Citizen, one of the world’s leading watchmakers announced the launch of its innovative new Bluetooth Watch for lovers of the brand in the Middle East. With its innovative design, smooth curved lines, captivating blue shade that contrasts well with the hands and numerals, this smartphone-linked watch is one smart gadget. Citizen’s Bluetooth Watch brings together the power of interconnected technology to the analogue watch, which has all the traditional advantages that it enjoys over the digital format. The smartphone link makes this a watch that fits into the hectic lifestyles of today’s tech savvy watch user.
The watch is easily linked through the smartphone app which can be installed on any smartphone to complete the link up. Once the link is established, the wearer can enjoy not only auto-time correction locally but in 316 cities across the world. All incoming calls, emails or messages to the phone can be monitored through the watch which notifies the wearer through vibration, sound or movement. The most unique factor about Citizen’s Bluetooth Watch that sets it apart from its rivals is its light-powered Eco-Drive technology that generates power from any light source, artificial, natural and even dim light so no cable charging is necessary. Once fully charged, the watch will keep running for up to 4 years (on power save mode), freeing users from regular battery changes and daily cable charging.
Citizen Eco-Drive Bluetooth Watch can link with a smartphone through the official app for Citizen Bluetooth Watch. This is a watch that combines the best of analogue and smart functionalities. When the watch is connected with a smartphone, the time on the watch automatically updates to the current time (home time). Plus just by touching the world map inside the app, the watch is then set to the time of the city selected (local time). The app covers 316 cities worldwide, including Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).
The alarm of the watch can be simply and intuitively set from the app and can be set for a different time for every day of the week. Via sound, vibration, or hand movement, it lets a user know when there is an incoming call. The smart filter function can be used to specify which callers the trigger an incoming alert. There is also a Message Notification when a user gets an email, text, or SNS (Social Networking Service) notification.
The watch helps users find his/her smartphone by notifying the phone to emit a sound to alert its location. (Range limitations apply to this function.) When a user is about to leave without his/her smartphone, the watch will warn him/her by emitting a sound, vibrating or rotating the hands. The user can also see how much power the watch is generating by checking how much light it is exposed to on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.
