dropped 2%. Gross margins took a big hit thanks to the smartwatch shift.In other words, even during what was supposed to a blockbuster turnaround quarter for Fitbit thanks to its best product yet, the company still barely grew.The guide implied things won't get better any time soon. Device sold growth is expected to be only mildly positive in 2019, while ASPs are expected to keep dropping. Revenue growth is expected in the low single digit range. Gross margins are guided to keep falling. Operating leverage will continue, but at a lesser rate.Overall, the takeaway is clear: the big Fitbit turnaround isn't coming. Instead, there is a mini-Fitbit turnaround happening right now. But, that turnaround is characterized by low single digit top line growth and continued gross margin pressures.There are plenty of reasons behind this tepid turnaround, most of which have to do with the fact that the wearables market has simply fallen in love with other products, and Fitbit's share in this market is becoming increasingly niche. Nonetheless, the numbers don't lie, and the numbers imply that growth will be largely unimpressive going forward. The Valuation Still Has Room to FallFitbit still isn't priced appropriately considering its tepid long term growth prospects.The math here is simple. We are talking about a $1.5 billion revenue company that is projected to grow at a low single digit rate over the next several years. At best, that puts revenues around $1.8 to $1.9 billion by 2025. Gross margins are getting hit by the smartwatch pivot, but have potential to stabilize around 40%. Assuming opex dollars continue to drop towards $600 million by 2025, that would equate to a 32-33% opex rate.Putting all that together, a realistic best case scenario for Fitbit is $1.85 billion in revenues by 2025 on high single digit operating margins. Reasonably speaking, that could flow into around $0.40 in EPS by 2025.Based on competitor Garmin's (NYSE:GRMN) average forward P/E multiple of 18, that equates to a 2024 price target for Fitbit stock of just over $7. Discounted back by 10% per year, that equates to a fiscal 2019 price target of just under $5.As such, Fitbit stock isn't worth considering in 2019 until it drops below $5. Bottom Line on FIT StockFitbit stock yet again hit a wall called reality in late February, and the stock is feeling the aftershocks of that head-on collision. These aftershocks will stick around because the valuation is still too big considering the company's long term growth prospects. A drop to $5 within the next few months seems likely.As of this writing, Luke Lango did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.
