Citizen CZ Smart: A US$395 smartwatch with a Wear 3100 chipset
Watchmakers, bar Mobvoi, continue to do WearOS a disservice. To date, the TicWatch Pro 3 GPS is the only smartwatch to launch on the new Snapdragon Wear 4100 platform, which is a vast improvement from Qualcomm's outdated Wear 2100 and Wear 3100 platforms. Citizen has now unveiled its first WearOS smartwatch, and it uses the two-year-old Wear 3100 chipset.
The Citizen CZ Smart retails for US$395, for which you will receive a smartwatch with a 1.28-inch AMOLED screen covered in Corning Gorilla Glass 3 that resolves at 416 x 416 pixels. The 1.28-inch display corresponds to a 46 mm watch face, for reference. Citizen has included 8 GB of storage, but it is silent of how much RAM the CZ Smart has.
Additionally, the CZ Smart has built-in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and NFC. Citizen has equipped the smartwatch with a heart rate monitor and a gyroscope, among other sensors, along with a speaker and microphone for use with Google Assistant.
The Citizen CZ Smart is available to pre-order now. We would not recommend spending US$395 on a Wear 3100 smartwatch, though.
