Still needs work

Overall this product is ok if you are a light tech user and like the design. The watch design is good and it can pass off well in professional settings. The battery life is definitely a great strength as it has lasted me for about 2 weeks without charging. However, there are a few issues: Weather widget: The weather widget only works in certain countries. I found that it doesn't work if you are traveling to parts of Asia. I cannot testify to other locations however. Watch face: Only some watch faces are customizable. For example, that watch face you see here (the default with 3 hexagon widget areas) are not customizable which means one of the best watch faces, in my opinion, as set widget options. Responsiveness: Sometimes that watch lags and the hands can get stuck in the menu. However, this is not very common and a brief wait will resolve the issue. Connection distance: This watch has a short connection distance with your phone. I can leave my phone on my table and go 1 floor above in the same house and the watch will lose connection. This makes the phone finding feature almost useless because when you are looking for your phone, chances are the watch has already lost connections with it. CZ Smart YouQ App: Citizen puts quite amount of work on promoting this app. In concept, this app offers a lot of great health monitoring options beyond the CZ Connect App. However, in execution, this app does not work well with the hybrid watch. To set up the watch you need to use the CZ Connect App. This is easy enough as this app gets the watch into paring mode. However, you also need the paring mode for the YouQ app. But the YouQ app doesn't push the watch into paring mode if you are already connected with CZ Connect. If you did manage to connect the watch to YouQ, it then asks you to install Android Fit on your watch to access health tracking. This is not possible on the hybrid watch. Without Android Fit, YouQ cannot give you data to monitor anything. All in all, if you are willing to make compromises on the things I listed above for the clean look and battery life, I say go for this watch. If not, I suggest look elsewhere.

Good but not great

This watch is sharp looking and I was excited to get it. In order to get this watches full functionality you need to download not one but two apps. The citizen app allows you to customize the watches face which is really cool with a ton and of options. When you want to see things such as how well you slept, power score, chronotype, and more you need to go to the other app. All in all, it’s cool watch with a ton of customizable options, the ability to see workouts, and help keep track of your health. Personally I feel a person needs to be tech savvy and not minding being on their phone for the different options. If everything was in one app I would like and feel more people would enjoy it.
