Citizen announced a new smartwatch that brings the best of NASA and IBM Watson’s neural networks to help you gauge your wellness, fatigue and sleep patterns. Citizen CZ Smart works alongside the CZ Smart YouQ app for Android and iOS to help determine the wearer’s current energy score and forecast the remainder of the day.
The watch also features brief gamified tests based on NASA’s Psychomotor Vigilance Task Test (PVT+) used by the space agency to determine the mental alertness of astronauts. The watch tracks user activity patterns and sleep schedules to develop “Power Fixes” to help the wearer stay alert and battle fatigue. Users will get timely suggestions on when to rest and the ideal time to workout.
Citizen CZ Smart comes in 41mm and 44mm sizes with both models featuring a 1.3″ AMOLED touchscreen and boasts the Snapdragon Wear4100+ chipset as well as 8GB onboard storage. You also get heart rate and SpO2 sensors as well as a gyroscope, barometer and accelerometer.
The watch boots Google’s WearOS and comes with built-in Strava, Spotify, YouTube Music and Amazon Alexa apps. Citizen claims you can expect over 24 hours of battery life while a full charge should take around 40 minutes.
Citizen CZ Smart will arrive in the US in March 2023. Pricing starts at $350.
