·4 min read

As a leading pioneer in watchmaking, Citizen introduces its latest innovation: CZ Smart – the brand’s first full digital display smartwatch. This is the latest introduction from Citizen who in 2012 introduced CITIZEN Eco-Drive Proximity, the world’s first analog watch with Bluetooth® capability. This men’s smartwatch marries powerful technology with quintessential Citizen design to fit a modern lifestyle. Inspired by the rich design heritage of Citizen’s iconic sport timepieces, CZ Smart features a rugged bezel and anodized aluminum top ring. A touchscreen display dial is framed by a 46mm case crafted in 316 stainless steel. The menu of proprietary and customizable dials lend design details from past Citizen collections: Active, Dashboard, Neo and Retro. CZ Smart is available in three models including a gunmetal ion-plated bracelet, a black silicone strap and a blue silicone strap.
