Light Level Indicator
See how much light—and power—your dial is getting.
See how much power your watch is generating by checking how much light it is exposed to on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. CITIZEN is a pioneer in light-powered technology and this unique function reflects our special relationship with light.
Eco-Drive Light-powered Technology
No cable-based charging. No replacing batteries.
Eco-Drive Bluetooth charges from any kind of light. That means no need for replacing batteries or for cable-based recharging. CITIZEN’s proprietary light-powered technology, Eco-Drive generates power from any kind of light—from sunlight to dim light—to drive the watch, storing the surplus in a rechargeable cell. On a single full charge it can run for up to six months in total darkness.*
*Some models run for less than six months.
CITIZEN Bluetooth History
CITIZEN as a Bluetooth Watch pioneer
We at CITIZEN enjoyed the ongoing challenge of our craft, and we share a passion to bring something “better” to people’s lives—whether that is superior comfort and functionality, or timepieces that inspire a sense of wonder.
With such spirit of watchmaking, in 2006, CITIZEN invented the world's first bluetooth watch named "i：VIRT", a watch that can link with mobiles through Bluetooth(R) and notify incoming call and E-mail. Since then, we have improved and even invented new technologies, and achieved the world's first in this field.
