Another "Feature" that is not cool is that is uses it's own email client for email notification. Works with Yahoo, Gmail and AOL that support IMAP protocol only. No luck with Hotmail. A workaround is to route your Hotmail to Gmail. It kind of work but I don't like it. For now, I do not have Hotmail notification.
The watch is nicely built and with good styling. I like it but would like to see some major improvement to the software.
I have sent this watch back to Citizen twice now, the last time was for it not charging, no matter where you left the watch to charge it would not.
Anyway, Citizen have been super great with their service and have replaced the watch for me with the latest firmware update.
So here's hoping all will be good now. I will get my new watch today (hopefully).
And now we wait and see.....Stay tuned!

He says the watch is very comfortable and was extremely impressed with the Bluetooth feature
If you want to get an idea what options the Bluetooth feature gives - simply download the free Citizen Proximity app. The vibrate features are OPTIONAL and you can adjust the settings on your phone.
The only bad thing is that you have to hit "connect" after 6 hours (a feature used to save the battery) but that's not a hassle. The watch connects quickly and the Bluetooth feature is a huge advantage when he's working all day and receiving calls & messages.
Looks - the watch is beautiful. The face has a lot of depth and layers which catch the eye from every angle. I've only worn it for a day and I've already received more complements than I care to count.
Function - I bought the watch from Discount Watch Sellers (Amazon store). Either the watch doesn't come with an instruction manual (which it DEFINITELY needs) or they didn't include one. Anyway, about a half hour after finding the owner's manual via Google, I had my time and calendar set. I'm the type of person who can usually ignore the instructions and figure out how to set up my devices, but this one definitely required some ink and paper. Highly complex to set up, but once you've done it, it's fairly easy to remember what you did.
Long story short, if this watch were easier to set up, I would have given it five stars. Since it's so complicated, I decided to give it four.
A nice enough looking watch and I like the Eco-Drive. I have two other earlier Eco-Drive models. But the Bluetooth one pays extra for on this model is just not ready for day-to-day use.
I received it a Christmas gift. So, I may keep it only for that reason. If I had bought it I'd be shipping it back as a defective product.
I really like Citizen watches, now owning 4 eco-drives, but this one is a miss.
BTW, Amazon did deliver on time.
