At CES 2023, Citizen unveiled its latest range of CZ Smart smartwatches. Designed to function with its new proprietary YouQ app, the watches were developed using IBM Watson Studio and NASA technology.
The built-in AI “self-care advisor” serves to help users “maximize daily potential” by learning one’s chronotype (preferred timing of sleep and wake) through IBM Watson’s neural networks. The seven to ten-day monitoring period processes sleep data and info from custom-designed alert monitor tests (a consumer version of NASA’s PVT+ test created at the Ames Research Center Fatigue Countermeasures Laboratory). The data is then used to create a dynamic recognition model on the YouQ app to recommend “Power Fixes” that will help reduce fatigue and improve alertness.
The second-generation Citizen CZ Smart watches come in 44mm sport and 41 casual models, which can be outfitted with mesh bracelets, links, or silicone straps. The watches feature 1.3-inch AMOLED displays, and Snapdragon Wear 4100+ processors with 8GB of storage running Wear OS. With over 24 hours of battery life and fast charging, the watches are outfitted with a gyroscope, altimeter, barometer, accelerometer, heart rate sensor, and SP02 ambient light sensor. Compatible with both Apple iPhone and Android devices, the watches come loaded with the YouQ wellness app, Strava, Spotify, YouTube Music, and Amazon Alexa.
Priced between $350 and $375 USD, the second-generation CZ Smart watches will be available via Citizen later this March.
