With the success of CZ Smart Wear OS, Citizen introduces its newest smartwatch – a hybrid with an analog display. With the aesthetic of a Citizen sport watch, it provides the exceptional design we have come to expect from Citizen while delivering technology, feature-rich convenience.
Citizen’s newest innovation is distinctive in that it marries the style of a traditional timepiece with the technical capabilities of a smartwatch. With these modern features, the smartwatch has the look and feel of a sport timepiece with analog hands that snap to the sides to reveal notifications. The 44mm stainless steel case features a standout bezel with bold numerical design. Offered in both silver-tone stainless steel and black ion-plated stainless steel, this smart timepiece is a true showstopper. The integrated silicone strap with hexagon inlay pattern, contours to fit your wrist and is available in a range of stylish colors: black, bright white, navy and hunter green. The watch features a large black and white display that eliminates glare, making it easier to read the screen in daylight. Compatible with both iPhone and Android phones.
The hybrid provides its wearer with health and wellness monitoring through a built-in heartrate sensor and accelerometer. Continuous heartrate monitoring, step tracking, workout tracking, calories burned, and advanced sleep monitoring keep wearers on track with their fitness goals – they can even monitor their daily, weekly, and monthly activity with the Citizen Connected app, which syncs with Google Fit and Apple Health.
One of the most unique features of the Hybrid is its robust battery life. To eliminate the need for daily charging, the CZ Smart Hybrid has an impressive 15-day battery life and comes with a 40-minute quick charging cable. The Citizen Connected app seamlessly syncs with Bluetooth connection within 30 feet, and 5 customizable dials are created to fit any lifestyle and personality – with information including heart rate, steps, active minutes, day/date, a second time zone, weather and many more features. Receiving your smartphone notifications allows for convenience of at-a-glance with updates for calendar, email, text and other important alerts.
The watch will feature a golf app, with proprietary software that include US and Canada golf course locations along with information about course weather by the hour, wind speed and direction, yardage of hole and more. Citizen will continue to add special features to the software in coming months, with plans to launch further advancements to the Citizen Connected app in Spring 2022, giving each hybrid smartwatch owner an even more unique experience.
“The CZ Smart hybrid smartwatch is for those who want the accessibility of a smartwatch but prefer the elevated style of a traditional timepiece,” says Citizen Watch America President Jeffrey Cohen. “We are continuously creating new solutions for our customers’ needs. Many smartwatches on the market are only about functionality. This timepiece not only provides the functionality our consumers are asking for, but also makes a statement with superior Citizen design and style. It embodies Citizen’s commitment to excellence and the drive for continued innovation.”
