Citizen has launched CZ Smart as the Japanese firm's first smartwatch. It has been launched in the US and features a round display with three physical buttons on the right side. The case is made from stainless steel and the wearable comes in a single size. You get three dial colour options, one of which comes with a stainless steel bracelet, while the other two come with silicone straps. CZ Smart is powered by the now last-generation Snapdragon 3100 processor. The smartwatch runs on Wear OS by Google.
CZ Smart is priced at $395 (roughly Rs. 29,300) for the sole 46mm variant. It comes in three options – gunmetal and ion-plated stainless steel case and bracelet, silver-tone stainless steel case with black silicone strap, and silver-tone stainless steel case with blue silicone strap. CZ Smart is currently up for pre-orders in the US and will go on sale in the country from December 14.
As of now, Citizen has not shared any information on international availability.
