Available in two styles (black or stainless), the Citizen Eco-Drive Proximity watch is loaded with all of the features expected from Citizen that include several technological advances.

Primary of these is an ability to download the watch’s application, which allows you to connect it to your iPhone 4s or iPhone 5, through Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy sync.

Perfect for travellers, it means that time zones are altered automatically on both phone and watch. However, this device puts a couple of extra tricks up your sleeve, the first of which is a phone ringing alert (no noise, just a gentle vibration, with incoming calls or messages, noted by a useful on-watch indicator).

If you have ever ‘misplaced’ your mobile, a ‘watch-find’ feature will help you locate it.

This watch never needs a battery, has a perpetual calendar, is 100m water resistant and is available online from WatchShop.com, priced at £399 with free shipping within the UK.
