With their innovative design and ease of use, the Citizen Bluetooth watches are carving their mark in the global watch market. Manufactured by Citizen Watch Co. Ltd., a Japanese watch brand founded in 1930 by Japanese and Swiss investors, the Citizen Bluetooth offers ‘smart’ and environmentally-friendly watches with cutting-edge designs.
Featuring all the functionalities of an analogue watch, the Citizen Bluetooth has an added convenience of a smartphone link. Simply install the official app on your phone to link your watch and enjoy various features, including auto-time correction not only locally but in all cities all over the world.
One of its greatest features, however, is its light-powered Eco-Drive technology that charges the watch by solar power. The Citizen Bluetooth is one that truly re-defines watchmaking technology. So sit back as we bring you the latest models in the Citizen Bluetooth collection that guarantees you nothing but the best.
Citizen Bluetooth BZ1045-05E
Running on the Calibre W770 Eco-Drive movement, the Citizen Bluetooth BZ1045-05E is a handsome watch with a unique design and colour motif. Its second, minute and hour hands don a bright tropical green colour with a little touch of white at their tips. Indexes are also in white which complement perfectly with the hands. In addition, the BZ1045-05E features a 1 second chronograph, dual time (second time zone), 12/24 hour time, as well as alarm and date functions.
Made of titanium, the casing is enclosed by screw-back design and protected with a sapphire crystal glass to prevent scratches. It also has a water-resistance of 100 metres, which makes it an excellent choice for those who love water sports. The watch also comes with a polyurethane strap which allows it to rest nicely on your wrist for maximum comfort.
Citizen Bluetooth BZ1041-57E
Another notable model in the collection is the Citizen Bluetooth BZ1041-57E. This timepiece stands out with its matte black guilloché dial featuring sword-shaped skeleton hands and luminescent-coated stick indexes.
Running on an Eco-Drive solar quartz movement, the watch can be charged using any light source and can last for several months after each charge. Similar to the other Bluetooth Mobile Link citizen watches, the BZ1041-57E can be connected with a smartphone or PC to enhance its functionality. Other useful features include an alarm, perpetual calendar, date, as well as a chronograph. Finally, a stainless steel strap completes its silver sophistication.
Citizen Bluetooth BZ1034-52E
The Citizen Bluetooth BZ1034-52E is yet another timepiece worth your consideration. It owes its accuracy and precision to the Japanese solar quartz W770 calibre movement. Enclosed in a round titanium casing, the BZ1034-52E measures 44.4mm and features a black dial with luminous hands. It is protected with a sapphire crystal with anti-reflection coating and has a water-resistance of up to 100 metres.
As with all Citizen Eco-Drive watches, this watch can also be conveniently charged using solar power. It works well with its power saving function to ensure that the watch will last for a long time.
